  1. Apparently this was revealed four years ago, but no idea why it has taken so long, so many of us had given up on it.
  2. Superb jobs. However, sorry to have to mention this but there is an error in the 26 decals Air Atlantique stripes round the nose. They should not come to a point at the top of the roof, but curve round the top smoothly. I'll let Ray know!
  3. It just goes to show you don't need to buy an expensive state-of-the-art Buccaneer kit as the basic shape of the old FROG kit is good and once all the 'see through' areas are blocked off, a decent model can be made. I built a couple of these, one being all grey 809 Squadron of the "Phoenix Five" aerobatic team. Also have that Airfix NA.39 in my stash which will be converted to a Buccaneer S.1.
  4. I have just had it confirmed by Mikro Mir that they will release a 1/144th Handley Page Hastings by the end of the year. Can't wait!
  5. I have just built this and wasn't sure either as those colour photos were taken with different brands of film. However Xtracolour make the correct shade of 'BEA red' No.X552 from Hannants. I recreated the exact scene from the Beatles film " A Hard Day's Night" here https://www.facebook.com/officialairfix/posts/10158125947751271
  6. Quite agree and on that note I think a Hastings in 1/144th would be better due to the tooling price, cost of any subsequent kit and size. Maybe we should lobby Micro Mir, who have already made Argosies and Beverleys for us in 1/144?
  7. Thanks Dave but only 4 sheets left in 1/144th and one in 1/72nd there! Thankfully I lashed out and bought a number of sheets when Mel started this.,
  8. I went to the Aviation Hobby Shop before Covid struck us and they had hardly any left from your list, so are those out-of-print being reprinted?
  9. Not correct I'm afraid. The aircraft in this film is Bristol 170 Wayfarer, G-AIFV, not a 'Super Freighter', so ths will be of little help in the model build, but good to watch.
  10. Correct! I have built an Air Kruise Dragon Rapide using the S&M decal sheet which has dark blue trim.
  11. You're a brave man Iain. Having flown in a couple of Andovers, I would love to have a model of one,,,but 1:32!!!! Where would you put it when built? S&M models have done a resin Andover in 1/72, but I considered it too expensive. All I want are representative models of the aircraft I've flown in and a 1/144th Andover would suit me fine, so hoping someone like Mikro Mir or Mark1 will do one.
  12. Nicola Sturgeon won't be happy about the United Kingdom lettering
  13. Many thanks to Toby as I accepted his kind offer of replacement decals as mine had just partly distintegrated in water and only a few were of use. I have now managed to finish my SRN.1 hovercraft.
  14. Looking good - I'm impressed so far. Will be following this as I am tempted by this kit but can't decide which boxing to get? I understand that this will be released as a Viking with King's Flight decals at some stage.
  15. Quite correct - the MDC is fitted between the canopy laminations, so definately would not be externally on the model.
