EADS Barracuda UAV

EU Goes

European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) UAV project is a joint venture between Germany and Spain. Its official debut was at the 2006 ILA Berlin show. The prototype crashed into the sea during a test flight just off the Spanish coast on September 23, 2006. The program was resumed in 2008, with a second prototype being completed in November 2008. The rebuilt Barracuda underwent a series of successful flight tests in Goose Bay, Canada during July 2009,followed by further flight campaigns in 2010 and 2012.

This model kit is from AViS. Limited run I assume. Moulding is ok, but instructions are a bit sketchy (landing gears). I like to build these UAV kits while you don't have to mess with the cockpit.

    Very good and interesting rendition of a not to much seen subject. I'm on the same vision thought of Greg, the confused pilot image adds a nice touch to this plus serves as a great way to the viewer's understanding of the size.

  8. Interesting project IT - good to see!

  9. Wow, never ever heard of one of these. Very cool job, well done

  10. Thank you for kind words Sirs. Good note DE4EVER - pilot is for showing the size of this bizarre bird. And small scale humor is a happy bonus when available. 🙂
