Today it has been announced by the Humbrol Marfleet company in Yorkshire England that all TSR2 models recently sold to model enthusiasts around the world have to be recalled.
The UK Government has intervened in the production of the model stating that its manufacture contravenes a 1966 order which states all TSR2 aircraft, parts and TOOLS be destroyed. Because the TSR2 is moulded on a tool it has to be destroyed.
The managing director of Airfix kit, Roy Annoid, has stated that anyone with a kit has to return to its place of purchase. It does not matter if the kit is made, partially made or unmade, the kit has to be returned. Humbrol Marfleet may face fines of up to one million pounds per model not returned so there is keen interest in the Airfix camp to get them back.
Mr Annoid advised that, on return of the kit, the modeller will be presented with a voucher for a replacement kit. The kit will be an F111A which is more expensive but not quite as good as the TSR2 kit. Please go tofor more information
