Airfix 1/72 Buccaneer (old mold)

1/72 Airfix Royal Navy Buccaneer S2C, 800 NAS, HMS Eagle, June 1971

100 Year RAF Anniversary GB – 1/72nd Revell Hawker Siddeley S Mk.2B Buccaneer

Kit news – Airfix 1/72 Blackburn Buccaneer S Mk.2

Buccaneer S.Mk 2B It is 1991,and the Buccaneer has been in operational service for nearly 30 years, but still had a vital part to play in the Gulf War. Initially it flew to support the Tornado force as a target designator, but also later droppe[...]

1/48 Airfix Buccaneer “Sea Witch Debbie”

Not a fall together kit, but with experience should pose no problems building. Definitely need a new tooled Brick! As our British cousins say "the only thing going lower than the Bucc is a submarine!"
