Those 162s should allow us to build all those gorgeous Salamanders Richard posted profiles of a while back  :wub:

But Model Hobbies have and I've just ordered a couple....they arrived on Tuesday at their warehouse.
Took the chance of ordering a couple of HB MiG-3s and Eduard 1/72nd Il-2s as well.

The TA-7C is also out, but as a standard kit in USN markings of course.
It could be used for the Portuguese or Greeks as well as other more imaginitative use.

Here is a build of the HB MiG-3 from Internet Modeler:

Modelzone didn't have them in.  :angry: And neither have Hannants.   :angry:

Still, there are three Xtrakit Spitfire XIIs waiting for me in Whitley Bay and I collect them tomorrow...   :D
Look again Lee, they have now appeared on the Hannants future releases page ready to update new arrivals tomorrow night. The Revell Lightning F6 is also listed along with the two Valom Fisher P-75's

You know, I was in Modelzone at metro Centre today and...................................









































They didn't have them!! Actually, didn't have much - half the aircraft kits had disappeared.

Must get to the Whitley Bay shop one of these days.....

Nice to have another D-520 kit - I thought about a 1947, Merlin-powered Dewoitine yesterday (with Mosquito engine)  :wub:  
King Arthur: Can we come up and have a look?
French Soldier: Of course not. You're English types.
King Arthur: What are you then?
French Soldier: I'm French. Why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king?

Well regardless I would rather take my chance out there on the ocean, that to stay here and die on this poo-hole island spending the rest of my life talking to a gosh darn VOLLEYBALL.

hi,
came across these the other day and discovered these are all going to be released as a simple plastic kit roughly at £3.99.

i've got the typhoon and spitfire and the fuselarge is one solid piece with pre moulded interior and a one piece wing and they look fantastic even though they are unbuilt

My experience is limited to their P-40s, E and N.


Su-flippin-perb, folks. I'm looking to get one or twelve of their Spitfire Mk.Vb (normal...they do trop as well!), as well as maybe their Yak-3 if I can justify/find a scheme. I mean, how cool is it that they do a Yak as well as 109, 190, Mustang etc? Go Hobby Boss!

hi,
found out this morning that not all of the kits are going to be released in the easy kit form but the eurofighters and a-10s will be.
i've got the spitfire, hurricane and typhoon and did a dry run on the spitfire this morning and it fits togehter excelently without any gaps or steps.
