Reviewed by Brett Green




Heritage Aviation has released a simple replacement for the jet intakes on Airfix's 1/48 scale Buccaneer kit. 

Four parts are supplied in butterscotch coloured resin. These are attached to large castng blocks, so care will be required when removing the parts.

The shape of the new intakes look good. They also include subtle vent detail. Being one piece each, they are totally seamless. The inclusion of detailed engine fan faces is a nice touch.

General consensus is that the Airfix Buccaneer kit is a bear to assemble, but the results are often impressive. Heritage Aviation's replacement intakes will address a prominent aspect of this difficult kit.


Thanks to Linden Hill Imports for the review sample
