  1. Does anyone on here know where I can get 1/32 scale decals for 767 or 892 squadron FAA. I've given up waiting and decided to do the F4J and convert it myself, but I can't find decals.
  2. If the Buccaneer in the pictures is 1/32 scale and off ARK I may go for that instead of a second Phantom.
  3. On the 1/32 Phantom, do we know which squadrons will be covered. I served on 767 and 892 Navy squadrons, and it would be nice to have a large scale version of my old 'cab' XT863 (150 on 767) and later (014 on 892). I have been waiting for the HKM version, but it seems to have stalled. If both squadrons were covered then I would order 2, in order to do both aircraft.
  4. On ‎10‎/‎6‎/‎2015 at 1:14 AM, Jennings Heilig said: It is official, and Neil asked me to announce it. So here it is: HK Models is working on a 1/32 Spey Phantom kit. Design work is well underway, with release sometime in 2016. That's straight from the horse's mouth... It's now 2020 and still no word as to when it will be available for purchase. Poor Jennings has been fielding questions as to why and when for some time now, (I am guilty of this as I worked on both of the Royal Navy squadrons and would love a large version of my cab). I understand Jennings reasons for silence, but can I say that none of us that actually worked on them are getting any younger.
  5. Lets hope the HK kit is all it's cracked up to be as we have all been waiting a long time for it. If it is likely to be soon then I won't do the F4J conversion I had planned. Do we know which squadrons will be covered decal wise? Any idea on dates and price yet, so I can put some cash by ready.
  6. Looks like I'll just have to fudge the F4J kit and see how it comes out. Price of the conversion is prohibitive even for me, and I worked on them for so long I got to know them inside out and backwards.
  7. Hi Tim, If you are up for selling the wild hare conversion it depends on price. As ex 892 (014) plane captain on Ark I would love to build my "cab" in all it's glory, as if on the cat ready to go, in this scale. I have a Tamiya 1/32 already so the conversion shouldn't be so hard (or would it).
  8. Thanks Iain, You're not far from me, I'm in Somerset. Spent time at Yeovilton then squadron moved to Leuchars in Fife. I've done the 1/48 of 767 and 111 squadron, both as XT863 (150) and (G). She later moved to 43 squadron, but I haven't done that one yet. Just wanted to do my cab in larger scale.
  9. Hi Guys, New to the site and hoping to get a 1/32 Phantom of 892 Squadron off the Ark Royal. Served on the squadron for 8 years as well as 767 and PTF. My aircraft was 014 (XT863) on my second tour on Ark, then I got my Petty Officers rank.
