Shagbat was rubbish, four too many rivets on the inner undercarriage door.  Totally unbuildable.

.....and you can’t make a Mk.II because the fuselage was wooden! I confidently predict Airfix will took a whole new fuselage for that version..........

But they could make a Mk 1 Truffle sniffer variant complete with racks for attaching pigs.  Thats the one that  had Space Hoppers under the fuselage centreline and Pogo-sticks under the wing rather than a standard undercarriage to help land in dug over muddy woodland areas.  Negating the issue surrounding the rivets.

And in some weird unnatural scale.

Just a little sanding puts that right.

Don't bring commonsense into the matter. You should know better than that.

ps - While on the Moonraker/ space sort of theme, how about Airfix reissue the Saturn V/Saturn 1B. After all, next year IS the 50th anniversary of the moon landing!

pps - Yes, this is a desperate attempt to get back ON topic!:lol:

Just a passing thought. Was the Vulcan used in the film not a B1A?. Like the idea of the B-17!

Believe you are correct Sir! We need some new Vulcans from Airfix. We could wait for the gift set.

As you say, amazing.

 

I hope Airfix don't base any new spitfire on the one at the concert!

 

It was an unexpected moment when Bruce paid tribute to the women pilots who delivered planes during the war, as well as the pilots, some of whom Bruce said were just a third of his age (he's 60) when they flew in the war.

I believe Felix Leiter flew a Bell 47 at one point in Thunderball...there's something Airfix has never kitted that could do well! 😁

Cool! We'll wait for the Bell 47 and throw that in the gift set too.

A new tool Vulcan would be more than welcome, especially if it included an option to make a B.1, or a B.1A. Or at least with alternative jet pipes for Olympus 201s and 301s.

 

And an HS748. Oh and an Andover E.3 please.

Am I correct in thinking that Alan Hall did one of his splendid conversions to this variant in the original Airfix Magazine back in the late 60s/early 70s?

I can remember Alan W Hall doing a Hercules variant of the skyhook.

Sorry for wandering off topic but for me Skyhook is that wheeze Vosper Thorneycroft had for VTOL  aircraft to hover alongside a ship and be plucked onboard by a kind of glorified cherry picker arm.  So the idea of a Skyhook B-17 or Hercules was rather boggling the mind.
