H.S. Buccaneer S2B (Airfix 1:48)


Megan Harris
That cockpit detail is absolutely insane! How do you do it?
22 April 2020, 21:49
Hi Megan. I used a resin cockpit set from Neomega as the Airfix one had basically no detail on it and I'm planning to have an open cockpit. Just had to take my time carefully painting the panels and dials. Had some fitment issues with some of the side walls but once inside the fuselage it won't be noticeable 🙂

Nice work so far & good notes on the construction too.

Umm, wow. That is some incredible work there. I have always wanted to do a Bucc, but had been waiting on Tanmodel to release one, which may never happen as it seems. But you are knocking this one out of the park!

this looks like a lot of work - but will be a rewarding outcome for sure, taking a seat 👍

Thanks Nathan, Michael.
@Daniel, this kit has a lot of work, nothing fits properly so you have to love filling and sanding. And then I somehow got into riveting the whole thing which added so much more work...I hope to have everything assembled in the next week ready for painting.

Looks like a massive amount of work, but it surely paid out so far - great detailwork in the cockpit and wheel wells! 👍

I've got to get that refueling probe/pitot set. It looks much nicer than the kit part!

sorry playtime later Buccs had eagles.

Thanks all for the comments. Just started with the decals, decided to get the Kits-World decals sets as the kit's decals has seen better days being over 25 years old...

Time to finish this baby, she's been sitting on the half build shelf long enough...

Fanstic build. A real labour of love. Looking forward to the final reveal.

Looks delicious! Can't wait to see it finished.

Clifford Keesler
Agree, can't wait to see it done.
2 December 2020, 00:15
I have this kit is my stash as well. I see you used a few aftermarket sets from Eduard and others. Which of these do you find the most useful, now that it is done?

Your model is very well done, it motivates me to start on mine 🙂
10 December 2020, 10:21
Just lovely.. so nice to see one of these coming out
14 December 2020, 13:33
She's finally finished 🙂
Thanks @Augie.
@Francky, I would definitely get the Neomega cockpit and wheel well resin set as the kit's are very basic, the Airwaves speed brakes PE set as well as the Master pitot tube and refueling probe. I only used a few parts of the Eduard PE sets.

That's a build to be proud of Celliers. Well done.

Brill build.

Clifford Keesler
I agree with everyone just a beautiful build.
15 December 2020, 02:24
@Celliers: and my wishlist just got a bit longer 🙂 Thanks for the info.
15 December 2020, 10:09
Fantastic job! Well done for wrestling this kit into shape.

Great job - Notes taken. I have 2 of these cos I was lucky enough to get the accidental double boxing.
15 December 2020, 15:54
Thanks @Nathan, @David, @Clifford, @gorbygould.
@playtime 222 - lucky you getting 2 kits. I have another one that I'm going to build in SAAF colours, but not anytime soon. The next project better be easier than this one.
