I want one!! Maybe we might get a sea Venom next year?

Just as long as Trumpeter get the shape right unlike their Vampire otherwise be careful what you wish for.

The FB.2 was the one used by the Pakistan Navy, right?

I was pretty certain that Trumpeter wouldn't miss that.

Until now...

Pakistan only used the de-navalised FB.2, (for a short time), but lots were used by the FAA, RNVR and FRU.

Yes.

But all the latters looks the same to me, Pak navy would have added a nice little touch of colour with different roundels.

I'll have to wait for some aftermarket.

Ah, now I understand! There was a manufacturer who produced generic national marking sheets a few years ago, IIRC Brightspark, and they printed a sheet with Pakistani insignia. Perhaps one of the generic alpha/numeric sheets, say from Xtradecal, etc., would harvest the right combination for the serial number?

The Classic Airframes one came with Pakistani markings, I'm sure there must be someone out there who has the kit and didn't/doesn't intend to use them. I'll check to see if I still have a set. Or alternately:

Thanks, but do not bother about me, I can wait for some AM decals, or use my own spares.

If Trumpeter was to attempt a Sea Venom and had the balls to do it properly then I would have no problem turning over my collection of manuals photos and allow total access to our airframes to them.

Given their previous I wont be holding my breath.

Same offer to you Airfix.

Having spoken to the designer of their forthcoming Spitfire MkVb at Yeovilton last week, I think they'd be more likely to take up your offer than Trumpeter!

The offer stands, if any manufacturer wants to do a decent 1/48th Sea Venom then my collection is at your disposal.

The same goes for anything else I have.
