  1. Freightdog do the WE set for Airfix Buccaneer, the fairings were the same colour as the underside scheme.
  2. 008 & 009 were the reserve aircraft for Ark Royals 892NAS not unown for training flights to her in home waters ,I have a shot of PTF aircraft landing on while working up for final commission.
  3. The only shore base would have been RAE Bedford ,which had a raised simulated Ark Royal deck with steam catapult launch system & arrestor wires . It was used by the FAA for training early Phantom pilots.
  4. Yes it is printed on soiled sheet but full instructions are given how to use it. Thanks for the glue tip I will try & source some .
  5. I also have the 1/72 kit it is very impressive & a new way of construction with small brass pins ,fit is amazing on the components. I have also received Oldmodels decal sheet from NZ to complete it. Which is the best glue to use on 3D printed plastic? As donot want to damage the kit.
  6. Yes it returned to RAFBG I have pictures of it on farewell flight from Lossiemouth in this scheme. Which she still has at the FAA museum.
  7. You will need the larger long range tanks ,they had rocket assisted drop down packs behind the bomb Bay & larger droppler radar on abox replacing the original.

  16. I remember these aircraft well & always liked them dropping off troop & Landrovers on exercises. I have just purchased the Oneman models 1/72 C1 & I am really impressed with it ,awaiting decals from New Zealand so your pictures are very apt thanks for sharing.
  17. They were 702NAS which was the OCU for the Lynx HAS2/8 thus duel control . The black cats did not carry a RO in the port seat .
  18. I helped with the decals for this model, the aircraft were standard HAS 3 /8 the dual controls were fitted as required in pilot training, foot pedals & sticks for the instructor to use in an emergency, thus all other standard radar dials which the RO would use were still installed.
