  1. Airfix 2018

    No just that they could make money doing this. Why should they not branch out. It would be epic!
  2. Airfix 2018

    It may be too soon after the 1/48th one for the Sea Fury but they make money on the big kits. Left field would be a 1/32 A4 pacific
  3. Airfix 2018

    Fresh from guessing the Blenheim correctly my predictions are 1/24th Sea Fury 1/48th Vampire
  4. New 1/48th Scale Blenheim Announced by Airfix!!

    That is the 20 year old one
  5. New 1/48th Scale Blenheim Announced by Airfix!!

    No Brained - predicted this one last year My other prediction was a 1/24 Sea Fury
  6. Suggestions for a Magnifying light

    Thank you for that.
  7. Suggestions for a Magnifying light

    Hi I am looking to upgrade to a better magnifying light for my modelling bench. I have seen a few at shows such as Telford but did not buy at the time and rather regret it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a bright light with a reasonable magnifier? Will
  8. Airfix 2018

    I would go for a Blenheim in 1/48. Lots of schemes and variants possible with minimal mould changes. Research already completed. A 1/24th Sea Fury would also be nice. Will
  9. Hi Mike


    Could I have the PR1G conversion with a Tamiya Mk 1?



  10. Tanmodel announce a 1/48th Buccaneer.

    Can I just say how much I am looking forward to this release. The Buccaneer is such a great machine. Will
  11. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    I think that is standard practice for them. Make a batch, sell them and then wait until demand returns. They have done the same with the Lightning several times and the big Mosquito as well.
  12. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    Still not convinced. You could say the same for almost every subject that was not entirely smooth on the vertical or horizontal plane. Certainly the Sea Vixen is more complicated, the Javelin is larger, the Victor considerable more involved as well as larger and the Walrus?. Inserts are a fairly simple solution to the detail issues you mention if the moulding cannot be made to work.
  13. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    Not sure why a Scimitar would be more expensive as it is pretty straightforward airframe to model? I have not come across a charity model company yet though there is time.
  14. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    A IIIF would be nice but even then between Silver Wings, Montex, Aeroclub and Wingnut the list is getting shorter.
