1/72 New Tool Dominie, HS.125-400, and -125 series 1, 3


Recommended Posts

All: I met with Milan, Sword's boss, at Moson at the end of April, who told me he is actively researching the Dominie T.1 and HS.125-400 for future projects.  Don't throw away your Airfix Classics yet, though!  I strongly encouraged him to proceed with both aircraft models, and he cautioned that it depended on the economic situation.  I also suggested that he engineer the Dominie with a series of optional parts, including the ventral equipment bay, to allow modelers to build Series 1 or 3 business jets.  

 

Side Note: Sword's team was uniformly unenthusiastic about producing a 1/72 C-140 (Lockheed JetStar) due to its size.

The Dom is a good one to do. Lets hope this goes ahead.   There are some nice Xtradecals waiting for it as long as they are accurate.

Was it not Sword who, not all that long ago, kitted the U-125 which is a late-version maritime patrol..........................HS125?

A family of 1st generation HS.125 Dominie would be a rather logical follow up to their current BAe/Hawker 125-800/U-125/C-29A kits

Could be a very nice kit in 1/48th, just to say.

Sad to hear about the C-140.  Such a great looking aircraft.  Ah well...  Amodel, Modelsvit, Special Hobby, anyone, anyone, Bueller...Bueller...

If any of you has contact with Sword, send them an e-mail in support!

 

Now you mention it, I did have some contact with them when they did the harrier T4 in 1/72 (I wrote the blurb)

Ive just got the -800 and a -400 or series 1 would be great, perhaps it could include the TFE731 engines for the fan 400 as an option (and then I can fan my -600 !

Milan says the Dominie will likely be ready by the end of this year.  Of course, it would be a nice Christmas present!  At the same time, we all know that these projects sometimes slip to the right, scheduling-wise.

Would really like a new Dominie T.1 and HS.125-400, even if they don't go deeper with the early variants (lots of small changes to be honest).

I have a lot of Airfix Dominies in my stash because there are so many attractive schemes, but you really need a lot of work to reach a nice result, at least for my tastes.

Definitely eager to buy at least one when it will be released!
