  1. To be honest, I was just being lazy so typed out F3 haha
  2. This is a fairly common topic over on the BPAG facebook group. To clarify; All FG.1's had both the recess and hook and never lost them All FGR.2's had it faired over. Unfortunately I cannot recall the status of the F.3's off the top of my head, but most (all?) of them were Vietnam vets and would have had them originally. Cheers, WV908
  3. 40 grams are required? Ouch. I guess you could separate the nose cone, drill into the weight compartment and add more? I plan on building a K2, which means a chunk of resin right in the tail. That will be fun to balance. Cheers, WV908.
  4. Has anyone else found that their cockpit sprues are so thick with mould release agent that they've had to scrub them? I've never known it be this bad. Weirdly, the 'dodgy' kit out of my three has problems all around. It has warped sprues, a few damaged parts and it looks like one of the sprues has been through a glitter factory. To me it looks as if this first batch was rushed through two different factories as the differences between the kits are quite major. Cheers, WV908
  5. I am very tempted since it is a unique scheme, but I was thinking of building 558 during her MMR period or with OCU markings in white. Definitely will not consider building 558 as a K2 as I'll be building XH560 at some point. Cheers, WV908
  6. My fourth would either be a Black Buck example, or XM655 in her current scheme. XH558 isn't really on my radar and I'm already building two 200 series aircraft, one of which is in wraparound camo so I'm not too worried. Cheers, WV908
  7. Thanks Alan, I'll have a good look into what was carried (and cross reference it with what you supplied in the kit) I didn't know you served during GW1 and I've not heard an account like yours before (I tend to focus on the Scud Hunter side of it) . It certainly puts it into perspective how scary it was. Cheers, WV908 (I'm still having no luck replying to your emails sadly)
  8. WV908,

    I can cast you a set of lower wings as that is all you will need, since , I reprofiled them, they will fit the upper ones as before. The leading edge extension, I have not got round to, just yet, that will come at a later date when I work out how to design it. At the moment,  have no materials, as suppliers are running slow, I have been waiting for months now, so I will probably not see anything until winter, I have been told.

      Thanks Alan,

        It's much appreciated - I'm more than happy to wait for them 

  9. Hi Alan, Sorry I missed this, but I was thinking of things to complete a Gulf War fit. All my spare missiles from Phantoms are going onto two Tornado F3 builds sadly. Cheers, WV908
  10. @Icelandic Fine Art Did enough of the original moulds for the B.2 survive to be able to cast me a new set of wings to replace my original 'full cast' ones? Cheers, WV908
  11. I'm looking forwards to the Mandator too - Is the one at Hendon the only survivor? Cheers, WV908
  12. Theoretically there must be at least two people with two sets of uppers. Mine was from Jadlam too but they are not able to help with spares. A direct line to the Airfix spares department is the way to go. Jadlam at best can give you a refund as they are out of stock now. Cheers, WV908
