    1/48 resin Gannet AEW3

    Thanks for the pic, Nice tail badge that I have never noticed before. Looks like a thin gold-ish? ‘A’ with a feathered Gannet in flight.

    I have alley cat models tanks but they are for ASW/COD Gannets. If we all email CMK, maybe w. e can persuade them to scale up the 1/72 Palouste they make. Want one for either this Gannet or one of the Dynavector Scimitars or Airfix Buck/Vixens in the stash.

    My invoice says 006. I fancy an 849sqdn with black and red bands, need to look at what can be used to make the underwing tanks as these also carried colour bands on the fronts.

    Thanks for the info John certainly fancy one to go with the classic airframe AS.1 I have and I don’t hold much hope for a mainstream kit being released, although there was rumour CA had one in development before they folded.

    Thanks for your service to modelling Jeffrey. i managed to get an early & late A-3 canopy that arrived safely today. Two canopies but only one kit to choose what era....or straight on to eBay to buy a second Skywarrior. Safe move and i will be back to see your new products in the future.
  8. Thanks Giorgio. I asked Special Hobby and they confirmed it isn’t theirs/Tarangus model so it looks like ESCI re-issue.
  9. Mmmmm a Viggen JA-37...is this a collaboration with a Special Hobby/Tarangus to release theirs under Italeri like they have with other kits by Special Hobby.....or is it the old ESCI kit brought out of the dusty vaults, which I didn’t think was a JA-37 but an AJ????

    Skywarrior canopies

    Hello Jeffrey any news on more stock of the bomber Skywarrior canopies and the version ones in development? regards Andy
  11. Thanks for the info jeffery, I will be popping by your stall with my wallet.
  12. Hello Jeffery, i have read read reviews of the Trumpeter kit saying the canopy isn't right for a bomber as it's for a version? But there are so many quotes and descriptions I am still not sure which is which. Do you have a list of which A-3's your canopy is for and which dates or timeline from early to late at all? I have a couple of A-3's in different variants and a few Steel Beach extras for conversions to make an RA-3B and KA-3B, plus the standard A-3B and a TA-3B. Now I also want a full bump ridden EKA-3 too.
  13. Seen this listed at Hannants by Brigade models as BKC48003. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/BKC48003 Anyone know more? Searched the net but all I could find on Brigade models seem to be wargamer stuff and Spitfire conversions.
  14. There's a new book out on the F-84F & RF-84F with lots of colourful markings for inspiration, including a painting of the Danish jet on the new decals. Book review here on BM: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235000019-f-84frf-84f-thunderstreak-thunderflash-new-book/#entry2311977 I hope a decal maker picks up a copy to release some more F-84 sheets. If more references are needed PM me.
