  1. I was lucky enough to go to a lecture by Airfix chief researcher in November. He made it clear that while they have a clear commitment to the pocket money market, their selection of new kits is aimed clearly at the enthusiast with disposable income. They will recoupe their tooling cost on these predicted sales. They know what they are doing!
  2. It's a great choice with all the export machines and I reckon a 9 will follow. Won't stop me building my Academy though as an F5 with all the amassed aftermarket! Airfix are really doing it for me to the point I have started picking all their new heavies in 72nd
  3. Duly noted. I am planning a very early machine. Perhaps a P in the early four colour splinter.
  4. Picked this up today in Antics. A bargain. Complete engines and bomb loads as well as optional armaments
  5. To be honest, there is enough interest in, and schemes for this machine to justify all three. I love the P51 and have all the kits since the Hasagawa. My personal favourite is Airfix but the does not mean good models cannot be produced by the other kits. IFor me it's about the model and not the kit
  6. Frog Sea Vixen

    It's a good kit really, some of the complex curvature is iffy around the engines but as has been daid different, but no worse than some of the more modern kits> Hopefully Airfix will scale down their superb 48th scale version. That is a fantastic kit!
  7. Scan Of Scle Models Vulcan article

    Hi could anyone scan me the old Scale Models Avro Vulcan build article from about 85 by Ray in his classic British Bombers series? I lost mine Cheers in advance Sean
  8. SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    I had a chat with one of the researchers. No new releases this year announced. there will be one in Jan. He assured me not a Vulcan. I heard a rumour of a 1/48th Hunter? Loved the built us sea Fury and concept model of the Blenheiim
  9. SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    A cracking SMW. In by 09:30 stayed to 18:00. Some cracking models on display and many bargains to be had. Scored an original issue unopened Airfix Vulcan for £20. Also Wonderland and Models for sale has some crazy deals on Airfix Revell and Hasagawa kits with! The queue in the morning is what you expect when 3000 members want to take advantage of the early in. The hands at the pumps are limited so fair enough. Also nice ot see so many young people there this year and it seemed crazy busy in general. Icing on the cake was the attention the Avon stand had with our 70 years since the start of the COLD WAR. It seemed to go down very well. All in all a sterling job as usual organisational team. Well done Sean Icing on the cake wa
  10. Vulcan B.2

    Nice job I am just finishing the Valiant and have a Victor to do next. Hoping for a new tool Vulcan to complete all three in AF White
  11. Airfix 2018

    I reckon reserved schedule dur to the Hornby issue. Has to be a 1/72 Vulcan. To complete the trio
  12. I heard now late November. Looks great and an earlier version than the still fab Monogram kits so I can build them all. Would be nice to see a Pedro
  13. Nice Start. I have the kit. In my view it is by far the best 1/48h D out there. All the current ones from the Monogram to Mengare good but this one stands out in terms of detail and quality.
  14. having started my working as life as a mechanical engineer, a real Christmas treat this year kindly sorted by a fellow Britmodeller is a lecture from Airfix chief researcher at my old college in December. Should be very interesting on finding out their approach
  15. I have all of the recent d kits. In my view this is the best of the lot, including the Meng. Both of these have correct wheel wells, however Airfix have a much better cockpit in my view. For me Airfix have got it right in terms of quality vs subject vs price. Roll on the Blenheim and Sea Fury
