I have been wittering on about this so I'd best get on wi' it The Matchbox S2 Buccaneer with the Maintrack resin conversion intakes to make an S1 from it The usual Lucky me got two sets of rather bleagh (unusually for Matchbox back then I always thought) transfers Of course none of them is relevant... In a moment of convivial community modelling I had this with me at club and decided to begin the conversion, hacking away at the front of the intake area and the forward wing roots Here is what I got in my bag from a gent on 'the 'bay' well no, not the Airwaves etch. That came from Big H and may be of use later A hunting the web session got me some drawings that needed careful rescaling One good, others to follow suit if the accuracy bit bites me in the sittupon I think they will be fine to work the rough changes from but when I need 'right' I can cope with a reset Here is the freshly reshaped forward fuselage ready for the intakes to be added and faired in As you see the bulgey bomb bay door is off and the new resin one about to be modified rectified I WAS going to hack out the engines that Matchbox moulded in but I have had a think and decided there will be enough beggaring about with the basics without adding extra angst... I don't think they look too awful anyway A bit of additional pipe details and some additional ducting, you won't even notice... Probably Look at this for instance Airbrakes to detail If I can work out how to separate the two horizontally sliced parts vertically Realistically I'm off now to research the Martin Baker Mk 6s which might be needed if I can make a floor and wheel well roof night all edit to add I hope this build doesn't get too bogged down but I already have a list...
