    No problem I’m still waiting for ‘the hit’ - it’s not happened yet so it’s unlikely it will arrive before Christmas now Cheers, WV908

    Gannet AEW kits in 1/48 scale?

    Ooh I got a photo embedded from facebook! That’s a first. I’ve not really done much to it yet apart from buying aftermarket decals and cleaning up the flash. There’s some mould imperfections but it’s nothing a skim of filler won’t be able to solve. I understand there’s still a few of the 20 kits left. Mine was 9 and I know 12 has gone. This is the contact email for the bloke who makes the kits if anyone wants to try and grab one; alanwilson042000@yahoo.co.uk Cheers, WV908

    1/48 resin Gannet AEW3

    Mine has arrived too. Not looked at the canopy yet, but the decals will definitely have to go - the rest of the kit is brilliant though. Is anyone able to offer assistance on how I need to cut the wing for the fold? I’m a bit perplexed by different panel lines on the top and bottom of the wing. Cheers, WV908

    Go on, treat yourself! After all it is Christmas. I’ve just sorted my invoice for 009, so that’s only 11 left! anyone have any ideas on their chosen airframe? I’ve decided on XL502 and will be looking at folding the wings Cheers, WV908

    Hi Bentwaters81tfw, I’ve received the same, looks like we’ve both managed to bag one. I forgot that Elvington has a Gannet, XL502... so that’s three aircraft for me to decide between.... Cheers, WV908

    Email sent, let’s see if I get lucky! Torn between doing Yeovilton’s or Newark’s if I manage to bag one. Cheers, WV908

    I’ve got my pre-order in with Rails of Sheffield (I feel odd buying non-railway stuff from there haha) and no money has been taken yet. The poor wallet is hiding in the corner just waiting for it to spring.... Cheers, WV908
  9. Thanks for the reply Denford, It will be a shame if they don’t do the IV. I’m sure someone will be along with a conversion kit if they don’t. Cheers, WV908
  10. This went a bit quiet post release very quickly. Has anyone dove into their kit properly yet, or is everyone waiting for the Mk.IV? I thought that with the flyer / survivor markings people would be going nuts for this, but I haven’t even picked this one up yet - and I really adore the Blenheim Cheers, WV908
  11. Nice idea, but I thought the hit and miss ‘lets model the plastic abomination* / prototype’ culture died in the late 80’s? Anyway it’ll be interesting to see what Anigrand’s take on it is, and I may be in the market for one if it looks convincing. Either that or wait three/four/five years for an Airfix one. *recycled bits of an earlier BAE project + RTP’d tornado landing gear Cheers, WV908

    Decal sets suggestion open topic.

    I’m not sure if it’s already been mentioned, but please consider a sheet both in 1/72 and 1/48 of the Tornado retirement schemes - we’ve seen two already and I believe there is a third on the way. To populate the sheet a little more there is also the Marham special tail ZG771 and the ex-41 squadron special tail ZA607 EB-X, of which i’d especially like to see done Waiting in hope, WV908
  13. Hi Artie, thanks for the answer - i’ll have a raid of my spares box How many of these are there left to order, if you don’t mind me asking? Also are are there any photos? I’ve scoured your Facebook page but didn’t find anything Cheers, WV908
  14. Hi Artie, will you be producing both styles of canopy? I quite fancy having a go at ‘Red 11’ which is currently on the UK circuit Cheers, WV908
