    DeHavilland Sea Vixen FAW2. 1:48

    Unfortunately I bought one not long ago and was not impressed at all but I though the booms were to long as well as incorrect detail on them. I only compared them to the 1/48 airfix kit.

    Sea Vixen

    I have been silly and bought one of these and without looking closely at it. I have found out that the ends of the booms are quite a different angle to the airfix sea vixen and the length is a good 2 scale feet longer. I have put it back in the box and so don't know what else is up the creek with it. Not to pleased with it.

    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    What ever scale it is I hope it is better than that thing they call a Sea Vixen, if the Airfix Vixen is correct the Trumpeter one is badly incorrect around the rear of the booms and appears to be 2 scale feet to long as well as other faults in the area

    Airfix 1/48 P-51D - not that impressed

    They look to me to have have gone out of thier way to be different for no real reason. Why they did not do as Revell and Tamiya with different tail planes, it would have been easier and simpler to build. As it is now I have built two up to the painting stage and both the have a lean to the right at the top of the fin, and the horizontal surfaces are in the same direction . Twisting the rear of the tail in front of the horiziontal surfaces effect the desired result. Also if the mould joint line not removed where the horizintal surfaces socket in the the tail plane will not fit. There are other areas of bad fit, also why Airfix put all the heavy rivets on what should be a filled finished wing?

    Over time I have had alot from them mainly from Ebay but some from the website. Early in Dec I ordered off the site and was told the item was sent out for delivery. Unfortunatly it was not delivered and I wrote to them twice with no reply at all. Lodged a claim with Paypal and had the money returned early this week. This appears to be par for the course with them as a friend also had the same happen and he has been barred completely from any trade with them. It is an odd way to conduct a business if you want to retain or build a customer base.

    Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG1

    The Phantom that Jadlam has for sale on Ebay is a FG1 not an FGR1 and it is a pre order which will be avalable in the new year if you scroll down to bottom of the ad. When I last looked there had been 10+ sold!

    New airfix 1/48 Mustang,

    The above are in the current kit and so are 2 different wheel types diamond and smooth.
  13. The Hasegawa 1/48 P-51 was issued as a fillet less variant as was the 1/32 Dragon complete with Hurry Home Honey decals but I suppose that is unbuildable? I see no reason in the world why aifix would want to rip off some other manufactures kit.

    It probably would have been clearer, but you seem to have got the idea OK! I just hope they catch the cheeky toe rag quickly.

    Airfix price increase

    Instead of increasing prices which they did not so long ago, they need to get products to the market place in a timely manner so that it is delivered on the prescribed date, not keeping the consumer waiting months and loosing customers due to loss of interest. Other companies like Hasegawa can do it so I see little reason why Airfix can't, it all gives one the feeling of disorganisation. I am waiting with cash in hand for the 1/48 P-51 but I have no doubt the price will now rise and it makes me wonder about waiting a bit longer for the Eduard one inistead.
