Continuing with my theme of building aircraft I worked on during my time in the RAF. This is the Buccaneer from 1984-86 starting at the time the OCU moved from Honington to Lossiemouth. XX899 came from the RAFG fleet to the OCU. After going through the avionics update it was used by 12 Sqn and was one of the Granby aircraft, marked as P "Laser Lips Laura". I've built it in the war role fit for Pavespike designation. We went on many detachments to Laarbruch for maxivals or tacevals, practising the role. I had to source an AIM 9B Sidewinder and Lau 3B launcher for the self defence armament. Again I threw lots of aftermarket bits at it to hopefully improve the end result. I went through the usual well documented trials with this kit, but with sheer perseverance it was finished Along with the photographed AM stuff, the aircraft specific decals were made by Paul at Parkes682decals. Thanks for looking. Rob.
