He has been asked to do a Whirlwind rotary, but if tempted, it would be a Turbine. I did suggest tooling for an alternative nose, but that puts the cost up.

At the mention of the Scout and Wasp, there were 3 advance orders for a big Scout, Julien, Bish and I all said yes immediately! He's got enough work for two years already, so anything else will be a while yet.

Excellent news, I'm sure a turbine Whirlwind will sell in spades, still plenty of schemes.

Will definitely buy at least three Wasps before that.

To my credit card's dismay, I predict a hive of wasps will be appearing in my stash (a more acceptable version than the little swine dealt with by Rentokil's GBAD), along with more than a few Scouts. And a turbine Whirlwind? Not good for a chap's bank account at all...

Looks like I'm going to be spending even more of my time  in the museum at Middle Wallop researching detail

We could do with some pics for the walkaround section if you can get any.

Another hand up here for at least a pair of Wasps and maybe a Scout too if there's a RM marking option. What with this and the forthcoming Canberra, Mel has, I'm sure made a lot of us very happy.

I'm only sorry that I hesitated and missed out on the Hastings!

I was thinking more along the lines of taking a scanner to the AP but as the museum has three Scouts on display and the HAF have a flyer, photos shouldn't be a problem.

Well I'm definitely good for a Wasp, in RNZN scheme & a Turbine Whirlwind too, I've a photo saved somewhere of one in Malaya during the "emergency" with a Kiwi zap on, probably working with Kiwi troops.

I'd take a 1/72 Scout in RAN colours. And a radial engine Whirlwind in 1/72 would be my preference.

? Radial, not rotary? A rotary-powered Whirlwind would be an amazing sight though!

Well I might say stuff the Air Fixed procrastination and the Freighted dog going astray - I'll be in for the proverbial truck load of these if they are half decent!

 

My favourite whirly bird of all time - even beats the Sea King...

 

I have 6 AS-12 missiles from CMK in the stash if non are provided to spice them up  - just hope S&M provide the rails and supports...

 

Go you good thing S&M !

Was thinking the same thing! Loved that movie! Even with the cheesy acting.

Mel might look into a turbine Whirlwind, but that would be 2 to 3 years away. He did consider a Belvedere, but says economically, it's a non starter.
