  1. Yes please: I'd definitely like one, plus would like the Spitfire Vb front windscreen given similar attention..... Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  2. Well, stap me! It seems the modelling gods are truly generous right now! Ahem, of course some brave soul is putting the finishing touches to a Griffon engined Spitfire conversion set in 1\24 scale even as I type this ( on the basis that at the moment one has to but wish for desired models and they appear/ are announced for release......!!) If only it were true....... Awesome....still can't believe Airfix have done it. I've been grinning like a goof all day! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  3. One has to feel slightly sorry for Buchon Scale Models, who are very close to releasing some (no doubt excellent, if their 1\32 Buchon conversion set is anything to go by) 1\24 Spitfire IX conversion sets ( including a Propeller and low back fuselage set, if you want a Mk xvi), rudders, undercarriage, carb intake, cockpit set ( a whole front end in fact!) and other bits. Like Buses....you wait about fifty years for a 1\24 scale Mk IX Spitfire and two come along at once!! I do hope someone does a Tr IX conversion set; looking forward to seeing what the aftermarket comes up with for this Unicorn.....! Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  4. Well Done Airfix, well done. Simply bloody marvellous; you've made my day a - 1\24 MkIX Supermarine Spitfire. I am struggling to believe what my eyes are seeing, I almost can't comprehend how long I've been hoping Airfix might bring this out. I am going to have check this isn't some figment of my imagination in the morning. You wonderful people!!!! This will sell like hot cakes . Just the best news for a VERY long time. Congratulations, Airfix, you've made an old modeller feel like an excited little boy again!!!! Blue Spitfire Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  5. The 1\24 bomber Mosquito is well overdue for release.....but a Sea fury or a Griffon Spitfire would be all kinds of good things too. Blue Skies in '22! Captain Boogaloo
  6. No Kaga, indeed it does not. But perhaps it should, for the name of a company can infer many things ( product excellence, good customer communication and service, etc). Still hope RB productions will reappear. Perhaps Radu might be persuaded to relaunch it? Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  7. Well I certainly won't be 'flaming' you ( rather a strange expression!), and would defend your right to call out a company that takes your money then does a vanishing act ( although I would temper that statement by saying I pray this is not because the staff are afflicted by Covid). it does not seem unreasonable to expect a company trading with someone's ( well known) initials in its name( which made much of the initial association) to continue to be identified with that person. Perhaps the business change was known to industry insiders, but it certainly came as a shock to me. I still hope that rb productions is resurrected - and you get the things you've paid for. I will definitely only be buying models and parts etc via PayPal for the time being. Best of luck, Nick. Blue Skies Captain Boogaloo
  8. Ok. Erm, sorry Chaps. I will admit to a slight hangover; note to self - the covid blues, several (!) rather large rum, lime and cokes, the clocks changing and a session watching 'Airplane' ( twice!) will create the ' perfect storm' for posting on the forum. Could've been worse I 'spose; at least I didn't post any "embarrassing" photos .....normal ( or what passes for it) service is resumed. Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  9. Thanks Paul; unfortunately Sprue bros don't have the 1\32 bf 109G brass etch canopy frame ( the most wanted on my list), although they do have the 'F' version. Hmmmm might have to settle for that. Maru5137..... " load tubes one thro four, match bearings and shoot!!!! " never mind, the water's warm....and those fins coming towards you are just dolphins. Big, big grey and white dolphins. With lots of sharp pointy teeth. Best check your liferaft is stocked up, You funny man!! On a more serious note (parp!) RB productions website is still down; surely a technical computer glitch with the website would be sorted by now? Or can these things take days/weeks to repair? I know.... "don't call me Shirley" etc. I can't tell. You can tell me, I'm a Doctor . There's no waiting in the red zone. The white zone is for unloading only.it's alright Stewardess, I speak jive. We're bombing the storage depot at Drambuie, coming out of the sun from the north, below their radar. Oh,will I see you this weekend? I can't tell you; it's classified. I asked the guy next to me to pinch me in case I was dreaming. What's your vector,Victor? Still waiting for clearance, Clarence.Johnny, what can you make of this weather report? I can make a broach or a pterydactal! I need every light you can get poured onto this field right now:) Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  10. Good to see Radu is still around; unfortunately the website is still awol. Time to unleash PayPal, methinks. What a downer.First IWM/Duxford are stupid/greedy enough to lose Flying Legends, now RB productions appears to have become another Chinese covid casualty. Is there any GOOD news out there? Ho hum. Captain Boogaloo
  11. You and me both, Keith, you and me both..... ( except I went full 'Gucci' and bought Edward brassin Corsair props....D'OH!) Blue Skies! Captain Boogaloo
  12. Roger that, thanks for your speedy help! Will be watching/waiting...! Stay safe, chaps Captain Boogaloo
  13. Thanks Phantomdriver, Don't really do facething, so thanks for looking. Oh dear, hope Radu is ok. Stay safe chaps. Blue Skies Captain Boogaloo
  14. Many thanks for your speedy help, Kagemusha, but unfortunately after typing a message, I hit send to be told radub is unable to receive messages. So not really any the wiser ( although it ain't looking good!!). Thankfully I paid via PayPal, so ( I hope!) the money should be recoverable, but I do hope the shop stays open; their stuff is very high quality kit. Cheers Captain Boogaloo
  15. Sounds like a plan,Brian, Sir. Erm, how do I locate his pm address? Does anyone know what he's been posting on? Thanks Captain Boogaloo
