Trumpeter 1609 1/72 scale Tupolev Tu-142MR Bear J. U-142MR BEAR J - -- The TU-142MR was a further modification of the Tu-142M The prototype Tu-142MR 'Bear-J' was based on the airframe of the Tu-142MK, and used for submarine communication relay, allowing national command authorities and strategic missile-carrying submarines to communicate. The under fuselage search radar has been removed, and the aircraft is equipped with an under fuselage winch pod for a several kilometer long trailing wire antenna. It has a communications antenna in a spike fairing that project forward from the fin tip, and a trailing wire antenna (and associated winch package) located below the belly. Production Tu-142MRs are more like the Tu-142M-Z, with an under nose sensor package and ECM system antennas underneath the rear fuselage. Unlike all the other maritime 'Bears,' the production Tu-142MR has a solid radome in place of the usual nose glazing where a limited-range search/weather radar is probably housed to compensate for the lack of a Korshun system. Only a small number of Tu-142MRs were produced, and the prototype was delivered to the 76th Regiment along with early production aircraft. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one plastic model kit. The set requires both glue and paint in order to be completed. Paints and glue are not included. For modelers aged 14 and older
