Jadlam clearance offer

 

Hi folks. Does the HK Grandslam Lancaster include all of the original Mk I/III parts?

 

Jadlam have it in their clearance sale at £249

That seems quite good value for money doesn't it?:hmmm:

 

Were'nt these kits originally closer to £400 when they came out?

 

(They are also selling the Dambuster at £269 but it's out of stock)

Well, that would be cool indeed, but if only half the rumoured kits from HK were true, they would have released 50+ kits in 1/32 by now.. most of those "streets" seems to be paved with cr... ^_^

True. In the very competitive market of injection-molded kits, HK will only produce models they can have a good chance of selling in large numbers.

 

Would still like to know why their promised British Phantoms never got made, though.

I think that kit is the only one that HK ever teased themselves. I would have loved to see that Phantom..

 

I must admit I don't really see the Halifax being a big seller so I am pretty sure that rumour will not come true anytime soon.

I would see much more perspective in expanding their lineup of twin-engined bombers, Wellington, Beaufort, Beaufighter, Blenheim etc... And don't even get me started on the German birds, but it seems HK are not really into Axis aircraft.

Unfortunately I believe you're right though I'd take a Halifax over a Lancaster [ I know how dare I]. Considering they did a B-17 it would've been somewhat logical to follow it up with a -24 . If they would've done a -24. it in all probability would've blown Hobby Boss' into the weeds. So, they come out with the Lanc and same thing, the logical next release should've been the Hali, but no dice. They did do the Dornier Do-335[several versions] ,which to be honest made no sense to me. They spent resources doing different versions of an aircraft that didn't see much if any service, but the -24 and Hali? Nada! To bad about the Brit Phantom ,that's really the only version I'm into [figures]

The design of the first mold being quickly and cheaply adaptable to all the subsequent ones, perhaps? 

 

Just an opinion... I've never read anything to that effect. 

 

I'm a bit biased - I bought the two-seater, "A-10" version and it looks like a very good effort, sitting in the box. 

 

Cheers.

I too have a single seater[unbuilt] so I kind of get it, the other versions [?????]. You may very well be right . I sometimes wonder how large the market is for big scale 4 engine heavies, there must be some kind of demand though most people will probably just get one. As far as the twin engine aircraft that they could do ,mentioned above they could also include a TU-2 and a PE-2.
