  1. 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
  2. Hi Mike


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



  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    Time will tell. I disagree on thousands of British Aircraft that have not been kitted. There are few left that have not been done in 1/48 that are not too big when you include limited run.
  9. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    I have no doubt that we will get one eventually simply because the number of potential subjects is limited. Look at Trumpeter making every type of Russian vehicle that ever moved - tell me that a Scimitar would sell worse than every one? Will
  10. Why no injected 1:48 Scimitar ?

    Strange though that this thread keeps coming back. When I win the Lottery you shall have your Scimitar!
  11. That was a Mk V There is a Mk II in the main hall that is firmly on its U/C
  12. Sea Vixen FAW.2

    Bring it on Airfix! The Scimitar is one exception to the looks right/flies right adage. I think around half were lost in accidents and it was a maintenance nightmare. That said in a war it may have faired better and it suffered the fate of so many British post war aircraft in being over specified with insufficient funds for development. That canopy is well done.
  13. Sea Vixen FAW.2

    That is a really nice Vixen. How did you do the canopy so well? My love affair with the Scimitar started with the Airfix Victorious as well. Will
  14. Supermarine Scimitar

    I hassle Airfix every year at Telford for a Scimitar - you are definitely not the only one.
