Hi BM'ers! I've been a little lacking in posts over here in recent years - bit tied up with moderating in another place that focuses on Large Scale Planes. However, I've recently acquired a copy of the 1:32 Hawker Siddeley Andover from Toshihiko of One Man Model in Japan and thought, being a British type, I really ought to share here too... Very occasionally you log on to the Interweb and spot something that immediatedly shouts 'what the...' Well, this was one of those moments. And it proceeded to create a 'disturbance in the force' - or at least my model building plans. Forum member Anthony Galbraith had spotted that Toshihiko, of 'One Man Model', was drawing up the Hawker Siddeley HS780 Andover C.Mk 1 with a view to 3D printing in 1:72 and 1:48 scales. Anthony asked if this could be printed in 1:32 and the intial answer was a no. However, a few weeks later the answer came back as a yes - and Anthony posted on the LSP forums asking if anyone else would be interested in a 1:32 print of the Andover. Two immediate positive responses - and a slightly delayed yes from me - subsequently followed up by a fifth - and the project was on! Oh, and beware, it's a fair size - here are the fuselage parts, taped together, compared to HK Models 1:32 B-17: I put together a review here. Plan is to build mine as a 115 Sqn E.Mk 3 from the mid/late '80s as we used to see them a lot in the skies over Oxfordshire. Back in a mo... Iain

Does anyone know the fuselage diameters for the Herald and the Andover/HS748? I just had one of those ideas for taking the rear fuselage off the Welsh Models Andover and putting it on the Welsh Models Herald, with no doubt some other modifications to the tail feathers. I know the Herald had a wider fuselage than the Friendship, and I suspect that the HS748's was also narrower, but would that be sufficient to be seen (or to make x-kitting unworkable) in 1/144? After all, the Herald was the favoured choice for the job on technical/operational grounds, but (as always) other features came into play. I suspect that my model shelf, like the RAF, is not going to get its military Herald, but I thought it worth at least posing the question.
