  1. Thanks for the great pics ! It seems there is a major attack on my purse approaching !
    How many people are visiting ?

  2. Wish I was there. 🙁

  3. A model builders heaven. I concur with Bernd. My purse is surely going to feel it in the new year. The Viggen and the Gnat is on my 2015 shopping list. Hope Airfix could release the Swift in 1/48 scale. Still looking forward to a 1/48 Supermarine Scimitar. Thanks for the updates!!!

  4. That Special Hobby Tempest definitely blows the PCM kit out of the water. And the F-86K got the wing sweep right (unlike the Monogram kit). Looks like Special Hobby/MPM is stepping up their game to compete with Eduard.

    Note to self: when I finally attend Telford, remember to set the alarm for EARLY.

  5. A Tempest II in 1/32 is great news too !

  6. Thank you Martin, glad to see the F-86K is finally about to surface.

  7. The Defiant is hopefully soon available

  8. Airfix is also releasing a 1/72 He 111 concurrent with the 75 anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Defiant is scheduled for January release.

  9. Nice pics thanks but where are the pics of the new Hph 1/48 Concorde?
    Be close to the biggest kit ever..

  10. Looks like I’m in the market for a new Viggen and Gnat! I just wonder if they’ll make a Midge to go with it?
