    Airfix product announcement at Telford 2018

    There is, so we don't really need another one just yet. If an American type, an F4U-1A would be pretty nice in 1/24.

    ...Well, if we ever did see a Griffon Spit in 1/24, I would be one, very happy bunny!

    Good point on the licensing fees. Of course, that could put paid to a new 1/24 P-51B or D. Can't remember, as it's not at hand, but I'm sure my Tamiya 1/32 P-51D is licensed by Boeing. Steve

    If it were a 1/24 Lysander, that would be very, very nice!...but 1/48 would make more sense. Think the law says that the 1/24 releases have to be fighters or fighter bombers....ok, dive bombers too!

    That's a good point, because I'm just as keen to see all of the potential possibilities for the Classics range realised. There's so many of their old kits I would like to see in this range that the new tool stuff wouldn't bother me half as much. SRN1, Rotodyne, Cherokee Arrow, Islander, Beaver, Bassett, Bird Dog, most of the "Modern" car series....the list goes on. That's where Airfix would get my money. Let's hope that the range keeps going and we see more of their long lost back catalogue. Steve

    Thanks Mika! Email sent. Best regards; Steve

    You know, I think a 1/24 Sea Fury could sell just as well as a Me 262. It's very popular on the other side of the pond too. A 262 would be nice, but.....well, Sea Fury!

    I have the same problem with the Chicken kits in Morrisons. They always seem to be missing the head, feathers and feet. I think there must be a quality control issue somewhere.

    Oh! That's fantastic news! Made my day. Am I able to pre-order a Seneca? Best regards; Steve

    And if the farming proves non profitable, then Airfix can release an aftermarket adventure park conversion set with soft play area and petting zoo.

    I wonder if we'll ever see a 1/24 Gladiator? The original idea of a 1/24 Mosquito was shelved in favour of the 1/48th version....but we got it eventually thanks to Trevor Snowdon. The idea of a 1/24 Gladiator was sidelined in favour of the Fw 190A......so maybe? The possible colour schemes would quite impressive. Steve

    I know what I would like to see, but I'll just be happy with any new kits that Airfix release and that it makes them money. I like their kits a lot and just want to keep seeing them churning them out. Steve

    What music are you playing ? Part IV

    Just spun this from the Urgh! A Music War album. Got to love a bit of Devo! Steve

    What music are you playing ? Part IV

    Count me in too! I'll throw in Warriors. This was the first single I bought with my own money and watched him perform it on Crackerjack on Friday September 16th 1983. I was 13 years old. I know the date, because two days later I was at the Great Warbirds Air Display, sponsored by Gary and got to see him running around West Malling during the course of the day (including waving the Union Jack from the back of the RNHF Swordfish during it's display.) Never thought then, that one day I would get to meet him regularly when I helped out on Eddie Coventry's Yak 11 which he flew regularly in the early 90s. And blow me! The Crackerjack performance is on Youtube... ...Was never really sure about that whole Mad Max look though Steve
