  1. Trumpeter were supposed to be releasing a 1/32 Jaguar a few years back and if i recall correctly, the lead designer left them and it was cancelled. That may be why the 1/32 Jag Decals were issued. There is a thread here: Trumpeter 1/32 Jaguar GR.1 - Cold War - Britmodeller.com
  2. Hope they do a 1/32 Hurricane which isn’t multi media can’t believe we still only have the old Revell kit as the only injection moulded option
  3. https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/airfix-172-vulcan-b2/ Says Available on 14th June
  4. That’s a cracker, Chris, really impressed mate must build my one soon cheers Rich
  5. Latest Issue of AMW Not sure about getting it, but its definitely available digitally
  6. Its Getting close - A build review in Airfix Model World, Looks Fab
  7. Hope its a Hurricane (a good 1/32 Kit that is not multimedia is long overdue) If Tamiya have visited Wings Of Canada they have 2 to base their kit on.
  8. If its Vintage Wings - a P40N http://www.vintagewings.ca/Aircraft/tabid/66/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/12/The-WC-Stocky-Edwards-Curtiss-P40-N-Kittyhawk.aspx
  9. The AMW blurb states that a new issue of the Mk22/24 Spitfire was included, maybe it has been missed on the site or held back ?
  10. So that’s 2021 sorted Just need a 2022 thread to be started
  11. Intrigued by the Asian text in the bottom left hand CAD image I assume this means that the design wasn’t done by Airfix
  12. FROM AIRFIX MODELLING WORLD FEB 2021: MODELLING AS a hobby appears to have undergone a renaissance last year, and if Airfix’s release schedule for 2021 is anything to go by, it will continue to strengthen. Although purely coincidental, there’s a rich de Havilland theme running through the firm’s new toolings, with fighters, bombers and trainers all on offer, while the first quarter will also see the arrival of several products delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The release highlight is arguably a dead heat between a Series 4 1/72 Mosquito B.XVI (A04023) – the first time Airfix has produced a two-stage Merlin-powered ‘Mossie’ in this scale – and a Series 8 1/48 Vampire F.3 (A08110), which will come with markings for British, Canadian and Norwegian aircraft. Completing the de Havilland theme is a Series 4 1/48 Chipmunk T.10 (A04105) expected in early 2021, that will feature markings for four Royal Air Force, Royal Navy and British Army machines. Moving on to a different aircraft manufacturer, there will be a newly tooled Series 2 1/72 Hawker Tempest V (A021090) and this will include two late-war liveries, including an airframe painted with D-Day identification stripes. Having delighted modellers with its newly tooled 1/35 Cromwell tank in 2020, Airfix has made a bold decision to issue an Austin K4 Ambulance (A1375), the first time this type has been the subject of a mainstream styrene release in this scale .Airfix’s all-new Beginner Sets will now be released in early 2021. As the name implies, these are simplified ‘snap-together’ versions of ‘standard’ kits and are aimed at those just entering the hobby. There will be four subjects available: Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vc (A55001), Red Arrows Hawk (A55002), Sherman Firefly (A55003) and Tiger I (A55004).There’s also a rich vein of re-releases on the way. Vickers’ Valiant returns as a B(PR)/K.1 bomber/photographic reconnaissance variant (A11001A), with the markings including an option for an Operation Grapple (H-bomb testing) airframe. It is joined by a 1/72 B-17G Flying Fortress (A08017B), sporting two choices of nose-art adorned bombers, while the Vickers Wellington is back as a Merlin-engined Mk.II (A08021). Smaller offerings will include a 1/72 MiG-17 in East German colours (A03092), a Spitfire F.22 (A02033A) and a Ju 87B-1 Stuka with markings for Balkans Theatre machines (A03087), while fans of airliners have a 1/144 Concorde in its final flight livery (A50189) to savour. With a back catalogue as extensive as Airfix’s it is perhaps no surprise that the Vintage Classics range has seen considerable expansion each year and 2021 is no different. Notable aircraft releases include the Handley Page HP.42 Heracles and Hawker Siddeley Trident airliners in 1/144, along with the 1965-vintage 1/72 Aichi D3A1 ‘Val’ Model 11 dive-bomber. The 1/32 Beach Buggy is also welcomed back after a long absence and, being one of those ‘fun’ DE HAVILLAND DELIGHTS!6Airfix Model World offer, while the first quarter will also see the arrival of several products delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

From a diorama or wargaming perspective, arguably the most popular addition this year will be the return of Airfix’s 1/32 military figures, with boxings of British, American and German infantry and paratroopers. One aspect that has changed with these sets is the styrene, as the previous ‘soft’ formulation has been replaced with a type more conducive to being painted. Further details are available in the catalogue, which retails for £8.99, and on the Airfix website: www.airfix.com
  13. I see that the K2 Ambulance images have ‘Asian’ text in the bottom left hand corner maybe a collaboration with Academy or Thunder Models?
  14. Very happy with the results Think there are a few errors in the details such as prices and info in places but at least the site hasn’t crashed
