1/72 - Blackburn Buccaneer S.2 by Tanmodel - 3D renders - in design

Recommended Posts

As Graeme and Julien have already mentioned, the T-33 is the Platz kit, itself not the cheapest around, in the version with engine and dolly, again not the cheapest box. Tan added a new decal sheet and masks, and these add something to the cost. The cost of this box is therefore of very little use in predicting how much a Buccaneer from Tanmodel may cost.

I may also add that while £32 for a T-33 may sound expensive compared to the Airfix Phantom mentioned above, the difference in moulding quality between these two kits is very noticeable...

Dear forum members and our modeller friends;

I was thinking of informing you for some time but unfortunately it was not possible due to our busy works throughout the day. Therefore, I believe that it is the right time to share an explanation without further delay.

Buccaneer is the first project among those TANMODEL Ltd team (including me) loves very much and would like to offer you the best. We were planning to prepare the kit with a 1/72 scale of considering the British market, however we also put 1/48 scale kit project to our agenda due to strong demands from other markets. We would like you to know that there were no up-to-date kits in the market for a long time and that we prepared the 3D design very carefully and very detailed as the expectations increased, and that we designed some special part breakdowns for you. Besides, we would also have some surprises in the box. Of course we want to offer you these project with a reasonable sales price tag and we have some plans for this: For example, like opening a moldshop for ourselves in Istanbul (TURKEY). The reason for us to focus on local projects is not to finance our other projects but to create the technical infrastructure which would allow us to open a moldshop.

Would our projects be realized if we did not open our own moldshop? Of course our projects will be realized... Already we manufactured the 4 projects we launched before with the moldshops with which we cooperated. Another important detail: We are moving one step forward with each project and we are conducting R&D studies to increase the product quality (snap fit syle part fit designs, smooth plastic surface quality, slider-mold designs, P.E. detail sets etc.). We will use the experience we gained on our new projects such as Buccaneer and Su-33.

You may see all details of our Buccaneer project(s) on Scale Aircraft Magazine (SAM) which is the most attentive media follower of this project within a few months/issues.

(With respect to some messages/posts written under this topic) We do not find it ethical to make comments about other brands.

But we can say (write) that for now we may not have a fast manufacturing program but the properties you would find in a TANMODEL product will be: Scale-Shape accuracy, modeller friendly part breakdowns, full box content, fast or slowly accomplished projects.

Properties which you may not find in a TANMODEL product: Unstable product quality, empty box content, weird online marketing campaigns, manufacturing schedule-project changes focus on competitor brands.

We are following the messages you write on forums or in social media carefully and we are very happy about the ideas you declared. Forums are for this anyway and we are using the forums relevantly and we become online in forums for the following reasons:

1-      To announce our new projects and/or for updates

2-      To complete our missing information and to collect information from you (modellers/specialists)

3-      To provide you with correct information about us and to answer your questions.

Information required to follow us and to contact us are given below. Our doors are open 24/7, after all most modelers would confirm this :smile:
