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 #2240, I used the TWOBOB T-2 Buckeye Special Edition model kit, 1/48 scale. Painted with acrylic paint, Model Master, and homemade decals.
