  1. Airfix might turn their attention to some post-war RAF Transport Command subjects. The VC-10 is mentioned above, but I also hope to see an Argosy, Beverley, Andover, and Britannia in 1:72 (perhaps not all in the same year!). Zvezda have the Hercules covered. Also on the wish list: New Tool: 1:72 Jaguar one and two-seater Scimitar Wessex, Whirlwind, Puma, Chinook Dominie, Jetstream 1:48 Beagle Basset Harrier GR1/3/T2
  2. Lovely work! Do you think we are likely to see a new tooled 1/72 or 1/48 Jag from one of the major manufacturers any time soon?
  3. Does anyone know the correct colors for the insides of the main flaps on the Shackleton AEW? The new Revell kit gives DSG, but I seem to remember them being a sort of zinc green chromate. Thanks!

    Yes, I've heard the Kittyhawk Jag doesn't go together well. Good luck with yours. Are you doing a work-in-progress?

    I saw something about a new tool Italeri Jag in 72, but not sure when we might expect it.

    Any interest in a Jaguar GR1/3, either scale?
  7. Congrats on a fantastic model and on the award at the weekend--much deserved! I found your post at an opportune time as I am about to start work on the Classic Airframes version. Did you happen to do a WIP on Britmodeller? In particular, I would like to learn: what paints you used; how you did the weathering; and how you avoided silvering on the stencil decals that are mostly transparent. Thanks and well done!
  8. Great work! May I ask which brand of dayglo you used on the T7. Thanks.
  9. wow, what great builds! Did you post a work in progress for any of these?
  10. Hi Sten: Did you ever make further progress on the Dominie? Am working on my own and looking for guidance. Thanks.
  11. I am also working on a white/gray Nimrod. About two years into the build, I am now trying to refashion the intakes and adjacent searchlights.
  12. Hi Steve: I was wondering if you ever finished the project. I'd like to know if I can build an RAF Hawk T2 (the black ones based at Valley) from the 1/72 Airfix BAE Systems kit. Chris
  13. Hi Shaun: did you ever complete your Fly JP or post more of your build? I'm about to start on one and am looking for guidance. Thanks
