  1. sniperUK

    Airfix for 2019

    The Jetstream is ideal for Sci-Fi modellers ,as the Garrett engine prototype in US markings featured in the opening scenes of the initial episode of Gerry Andersons UFO "Identified" just add a Rolls Royce and a couple of police motorcycles

    They didn't and there is really little to no chance they will ,shame really but choppers don't sell in the numbers needed.

    Airfix 2020

    I buy them , lots of them, Airfix told me when I was showing their researcher the Puma and Scout they could scan when they were scanning the Buccaneer.

    Airfix 2020

    Sadly they don't, the Lynx and Merlin kits were a major failure, much as I would like Whirlwind, Puma, Scout and Wasp it is. Just not going to happen with Airfix, I can even get them Puma and Scout to scan.
  5. XV361 at the UAS had been a navy airframe , serving on Eagle and Ark Royal before going to the RAF in 1979, Airfix are well aware of this and the difference between the different fittings, when they did the scan and follow up visit they had copies of the original APs etc with them them to compare the different fits. How do I know this? I organized the visits , provided transport, assisted with moving and removing covers etc I have no doubt that the model will be accurate.
  6. XV361 at the Ulster Aviation Society was LIDAR scanned for this in November 2017 with a follow up visit from the tool designer in Feb last year, he was also working at the Spit MkIVX at the same time . I do not know if initial test castings have arrived yet.
  7. That would be none, ancient Frog, Airfix and Matchbox long out of production.

  9. Now this is the head of the tripod for their LIDAR scanner on 27th November 17 ,I wonder what they scanned IMG_4426 (2) by Tony Osborne, on Flickr
  10. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/80342-aerospatiale-sud-aviation-gazelle/&do=findComment&comment=1004862 It will need different seats for a UK one.
  11. It will be the wrong subject in the wrong scale with the wrong markings with the wrong instructions ……………………………………………………….and it wasn't (insert idea here that will bankrupt the company)
  12. Need a BN-2T release with the PSNI/RUC G-BSWR and 5 Rgt AAC options (though getting details for the sensor/antenna fits could be interesting )
  13. May I suggest this book http://www.colourpoint.co.uk/colourpointbooks/more_details.php?id=1714 Sycamores Over Ulster, by Guy Warner and the Ulster Aviation Society, plenty of reference photos of the 118 Sqn Sycamores around 1960 operating in NI.
