BAC Strikemaster FGA.6  XW376 served with 208 squadron at RAF Khormaksar as part of the RAF's Middle East Command from 1975 in the light attack role. From 1974, all the Hunters in Aden were replaced by the Strikemaster FGA.6 in the COIN role for close air support against the insurgents that kept attacking British interests in the region.

The kit was built OOB with the exception of the SNEB rocket pods which came from a couple of Airfix Hunters. The model was painted using Xtracrylix and Revell Aqua Color paints. The decals are a mix of the Airfix kit decals and Xtradecals for the 1/72 Buccaneer.
