 Czech Model Resin - CMR - 1/72 Blackburn/Hawker Siddely  Buccaneer S.2

809 NAS, RNAS Lossiemouth, April 1969


The model:

One could write quite a few pages of praise. But it could simply be shortend to: "Petr Buchar, CMR"!.
Whatever you want to know the answer is: Yes, excellent! A kit of outstanding quality. Unprecedented. A piece of model art.
Take for instance the instruction leaflet. 35 pages. The description itself covers "only" 7 pages, the rest are profiles of 10 different aircraft with all their different markings and weapons, photos of real aircraft and last not least 3 pages listing all colors for these aircraft.  The ejections seats are models itself. All straps and belts (quite a few!) are provided in photo etched parts. To mention just one highlight.
The decal sheet is large and comprehensive, offering markings for said 10 aircraft.

In one word: Unsurpassable! - On my side there is no doubt the two new Buccaneer S.2B kits to be released Feb. 2011 ("Avionics Upgrade" and "Operation Granby") will also be of highest standard.

There is just one small point of criticism: Concerning assembly the drawings are rather small so sometimes one has to guess which part has to be applied where.
