Tucano T-27, Venezuela Air Force
In 1986 the Venezuela Air Force (FAV) received the first four Embraer EMB-312 Tucano T-27 bought from Brasil. A year later begin the deliveries of the remaining airplanes: 20 T-27 for training aircraft were assigned to the training Squadron No.142/Group 14.Today some T-27 aircrafts still active in operation.

To build the EMB T-27 Tucano (silver color, serial 1792) I used the Aconcagua 1/48 model, made in Argentina, is a resin kit with photo-edge and white metal parts. The resin is very hard, brittle and difficult to handle. 

Painted with Model Master acrylic paint. Decals were home made.

Thank you
