Fiannly got my hands on the new tooled Airfix Buccaneer and couldnt wait to start on it. The fit is pretty nice . Started with the cockpit section. Decatils are pretty nice . bHoles drilled out for the crew ladders . Small sink hole in the panel. No real good way to fix it. Kit called for rear instrument panel to be attached to front ejection seat . I found a way to mount thr rear instrument panel to the right nose section. That way the seats can be installed last and not worrying about parts being broke off during the build. Spent the last few days builing the tail section. airscoop on the spine was short shot. I cut the bad area off and replaced it with round plastic. Once dry and sanded to shape then I drilled the vent hole out witha drill bit . I didnt have and Admiralty gray so i used the Tamiya Lp-15 IJN Gray ( Yokosuka Arsenal ) which is pretty close . Now to paint detail before gloss coat and cockpit decals .

Finally some more updates on the Bucc. Got the landing geard and wheels assembled and test fitted on the Bucc to make sure nose weight was correct and the amout i added with a nut worked out . I went with the slip wing fuel tanks as they really look cool as well as rocket pods. Next i got tht crew ladders assembled and something seemed to be missing. Did some research and found the the ladders in the kit was missinga tow braces that goes in between the left and right side of the ladder mount. So now the ladders are complete. Few more things to get glued then i can start painting a bunch of subassembles 🙂
