    Airfix product announcement at Telford 2018

    Royal Collection of four 1/24 Defiants! Oh yes

    What are you reading?

    Agreed. I've just finished Snuff, which has been in my book stash for ages but criminally overlooked! An excellent read, of course, in which Sam Vimes leaves his comfort zone of Ankh Morpork to visit his wife's country estate. Sam is not accustomed to the country with its strange sounds and creatures. Marvellous!

    Airfix product announcement at Telford 2018

    My two pennorth, a BIG new tooling announcement can only mean one thing - 1/24 Defiant. Why not, they've produced one in 1/72 and 1/48, so 1/24 is a logical progression. Just let Airfix prove me wrong!
  4. I wonder how many Airfix will produce for the first run? I'll lay odds they sell out very quickly! I think I may have to pre-order one
  5. I'm pretty sure it was 7/6d, big money in those days!

    What new stuff have you bought/been gifted?

    Panda Models 1/35 Kurganets-25 Object 693. Well, it was on special offer from the big H, so it would have been rude to pass it up. Besides, I do like Russian armour. Oh, and some paints as they always come in handy.
  7. Email from WNW says they will be at Telford and will have Lancaster test shots on display. Should be worth seeing! As regards price, WNW say the following: Price is still to be confirmed, but we are doing what we can to keep it as low as possible and hope it will only be slightly more than 32801 Felixstowe F.2a & Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 "The Duellists". The WNW website shows this set at $349, slightly more than that still sounds pretty reasonable to me.

    Airfix product announcement at Telford 2018

    Never mind that overdone Battle of Britain stuff, it will either be a new mould, 1/48 Hampden or an upscaled to 1/48 Whitley for the Battle of the Barges!

    British 7.2inch Howitzer (35211) 1:35

    Looks very good. Of course what it does need is a crew with a 1/35 Spike Milligan figure!
  11. Hmm, if he gets his finger out there could be a tie in for the release of the model and the film. Not holding my breath, though.

    I can't stand Bono's voice either, but living in Barnsley I don't have to hide it Possibly, possibly not, which joke are you referring to?

    Curved Air were one of my favourite bands back in the day, saw them perform several times at Sheffield City Hall. I think we're going to have to agree to disagree about the lovely Sonja's vocals, though and she's still an amazing performer (I wish I was aging as well!) Sadly I cannot claim her as a friend

    Wot, no Curved Air? Shameful! Yes, our representatives whatever parliament do like the sound of their own voices and their opinions being broadcast, don't they. And the endearing (?) thing is, they don't seem to mind sounding like idiots! Bless!
