100th Airfix Workbench - What Announcement can we expect?

Recommended Posts

Its the 100th Airfix Workbench approching, the last one was no 98 and the 100th is due on the 24th May

 

Airfix announced the Wellington as a new tool on the 50th issue, so there is a good chance a new tool announcement will happen

 

So what could we expect as a suitable choice, for such a prestigious event?

 

I will kick the ball off with:

 

1/72 Mosquito

1/48 Sea King

1/48 Lancaster

1/48 Harrier

1/72 Vulcan

 

(please keep this to product suggestions, not about quality, panel lines, or Airfix/Hornby business :yawn:)

I'll be very happy if they announce they'll be using a real writer rather than the present incumbent!

No offence but,why should we expect anything?. What I expect is that there will now be a buzz, nay a frenzy of fevered and baseless speculation followed by howls of outrage and disappointment  that no "big announcement" was made on the date even though there was never going to be any such announcement !:whistle:🤣

As I am currently working on Kitty Hawk's Jaguar which would be a clear indication that a better kit of this aircraft in 1/48 is on the horizon.  At some point I think they will need to produce a 1/48 F-35B as they will be in UK service for many years to come.  The fact that others make this same kit should not deter them as they have their own robust distributIon network.  They are also due for a re-pop of the TSR-2 (which is in my stash waiting).

1/72 Scimitar, no collection is complete without one, they'd fairly fly off the shelves. I'd be up for at least 1 or 2. ;) :D

No reason to assume there is going to be one, though given they have already done an sneak peak of the 2019 new tools I suspect there might be a sneak peak the first of next decades new tools.......

I don't think there will be any announcement until after the release of the Hellcat: the big subject for 2019.

And what about an accurate 1/72 scale P-51B? Ok, we leave that one to Arma Hobby...

1/72 prentice anyone (as a I saw the skybirds 86 kit go for £120!!!! the other week..) but more likely a Mossie or Lysander (though now Dora are doing one...?) they do have a relationship with ARCO.... or a Battle maybe...

We must be due for a 1/48 Hampden, surely?  Would be very welcome here, anyway!

Assuming that there is an announcement (as others have said, by no means a certainty), would it be too much to ask for a one-hole Vampire or even, dare I say it, a Venom?

Obviously,  it's going to be a 1/24th scale Avro Vulcan. 😜

Probably. You could also add a Beaufort in either of the two popular scales, however I doubt these are even on the far sighted radar at Planet Hornby. I’m afraid I’m in the camp of ‘no announcement’ for the 100th edition of workbench however they may have a bunch of new boxart to show. 

 

One can hope, but don’t raise your hopes too high. 

 

Cheers.. Dave

I'd even (maybe) sacrifice my Scimitar for this, then again, maybe not. :unsure:

One of each please. :)

Blimey how many Airfix suggestion topics do we continue to have!

 

I think we should have the Mods open a permanent Airfix Suggestions Thread and notify AIRFIX at the same time 💋❤️💘

 

1/72 Westland Wasp is my number 1 choice 💋💋💋

If, at some point a re-pop of the TSR 2 was considered, I'd suggest perhaps a complete retool of the 1/72 kit in order to produce the TSR 2 AFTP (Actually Fits Together Properly) version?:whistle:

This is not so much a suggestions topic as a baseless and unfounded pure speculation topic!!:whistle:
