  1. I fully support this - it fits with the other trainers released by Airfix and it has been in service with many other countries as well besides the UK. They can probably release a new variant every year, but they need to be clever when it comes to getting the variants right.
  2. So what versions of the Lysander will they release? I can think of British army-coop of 1940 with light bombs and messages bags for use over France. Finland army-coop of WW2. Target tug over Britain and Canada British air-sea rescue Special duties flight - the most interesting version in my opinion Other users: Irish Air Corps (six Mk II) Turkish Air Force (36 Mk II) Portuguese Air Force (eight Mk IIIA) USAAF (25), Indian Air Force (22), Egyptian Air Force(20)
  3. No SAS decals? https://www.youtube.com/embed/DAZ-IDhhe8s
  4. With Moson Model Show taking place on 27-28th April could it be an opportunity to get a few Sunderlands fresh from the mould. The price of the kit is one thing, and then you have the resin and p/e extras that double the total...

    Airfix 2020

    All in 1/72 unless otherwise noted Cold War resupply set with tanker, ammo and fire truck as well as RAF regiment armoured car and troops manning a Rapier battery to protect a forward based Harrier Desert Storm resupply set with ground crews in MOPP suits loading up a Buccaneer with LGBs and Wimik LandRovers surrounding the area. C-130J including stretched version T-6 Texan / Harvard, later to be done in 1/48 as well Junkers Ju 88A - both the 1:1 ones in Norway are getting close to finished and ready to be LIDARed F-35A/B - if accessible P-8A Poseidon - just have to wait until the RAF get them delivered Junkers Ju 52/3m - we have an original one they can measure up in Norway. Heinkel He 115 - we have one they can measure up in Norway. Short Sunderland - rebox of Special Hobby whenever they have it ready Hawker Hurricane Mk.I metal wing - rebox of Arma AW101 - rescue and assault versions Sikorsky S-92 HM Coast Guard SAR helicopter AW 139 HM Coast Guard SAR helicopter Dogfight doubles: Harrier vs Argentina Skyhawk MiG-17 vs USN Skyhawk Buccaneer vs Torrey Canyon Fairmile D vs E-boat Fairmile D MTB followed by MGB Other scales: Reboxings of some of Zvezdas 1/144 airliners in BA and other British markings QE & PoW carriers in 1/350
  6. They are going for moulds that can be changed to give multiple versions; both the Buccaneer and the MiG-17 are likely be released in several iterations over the years to come. Two new cold war kits, but only variations of earlier WW2 releases this time.
  7. Happy to see a new Pe-2 to modern standards in 1/72, especially if Begemot also scales down their decal sheet. Maybe Zvezda will come around to do a decent MiG-3 as well one day. And I am also happy to see more airliners from Zvezda, both Western and Russian
  8. For a sort of walk-around of the still not finished second An 225: https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/antonov-an-225-kiev-ukraine/index.html
  9. Could it be that they go for a Soviet or French aircraft flown by Polish pilots. French Caudron C.714, Morane-Saulnier M.S.406 & Koolhoven F.K.58 were flown during the battle of France. Soviet Yakovlev Yak-1, Yak-7, Yak-9, Petlyakov Pe-2 & Ilyushin Il-2 were used by Polish units under Soviet control and formed the nucleus of the newPolish AF. It would be nice to have a modern 1:72 kit of the Pe-2 or either Yakovlev. There is a Pe-2 and two Yak-9Ps in Polish museums available for measuring up. British/US HP Halifax and Lancaster are a bit large for a small company Mosquito FB IV and NF XIII more manageable Hurricane IIC could probably use some of the lessons learned from the first Hurricane kit Mustang Mk.III and IV were flown by Polish squadrons later in the war.
  10. Cheaper than the resin kit from Kora Koras resin kit
  11. Hei, They are releasing AFVs/tanks in 1/72 & 1/35, airliners and transports in 1/144, military aircraft in 1/144, 1/72 & 1/48 and an Imperial Star Destroyer lately. So yes, they are releasing a mix of completely new moulds and updated/old moulds. http://zvezda.org.ru/en/ According to the their web site is the T-35 in 1/72 with 237 parts recommended for 7 years and older - so Russian modellers are quite good from an early age!

    The team from Airfix that visited Flysamlingen in 2014 to document the He 111, returned earlier this year to measure up another aircraft. With some 40 airframes in the collection, which one(s) are on Airfix hit-list? Overview over the aircraft
  13. Hei, Killingholme asks: Anywhere in EU you can purchase these kits? I have bought Jet & Prop kits as well as other hard to get kits made in Russia and Ukraine from ModelsUa in Ukraine. No problems with communicating in English and getting the kits shipped to me in Norway. https://modelsua.com/Prop-and-Jet.html MVH Knut Erik
  14. Looks like an upgrade from the Airmodel vacuform and the injection moulded Mach2 kits of this aircraft. Wekusta 5/6 operated one of these in Norway (Ar 232A-08/10: Code TC+EG) http://www.forums.luftwaffedata.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=681&view=previous Image on Pinterest

    The C-130 Hercules deserve an updated kit. Airfix can make several versions by planning ahead - H, J and stretched J for RAF and other European nations and US gunship. 1/72 is the right scale for it, too large in in 1/48.
