Still factory sealed. One of the more dramatic Craftmaster boxes. A British carrier launches heavily battle-damaged Buccaneers with enemy ships within visual range. Other Buccaneers are taking heavy and accurate fire from the enemy, while one ship is engulfed in flames. Propeller driven aircraft fall burning from the sky. The Buccaneer was the world's first purpose designed low level 'below the radar' bomber. Low level strike aircraft have a shorter airframe life limit due to the stresses of low level flying, so the Buccaneer was designed to be very strong and even had many sub-assemblies milled from solid metal. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook.

Unique kit of this domestically produced Czech two seat fighter trainer based on the Me-109. When the Germans left Czechoslovakia in 1945, the Avia Works completed a small number of Bf-109G-6 and G-14 airframes with abandoned German engines. The single seat aircraft were designated S-99 and the two seater CS-99. Due to a shortage of DB-605 engines, Avia adapted Jumo-211 engines and the single seat S-199 and 2 seat CS-199 were born. First flown in 1949, 82 CS-199s were produced and remained in service till the mid 1950s when they were replaced by MIG-15UTI or CS-102 trainers. Kit includes detailed descriptions and markings markings for three historically significant aircraft. Cleanly molded with very fine raised panel line details and good dual cockpit detail. Nicely detailed. The model as never been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Although they certainly cannot compete with recent Tamiya or Hasegawa kits, they were nicely detailed for their time and can be built up into some beautiful and unique models.
