I've been told that Aviation Workshop did a recce pack in 1/48.

EDIT: and also Heritage Aviation did a 1/48 conversion.  However I've just discovered that like Aviation Workshop, Heritage Aviation is no more ---- (but it has been bought up by someone).


Here ya go kitnut:- http://www.kitsforcash.com/simian-stuff-kits-101-c.asp
Sadly, little from the old Heritage Aviation.
Have a look in the 'Simian Stuff' section.

Thanks Paul, and yeah, got that link already. That's where I read about Heritage stuff has gone (in the news section). Kits for Cash was called Heritage Aviation before the owner changed it's name and now it seems he's sold it to some mysterious buyer --- he also mentions that a lot of the Heritage stuff got destroyed, I'm thinking in his recent move but he doesn't say very much about what happened.

Fixed replacement for the doors I believe
It rotates, look at the diagram of the overall installation above where it says "CAMERA PACK SHOWN MOUNTED ON THE BOMB DOOR AND ROTATED TO THE OPERATIONAL POSITION".  So it would be rotated only for the photo run.  I wonder if those pods would fit the bulged door of the RAF versions?  It would be interesting to do a dedicated Buccaneer SR.2 variant, perhaps with options for ELINT gear, too.

If you scroll down through the link I attached in post #21 Evan, there's a bunch of pics of RAF recce birds.  The pics though would seem to suggest the pack is exposed all the time.

It seems to have been carried in the exposed position a lot of the time, but the July 27, 2012 entry from "Sketchy74" on that thread clearly says that it rotates.  As does the diagram I referenced earlier which is from a Hawker-Siddeley S.2 brochure (per post by "Airtrooper" in that thread on September 28, 2013).

Perfect candidate for rescaling - maybe add a cockpit?

I saw the sprue shots of the SPAAG on line.. eehh.. its OKaaay. Looks like they have moulded a *lot* of detail on to the upper hull. It'll be a quick build in that regard.
