  1. Just be careful on that last day. The M25 round from Brooklands area to Heathrow can be very, very snarled up. It would be easy to spend too long at Brooklands to then be able to make Heathrow for 2:30!
  2. Mosquito and typhoon where begun and then released under the previous, previous management. Not the ones Mr Davies is talking about.
  3. Troy, I've tried messaging you here but to no avail! can you please drop me an email at simon.owen@hornby.com - or PM me on here. We have Airfix matters we would like to discuss with you.



  4. Great little show this, parking is a nightmare, but the show itself is good. Il be there for a wander round
  5. If you are at the Kent Battle of Britain museum and memorial it is but a short trip along to the Hornby Visitor centre, which has a nice group of displays about Airfix. May appeal, may not!
  6. Far south I know, but if you fancy a visit to a proper fairytale English castle then I heartily recommend Bodiam in East Sussex. Not far from Headcorn and also close to Tunbridge Wells, which has the superb Aviation Bookshop. A shop I know you will find both excellent and potentially expensive. and fear not my colonial visitors, they can post stuff back for you at very reasonable rates. They also sell second hand models. 1/72 stuff is always especially cheap.
  7. Fw190 set on the way for me. Well, I need something to put on that Zvezda Fw190 I bought at Telford that I don't need and had no plans to buy yet bought anyway because i'm easily distracted by a sticker that says '£3'
  8. Actually that is not correct. the F51-D boxing contains an extra sprue with the correct propeller + rockets.
  9. But all extra parts and tooling adds to the overall cost. Thus pushing the prices up. You may want a highback, and that is fair enough, but a business case for a low back was obviously deemed to be stronger. Oh and wouldn't a high back need new wings? As they are a C wing... Thus more parts as well. I'm sure somone will provide the kit you need soon enough. Just not in this instance.
  10. Or an attempt to keep costs down by not doing two fuselages plus different cockpit parts. Thus keeping costs down. Or you could be insulting.
  11. Nick is correct. Ford themselves get confused over this at times, but I would refer to as (and do in my 'day job' as a Ford GT MKII. the Chassis number begins GT40 - however this doesn't meal the body and final build was actually a GT40!
  12. That's lovely. But to be pedantic. Revell got the name wrong on the boxtop, its technically not a GT40. But rather a Ford MKII. These featured a larger engine (from a NASCAR Galaxie) and as you can see a completely different rear deck, plus wider track at the rear to accommodate the ZF gearbox and bigger V8 lump. This of course doesn't detract at all from what is a lovely model Simon
  13. It was definitely the Wonder Woman plane. 100%. Though I think they have the drawings.
