Yep - know all that but it still would have looked better in metallic instead of yellow!

I wonder if any member of this forum has ever seen a real SAAF Buccaneer with that colour on its canopy!

Yes, I know the colour is off, I used what I had to hand, as explained previously. It's good enough for me as a sport model, as explained previously.

The previously explained bits for those nitpickers who apparently can't read:
Quote:
The canopy is incorrect. The colours on the entire model are too... it looks the part and I'm happy with it... There was no definitive reference for the canopy framing, so I just sucked it and did it kinda correct... using the paints I had to hand...

If I was building a model to compete with, then I'd go through the trouble and extra expense to get things right... It's a slopie, so going to get knocked about


Last post on the topic. And this forum.
