  11. I think my contenders would be esoteric 1/72 overstrand/sidestrand leading edge 1/72 challenger biz jet
  12. Yes,closely checked out and it certainly looks an impressive piece of casting.I normally carry Magna stock at most of the shows during the course of the year, and finished up getting four from Robin on Sunday pm. I'm not sure how many Robin had left as he only started the show with just over thirty and it sold quite well all weekend. Apparently Magna(spain) is going to have to cast a new master before furher delivery's follow, so possibly in the new year. check ads in SAM/SAMI for contact details. HTH cheers chris
  13. david, with reference to the aug 82 sam article on the rhodesian/zimbabwe af,the profiles only make reference to the u/wing serials on a/c with raf roundels with 3 assegai's. however reading article it seems probable that serials were still carried in one assegai period, but states that from1976(half way through lion roundel period)all markings were removed.and only rear fuselage serial applied when yellow bird was adopted. hth chris

    derek i think that the only other 1/72 hornets/sea hornets around are the resin ones in the Magna range,although Martin was talking of dropping them when the SH ones came out HTH cheers chris
