Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Typical high quality Frog kit with no rivets and fine panel lines for a realistic model. Features steering nose strut, four anti-ship missiles on wing pylons, optional position landing gear, unique rotating bomb bay, folding wings and working arresting hook. Has decals for both Air Forces, No.12 Sq RAF Honington, 1970 and No. 24 Sq SAAF Waterkfloof, 1970. NOTE: this kit has "professional" quality sub assembly as follows: cockpit tub; missile halves; nose and tail cone halves; wing and rudder halves and main gear doors glued in the 'closed' position. There is no other assembly. The actual aircraft has been inventoried complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: missing display stand. 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.
