Hi all here is my newly finished Airfix 1/72 Shorts Tucano T.1 at long last finished after about 3years on and off due to not being happy with the 1st colour scheme and having problems with this scheme. ive opened up the storage compartment and canopy and the engine intake and added a grill also drilled out the exhausts plus a few other little odds and ends. thanks for looking all comments welcome.

I like that a lot, one of Airfix’s better, older kits!

Nice looking airplane, looks great in these colors, especially popping out from its dark base like it does. Beautiful presentation overall, just pleasant on the eyes. I even like how you arranged the plaques etc., good balance and nothing distracts from anything else, it all adds.

Lovely job mate.

72 Squadron codes were RN but the airforce chiefs were paranoid as they didn’t want the Royal Navy being represented by association so they ordered the change to RA. The squadron were very grumpy!
