Is this for real! I am definitely up for a few if that is the case.

No, Airfix are just joking with their 2021 range just announced...…….

Thats a shame with all of the work you’ve put into it. 

 

All part of the fun. To be honest, I could have started printing the kits in December, but I held off as I was waiting for the Airfix announcement (on what I beleived was a very slim chance).

 

I think I'm going to order 8! Look at the brilliant colour schemes they offer too (subject to change) :D

@wellsprop just in the offchance they dont include the alternative canopy you may want to print the Canadian bulged option and get ahead of Airfix.

You could always pick it apart and if needed do conversion/detail bits :P

 

You both read my mind... As they say, watch this space ;)

Bravo Airfix, this was one of my predictions last year!!! I hope they include the later exhaust type suitable for the AAC types.

 

Top stuff

I know I replied to this earlier but I am absolutely ecstatic with this!!!   Will have to do all the ones I flew in during  my ATC days having done them all nearly in 1/72nd. Hoping that Modelart who have done a nice decal sheet in 1/72 will do 1/48th ones and extra dayglo strips..            Yeeeeessssssssssssss!

Liking this a lot!    The engine will be nice to display separately too (the other year I was helping a friend set up and run in a modified Gipsy engine in his test cell), as mine will be getting a bigger engine and longer cowl.

A 48th Chipmunk, from Airfix, this is absolutely superb news!

Hopefully they will go their Gnat route and do a 72nd scale version aswel.

 

There will be plenty of "my first flight was in one of those..." buyers for this.

Both rudders, and separate anti-spin strakes I see 👍

 

I hope those seat cushions are separate parts, as in real life, or we'll need to make our own arrangements for in-service RAF examples.

Some RAF Chipmunks were also modified. If this isn't included in the Airfix kit, I will be releasing it as a conversion.

I didn't spot both the rudders and separate spin strakes - glad they are included though!

I'm in for a couple, a representative trainer and a Berlin spy plane me thinks.
