Enzo the Magnificent Posted April 24, 2020 Share Posted April 24, 2020 This will be an RAF Buccaneer S.2B based in Germany, in the classic RAF tactical camouflage. I will be using the new tool Airfix kit for this conversion. An S.2B cannot be built directly from the kit, so there will need to be some resin conversion bits. Air Graphics have released sets for the bulged bomb bay and RAF style slipper tanks. I have them on order but Air Graphics tell me they could take a little while to arrive due to the global situation at the moment. If they don't arrive by the time I need them, then I will use the relevant parts from the old tool Airfix release: Strictly speaking, the bomb bay door does not fit the new tool kit, but using my usual mix of brute force and ignorance, I reckon I can get it in there! Another big difference is the tailplane, which has an enlarged rear fairing. I will be using the tailplane from an Odds And Ordnance / Alley Cat set intended for the old tool Airfix kit. This will requite a modicum of surgery to the new tool kit's fin. I now have to decide between XV or 16 Sqn. Incidentally, I wouldn't have to do all this if I simply waited for the new Airfix S.2B boxing. But I've never been very patient! 14 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
