1/72 4-89 Airfix Blackburn NA-39 Buccaneer - Craftmaster Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
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. Kit features opening unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook. The kit has never been assembled but has minor painting. NOTE: the inside walls of the cockpit have been painted. Paint quality is good. It could be painted over or stripped in DOT3 brake fluid or other safe stripper. There is no other painting. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. 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.
