  1. There's also David Little's Combat Kit/Conversions on Ebay (seller id : engine748) He's only got the resin conversion listed at the moment: Combat Conversions Boeing E-3D Sentry AEW-1 resin conversion kit 1/72 scale | eBay but he does list the decals as a separate item every so often. Edit 25/10/2021 Now listed as a separate item https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/284502978646?hash=item423db2f056:g:ExEAAOSwlZNeyXel Regards Rob
  2. I believe the only way to buy these now (certainly the '300') is via David Little's ebay shop. Once the current 'Combat Kit' items listed on the Freightdog site are gone , they won't be replenished. I think Colin the owner mentioned this in a previous post which eludes me for the moment. Regards
  3. Maarten, Yes I did notice that the H 145 blades looked not quite right, but considered that as it would cost the best part of £20 to import the Naval models set to the UK the extra resin included in the Air Graphics set costed in. It's also fixable though , spending a bit of time with some plastic strip and rod, although I'll keep my eyes open for your PE sets. Regards Rob
  4. My 'Air-Graphics' Juno & Jupiter sets turned up today. Nicely cast, still awaiting instructions, which will be made available via their website later. Can't see any images of the castings on their website, so a couple posted below: I'm hopefully not infringing any copyright, if I am, the mods can let me know and I'll remove the images. Decals available on their sheet 72-010 https://air-graphics.uk/shop/ols/products/air72-010-british-military-air-arms-update-set-1 Regards
  5. Hello, The 'Air Graphics' conversion sets are now listed on their website. https://air-graphics.uk/shop/ols/products/cs-019-airbus-h345-juno-ht1-conversion https://air-graphics.uk/shop/ols/products/cs-021-airbus-h-145-jupiter-ht1 £25 each + P&P Regards
  6. See the link in TheRealMrEd's post above. Regards
  7. A06022, Now available to order on the Airfix website - £27.99 Airfix A06022 Blackburn Buccaneer S Mk.2 RAF | Kit Model Regards
  8. Just noticed this (on Ebay): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Combat-Kits-BAe-EAP-Development-Aircraft-1-72-scale-resin-kit/284105033289?hash=item4225fac649:g:NIkAAOSwJ9FfusrB I was tempted by the Freightdog (Silver Cloud) offering a while back. Tempted again............... Regards
  9. 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
  10. https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/engine748 Is David Little aka 'Combat Kits'. Some of his stuff is also available on the Freightdog Models site. Very nicely moulded and prompt delivery. Regards
  11. ... and also showing as available to pre-order at Tiger Hobbies: https://www.tigerhobbies.co.uk/model-kits/ZVEZDA-Z321-1:72-C-130-H-TRANSPORT-PLANE-WITH-ROYAL-AIR-FORCE-MARKINGS?sort=pd.name&order=DESC £44.99 free UK delivery Regards
  12. 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
  13. Yes it was the old tooling of the GR5/7. If I remember correctly, the extra parts consisted of Paveway bombs, the same sprue that was included in the GR4 box. edit: there's a picture of the extra sprues in this article. https://intscalemodeller.com/viewtopic.php?t=25616 .... and yes, I think the same sprue(s) was included in the last release of the old Buccaneer moulding. Regards
  14. 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!) The Jaguar GR1, The Harrier GR7 and the Tornado F3. The Tornado GR4 and Jaguar got new box art. The Tornado F3 and Harrier GR7 got a sticker on the box proclaiming 'Now Includes New Weapons'. 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 68 parts. Regards
  15. A similar question was asked at the end of June: Regards
