    Those would certainly help.

    Get the pitchforks and the burning torches! He's got the wrong mark! Wish that it were real (but would prefer a T7 or an F1/4 as they're more colourful).

    Not a huge amount more really, providing a set of dual controls and a 2nd pilot's seat.

    Andre, I don't know about that I'll check later), but one thing I do know, we Brit's don't use st, nd, rd or th in our squadron designations, to us it's just 151 Squadron.

    Which plans are these? Invariably, company GA (General Arrangement) plans are not accurate scale plans and thus not a basis for making a scale model from. Likewise, production drawings are what you make the individual components to and how you fit them together. The latter might be great for understanding some of the subtleties and fine details but again are not a suitable basis for a scale model. There's also the matter of whether the drawings have been kept up to date and incorporate all of the drawing changes. Airfix would be better served to measure the real thing, LIDAR where possible and then use the drawings for the subtleties.
  6. Thanks gents but I have it already, it's just that it's one sheet covering three units, which is not a lot when you consider how many French units used the type.
  7. Where me and the self propelled temporary house on wheels are west of Southampton, a Gazelle in RAF trainer colours, any sort of Gazelle is a rarity these days, let alone one in a military colour scheme. It was heading north.
  8. What music are you playing? Pt III

    Just goes to show how different we all are, I love the unpredictability of shuffle mode.

    Special Hobby have announced a twin stage Mossie, it would be interesting to see what approach they take with the fuselage? The trouble is with SH is the very long flash to bang time between announcement and kit reaching the shop's

    Steve, there are always exceptions to the rule, perhaps I should change my post to read "seem to..."? Agree about the Mosquito needing replacing, it has served Airfix and the modelling community well but it's had its day. I would love to see a twin stage Mossie, a night fighter for me but I know others (particularly the Wooksta!), who are desperate for a bomber. Your suggestion to how the mould should be broken down makes good engineering sense to me, whether that approach is economically viable is another question.

    Great progress so far Andrew, looking forward to getting my sticky mitts on one of these, everything I've seen from your posts is very encouraging. I had some Aztec decals arrive yesterday with options for C10's and C12's, I know about C2's and C7's but nothing about these later versions, superficially they look the same to me so I'm wondering what I need to do to make a C10/12?
  12. The Max Decals sheet offers some really unusual schemes and in time I can see SH releasing enough boxings that will cover them all. For me, I want to see some more French schemes than just the Patrouille de France, The only sheet that ever did anything like that was the old but lovely Modeldecal 37. I wish Model Art or Berna would pull their fingers out and do some as this subject is right up their street!

    Sooner or later we all end up crossing to our respective dark sides, I sign off our team's work so I know an awful lot more about metal spec's, heat treatment, rivet types and load paths than I should. And I like hitting things with a hammer (who doesn't)? I think these are obvious choices for Airfix and I'd be very surprised if we don't see them. What pleases me with the current Airfix is when they bring a mould back into circulation, they don't just trot it out with the same decals as previously (the current release of the 1/72nd Spitfire 19 being a good example).

    Steve, I'm Avionics/Electrical, I just thought I was quoting the standard heavy toolkit

    I don't know, I think Impact Driver is a nice name Lump Hammer less so... ...but nobody likes being called a Spanner, so... ... sorry Steve.
