    Airfix 2019

    Airfix saw a few sugestions of mine on one of their RIAT Facebook posts yesterday and have sent them to the design team for consideration. I seriously doubt anything will come of it but it's nice to see they read the stuff posted. And the sugestions were an accurate Eurofighter Typhoon, a family of Super King Airs, a Kawasaki C-2 and a Kawasaki P-1 so don't hold your breath waiting for them! Paul Harrison

    Airfix 2019

    Super King Air 200. Enormous number of of users/colour schemes, military and civilian. Used by the RAF, include some decals for the Flying Doctors/RAAF/Army so it'll sell in Australia, RNZAF for New Zealand sales etc. I'd buy loads of them and before anyone mentions it I'm too scared of Mach 2's reputation to buy theirs!

    Airfix 2019

    Didn't know they were looking at the 757, I would have bought a truckload of them! Love the look of the 757 and I hear Zvezda are working on one. If they do release it they'll be getting my money. Paul Harrison (who is sticking with his old Me 262's because he ain't paying no £18 for an Airfix one!)

    Appliance a white, Airliner modelling

    I always use Halfords Appliance White, not too good with an airbrush and hate the clean up! If using spray cans remember to start spraying ahead of the model then sweep across it because cans often spatter at first and do several light coats as others have said. Very tempting to blast it in one go but it'll run. Paul Harrison

    Viggen LIDARed at Newark

    A Viggen fits with the Airfix remit of replacing old back catalogue moulds, think I read somewhere that the kit of the prototype sold pretty well (I had several) as did their old Draken. Paul Harrison

    The world just got more ridiculous!

    HLJ is now out of stock of the Wave Haunebu boxing but it is on backorder. Price has gone up a bit though, it has massively jumped by £2.27p to an eye watering £27.27p plus post! If you want it cheap get it from HLJ! Paul Harrison

    The world just got more ridiculous!

    If anyone is still interested in flying saucers this kit was also issued as the Adamski UFO of 1950's fame. It has the military stuff deleted and new interiors in 1/48th scale. Also I've been in Scotland since 1979 and tasted Haggis exactly once and never again! Deep fried Mars Bars are kinda interesting though. Paul Harrison

    The world just got more ridiculous!

    How about a nice conspiracy theory? This story might have been a marketing ploy from Revell themselves to shift the kits, it's £50 here but you can still get the original Head & Hand/Wave kit for £25 in Japan at HLJ. Surface post is pretty cheap, at least it was last time I got stuff from them. Paul Harrison

    Airfix Classics Launched

    Always thought they should have done an Italian Job set of three Mini's and that Spirit Of Free Enterprise ship. Paul Harrison

    Airfix 2019

    RE the Whirlwind I seem to remember an article in The Aeroplane or some other magazine that someone is building a full size one using some original parts as patterns for new components and all drawings that have survived. Airfix could have a chat with them maybe? Also as they are in financial trouble they could concentrate on small 1/72nd fighter moulds. They could probably churn out three or four fighters instead of another big kit much as I'd love a new B-29! Paul Harrison
  11. Is this in addition to the King Tiger with Porsche turret, Panther Ausf D (both in 1/35th) and the Super Deformed "Pinky" Sherman, Sherman Firefly and Type VII U-Boat? Paul Harrison
  12. Moebius has announced the long rumoured kit of the USS Kelvin in 1/1000th scale, should be around 11 inches long. News came from the Cult TV man site. https://culttvman.com/main/moebius-models-news-uss-kelvin-is-coming/ Paul Harrison
