Inspired work on an old kit Pappy. Seriously impressive. The SAAF Bucc looked grand in that two-tone blue scheme and your work certainly captures it.

G'day people,

The big blue bird is done!, I have posted pics in the 'Completed Bricks' section of the group build. I would also like to publicly thank Andrew in Newcastle (Oz), Graeme (a.k.a 'Eng') and Vlamgat, for their help in providing a canopy, decals and much needed information, without these guys this build would not have happened, thanks fellas :thumbsup:

I have tried to make an accurate replica, but There are some dodgy areas in regards to the inner pylon bracing arrangements. I made a best guess here, so don't take it as 100% accurate. if anyone has more info, including pics/drawings, i would love to hear from you,

cheers,

Pappy
