Model Alliance's "RN & RAF Buccaneers S.Mk 2" sheet cover the long service of
this British aircraft through six subjects representing the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s
Equal prominence is given to RAF and RN subjects. Two of the RN aircraft are
finished in Extra Dark Sea Grey and White, with the remaining naval version in
the experimental "squirrel grey" scheme. Two of the RAF machines wear the
standard disruptive Dark Green and Dark Sea Grey upper surfaces with Light
Aircraft Grey underneath. The final very interesting Buccaneer is a Gulf War
veteran with hybrid makings and finished in Medium Sea Grey with a darker grey
under the wings.
The decals are beautifully printed and in perfect register. They are produced
by Fantasy Workshop in the UK.
The instructions maintain the same high standard. They are presented on three
sides of A4 paper, and include colour port side profiles for all six aircraft.
Top and bottom views of each scheme are also illustrated in colour.

This is an excellent production from Model Alliance that will
lend plenty of variety to the 1/48 scale Buccaneer.
Thanks to Jon Freeman or the preview images.
