Fairey Barracuda Mk. II ‘Pacific Fleet’ 1/72

The Barracuda model kit is produced using three metal moulding tools and consists of grey injected styrene sprues and one clear plastic sprue. A torpedo replica or a 1600lb bomb can be fitted beneath the fuselage, the model also has wing armament racks. The kit offers four scheme options with various types of national markings. These Barracudas saw service fighting the Japanese aggressors, three of the machines were used aboard aircraft carriers, the fourth one flew from a land base located on Ceylon. The most interesting airframe of all these options might be the machine flown by Sub-Lieutenant Robert McCandless (Barracuda from the Cockpit book author). It underwent some in-field modifications to achieve better performance, the ASV radar equipment was removed and the bulged side windows of the observer were replaced by flat ones. Moreover, the colour scheme of the machine was also non-standard.
