  1. They replied to me really fast, but did ask for some photos of the parts, hence the wait as I was only able to reply at the weekend. I got an email Monday morning to say the parts were on the way Cheers, WV908
  2. I have now received a response from Airfix spares and the replacements for my short-shot parts are on the way. Cheers, WV908
  3. I've fully checked the kit over now and rest of it is moulded perfectly, so only my sprue B is affected. An email has gone out to Airfix spares for replacement parts so I'm awaiting their response. Cheers, WV908
  4. As of yet, no, but I wanted to see if anyone else had a similar issue. Cheers, WV908
  5. I have a short shot sprue B Mostly not an issue as I can repair the nose gear bay, but my intake trunking is not really useable,so I'm thankful for the intake blanks. Two out of the right airbrake parts are short shot, but I don't plan on having the brakes open on this build I have two parts B26 and B27 which are just blobs but I haven't trawled through the instructions yet to see what they are for, but they are easily replacable. A bit disappointing that short shot sprues have made it past QC again. Cheers, WV908
  6. I've always been under the impression there were two (three if you count the SAAF) types of drop tank - the original type and a later modified version - I've always found it difficult to tell from photos, but first remember reading about it in relation to those that were fitted to the Gulf War aircraft. Cheers, WV908
  7. Thanks for the replies and info everyone - so I'll be ok to use the arrestor hook bay as supplied for XW527 as delivered to 15 sqn. Thankfully the supplied slipper tanks appear to be the correct type for my build too. Cheers, WV908
  8. Does anyone have any reference photos for the differences between the two types of arrestor hook bay please? Cheers, WV908
  9. Just to clarify the doggy doo doo bags were not from me Cheers, WV908
  10. I think I've made my choice - S.2B XW527 of 15 sqn RAF Laarbruch, Germany, May 1972 Fresh off the production line as an early S.2B before the bulged payload bay was fitted. In this condition it had camo topsides with a grey belly, had hi-viz roundels and fin flash, white XV and serial, with black underwing serials. I have decals for XW526 in this condition but that crashed with two fatalities, so a simple number swap avoids that and matches the serial of a surviving cockpit in Italy. Cheers, WV908
  11. I was on the fence about this kit due to the price and the fact I have two of the old tooling in the stash... and then I saw the Britmodeller review and ordered one straight away Apart from the obvious bulged payload bay, what other items would I need to repurpose from one of my old S.2B kits to make a late RAF or Gulf war example? Cheers, WV908
  12. I'm sorry but build reviews just don't lie - especially ones where the modeller has had to cut the canopy pieces up to make them fit. I really hope the Vampire and the Japanese pair currently being worked on prove to be a massive step up in build / fit quality - if they are (and infinity decides to use alignment pins for the fuselage), I expect a Marauder would be a very good seller. Cheers, WV908
  13. Just read a build review of the Infinity S2BC and well, let's just say I hope a new Marauder will come from ICM Cheers, WV908
  14. Accompanying photo of the Jag as requested - with a friend too! Cheers, WV908
  15. Afternoon all, Alan has provided me with a photo update on the 1/32 SHAR FRS.1 and has asked if I would mind posting it for him; Cheers, WV908
