  1. Hi mates, my next project will be the new 1:72 multi-media kit from Scale Resin of the Blackburn Buccaneer S.Mk.1. This is primarily a resin kit, but includes photoetch details, canopy masks, and a vacuformed canopy. At this point, I don't believe there is any need for any aftermarket accessories, everything needed is in the box. I previously built the 1:72 Buccaneer S.Mk.2 from CMR, which can be seen here, and even though Scale Resin is a brand of CMR Moulding & Casting, this kit is completely new. Incredible as it seems, the level of detail has been improved! I'm really looking forward to this build. My understanding is that CMR worked very closely with Andy White to ensure accuracy and authenticity. Andy, of course, runs an excellent Buccaneer web site and is a subject matter expert. Andy, if you're on BM, I hope you'll ride along on this build and make sure I don't cock it up! I haven't selected a markings scheme yet, but from a quick look at the instruction booklet, I need to do that soon as there are many detail differences between the available schemes. These require different parts at different stages of the build, so planning is essential. One scheme is intriguing - SN934, 801 Squadron, HMS Ark Royal, February - March 1963 Shakedown Cruise (Carrier Deck Trials). This scheme is overall Titanium White, not something you see too often on an FAA Buccaneer. But I really love Extra Dark Sea Grey... Here's the box art: Here are the resin parts: And the rest (photoetch, masks, canopy, booklet, and decal sheets): A couple of things that I've noted before we start - first, the speed brakes at the rear of the fuselage. These two petals have been designed so you can display them open and see all of the detail inside. However, just as on my S.Mk.2 build, the extremely thin (some might say "wafer" thin ) flat strakes have suffered damage in shipment, and I'll have to repair these or replace with card stock. CMR might want to look into another form of packaging to protect these extremely thin portions. Second, there is only one vacuformed canopy. Most CMR kits include two, in case you make a fatal error cutting it out. I like having this extra bit of security, and I can say that I've used it many times! I almost always screw up the first one and have to go to the second. I'm sure that it saves some money, but please go back to providing two canopies. I don't trust myself! OK, so let's get to work. Step Number 1 is to decide which markings scheme I want and also to decide if the wings should be folded or extended, canopy open or closed, refueling probe retracted or fixed, speed brake open or closed, and also whether the nose cone should be open or closed. Step Number 2 is very nice - CMR have indicated which surfaces will need to be sanded down in order to get a proper closing of the two fuselage halves. Nice! Now, where did I put my respirator? Time to get the parts off of their pour blocks... Cheers, Bill
