  1. Airport '75, 747 gets hit by a light plane and Charleton Heston gets dangled from the 53 to try for an air to air transfer. Saw it when I was about eleven and always wanted a kit of it. Paul Harrison
  2. Only one built but a lot of schemes for it. I've seen it as British Cargo Airlines, Transmeridian (two schemes) and Heavylift that I can remember plus there was Azerbaijan Airlines, Baku Express, and a couple of others registered it in Ghana (red cheat and fin with big white 44 on it) and the Philipines but I'm not sure if they flew it. Think it's in Bournemouth now in bare metal finish with it's original reg N447T. Paul Harrison
  3. Revell got all the German WW2 aircraft kits including the ones you mentioned plus the Arado Ar234, Heinkel He115 and He162, though I'm not sure if they used the Me262 mould because the one I built in the late 70's was Revells own and kind of wide in the fuselage and had the Revell trademark on the inside. The 707 was a very early -100 I think and the last time I saw the Herald it was from a company called Maquette in the mid 90's. The Maryland is still with Ark not sure if they have the Baltimore though. Novo released it in the late 70's I think, sure I saw it in a big model shop near Wembly Stadium(?) when I got hold of a novo Fairey Delta 2. Really wanted the VC-10 but didn't have much pocket money back then! Paul Harrison
  4. First Starfighter I built was the old Airfix Luftwaffe one. Lured by the boxart in our local corner shop! Really needs replaced. Paul Harrison
  5. Probably need to mortgage the house to afford one coz their tiny Gloster Pioneer is £35 in Hannants! Paul Harrison
  6. IIRC it was made from a 66 foot radio antenna mast, the undercarriage is from an F-4 Phantom and it had a Volkswagon engine for power. Before building it they were originally going to paint a couple of Saab Viggens black. Paul Harrison
  7. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10644835 Don't know their postal charges but Hobby Search are currently charging about $32, list price is around $41. Paul Harrison
  8. Platz are doing a Kawasaki C-1 in 1/144th. saw it on Facebook a few hours ago along with a 1/72nd Mil 24. Looked like it's the Zvezda kit to me though it could a new one? Paul Harrison
  9. Thanks for posting that SeaVenom, bookmarked it and I'll go exploring when I have more time. Loads of stuff from childhood on there, was only last week thinking about Ace Of Wands, Children Of The Stones and HR Puff'n Stuff! Paul Harrison
  10. Didn't know it had disappeared that late Ratch, thought it had gone a lot earlier. Can't remember ever seeing one in a shop but I liked the looks of it. With the Jetstream the only real world options I can think of are the prototype and the slightly altered scheme from the UFO tv series. Looked like all they did was cut out the Star from the USAF Star and Bar. Paul Harrison
  11. I did the Braniff kit when it came out, definitely three upperdeck windows. Revell's kit is much better detailed and more accurate. Seem to remember that Airfix drew up their kit from pre-production general arrangement drawings so it's a bit off in quite a few areas. Paul Harrison
  12. Was going to get one but 40 quid is far too much for the addition of a big fuel tank. I've still got several Esci and Italeri boxings in the stash so I'll give it a miss. Paul Harrison
  13. Saw that over on Round 2's site a few hours ago Gavin, massive improvememnt on the old MPC/Airfix kit. Would love to get several but with the crazy prices now I doubt I'll be able to get one! Paul Harrison
  14. Think it was Zhengdefu that did a 1/48th one a long while ago. Paul Harrison
  15. There are two others in 1/48th by PMA and (IIRC) Zhengdefu. Paul Harrison edit Seem to remember a 1/48th single seater kit too. I've got a 1/72nd 2 seater kit in the stash somewhere.
