Lovely build, just wish Airfix  would reissue!

Many thanks!

I would think that's it's only a matter of time Farmerboy?

Very nice indeed! Your dio looks great too 👍👍

Yes it's a great kit...but getting scarcer by the minute hence the prices are rising steadily. If Airfix reissued it now I'm sure it would be 80 odd quid! 😳😳

Thanks very much binbrook87...I agree mate, quite scarce now and concur with the potential pricing!!

Was expecting an F-35 Lightning, was delighted to see the proper version. Love it, got XS901 on my bench needing the last few decals. 

Pleased you got a nice surprise TeaWeasel! Looking forward to seeing XS901!

Very nice build of a lovely kit. 👍

 

I am currently building the F-1/F-1A/F-2/F-3 version of the Airfix 1/48 Lightning which I was lucky enough to buy two years ago on eBay for £23 including postage and came with lots of aftermarket bits and bobs. I would love to build the F2A/F6 version as well but second hand prices seem to have gone loopy. Come on Airfix, re-release this one!

Many thanks, much appreciated! The prices do seem to be on the rise Dave, I have a couple in the stash which I'll get around to eventually? pretty much like the Trumpeter 1/32 Lightning (as bad as it is!) with regards to rocketing prices. No doubt Airfx will re-release the Lightning but with a big price hike (probably) Can't beat a Lightning in natural metal finish!spacer.png
