  1. Not quite as simple as it sounds, this is XV361 with the nose opened. 2021-05-07_12-41-46 by Tony Osborne, on Flickr 2021-05-07_12-41-07 by Tony Osborne, on Flickr 2021-05-07_12-42-06 by Tony Osborne, on Flickr 2021-05-07_12-42-52 by Tony Osborne, on Flickr
  2. 361 being delivered to the Ulster Aviation Society then at Langford Lodge following its 92 second flight from Aldergrove.
  3. Using the OPs logic that having someone from Airfix sit in the Lincoln cockpit at Cosford we can now expect a new Puma, Alloutte III, Wessex, Short 330, Seahawk, Scout and Canberra as those are a few of the airframes the Airfix team looked over, sat in etc when scanning and nspecting the Ulster Aviation Society Buccaneer
  4. I would have loved to have seen the Airfix team hanging from the roof of the Cold War building trying to scan the Cosford one!!! Sometimes is costs less to travel to access an aircraft than going to the nearest one, some museums, especially the national ones, charge very high hourly fees to scan an exhibit and also have very tight rules on what can and can't be done, removal of intake covers etc.
  5. Not exactly Airfix but it's linked, Corgi have announced a 1/1250 HMS Queen Elizabeth on their Diecast Diaries blog, a sign for a future Airfix kit?
  6. The GR. 4 is good to see with the retirement scheme, it will end some of the silly prices around now, and I could be tempted with the CH-53 if I can find the Pavelow conversion set.
  7. Just spotted the Prince of Wales sailing south in the North Channel between Northern Ireland and Scotland, she's huge.
