The RSAF Mk 84 and later purchased Mk 81/82 BAC Strikemaster primarily used for advanced phase of flying training, providing pilot trainees with air combat and weapons delivery. The Strikemasters were decommissioned in 1986 and replaced by SIAI-Marchetti S211.

Both models were build OOB and I gave each model a different paint scheme using Gunze paints. For the camouflage version, I replaced Tan with Earth to depict an older colour scheme. The fuselage colour band and tip tanks were done by masking. 

Aircraft decals for the Red/ White colour scheme were from my spare decal box.
