Rockwell T-2D Buckeye Red & White Venezuela Air Force
In 1972 the
Venezuela Air Force (FAV) received 12, of the 24 purchased T-2D Buckeye, an
advanced training jet aircraft from North American Rockwell. Later in 1977 the
second dozen were received, replacing the English training aircraft Jet Provost
T.Mk.52. In 1987 the Buckeyes were replaced by Brazilian Embraer EMB-312, T-27
Tucano turboprop aircraft. Finally they were decommissioned in 1999.
To build the FAV Buckeye Red & White, serial # 4821, I used the kit T-2 Red & White from Special Hobby, 1/48 scale. I painted with acrylic paint, Model Master, and used homemade decals.
Enjoy the photos.
