  1. 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.

  2. This is my third Roden Britannia and will not be the last. Thanks to Ray at 26 decals many more will be possible . Given its scale of 1/144th , it is just the right size for a multiple collection. Thanks for looking. Keith.
  3. Hello All, I am posting this here on the assumption that some of you might not read the civil postings. I am considering converting a 1/72 Britannia to a CC-106 Yukon (aka CL-44-6), but I’m not sure how the 12’-4” stretch in length is split fore and aft of the wing. If there are any ex RCAF britmodellers who can help, I would greatly appreciate any input you care to provide. regards, TW
  4. My contribution is hopefully going to be the Roden Britannia in the livery of Donaldson International, an Anglo-Scottish charter airline which operated a clutch of second-hand Britannias between 1967 and 1972. Although I’ve never built the kit before, several Britmodellers have posted beautiful Roden Britannias in RFI giving me a lot to live up to. The Boscombe Down machine also featured in the Made in Britain GB although I’m not sure if that model was ever finished. Here’s the raw material …. http://SAM_2014 by David Griffiths, on Flickr http://SAM_2015 by
  5. RAF Britannia C1 XM496 'Regulus' 26 Models kit, 1/144. The bus is an Oxford diecasts 'N' gauge model. Since seeing Ian Turbofan's and Dave Skoadriver's lovely Roden Britannias, I thought I must get one. Well here we are! This is from Ray at 26 decals, who sells several versions of the Roden kit with various option of his own decal sheets, all a bargain price. Rather than a civvy scheme I opted for this RAF version as I have happy memories of seeing them at Brize Norton in the 70's on several trips with the Air Cadets. As Ian and Dave pointed out,

  7. Roden has just released a 1/144th Bristol 175 Britannia kit - ref.312 Source: http://www.roden.eu/HTML/312.htm Available here: http://rodenkits.com/catalogue/RODEN-312-Bristol-175-Britannia V.P.
  8. I am planning a future project to build a diorama in 1:144 scale of the scene below. It is of the dispersal area at Kuching Airport in the 1960's and the scene of a lot of military and civil air activity during the Borneo Confrontation. I served in Borneo in the latter part of the conflict, 1966-67, and this photograph epitomises the busy scenes around the air base. All of the aircraft visible in this scene are available in 1:144 scale and I am slowly acquiring them for my build; however, I am not certain if there is a set of decals available for a British United live
  9. There haven’t been many airliners in RFI recently probably because most of the usual suspects, including me, have been working on the Airliner III Group Build. To keep the airliner flag flying here are some pictures of my group build entry, the Roden Britannia in the attractive livery of Donaldson International, an Anglo-Scottish charter airline which operated a clutch of second-hand Britannias in the late 1960s. Decals are by 26. Thanks for looking and the build thread is here if anyone wants to follow i
  10. As a change from my usual glacially slow output of Phantoms and big Soviet interceptors, i'm going with this from my xmas box - http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y164/BLUEX5/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_1997_zpsez6gwjns.jpg~original http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y164/BLUEX5/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_1998_zpstensikjo.jpg~original Plan is to build the Boscombe Down aircraft using 26Decals sheet. Despite the minimal locating lugs the plastic looks fairly decent. I wanted to do a Lightning but i have a queue of 1/48 things awaiting paint and i'd like to do something i might finish in the group build pe
  11. Gentlemen & Fellow Modellers, I am pleased to announce that the Roden Bristol Britannia in Monarch Airlines livery has now been released. for illustrations of this super model please go to http://www.frogmodelaircraft.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=305 I can also confirm that the VC10 will be released before Christmas. The first version will have decals for a East African & BOAC aircraft with a Tanker version to follow. Roden do listen to the modeller and I can assure you all that some very exciting releases are in the pipe line, please keep your suggestions coming and I will
  12. Bristol 175 Britannia Roden 1:144 The Bristol Type 175 project, the initial programme name which eventually matured into the famous Bristol Britannia, came about from two different post-war requirements: first, an earlier design specification from the Brabazon Committee, which embodied lessons learned from the Brabazon project; second, an urgent need from BOAC in 1946 for a Medium Range Empire (MRE) passenger transport aircraft. BOAC had been looking at purchasing the new and very efficient Lockheed Constellation however, in the austere immediate
  13. 1/144 Bristol Britannia, F-RSIN British Eagle This is another 'nostalgia build' of my memories of Heathrow in the 1960's. I remember seeing these as a kid, looking lovely on the ramp. British Eagle used them on a trooping flight contract to Germany, so anf ex Army guys might well remember them. They were also used on regular passenger flights and ranged far and wide. It was agreat shame when Eagle went out of business. This is the F-RSIN kit, a short run plastic injection moulding and one of the many great subjects they do. It is not a 'shake and bake' kit but builds up very nicely and
