I have just received AIMS excellent CP-107 Argus resin conversion for the Mach II Britannia (a truly ghastly kit!). The conversion is beautifully done in resin and metal and should be spectacular when complete. I find, however, that I am terribly short on reference material for the Argus. Would anyone have any good 3 or 5 view drawings of the Argus that they could share? What I'm in need of is details (panel lines, door, bomb bay locations, etc.) for rescribing the Mach II components. (center fuselage, wings and tail). This looks like a good winter project, and I'd like to do it justice
It's reported that a company is working on a injected 1/72nd Bristol 175 Britannia kit. Official announcement is expected in about 45 days. Considering this rumour is coming from the French forum Master194 I fear a Mach2 kit. A Bristol Britannia would be logical follow-up to the A.W. Argosy (link) and the Avro York (link). Wait and see.

I thought I'd share and older build with everyone It's a CP-107 Argus in 1/72. As most will know this never existed as a kit, although I have heard Frog made one and Welsh models has a 1/144 one still available. I made this back in about 2002. At that time I only saw one of these in person (#715)and it was cut up already sitting at the Gimili airport (one hour north of Winnipeg, former RCAF base) belonging to the Western Canada Aviation Museum. They had bought it from a Saskatchewan scrap metal dealer (It was flown there sometime after retirement) It was hauled in sections from there to Gimil
Hi everyone, This is my new model – little and yellow-wing Fairchild 24 in service with US Coast Guard where it was designated as J2K-2. In fact the kit allows to reproduce only Fairchild 24 as restored nowadays and painted in USGC colours. Original USCG’s J2K-2 had several variations not reproduced in the kit: different engine cowling, smaller tail, wider undercarriage struts (the pair that joins wheels and fuselage), rear windows were installed upside down. The kit by Legato is fairly good for a short-run. I assembled it almost OOB. Major scratchbuild being rotating propeller. Fit is reas
