  2. Well done Kinetic, thats the right way to do it. Look forward to 2022 and the new 2021 surprise
  3. Great news, too much to hope for a Y and the T'bird later? Hopefully to be followed by the Mirage F1
  4. With regard to Australian Mirages if you havent seen it there was a book published by Mushroom Models, in the early 2000's I think, Mirage IIIO Colours and Markings In RAAF Service by Paul Mason and Darren Mottram Over 300 pages on the Australian Mirages well worth a look if you can find a copy, unfortunately mine is safely packed away otherwise I would have checked for you. Quick google gave the following review link https://ipmsusa.org/reviews/Archive/Books/Aircraft/Mushroom_Mirage_IIIO/Mushroom_Mirage_IIIO.htm Cheers Chris
  5. Mine built quite well, a few years ago now and lives in a box in the atic somewhere, with no major problems but don't expect the detail of modern kits. I cant comment on its accuracy but looked fine to me. Give it a try.
  6. There is also the Heller 1/48 Mirage 111 B / C, can build either out of the box. Can be found quite cheaply on auction sites. Assuming you don't mind old tech eg raised panel lines.
  7. The old grey cells have been stirring, didn't Italeri issue this or something similar a few years ago? https://www.italeri.com/en/product/1993 Still always good to see another Mirage.
  8. Not sure about the Navy but 12 Sqn at Lossiemouth
  9. Read that Newark could reopen mid April outside and mid May inside. Apoarently awaiting further guidance due this month. Want to go back there too, plenty of interesting aircraft.
  10. I had thought that the dihedral tailplane was introduced with the Mk VI, unless some early Mk VI had the horizontal version?
  11. Reply from Clearprop models on the 'late version' Hello! A later version will be available next year. Great to get such a quick reply from a manufacturer. Personally had hoped for a quicker release, now the decision to get the early one or wait for the later one......
  12. Thanks for the replies above. CP4802 on pre order at Hannants https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CP4802?result-token=n7FUn £58.49 (£64.99 without the 10% per order discount) The masks and a brass set also listed.
  13. Great news, anyone know when the late version CP48001, which was shown first with a blue scheme, will be released please? What are the differences or are all parts for both versions in this boxing or just different decals? Thanks
  14. Just trying this too, found the work bench bit but while there are two items for the 20th Jan with all pictures showing both are actually from pre Christmas eg Sabre and Buccaneer, perhaps the date they were added to the new site? I had thought the first workbench of the new year was to be on the 8th Jan? Hope this not a sign of things to come....... Chris
  15. When the model first came out there was lots of discussion on that very point but cant find it now. From memory, and hope, think it would be painted silver that would also make it easier for me to try and replicate!
  16. Found this group on Facebook, worth a look as lots of photos and memories of the Javelin. Also includes some recent posts / photos from the son of Sqn Ldr /Wg Cdr George Beaton including the silver machine. Happily Geroge Beaton is still with us. https://m.facebook.com/groups/886725604719419/permalink/3757890814269536/
  17. Hello Sabrejet I am interested in seeing this but I just seem to get a page asking for me to donate, or a 503 error probably doing something wrong but any advice please? MTIA Chris
  18. Is this the old testors one, a new mould or something different please?
  19. Available from Hannants now. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ICM48290?result-token=gGMTQ
  20. Sword also have/had a sale on about 200 Krona off. At least last night. Worked out about £45 inc uk postage.
  21. Emailed Paolo and had a quick response. Cost was €80 and post to UK €20 also some decals for €12 if required. All currently sold out but he expects to have more in April.
  22. Looking very nice but couldn't see and info on price or how and where to buy from, do you have a link please?
  23. Heron now at Hannants, and no doubt other model shops. Jetstream and Dominie showing as May 2020 at Wonderland. Shame not all at same time could save a lot on postage
