    CH-46 / KV-107 STGB 2nd March to 2nd June

    Ah Of course I thought it was too easy. Sorry for being a muppet.

    As luck would have it I stumbled into THIS yesterday which may be a solution. Price isn't silly either. I was looking for Swedish AF Decals in 1/48 and still am if anybody has any ideas....

    Hi-Decal 2019 - news and upcoming projects

    Hi Dave Once again you're Welcome. I'd almost forgotten about that issue but yes @Diego ordering Stoppel can be a challenge for many people.

    Hi-Decal 2019 - news and upcoming projects

    For that sentence alone you deserve every success. Stoppel decals are very nice but having just one or two on a sheet would be no issue with most people I think. Miliverse Decals have Singapore Hunters planned which I think the Airfix kit may accelerate.

    Sounds like there's plenty of assistance available Diego. Maybe need to do a Part 2 sheet??

    Classic Airfix Concorde for 2019

    I've gone for four so I think you're being reasonable and certainly not greedy. Possibly the best spin on an answer I've ever seen Allan is quite correct, the kit was released way before the first prototype was finished and the tooling adds another chunk. The aircraft was at the absolute edge of what could be done and was constantly being changed, It makes superb nostalgia build and What-If? material and the BOAC scheme is beautiful. If you want to build 001 or 002 then I suggest looking on the kit as a source of parts for a major scratch-build, first you'll have to pick the day you want to capture. The preserved examples are in pretty good shape and 101 at Duxford had a very knowledgeable guide and most of the test equipment still fitted when I saw her last.

    Guys you wont believe the things she did

    As an officially mad person with medications to hand I really think you should seek help The work so far is stunning and I can understand now why you're doing it. I can't offer any speed tips as you're already at Warp 5 compared to me....

    Classic Airfix Concorde for 2019

    As medical items seem to be getting rather short supply at the moment I haven't got any spare or I'd send some I think single point with a BIG hose would be best. I need to find a 1/144 scale TSR.2 now ready for the release.

    Thank You Good general. Your header had me snorting coffee. Superb! I'm thinking of.... err.....more than one myself. I have a mad idea of a tanker version with a TSR.2 snuggling up for a drink. Need to talk to the medic about more medications.

    Classic Airfix Concorde for 2019

    It's featured in the 'Man in a High Castle' Series on Amazon Prime. There are a couple of screen shots earlier. The step in the engine nacelles rang a bell so I went searching and found Melchie's build The Entex 1/600 box art shows their kit is even more pronounced I think it would work in Quantas service. Lots of water to cross to get anywhere

    Airfix for 2019

    First thing. I am mostly a 1/48th builder (well part-builder). That said I think this is a pretty decent effort for a company that is still in difficulties. After giving my friend a good listening to I'm really coming round to a Tiger Moth even. I think the Classic releases are well thought out as many were fetching silly money from dealers and eBay sellers. Now many more people will be able to get one, with (hopefully) usable decals, and have cash to buy more. Profits to Airfix to keep things going. What would be a sows ear to one person can be a silk purse to another. I have ideas for that 1/144 Concorde prototype.
  12. If you hadn't spent the money you wouldn't have anything for the Frog Squad GB
  13. I've been quite glad they've done this TBH. Having young nephews being able to model the actual plane they've just seen and photographed of course saves a lot of explaining. It's also a good way of getting funds for the warbird owners who will be able to sell 'personalised' kits at shows. I know a lot of people who are going to be very happy with this. Not my thing but I'm very tempted.

    Tamiya 1/48 MM 100th kit ideas?

    I was thinking that their 35th offerings have been overtaken by others and would be unlikely to be the 100th kit subject. However I'm thinking maybe a big kit could be it, better profit margin and could open the door to more as they did in 35th. @dnl42 maybe a Dragon Wagon, or a Diamond T, or the German half-track and trailer. 25pdr, limber and tractor???
