all I can say is I hope that the special trolley used for getting blue steel under a HP Victor B2 is included too somewhere in the range
too. even so the tractor transporter unit will be very welcome especially if its the same type as the one from scampton that was saved for the RAF museum.

If you dig your way down through the various layers of the AIM website that Robert linked, you'll see that it is the one that's on the Museum. There's loads of other stuff there too, but much of it is in the project stage apparently.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

I stumbled on this site as the Historical Wings used to do a 1/72 BAe/HS Nimrod MR2P conversion set which included a pair of Yellow Gate ESM wingtip pods, tail fins, metal inflight refueling probe and metal fin.
There's a 1/72 Transport Wings TWC72003 Boeing 767 AWACS conversion kit priced at 51.35 on the Hannants website. Its out of stock.
Not too sure who else stocks this range.

I've been chatting with Neil Gaunt about all his new stuff, he sent me some photos of the B2 masters, looks very nice and very professionally done. There's just a minor adjustment to make to the diameter of the fuselage plug then he's good to go. It will even have a jig to align the u/c pods correctly.
