Recommended Posts

Firstly thanks to Mike for giving me access to the Manufacturers News section. New and re-issued items for Telford, mostly packed up and ready to go, all 1/72 unless otherwise stated;

 

Complete kits;

Supermarine Seafire Mk.Ib (cooperation with Kovozavody Prostejov - HQT plastic and resin parts)

Saro SR.177 RAF boxing (complete resin kit, revised parts and new RAF decals)

Supermarine 327 'Shrew' (complete resin kit, re-stocked)

Avro 720 (complete resin kit, re-issue)

 

Conversions;

Avro Lancaster ASR.III/GR.3 with Airborne Lifeboat Mk.IIA (resin with clear vacform)

Phantom FGR.2 Redtop missiles and pylons (proposed fit instead of Sidewinders)

Canberra B.(I)8 weapons set (accurate gun pack, wing pylons and training bombs, for FROG kit also applicable to B.6 kits) 

 

Sharing my stand,  Combat Kits (all resin) new releases will be;

 

Blackburn Firebrand TF.II 1/48 

Blackburn Firebrand TF/5 1/48

Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer CC.1/2 1/72

Scottish Aviation Pioneer CC.1 1/72

Avro Lancastrian Nene testbed 1/72 (conversion set)

Rushton Target set 1/72 (conversion set)

 

I'm happy to take pre-orders, but also not very organised, so pick them up Saturday morning if you can! Any questions please let me now.  I will have lots of restocked Freightdog resin sets to. 

 

Thanks,

 

Colin

Hi Colin, not sure if you speak for Combat Kits, but is there a chance they'll offer the Lancastrian conversion for the airliner version? I'm not up to speed on the differences between this and the Nene version so they may be very similar but the Blackbirds effort seems to be nonexistent and from what I've heard, it's better than the M+E kit from years ago but still not perfect.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

 

I think can speak for Dave from Combat Kits as he is not on the forum. There will probably be three versions, Nene, airline and military transport. Decals are not included in this set (as its just roundels and codes that can easily be found) but the other versions will have decals, or Combat may do a stand alone Lancastrian sheet will follow that will apply to all three versions. It really depends how well the Nene set sells. Its as great conversion, researched and mastered by Paul Lucas, same as my ASR.III set.

@Colin @ Freightdog Models Pls pass on my best to the guys at Combat, I could not decide on the Pioneer or the twin at  Telford so I ended up with both !

I will beat Colin to the draw and say it was at Telford and looked very nice. I would have bought one, if I was not in the middle of building the original issue. The parts look cleaner and the canopies are beautifully clear with the frame lines on the outside unlike mine where they on the inside of the canopy, which is not going to help masking.

Are you going to re release the SR.177? I live in the states. Would love to get one!😎

 

Hi Mike, sorry for late reply. I don't have any current stockist in the US but I am more than happy to post items there. Postage charge for one SR.177 kit is £8.50.
