Bravo Delta 1/40 Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer S2 XV156 Antics Special ANTBD7


Bravo Delta 1/40 Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer S2 XV156 Antics Special ANTBD7
The finish achieved on this model is just stunning - it oozes quality! Basically an S2 and presented in the livery of of one the aircrafted that bombed the tanker Torrey Canyon when it ran aground on the Seven Sisters reef off the Isles of Sicily. To protect the environment, it was decided to attempt to burn off the ships's cargo using air attack as the 'match'.

It's a superb model, measuring 15 - 16" (approx 39cm) in length, has the larger engine nacelles of the S2 but does include the small wing vents present on the S1.


The S2 XV156 was later attached to 809 Squadron on HMS Eagle - 16th April 1973 and subsequently converted to an S2A version for the RAF 1st August 1973.

The very large crude carrier Torrey Canyon ran onto the Seven Sisters reef off Lands End on the 18th March 1967. In order to burn off the oil and minimise environmental damage, Hunters, Buccaneers and Sea Vixens launched a series of attacks that eventually saw the vessel destroyed and made the evening news very entertaining at the time.
