If you don't mind a Spanish language forum there is 123 pages of stuff here for a bit of reference

Hi Graeme,

That's a great thread you have linked too, thanks very much for sharing! Lots of great pictures, and very personal too. Shows both sides and some great 'before and after' pictures. I'm on page 17 and yes the translation is hard, but as they say, a picture tells a thousand words.

I think i am going to enjoy this topic. It's something that i don't know a lot about, i was just a little fella when this war was raging. Going through the thread Graeme linked to has made me wanting to know and learn more.

Glad you made this an ongoing build David!

I have always found the Pucara to be an interesting acft and would like one in 1/48 (from a mainstream company not resin).
