This U-2 TR-1 model airplane is a scale model replica of the original designed and produced by Lockheed. The U-2 spy plane was used by the CIA, USAF and NASA as it is was a reconnaissance plane used primarily during the Cold War. It was nicknamed the “Dragon Lady” because it was extremely unforgiving with respect to pilot ineptitude or incompetence. This is based upon the fact that it was flown within 5 kts. of the stall speed. Lockheed built 104 units.
This U-2 TR-1 replica aircraft arrives assembled, and it has an attractive base for model display. This highly accurate replica of the U-2 has been faithfully reproduced with pressure cast composite resin. Each model is meticulously crafted and painted following details of the original. The end result is a handsome, collectible sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
