  3. Just had my delivery from Tiger Hobbies (well packaged by the way as always), and what a thing of beauty it is. Can't believe it's 50+ years since I picked that Airfix series 8/ Type 3 box up as an 11 year old from Woolworths. thanks again Zvezda Regards

  6. Noted regarding the Buccaneer kit. I've got one buried in the loft stash (somewhere) along with every Airfix/Heller/MPC 1/72 boxing of the MRCA/Tornado GR1/4,F3, Harrier GR1/3/5/7/9 FRS.1/FA.2 (inc P1127), Jaguar & NA39/Buccaneer and Airfix club specials (sad I know). Regards

Regards
  8. The 1/72 F3 version did indeed have extra parts added to it to make it into an 'EF3'. Four kits at the time had extra parts added. The Tornado GR1 to update it to a GR4 (sarcastic smiley!)

I believe the starter set only contains the original F3 parts, although the Airfix website lists the parts count as 168! The original kits contained
