Airfix 1/48 Buccaneer

Post by cj9ru » Wed Feb 02, 2022 12:47 pm

Here is my 1/48 Buccaneer finished as XW530 the one that was until recently on display at Service Station in Elgin. Small cheat with the Pirate Art but I think it captures the look quite well. Spent a bit much on kit from EBay but been after one for ages. Now find out Airfix are to retool and release it in 1/48 again.
(Paul- you were correct .. the rear was a nightmare)

I like the way you dispaly your models, how have you mounted them?

Very small CCTV brackets with the metal disc only glued to aircraft. The rest of the bracket painted with same emulsion as wall. Needs a few coats as brackets are black but it makes a big difference

Here is the link. They have had a fair price hike since I bought them. I paid £7.99 for 5 !
They took about 2 weeks to arrive
