  1. General assembly done on my first. Beautiful fit, finish, and detail. Sorry, I still don’t Know how to post photos but I can tell you that the only filler I needed was a little bit of Mr Surfacer 500 in a few joints wiped off with Mr Thinner. Parts breakdown and engineering are very good. The three part fuselage breakdown gave me pause upon opening the box but it went together well. I, too, have been waiting the better part of a lifetime for this. Opened the post and stated modelling immediately. Not in any way disappointed. Next is an S.1 as soon as the one from Hannants arrives. Ordered the first direct from Hornby and paid post equal to the value of the kit (i’m In the USA). Don’t care, this time it was worth every penny.
  2. Great, but where is the iong promised Fairey Delta 2.
  3. I have seen test shots of this, terrific quality and detail. Not far short of Flyhawk.no known Us distributor yet. Mines on preorder at HLJ.
  4. I did misunderstand. Saw B-1 and thought about the Bone. Pretty chauvinistic! I too would really like to see a Vulcan B.1.
  5. New kit by Academy——really nice.
  6. Based on the sprue shots, I’m sure they are not MACH 2. Available now from the LF website. Mine are ordered. Don’t look easy but they do look like a good result is possible with effort. That’s more than you can say about the MACH 2 or long ago MPM kits. The Italian markings confirm my belief that Italeri should have given us this one a long time ago.
  7. The PJ F-84F is a beautiful and well detailed kit but sadly represent an example that has been on a diet. Visibly narrow, left to right. Perfect in every other way but just doesn’t look right. The F-84 was a beefy aircraft, descendant of the Thunderbolt after all.
  8. If the Spitfire XIV is “out”, why is it not available anywhere but from Airfix directly? They seem to be undercutting their retailers by selling directly before servicing their merchants. Wise policy? I, for one, don’t order from them since I purchased on old mold Buccaneer and paid more for the postage (to USA) than the kit.
  9. Viper exhaust clearly visible in photo 6 of the Hannants presentation linked to the post. Whoopie !!!!!
  10. Built the Mk 1 a few years ago. A very nice kit that assembled very well. Not afflicted by the gross shape errors which are so characteristic of Dragon. Aftermarket nose is a real necessity (the Dragon shape changer got loose for a moment there). I think the Aires one better captures the subtle curves of the Sea Vixen nose. The other necessity is a full resin cockpit, such as Pavla’s. Aside from having two seats, the Dragon cockpit bears no resemblance to that of a Sea Vixen. Just new seats won’t save it. With those two additions a really nice model is possible from this well fitting kit. Some day i’ll Figure out how to post pictures on here but that’s my word picture for what it is worth.
  11. Beautiful and highly skilled paint job. Where did get a 1/48 Scale Japanese boffin with such spray painting skills. Just magnificent.
  12. Terrific job on an old kit. Who needs Hasegawa when you have that much skill.
