I have a few of my Halifax upgrade sets left (but does not cover the 4 blade props), pm if of interest.

 

Thanks,

Hello, I've sent you a PM about these. Would dearly like to get my mitts on a set suitable for the B.II Srs1.

The first option is getting your hands on an Aeroclub correction set. This includes injection molded replacement nacelles. But I believe this set is no longer available.

 

The second option is using the Freightdog resin sets - which improve the look somewhat but don't reduce the size of the nacelles. Don't know about the availability of the set - might have sold out.

Build 2 https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235021965-halifax-b-mk-iiigrii-revell-172/page/16/

The third option is doing what Brett Green did, which using the Matchbox parts to improve the Revell nacelles. Someone here even used the Revell nacelle intake lips on the Matchbox parts if I recall correctly.

Here's Brett Green's build: http://www.hyperscale.com/2012/galleries/halifaxbmkiiseries172bg_1.htm

And this that build with completely reshaping the nacelle air intakes:

 

The fourth option is to live with Revell's mistake.

 

 

 

Thanks very much- have had a good look through, and my thoughts are that, in default of the Aeroclub set's availability, to use a replacement radiator in front of thinned-down nacelles.
