Received this morning from A2Z

1 x 1/72 Sea Vixen improvement set for the Xtrakit version.

I've got one of those too, superb work on their part  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Is that a subliminal message to yourself that you wanted a bag of crisps ?  ;D

First of the year for me something big and time consuming. Had a bad year last year so need something to envelope me like a large double modeling duvet  :wub:

Airway Vac Form : Armstrong Whitworth Argosy

I haven't anywhere to display it when (if) it gets finished but it's a big solid vacform so plenty of mindless sanding and filling and sanding and filling and .....

I nearly got a Hastings too but someone else beat me to it, so I picked up the Contrail one instead along with an Air Traders Carvair ---- I don't think I will win the race though, they're for a project way down the road --   ;D

Recent addition via ebay

Looks lovely and might tempt me to buy more of their stuff.

Bob, Contrail never did a Hastings - they did an Avro Tudor though and can I get one?  Can I fairycakes - Formaplane did the Hastings and the moulds/masters got passed to Aircraft in Miniature, who repopped it in a thicker plastic with resin engines.  I've the former incarnation and would like the resin engines to clone.  Can I find one?  See the Tudor.

The newer stuff is really nice. Some of the earlier stuff is a little more "limited run" and needs more work but is still eminently buildable. They are one of my favourite limited run producers  :thumbsup:
