1/72 PX010 Maintrack Saunders-Roe SR.177 - (SR-177)
Vacuform Model Kit
Highly detailed vac kit with better mold quality than most injection molded kits. Includes cast metal details and decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The SR.177 was a further development of the SR.53. The SR177 combined rocket with turbine power. The 177 had a jet engine of significantly more power than the 53, so it could cruise without use of the rocket motor. The interceptor was to be armed with two Firestreak missiles. Although British air policy changed, the work continued due to German interest in the project. However, the program was dropped when Germany went with the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter.
