Well that didn't quite work out I'll have to check Flickr and see about how to show the pic on the forum.

And thanks Dean I'll try to figure this out I have a few SAAF projects to post and repost

Yup, instituted after Photobucket went rogue.

Well that's great about the pics I will have to upload some of the models that disappeared after the photo bucket debacle.

The Pucara yes I just heard about that !::I do have a resin one and regularly travel to China where I could get Kinetic at a good price but I will wait for reviews.

And It's great to see a manufacturer commit to such An esoteric subjet.

Thanks Dean, with all the forums and Facebook pages these days it's hard to stay active on all of them! But I will push through with the Buccaneer and will soon post pics if the SAAF C-130B in early scheme which is coming along.

I have a question about SAAF Buccaneer schemes - I once saw a photo of an aircraft in late scheme, no castles, and had a tiny national flag (orange/white/blue) on the fin. I'd like to finish this model in that scheme but can't find that photo to confirm it - can anyone help me out?
Thanks!

I have no digital copies of the scheme, but it seems a late 70's thing. There is a tiny Oranje-blanje-Blou on the tail and a small castle in front of the intakes. Dare I say the castle is about the size as what would have been on the Mirages? No other castles were on the wings. The scheme is the late scheme as you described.

I have a photo of 423(1977) and one of 416 (1979) in this scheme.
