The T-2 Buckeye jet trainer is no doubt among the very legends of the US naval aviation. Both the US Navy and Marines operated this type for a very long time whilst in Greece, the Buckeye saw service even longer. Besides the standard white and red colour scheme, quite a few US airframes bore much more striking colours. And mostly in 1976 when the USA commemorated the bicentennial anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and many of the Buckeyes got various display schemes. The Greek machines, on the other hand, flew camouflaged and only at the very end of their service one of them was painted in a scheme commemorating the faithful, 40-years long service.
The kit set comes on no less than eight grey styrene sprues joined by a sprue with clear parts, resin items and etched details. The decal sheet caters for markings for one white-blue-red US Navy airframe and one from Greece with colourfuly painted empennage.
