  1. I'm rather relieved that a Viggen isn't on that list as I've shelled out for one of the second run JetMads kits which should be here in the near future. I'm actually more excited about the Gripen than I am the Draken, which I'm surprised about. Regardless, I'll likely get both to sit with the big girl! Cheers, WV908
  2. I'm 99% certain that's a render and not a built kit. Cheers, WV908
  3. Looks on ebay Three people have spent circa £100 on CA Ansons in the last month. Ouch. I bet they are kicking themselves. I will take one please! Cheers, WV908
  4. I'd guess a new-tooled wing. It is noted on the site as 'new parts' I've already got enough XIV's in line to be converted to XVIII's, but that Indian scheme is just too nice to pass up. Cheers, WV908
  5. A bit pricey but fantastic news regardless. The cads are a joy to look at. I can't wait to get one. Cheers, WV908
  6. Just as a heads up, Hannants now have the kit up for backorder with a 10% discount I definitely have not just ordered my second Cheers, WV908
  7. Hi Rich, EN398 is one of the marking options in the kit, just in her earlier guise before she became Johnson's steed. Cheers, WV908
  8. Ah that is odd that they weren't merged - thanks for the reply anyway No worries, I figured it was an open question anyway Cheers, WV908
  9. I echo your comments - there was mention of the Buchon Scale Models 'E' wing conversion for one. Best person to ask is @Homebee
  10. Gutted for the guys at Buchon Scale models - I nearly pre-ordered the whole conversion a few weeks ago but decided to hold off in-case Airfix did this. It's safe to say my order is now in with Airfix. The pre-production model shows the pointy rudder is being tooled, so all I'm missing now is the 'E' wing armament for MK356, which will come from BSM. Lots of clamouring already for decals / masks for MH434 and I can see why. Fingers crossed somebody will provide because that will be my choice for if I get another. Cheers, WV908
  11. Sadly that sheet appears to be out of stock everywhere - but it looks like only the two largest roundels would be any good if at all. At any rate, I need 12 of the things to cover this and one of my PR.XIX's so that's a lot of sheets to buy. Cheers, WV908
  12. Hi Gatesy, Yes he did contact me to say the moulds were worn out and he is remaking them in the new year. I kept my order so look forward to the conversion arriving in the near future. For decals i'm going to be investing in a silhouette cutter to make painting masks as D-type roundels just do not exist in 1/32 bar those on the AIMS montone Spitfires sheet (too small) and in the Revell / Matchbox 1/32 Spitfire 22 kits (too big). Code / serial letters don't seem to be an issue fortunately. Thanks gingerbob, much appreciated. Cheers, WV908
  13. Hi Ossington, They are available through Jim's eBay shop (search 1/32 Seafire conversion) - I bought the last of the current batch of XVII conversions but the XV is still available. He does Spitfire Griffon conversions too. The other option (also usually available through eBay) are the GMF conversions - but they only cater for Spits, not Seafires. Cheers, WV908
  14. Hi all - I've just picked up a copy of Jim Brown's 1/32 Seafire 17 conversion and intend to build SX336 with it. I note that there are some excellent walk-around photos of SX336 on here which form a good basis for cockpit work etc. Would anyone be able to suggest some useful aftermarket for this conversion please? Looking at cockpit details, brass cannon and rather crucially decals. I'll be using the Revell IX for this conversion and will be modifying the wings of this rather than buying the GMF wings. Cheers, WV908
  15. I'm not really sure what to think of the bang seats in this kit. They are out of proportion, that's for certain. Sadly the pavla seats are currently out of stock everywhere so I thought I'd have a go at improving the kit seats; Here's me worrying about the seats and I'm already one-up on my build choice of Duxford's Blackbird - she doesn't have any! I'll have the canopies shut on mine, but you do still see a fair bit through those windows hence my attempt to refine the kit seats. The headbox has been built up on top and had it's sides and rear reprofiled. The backplate of the seat has been reprofiled and the drogue cover has been modelled with a bit of putty. There's just not enough detail in the cockpits as they are for me to want to pose them open. I hope someone will do a detail set for them as the insides of the canopies and the bulkhead are just way too bare. There is further hope of an SR.71B/C boxing as it was very evident on my upper fuselage prior to cleanup that the rear cockpit is a slide mould / insert. Cheers, WV908 EDIT: I haven't reduced the width of the headbox as it's dictated by the seat rails which are set too far apart.
