    Airfix 2020

    I was looking at that the other day, surely they will come in due course.

    Airfix for 2019

    Generally quite happy with the schedule, Bulldog is a great kit (need one or two) , Buccaneer means I can stop rescribing my current (now stalled) project. the Demon is a nice to have as I can now build one again (nostalgic reasons) and would not mind a re-release of the original Hurricane mkIV (this is the first kit I ever built way back when) and P40E (this was the first kit I ever saw way back when) (this getting old thing and nostalgia is a bitch). Would love it if Airfix would re-release some of their other classics, I need a Cessna O2, their Avro 504 (need a couple) Dh-4 (retool to DH-9 would go down well) and Sopwith Pup are rather good. Yes like others there is a long list of new tool kits I would also like to see but other manufacturers are keeping that side supplied (have to keep H and Royal mail fed) but there is a limit as to how many (0) I can build in a year.
  4. sign up with Airfix for a pre-order with delivery to a friend in the UK then overnight DHL/whoever to you. Or even with a UK online retailer and specify courier delivery to you.
  5. To be pedantic (or pain in the a) there are 4, two from Airfix (S1 and S2) Frog and Matchbox
  6. Ohh yes, Now I can stop rescribing my old kit and no longer need to find aftermarket intakes. Thank me later
  7. Ohh I like that Typhoon and a number of re-releases that will go down well
  8. Nice, well that consigns the Smer kit to the pagesof history
  9. well we already have two of them (new tools) 1/24th scale Hellcat 1/48th scale Spitfire FR XIV and at least two potential modified tools 1/48 th scale Hunter F9 1/72 nd scale Wellngton MkII so how many left to ponder upon. 2 more? 1/72 Me262A Jabo 1/72 Ju88A
  10. I wonder how many of the old Arfix railway series will see the light of day through this. Although IIRC most (all) went to Darpol

    Old Airfix Do17E

    Dont have one so cannot comment

    Old Airfix Do17E

    Not bad overall, typical Airfix from the era, some scribed (soft) panel lines and limited rivits, Engine nacelles were complex to assemble and IIRC are supposedely oversize. limited cockpit detail, heavy tread details on the wheels, very much a product of its time.

    Question about Academy/AM b-25 G

    The original Accurate Miniatures release was a conversion set to use on the standard B-25 kit so unless Academy have removed the clear parts they should all be there, and from the online reviews it seems as if they have the basic B25 kit in the box. This may help as well https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/b-25g-shark-mouth-1-48-academy.47491/

    SAAF Furies

    Graham There is an access panel in that location. See it on the drawings in the MMP book but as it is behind the wing leading edge does not show up in plan views. Detail photos in the MMP book show it open on both the Nimrod and Fury

    SAAF Furies

    Bottom one has many Fury looks about it so I think you are right, just never seen pics of a Fury with the racks which threw me, top one I am sure is a Hartebees, that looks like an oil cooler on the underside of the cowling in front of the radiator?
