How long will it be before an Airfix 2018 topic arrives? summer has almost gone and not a sniff of one so far.

Wouldn't this new thread be as good a place as any?

 

I'll start - 1/48 Hawker Hart family

..... I'd say a 1/72 Single Seat Venom, however apparently there's next to NO interest in one of these !!

 

Cheers... Dave

1/48 Spitfire Mk. XIV family... leading to a Mk. XVIII.

 

I think this has been mentioned every year since Airfix started popping-out new Spits!  C'mon... 2018 is the year!

I still don't understand why Airfix havent done a twin tub Spit. With all the warbird operators out there giving AEF at £2500 a pop - they surely would do well as a souvenir? (Yup I know AZ did one but even so...)

 

Surely next candidate up must be a 1/48 Lanc as the Tamiya one is the same age as me.....then a 1/72 Battle is a dead cert at some stage but would certainly settle for a 1/48 Hawker bipe family...droooool..... :)

 

I think the 1/24 Blackburn Blackburn has to wait til 2019 now

I'm still hoping for the Hawker Hart family in 1/72. With a Hind and a Demon at the Shuttleworth Collection, there's a good museum "tie-in", not to mention a whole raft of colourful marking options.

As another rural Bedfordshire "inhabitee" yes there is that wonderful local connection, but also across the border in Cambs there's the 2 Nimrods and Fury at IWM Duxford too!

1:48 Lysander with all the slats and flaps positionable (A Lysander on the ground with everything in and up just looks plain wrong)

1:24 Gladiator (with RAF wires moulded in Nylon so they can be tensioned with a soldering iron) 

As its the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1

1:72 Sopwith Camel

1:72 Fokker D VII

1:72 Vickers Vimy (with a re-issue in 2019 for the Alcock and Brown centenary)

More airfield vehicles in 1:48 (Queen Mary please)

I'd add Fury/Nimrod and the Bristol Bulldog to that . . .

Hampden, a logical step after the Blenheim, Whitley and Wellington.  Perhaps a Battle, too.   2019 would be these, upscaled to 1/48  :)

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.

Still reckon the most logical would be a Hunter in 1:48. With a bit of careful engineering of the sprues, pretty well every variant would be possible - endless hours of fun! But it's all up to Mr Airfix - and, like The Shadow, only Mr Airfix knows!

Bristol bulldog, hawker hart/hind/fury/demon. Siskin, would be nice, not bothered what scale. 

  2 seat meteors. Scout/wasp helicopters.

72nd Hunter with a 48th one at some point would be very welcome I'm sure.  48th Tiger Moth New Chipmunks  etc  Loads of UK subjects being mentioned but to please North American modellers, F-104 Starfighters would be good with manyschems (RCAF ones for me...)

Obvious choices (though maybe just for me...) would be:

 

1:48 Tiger Moth

1:48 Spitfire Mk XIV

1:48 Spey Phantom

1:48 Sea King

 

I would love to see:

 

1:48 D.H. 88 Comet

1:48 interwar stuff - Fury, Hart, Vimy (including Alcock & Brown and other long distance Vimys),...

1:48 Scimitar

1:48 Vamire/Venom family

1:48 Hunter family

1:48 Blenheim

1:48 Hampden

 

aaaaand 1:48 Vulcan :-D C'mon Airfix - go for it!

 

1:24 Sea Fury

 

1:72 Vulcan - guess I would buy a second one then...

1:72 DH Comet airliner - any

 

1:144 new tool Space Shuttle - too bad you do not see it that often at air shows ;-)

1/72 Eurofighter Typhoon (just chuck the moulds for the existing one) with all the pylons and a nice coice of weapons. I know others make them but they don't make money for Airfix.

 

And do hurry up and release the new Phantom - my Fujimi stock is running low.

Going by the past years it will be more WWll stuff. It would be nice if the jet was the power of choice.

Will Airfix survive 2018 ?   Hornby (the parent company) is still going through financial and management problems, and now that a new entity/boss is in control we have to await what direction they will take the group in.

 

As for which Kit I would like, well that would be a 1/350th  HMS Queen Elizabeth, but that won't happen (ships are a "no-no").

I have always tipped the Wellington as being the obvious kit to replace, now we have one already announced it is a little difficult to guess what's next. 

My best guess is, Hawker Hunter, Sopwith Camel, Red Baron Fokker Triplane and Ju88.

 

Second best guess, P-47 and Corsair, but a glut of kits by other manufacturers may hold these off. Mosquito, but the old Mosquito kit may be felt by Airfix to be still good enough.

 

As a wildcard I would suggest a Bristol Beaufort.

 

Most surely we will see more reboxes and kits of current subjects such as the Meteor being released in different scales.
