    Hey there! 
    It's been a while, since I have any updates for you guys, regarding my 32 scaler Bucc Kit. I haven't done much, since things got bmvery busy for me, making scratch built models for customers. I have 4 on my workbench at the moment. Here in South Africa, we are also on a 3 week lockdown, and I hope to get these projects nearer to completion soon, so that I can get back into the Bucc.
    I will deffs keep you updated, however, there is a TONNE of stuff to do! 
     
    See ya real soon

    The 1/48 Airfix kit helps to see if I'm on par with the general shape.

    As promised, some pictures of the fuselage startingto take shape out of MDF. The Aerodynamix intakes are temporarily fitted as a guideline. Just to put the size in perspective, the Airfix 1/48 Buccaneer kit in the background.

    Hi everyone,
     
    I'm new here, and would like to share one of my current projects. I'm part of a group of enthusiasts that's busy with the restoration of the SAAF Buccaneer (Serial #416) at Air Force Base Ysterplaat in Cape Town. After spending years working on the actual aircraft I realized that the rather rare 1/32 Aerodynamics vac-form kit I have, does not quite measure up. So, decided to scratchbuild one.
     

     

     

     

     
     
     
     
    I did build this one before this out of alluminium litho plate as a once-off.
     

     

     

     
     
    Started with this new one, of which the fuselage will be made mostly from self made styrene vac-formed, photo-etched and resin parts.
    Here's some pics of what I have done so far.

    Thank you sooo much folks!! 
    This encouragement is seriously needed sometimes. Once I have completed the cockpit tub, ready for molding, I will post a photo of the Aerodynamix part, just for comparison. There is an awful lot going on in that area and I am trying to work out how to break it up for molding. I was thinking of the following seperate parts: instrument panel, instrument panel shroud, HUD, rudder pedals, cockpit floor with the side consoles, then the side panels, including that beautiful quilted soundproof layer and various instruments/boxes. Then the rear wall. Oh, and two nice bang seats.
