  1. Before your post was edited, you mentioned "the designer": does that mean that it was a one man, or woman, design job?
  2. Apologies for the diversion and a possibly stupid question, but I take it from this recommendation that appliance white works well on a large flat surface: would it also be suitable for the underside of a 1/72 Skyhawk? I ask this because I can imagine a paint that is designed for something on a domestic scale to spray on quite fiercely and clog up the nooks and crannies of a small model.
  3. My guesses would be for a Ki-100 (because they can scan it at Cosford), a Douglas Skyknight (because I fancy one), a Mistel Ju88a4/Bf109f4 (because I read about it years ago) and a Tornado (because of the reference to P45's flying about). The first three in 72nd scale. The Tornado in 48th scale would be enough of a big deal for them to announce it at Telford.
  4. Yeah, brand loyalty can be a bit of a trap. Even so, the impression that I get from reading various posts is that Airfix's existence is more than slightly precarious and for that reason I would stick to buying their products.
  5. I don't really think it's a hint, it's just wishful thinking. I'd like an F 4 and would prefer to give my money to Airfix.
  6. The box art for the Mig 17 gives a hint to a new F 4b, so that's good enough for me.
  7. I found by accident a French site called Aventures de l'histoire from 2008, which quoted part of an interview with Darrell Burge and also gave a list of the top ten best selling aircraft kits for the previous year (all manufacturers, not just Airfix). Of that list, Airfix have produced seven; the three missing are:- the DH Mosquito (it wouldnt be a great surprise if that appeared in 2018), the FW 190d (maybe the cad file for the current FW 190 could be stretched), but , most strangely, number ten on the list was the Mistel combination. Maybe Airfix have been holding back on a Ju 88 in order to produce an option for a Mistel variant.
  8. Firstly, I only know about the skybird 86 prentice from a snippet on another website and I am assuming that it is in 1/72 scale: if that is incorrect just ignore the following. The RAFDec decal sheet 7213 covers eight schemes for hawker hunters, but-possibly to fill up space- there are five squadron crests included as extras, one of which is for 22fts with a placement illustration showing a piston provost. Hannants are currently showing two sheets available.I hope that helps.
