at long last, perhaps this will turn into one of the most eagerly awaited
kits of next year, I'm beginning to wonder if when I made the change in my
preferred scale to 1/48, it was an error on my part.
another 5 sec and i would have posted this before you, u bugger!! i forgot
to psot it a few hours ago so all my own fault.
Anyway i was wondering how much more the tooling and costs would have been
for a 48th scale? curious, i may just buy 2 (at that sugg maybe price).
would have preferd 48th but im not greedy, the plane doesnt float my boat so
Though 48th would sell more, even at more rrp
Yahoo! - 'bout time! And I've just picked up the relevant issue of Wings of
Fame... it was meant to be. Although until I've got plastic in my hand, I'm
not counting chickens... But it does mean I can add to my phantom RAAF
collection - how's a TSR2 in Aussie style F-111 cammo bite you? And I can
still build the Dynavector version 'for real'. If I ever get one...
At this price I shall start saving to buy enough for a whole squadron!!
Seriously though I think three of four would do me, one as a protatype
aircraft, one in Australian markings based on F-111 colour scheme and the
third in Brittish marking, just have to decide which though, white with pale
squadron marking, "borrowed" from V bombers, or gloss RAF germany marking,
or even wrap round marking, then there is the consideration of which
squadron, decitions decitions.......but then we have a year to think about
Spoke to Mr Airfix at Telford today, its confirmed and funds done for the
TSR2 so 100% cert bext year.
Next Mar (ish)is the RE issue of the 48th Bucc BUT in one box for RAF and RN
Variants rather than seperate as before, 72nd not due to be re issued.
Had a good, it was a last min disicion to go so hardly had any cash, i did
get nearly 40, yes 40 72nd etch sets from Airwaves for a pound each (thanks
Ted Taylor), some i have never seen and others i have searched high and even
Kits of interest i picked up was antother 24th Aifix Harrier AV8-GR3, 48th
Revel (P-M) A 37, and a 72nd Dragon Warrier Iraqi thing and 3 of these
Master Craft Hobby kits 72nd SU 20 / 22 and 17 things, not bad for the
Lots of kits cheap and good stuff.
That had me confused for a moment. They probably meant 37cm. That would
bring it back to 1/72.
Seems like the people from Airfix (or maybe Hannats) are having a bit of a
problem with the metric system.
he said that to me too
It seems Concorde sold well, not a thing i wanted, but i will take a few
I forgot what also is out next year, Airfix had a list that thye show they
shoed people and a lot of fuss and exitment
