  1. Point put well but I have no space or finance for a layout so would like to see static scale loco kits. Cheers, paul
  2. Thanks Scimitar F1, you have got my point, an A4 in 32nd would be awesome. My original thought was that Rail enthusiasts and modelling enthusiasts might welcome detailed kits of locomotives which do not have to run on tracks as the design of locos is interesting in itself. There was obviously a market in the late 50's as the Kitmaster/Airfix kits seem to have sold well as they were still produced many years later. I would love to see a black 5 for example produced as a static kit to 21st century standards. Cheers, Paul
  3. I built the Aeroclub one a few years ago, took a bit of work but very pleased with the result. I would be amazed if anyone else releases one! Cheers, Paul
  4. Hi all, question for railway modellers! I am nearly exclusively an aircraft modeller with some interest in British locos and railways. I 've no interest in creating a working layout but would like to make a few kits of classic locos. Apart from the ancient Airfix loco kits are there any kits out there? Is there a market for static kits? I really dont want to see model trains going round a track but would like to display static models as the design is what interests me. I make model planes mainly but am not interested in flying models, but railway modellers seem to need them to run. Not sure why. Is there a market for good plastic kits of locos? Cheers, paul
  5. Cheers, will wait for the red devil boxing, G-EAVP looks great but eventually crashed killing the pilot and I have a sad superstition not to model aircraft which crashed fatally. I seem to remember that Mike McEvoy of Scale Aircraft Modelling fame has a similar outlook. Cheers, Paul
  6. Superb build and great photography! Inspiring work. Cheers, Paul
  7. A superb rendition of an interesting type, full of character! Plenty of other inter-war types for Avis to tackle though! Vickers Vulcan or DH18 would be good although a lot bigger, Would love to see the Short Mussel, Westland Widgeon, Avro Avian etc! Cheers, Paul
  8. Great shame, I used to stay in Bedford quite often as a base for Old Warden shows and enjoyed nipping into Goldings, lovely old-fashioned shop. Reminded me of another hardware shop in Barnes, South-West London where I used to buy my very first Airfix kits. Cheers, Paul
  9. Very nice build and lovely clear pics! Looking forward to watching your progress on this. Cheers, Paul
  10. Nice, Short Satellite looks like a drop tank! Cheers, Paul
  11. Same for me, looks like a very nice kit! Will really have to start mine, also the Short Cockle! Cheers, Paul
  12. Very nice, as with CT Modeller I keep intending to build the Aeroclub Anson, I have the second release with clear fuselage, but likewise it gets pushed back by other projects. Also have a decal sheet from RAFDec which has a nice 1950's Anson. I have also kept Paul's excellent build article from SAMI. Really must build it! Cheers, Paul
  13. Fabulous resin work so far. This thread will be really valuable especially as Airfix are going to release the Heron again in their Classics series. Cheers, Paul
  14. Nice progress, I built this a few years ago and still has pride of place in my cabinet. A lovely little kit. Cheers, Paul
