  1. So, with the new Airfix Bucc on hold due to my 'mate', I decided to raid the stash to apply some newly released markings. This was along way down in the said stash.... I think this was the original release dated 1990 which is about right with them entering service in 89. (Where did that 30 years go ??? Brand new release at Telford, I had difficulty in getting a picture of these as the gloss carrier film is so reflective, which is more than can be said for the kit ones !! As Baldrick might have said, flatter than a flat thing on a flat day. Still they are nearly 30 years old and all I need is to coax the IP's off. Art work for said subject, having searched out ZF293 it looked to be quite a well worked A/C by the time it had these markings applied. Having opened the lid the nostalgia came flooding back just like the cracking builds of the classic US Navy kits, particularly as this was also moulded in white, well it was once !! I guess cream is more appropriate but the surface detailing is so fine,(open can of worms) but I guess this was one of the first mouldings. I think these are currently in the standard grey plastic if any one can confirm ? Now the Tucano has always been a tail sitter and the instructions state 7grms, but whilst removing parts from the box look what I found. Bonus, Now where did they appear from...... These are obviously the same vintage and are probably some of the first out but that means some where in the stash I have a kit with these and the U/C and prop set in.... So cockpit tub assembled rear stick appears to have gone AWOL - will rectify that but this is a build to show off the colour scheme One piece lower wing, again look at how fine those panel lines are Upper wings attached the plastic has almost a resin feel to it, not some thing I have come across before but then again haven't built many 30 year old kits ….. Canopy is nice and clear, just a dip in some Klear should do, cockpit tub off to the paint shop just aiming to get it the same shade as the IP on the Kits decal sheet More to follow
