Spit 1 and F-6D appeal, so does the B-26

Aha, Tornado GR.1 in March then. Not long to wait. Helpful that it's been translated as I had no way to do it myself.

 

Cheers,

B-26 for me too please (cost dependent though)

 

Yes, that's got me almost as excited as a certain Beaufort.

 

Price-dependent excitement...

It will be interesting to see what schemes will be done for the Tornado GR.1 as most have already been covered by Xtradecal, Kitsworld, Model Alliance etc. The Eduard F3 boxing almost pretty much copied one of the Xtradecal sheets.... 

 

It's something I'd quite like to pick up if they do a good sheet to go with it

Thanks chaps - will definitely be picking that one up. Some nice additional detail sets too that will compliment my other Desert GR.1 build. Luscious Lizzie, Armoured Charmer or Check Six? Choices choices....

The Spit mk1’s tempting, if they include decals for a what if scheme based on the ordered-but-never-delivered Estonian Spits, I might even splash out on the royal class version. 🙂

The base kit will be reissued this year by Revell so should be available again plenty cheap..

Revell have an Gr.1 in 1/48 ? I know a Gr.4 and German IDS. I think a Revell never released their new 1/48  Tornado as Gr.1.

For the Spitfire Mk I they say in the leaflet :

 

Quote

First, let me invite you to visit our booth in upcoming Nurnberger Toy fair. You can find us in Hall 7 as every year, booth C57. Also, I just remember our Press con-ference in Room Stockholm, NCC Ost, on Friday, January 31st, 2020, in 14:00. Our Nurnberger booth will be dedicated to the Spitfire Mk.I and Battle of Britain this year, to remember the new Spitfire Mk.I in 1/48th scale, prepared to be released in second half of 2020

The IDS kit has all the parts to make a GR.1, minus the hindenburger tanks

Agreed... All boxes are similar enough except few detail parts. You can easily make a Gr.1 out of a Gr.4 box

Do either the Revell 1/48 GR.4 or IDS kits have the British style under fuselage pylons?    Or any aftermarket sources?

@Shaun May be able to help you here.

The GR.4 has the British pylons, the IDS does not.

Spitfire Mk.I? If it has moveable/posable rudder and tailplanes that will stop me looking for Tamiya’s kit cheap. I have an Airfix Mk.I but they seem impossible to get now. You can never have too many Pit Mk.Is!

 

And the Lysander!! Is the Gavia kit any good? If so that’s more wallet hammering!

I've got one in stash and it looks straight forward, but the engine has separate piston blocks. I don't have a problem with the engine though I do have one niggling gripe- no glazed panels n the fuselage in front of the tail section🙄.

 

That said 613 Sqn markings in the RAF versions were a deal breaker🤗

One entertaining quirk of Revell's GR4 is it has the IDS plastic cockpit parts and GR4 cockpit decals...

But incorrect outer wing pylons, only the IDS style in all kits.
