  1. Congratulations Alan, I'm very happy you got the numbers of orders to go ahead with production. All we need now is for the 1/144 Belfast & SC.45 to be manufactured.. It was a pleasure meeting & talking with you at ModelWorld...
  2. New in the pipeline from Aircraft in Miniature is a full weapon load of 8 x 1000lb bombs with proximity fuzes and Twin Store Carriers for the Tornado GR.1 in the first Gulf war. After having served in the Gulf on XV Sqn Tornado's I had always wanted to build a Snoopy Airways aircraft with an accurate weapons load of 8 x 1000lb 960 fuzed bombs with nose proximity sensors, but nobody has produced any, until now! I've been working with Neil Gaunt of AIM and to design accurate versions and he has produced the following CAD drawings of the pending release of the bombs and twin store carrier. Please be advised that these are preliminary images and there will be a few further tweeks before being released. They will be available in a set of 4 x TSC's and 8 x 1000lb bombs, depicting the typical load carried by the Tornado and will be available in both 1/48 and 1/72 scale XVTonker
  3. Hi Adam, I have produced artwork for the anti flash roundels & fin flashes & have an Oki MD5000 (Alps DP 5000) micro dry printer so I can print white. If you're interested in me printing some decals for you drop me a PM to discuss. XVTonker
  4. From what I can remember it was identified as a structural failure due to fatigue cracking on the wingfold locking pins.
  5. Great info John, many thanks XVTonker
  6. Sorry John the camouflaged versions. One of the tooms I'm building is XV422 when she was part of 31 Sqn back in 1975/76. I was on 31 Sqn then and ironically, I was the line controller on 14 Sqn when XV422 shot down one of our Jags in 1982!!!!! John aka XVTonker
  7. Brilliant, many thanks XVTonker
  8. Bit of a long shot but I'm drawing some decals for my 1/48 FGR.2 Phantoms and am trying to locate any publications/drawings that give details of the stencilling around the airframe. I've got the AirDoc stencil set, but the stencilling is a bit obscure for my liking.. Thanks for looking XVTonker
  9. Great reference material John, particularly the elusive wing fold assemblies. Does the AP include a similar picture for the outboard wing section? Bit of a personal hit this one, I was part of the 431MU work team that had to go through the job of taking the wings off a Bucc at RAF Laarbruch to ship it back to the UK for examination after the loss of the one on Red Flag where the wing broke away at very low level.... Thanks XVTonker
  10. Looking good Neil, This is going to be an amazing conversion for a long neglected aircraft!!! XVTonker

    All sorted. Turns out that Paul wasn't aware that there was a problem with the website, so hopefully everything will be back up and running in the not too distant future. XVTonker

    I'm trying to purchase some of PG Models vehicles. I set up an account, but there doesn't appear to be anyway of paying for them. I've tried to contact them via their website, but haven't received any response. Does anyone know if they're still trading? Thanks XVTonker
  14. Thanks for the info Tommo Now that's a thought for a diorama addition, a transporter AND dolly... XVTonker.
