Des Posted March 7 Share Posted March 7 Apologies if this has popped up elsewhere on BM but could not see anything. Key Publications have recently released a Step-By-Step-Guide - Buccaneer - Building Airfix's New Tool Plastic Kits bookazine which includes two-page coverage of the new sprue for the 1/48 Buccaneer S.2B expected later this year. This has an image of the complete sprue (F to replace existing E on the S.2C/D kit) along with close-up detail shots of various aspects - Bomb Bay door , five-part Sea Eagle ASM , Paveway II LGB , AIM-9L , Tail Hook fairing with integral Countermeasures dispensers , 'Scab-On' Countermeasures dispensers for wing pylons but not underside engine fairings , pylons , revised fin top. Not shown in close-up the image of the complete sprue also contains upper wing tank parts , AN/ALQ-101 and Pave Spike Pods , new radio hatch , underside airframe panel. It is also mentioned that the kit will retain the existing Sprue D with Martel , Guidance Pod , Free-fall and Retarded Bombs. The bookazine also includes a twenty-page 1/48 RAF S.2B build but this is a conversion from last year's S.2C/D release. 2 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
