    My main interest is in Post 1945 but I build most eras and types. Used to build 1/48 but now fully converted to 1/32 and 1/24 scales in aircraft and 1/35 and 1/16+ for armour.
    I also enjoy ship models in 1/350 scale, 1/200 is great but boy that's really big stuff!!

  1. This is their first attempt at introducing a two stage production effort. The single design has to incorporate normal high detail into a 'basic model' to get the additional SWS all inclusive kit that we all know and love. When I first introduced them to the concept at Telford they seemed unsure whether it could work for them at the time. Now the FW190 series is the first project, I'm quite confident it will pay dividends in the market place for them. However, with everything else on the go this has obviously taken a back seat, I'm sure we won't be disappointed when they arrive though!
  2. Oh Boy! They've done it again, what a beauty!!
  3. I think some of us enjoy the 'canvas' approach! Same with any model, I guess you have a starting point and then commence with the AM /cutting etc. At least we'll get one in 1/32 scale to play with! I wonder what HB has planned next...…………...another twin type perhaps? I have an ambition to build two of these birds, I love both the gun and glass noses so not complaining. I would love the K variant if it ever comes, fabulous colour scheme on it too!!
  4. Both types would be most welcome Maurizio! This one was late war but still applies. Looking forward to seeing your version when it comes though. Keep 'em coming!
  5. I can see a rosy future for these type of aircraft in our scale, I guess the other types must be selling well? Shrike anyone? Trying to catch up now ……….truly amazing!
  6. AFAIK there's nothing yet in 1/24 scale as yet. I'm going to encourage a manufacturer I know to get one done, let's wait and see? In the meantime I guess you'll have to scratch one yourself! Good luck with it!
  7. Hi All! Just a quick message to inform everyone that the RAF WWII David Brown Tractor 'Tugmaster' is now available!! Hoorah! Just put my order in, and I must say very reasonably priced too!!! Happy days! http://www.iconicair.com/tractor/
  8. You missed a bit!...………………………... No seriously, the model looks great!!! Let's say I have a good number of these to do...…...if I can get them to this quality I'll be very happy! I must do an Italian AF aircraft one day, pretty markings!!
  9. I hope they go a bit larger on these helos later on, I think a nice Jolly Green would go down a real treat for Vietnam era followers! I do fancy doing a medivac Huey sometime though!
  10. I have to say, for me, the conversion to a B model is very substantive in both modelling time and I think expensive to boot! Pity, as the colours and markings for this version are excellent and I have a number awaiting the kit if it ever arrives? Methinks I would prefer this aircraft as a brand new tool from ANYBODY please!!!
  11. I really do hope that one of them will be the F3, a decal manufacturers dream come true if ever there was one!
  12. As lovely as a new Kitty would be (it certainly would be very well received in the hobby) we do have some nice examples already to choose from. However, some Soviet Cold War fighters that are still badly missing in the larger scales might well be received even better from modellers? If I had a USN choice between a new Kitty or a new 1/32 scale E2-C/D Hawkeye I would definitely go with that one! Let me tell you, I am an absolute Tomcat NUT, ......….but I still have four Trumpy ones to complete already!! Happy days eh!
  13. This is a knockout kit! I'm totally blown away with the quality of this first release and I'll definitely look forward to any new stuff they do in the future! Highly recommended to all.
  14. Agreed! Not only a Mig 25 Foxbat but an Su-24 Fencer family would also go down very well with this modeller!!! Long overdue and they would make some great stable mates for the other big Sukhoi's already done. Exciting times!
  15. I commented not so long ago that if this company ever got into our scale it could be a real game changer. I still stand by that, and a new F-14 Tomcat from them would be totally awesome! I still can't believe we're getting all this great stuff now and in the future, I can't keep up with it all!! We're so lucky.
