I almost bumped this thread when I saw a video posted to FB yesterday but was hopeful you’d come back with a proper update. Well done!

Fan-Dabi-Dozi !!!

I'd become slightly concerned that the long gap in updates here might mean you had lost motivation, so your latest update is fantastic news. Taking on a project as daunting as this is no mean feat. Persevering to do it three times, indicates that you are either quite bonkers, or incredibly driven

Well done, mate.

Thanks. I'd suggest probably a bit of each.

Good to see you back Gordon - I loved your Hunter and Jaguar builds.

This is so pleasing to see the rebirth of the Buccaneer, clearly my pleasure of such is shared by a great many. Thank you.

I need to work on the landings a bit more.

I was lucky enough to be at Waco this year and see Paul fly the Buccaneer.

Simply magnificent.

Having flown the jet in question for 8 years (including the one nick0231 posted a picture of), I have followed this thread with great interest and a not insignificant amount of nostalgia! You have done a fantastic job Paul; your perseverance and attention to detail is commendable and, like many others I can't wait to see her finished, especially as a 208 Sqn jet . Very glad third time was a treat, just so sorry for results one and two!
