This new publication from Fox Two is in A4 size landscape format and contains 65 pages packed with detail.  The quality of paper, photographs and printing is excellent.  The publication is a softcover publication and has gloss paper pages throughout. 

This is an illustrated history of the Blackburn (Hawker Siddeley) Buccaneer S.2B in Royal Air Force Service.  The text is in English with German translation included. 

Many in-service photographs including many anniversary schemes are offered.  Gulf War nose art aircraft are also captured but most of these are taken on return to the UK. 

Most importantly for modelers is the many in-detail photographs which include the radar, cockpits, wheel wells, bomb bay, engines and engine bays.  The Martin Baker Mk.6MSB1&2 Ejection Seats are well photographed to present all the detail and colours of the seat. 

The remaining photographs are dedicated to external intricacies of the Buccaneer.  The final pages are dedicated to the weapons that the Buccaneer carried including thenMk20B underwing buddy refueling pod.

The inside of the front cover is dedicated to the Buccaneer Aviation Group.  This is a group of volunteers who are dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of two ex-Royal Air Force Buccaneers XX894 and XW544.  They list a website, Facebook and twitter accounts.

Highly recommended
