  1. And like the 72nd RN kit still has the chaff mounting plates beneath the engines that were added later when in RAF service, So B- for research, as this was pointed out on their 72nd 2SC kit
  2. Nice to see they will scale down the Angled Deck Essex CVS-12 to 1/700, although its noticeable that the aircraft for this carrier (Crusader, Skyhawk, Tracker/Tracer) are not listed in the 700 aircraft as dedicated sets !. Sadly the 700 Belfast's appear to be no further along than the 72ns Mig-19
  3. Should be a nice kit going off the the 1/700 ships I have from them, Only thing missing i can see would be a folded wing option
  4. Aircraft Yes, but they have done some very nice armour kits in 1/72
  5. Partially because Trumpeter have announced various other ship kits over the years that have so far failed to appear and some would like to see those appear before they push these Cancelled Projects to the front of the queue. They now do 3 German Aircraft Carriers from WW2 none of which were ever completed, yet have only done 1 Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier of the 12 carriers that took an active part in WW2.
  6. A word of caution A&A had the the Vak 191 on the box of their VJ101 as kit 7204 four years ago and still no sign of that !! https://www.scalemates.com/kits/aanda-models-7204-vfw-vak-191--1121913
  7. A new 1/72nd S-38 Schnellboote coming from the far east from the looks of it https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/givillyfown2t9jqj1jg.html?t=1629391567
  8. Imperial Hobby Productions are working on the 1/700 CVA-01 RN aircraft carrier that was intended to replace Eagle & Ark Royal, this kit will come with Phantoms and Buccaneers, however its unlikely to appear before the end of the year and may be 2022 release. The Trumpeter Nimitz and Eisenhower both have late 70s boxings with F=-4 Phantoms onboard, Trumpeter have recently released the Constellation, Kitty Hawk and JFK in both whilst entering service with Phantoms, these kits all depict the later era of the ships with Super Hornets or Tomcats. Dragon were n the verge of releasing a 1/700 USS Enterprise in her 60's fit with Phantoms and other period aircraft, but this kit never appeared and appears to have been adapted to create a diecast ready made toy instead. The Atlantic Models 1/700 Resin & Etch kit of HMS Ark Royal is the only kit of the 70s Ark Royal with Phantoms but if you register interest with Mike at Starling Models you should get notified if the kit gets restocked (The Fujimi 1/700 Injection moulded kits of Eagle and Ark Royal are old kits of both ships in their 50's configuration before both Carriers were rebuilt in the 60s and would take a lot of work to convert to a Phantom capable carrier, Other kits of the Ark Royal are either the WW2 carrier or the 80s Invincible class kits for Swordfish and Sea Harrier respectively.
  9. Ant, These are the STAAG twin 40mm in 1/325th scale https://www.shapeways.com/product/M6G44Y9EC/1-325-rn-twin-40mm-bofors-aa-guns-set-x6?optionId=185171311&li=marketplace Cheers Geoff
  10. https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/revell-172-space-shuttle-discovery/ Wonderland are saying 16th April
  11. 1-350-royal-navy-twin-20mm-oerlikon-mkv-guns Micro Master already do the guns so you could add them on to the order for the upgrade set
  12. The Revell kit is actually due for reissue next month :- https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/RV5673?result-token=B85uS
  13. 2020/2021 Catalogue - Ships listing That the 2020/2021 catalogue about 9 months after they were posted on here. As for 2021/2022 I have seen no sign, last year the Catalogue was sneak released on the 19th December and officially posted up on the 4th of Feb, which seemed to tie in with the Nuremberg Toy Fair, as the Trade shows are now happening, i'm not sure where we will get the annual release schedule as also looking to see what the likes of Fujimi and Aoshima have planed in the way of ship kits.
  14. Yes Colin passed over the EAP to Dave at Combat Kits for re-issuing
  15. You can get the MK8 MK1 "Kryten" turret in the Dragon HMS York as they have the original gun and the optional later refit version
