  1. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    Yes interesting, tactical was pretty short lived. Incidentally you may want to darken the blue line against 43 (it was of course an FG.1 equipped unit..) Rich
  2. Airfix 1/48 Meteor

    I hadn't previously been that bothered... but now you mention it I am seriously starting to warm to the idea... PRU blue; those 2 Squadron triangles... just needs the inspiration of a piece of Mr Tooby's fantastic artwork and I'm in.
  3. Anyone seen a release schedule? I notice there is the box art for the Victor K.2 which suggests release is imminent / soonish... Edit - ah I see its down for September. Rich
  4. ... and a Victor K.2 and a Phantom FGR.2 and a Wellington 1c...
  5. Yes, but only if we ignore the 1/72 Vickers Wellington 1c... already announced? Rich
  6. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    30% off + free postage = great deal! Well done
  7. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 in Stock at Hornby

    Me too! although I only ordered the one direct from Airfix (+ 2 more from Big H at 10% off). Rich
  8. 1/48 Bloodhound Missile, 3D printed?

    Just to note, I'm pretty certain this EE Thunderbird is in 1/24 scale - like the rest of the KFS (Kit Form Services) Classic British Military Vehicles series. Rich
  9. mmm... a Harvard, now there's an idea
  10. Ordered in Nov but mine seemed to have been bouncing around the Ukraine postal service - managed to track it. Arrived at Heathrow Thursday am. Now with Royal Mail. Update: just delivered by friendly postman! Rich
  11. As you say Wez, let's hope so... (just placed my order ) Rich
  12. Well that that depends on how you define "available" - and as to price I guess that's down to supply and demand. It may well have been that retail price on release - but are you certain it is now? For instance... and on the same theme who's to say that a forthcoming B.2/B.6 in a big red box won't be announced on 9 Jan...
  13. Any prospect of a B(I).8 in due course with the innovative (with due respect to Ali62) way the canopy / front end is designed? Rich
  14. Dick Ward

    Also saddened to hear of Dick's passing. I never met him but like others have said he was deeply influential in getting me interested in the hobby though his Modedecal range focussed as it was on British military aircraft. I collected and carefully filed them away in display books as a reference; coming away with the latest set was always the highlight of a trip to the original Hannants shop in Colindale. Happy days... where has the time gone? My deepest sympathy to his family and friends at this sad time. Thanks Dick.
  15. Airfix 2018

    Following a string of RAF trainers, I feel demand for a new Airfix series of RAF SH helicopters coming on. Put me down for a Wessex HC.2, followed by a Whirlwind HC.10/HAR.10 and then for something really special... a Belvedere HC.2
