Hobby Boss has released a 1/48 scale Brazilian EMB312 Tucano
Amongst the plastic there is a fret of photo etched parts. There are four marking options including an RAF aircraft. I would check your references if you want to keep things accurate.

81763 - Brazilian EMB312 Tucano – 1/48

They put RAF decals in the box, but forgot the RAF nose. The Aftermarket companies are going to have a field day I suppose it's also too much to hope for an Esquadrilha da Fumaça boxing, so there's another aftermarket opportunity.

Not only the nose is missing but the Shorts Tucano had different wingtips, different canopy and a different cockpit layout, along with Martin-Baker MB 8LC ejection seats. So your best off not using the British roundels. Other then that the earlier 314 release was a nice kit, so this should build up the same. Andy

On the RAF bird. I believe the prototype (demo bird) was a straight Tucano, then the additions were Added for the after sale production prototype. The RAF engine was because at that time the PT6 did not have the horsepower or throttle response. (this could be slightly incorrect on the engine, but I am culling all this from memory)(at lunch in work) "Cheating???" I think not, there was actually a prototype like this as I remember.
