I'd say good news. This is Eastern Express we're talking about so they will be expensive and not the easiest kits to build. If they were being produced by Revell or Zvezda this would be GREAT NEWS!!!

I thought you were talking about F-RSIN for a moment there.

At least we may get a reasonably good injection moulded kit from EE.

I'm sure they waited until I'd almost finished the F-RSIN thing before they announced this. :shrug:

Great.  I definitely 'need' a Trident with the Speedjack scheme.

With only nine days left of 2018, I think they're being quite optimistic!!

 

Still looks quite decent.

Anyone know if they’ve been released? Wouldn’t mind one and a 1-11 they said they’re releasing

They'll be pricey though judging by the almost £50 for the forthcoming 1/144 Viscounts. A long way from the few bob for their ex Frog stuff.

The nose gear on the box art looks like it hammered an armored gerbil on the runway.

The Viscount 700 kit has been out for sometime:

I just bought two books on the Trident after seeing the one at Duxford, because I thought it was so beautiful. This is dangerous news for Edward.

CADs look great, looks like they've taken into account the mid span camber change issue that Airfix didn't back in the day

Like VC-10, the Trident has some very subtle lines and features which if not depicted correctly could result in a bad looking kit.

 

If these are nicely done I will buy multiples of them!

Slightly off topic, will you be offering them with alternate decals? 

Please say "Yes"!!! 🤞
