1/32 HS Buccaneer

Recommended Posts

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.

Jesus Christ on a bike! Absolutely fantastic, ignore the colonial heretics, it's a great looking plane. 

 

 

:lol: lol

 

I'm sure someone out there also thinks the Chilean Phalcon 707 / AKA the Jimmy Durante of planes is the prettiest plane around..........
