Kit news – Airfix 1/72 Blackburn Buccaneer S Mk.2
An accurate, modern kit of the mighty Blackburn Buccaneer has been long overdue, and we were pleased to learn that Airfix is working on a new-tool kit of that Cold War era classic.
Addressing most of the issues which prevented the early Buccaneers from realizing their full potential, the S.2 was the definitive variant of the aircraft, boasting a modified wing, increased fuel capacity and a pair of more powerful Rolls Royce Spey engines.
Airfix has released this series of 3d renderings of the kit’s design. The final product is to be expected in September 2019.
