OK chaps, here are a few of the items coming out in 1/72, I can mention them now as they are already cast;

- Sea Harrier FA.2 AMRAAM missiles and fuselage pylons (finally!)

- TSR.2 extended nose leg (ex-MAM)

- Bristol Blenheim tropical filters

More to follow...

There is a write up on L1750's operational use with its 20mm cannon with 151 Sqn here;

Splendid link Colin, thanks for the post.  :thumbsup:

I like the bit where he says '........I set off in Matilda, my five year old Ford 8 (BYD 867), from Aston Down to North Weald and as the sun made me feel drowsy I stopped near Cirencester, lay down in the long grass, and had a nap.....'

It must have been a VERY hot sun as Cirencester is only about 5-6 miles from Aston Down! I used to drive that route regularly when my office was in Ciren.  ;D

Hm, yes. Combine those two on an 1990s FAA TSR2 Fleet Defence fighter?  ;D

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Can you put at least two sets of these to one side for us please Colin ;D
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Lots of nice ideas and things to spend money on, pity I will have no money to spend until the end of November.  :banghead:

As long as there's a few Spitfire VIII & F24 conversions, plus a Seafire 46 or two and the early two stage Merlin conversion to hand, then we're cool. May have to order another half dozen Seafire 46 contraprops too.

Colin, do you have any Mosquito B.IV Special sets?
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Sorry for the off-topic question, but do you have any A-4C Skyhawk noses left? If so, I could use another one (at least). Don't need all the other "trimmings", just the nose casting.
