#707 Bayraktar TB2
Building the Clear Prop! 1:48 representation of the now iconic Bayraktar TB2 as used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The Bayraktar TB2 is a medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) capable of remotely controlled or autonomous flight operations. It is manufactured by the Turkish company Baykar Makina Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş., primarily for the Turkish Armed Forces.
It’s use by Ukraine since 2019 has now made it one of the most widely recognised military drones.
The Bayraktar TB2 from Clear Prop! was one of the first models of this now iconic bit of kit; probably the first with a full Ukrainian decal sheet and all the PE and resin one needs to pimp up the detail.
ClearProp are yet another Ukrainian manufacturer that cover a range of classic an obscure subjects, from the Gloster Pioneer to their latest Flogger-G. I think I was finally inspired to order a few of their kits when I saw Brett Green’s beautiful H72N Hawk build in Models for Ukraine Vol 1 published by @chris.meddings.

Now I’ve done fiddling with the build, I’m planning a better display. For now it looks pretty good, poised for take-off from a @proper.plane mouse pad;-)
