Since it's a D model, I bet it's Monogram's.

Judging by the engines and paint job, the aircraft in the photo is an F model. But since the Mk3 Wessex on the linked page is labelled as a Mk2, who knows?

What about the 1/48 Chinook on image 5?

I see the engines now. Maybe they updated the Monogram. Looks like a bunch of their 1.48 stuff could be Monogram stuff tho.

Wouldn't it be funny if it was the old Aurora kit which Monogram probably got in the '70s & it was updated like Monogram did with a lot of Aurora kits?

I think that's a photo of a real plane, hence assuming that it's anything other than a "B-52" is pushing it. Note that they don't claim a model in the description.
Thinking about it, didn't Italeri buy the AMT molds (see also the 1/48 A-20)? I'd say it'd more likely be one of those.

I was wondering about that pic myself. "B-52" is just too generic. Especially if it's the God-awful AMT kit, they really blew with the tall-tailed BUFF pic.

The way molds float around these days you have to be a bloody Sherlock Holmes to keep track of which kit is genuinely new and which is someone's old cast off.

Reckon the Wessex is the old Matchbox?

I was just thinking that myself!

If the contents of the box live up to the picture rather than the caption, I'd say it was the Revell HAS.3 tooling of the Italeri / Revell H-34 kit that was released a few years back. Very welcome too, as the Revell kit is difficult to find these days. Plus there's already an aftermarket detail set for it

Yeah, I finally gave up waiting & ordered one from Hannant's the other day, as long as I was ordering Trumpeter's Blackjack.
