    RAF and RN in 1:48 scale

  1. I know that some manufacturers have produced kits in 1:100 scale but I have never understood why it wasn't more popular - it seems to be an ideal size for larger aircraft compared to 1:72 whilst allowing more detail than 1:144.
  2. Been waiting for the Tempest Weekend editions - "everything comes . . . "
  3. I have the same problem as Tail-Dragon; I have the CA Blenheim IV in my stash, waiting to be built. I also have a couple of Airfix 1:48 Mosquito XIV kits, which have optional blisters - could I use those, with white PVA glue, for my Blenheim?
  4. If you build the SH PR.X it should of course be (high altitude) PRU Blue and NOT (low level) PRU Pink!
  5. Seabirds have dark colours above (protection from predators) and light colours below (invisible to prey) for much the same reasons.
  6. Airfix ought to produce a good kit of every British WW2 bomber in 1:72, but I suspect that the economics would be difficult for most of them. Whitley (Merlin & Tiger) - 1 of 2 so far! Albemarle Manchester Lancaster (Merlin & Hercules) - sorted! Lincoln - wartime development Botha Bombay Blenheim - made a start! Beaufort Brigand - wartime development Mosquito - new tools needed Battle - old and poor Hampden - old and poor Hereford Harrow Halifax (Merlin & Hercules) Stirling - old and poor Wellesley - Matchbox Wellington - started - endless possibilities! Warwick

    I hate photo etch

    You're not the only one - I hate photoetch!
  8. Historically Blenheim IF - first radar equipped nightfighter to shoot down an enemy aircraft.

    P51 Mustang, what if?

    Obvious comment, but - Martin-Baker MB.5 lookalike?
  10. I finally managed to locate the 'donate' button on the Home Page, but it took me a while to find it, as I was looking for a button with the word 'Donate' on it, instead of the blue button in the top right corner with the PayPal logo. Have you considered actually putting the word 'Donate' on the button - it would certainly be easier to find, and might possibly increase the number of donations? Just made a small donation - this is a great forum and thanks to the moderators for all the hours you put in running Britmodeller!
  11. I am waiting (and hoping) for a 1:48 Tempest V Weekend Edition.

    Airfix 2020

    A 1:48 DHC Chipmunk would be good - plenty of options there. Judging by comments on this forum a 1:48 Bristol Beaufort would be a no-brainer! Personally I would really love a 1:48 Brigand though!
