New Airfix kits for 2008

I wouldn't mind building an EB-57E. The Aircraft Grey colour scheme always suited that aircraft extremely well.

In my opinion, it's the dangly bits that make a model. The EB-57E has the possibility of deployed flaps and airbrakes and there's that huge canopy, with all the cockpit detail potential. And when you consider the panel rash (stencils) and the potential for some nicely restrained weathering, then it is a superdetailer's dream.

Oh... don't get me started... As a railway modeller, I'm particularly susceptible to that affliction! Can you imagine just how anal I can get regarding the interiors of Stanier coaches?????

Hopefully it's the last time for them doing that. I can understand why this is happening if they haven't got a whole wad of cash to play with, to sit down and have people go out and re-measure all the old aircraft and fix the old errors in measurements and ignore hashed-together aircraft in museums made from various marks, make totally new moulds, etc...
Hopefully if they then get enough spare cash coming back in from the older stuff, they'll be able to knock out a more professional range of things.
Just a thought.

I'll bet on that Miles being a Master. I remember one Scale Aircraft Modelling having an article on how to convert the Master into a Martinet.

Yes, all Novos were ex-Frog including the Swordfish.There was no Swordfish from Lindberg. Frog, Airfix, Matchbox, diecast from Corgi. There should be a new kit from the MPM combine in the not too distant future.Happy modeling,tOMOn May 2, 11:27=A0pm, snipped-for-privacy@some.domain wrote:> In article , snipped-for-privacy@verizon.net wrote:> >Enzo Matrix wrote:> > >> kim wrote:> >>

are you positive tom?i would swear i built one but you do know your kits. especially 1/72. i don't have the directions or box art in my 60's archive, so i'm sure you're right. but i built the thing, honest, yeah..... a variety of crs i suppose.

How about the JB issues? I don't how exactly you stick a Vickers Light Tank into a WW II diorama, but it's pretty interesting to have a model one to purchase at all.
