Hi Colin, can I reserve a Lightning VG set as well please?
Cheers! :cheers:

Hi Colin, please cancel my reservation, I unfortunately can't make it to Telford now. :(  I'll order a set through your site when it's available.
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.

Do one with long, thin wings, just to be different..... ;)

I take it these are a pylon mounted pod version of the rockets carried in the fwd fuselage of the Sea Vixen ?

Strewth, you've been busy at Freightdog Towers the last few weeks!  :o :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Hi Colin:

I cannot wait to get a few copies of your Canberra P.12 All Weather Fighter re-issue for Airfix B.(I)8. Do you know if Airfix will be re-releasing the B.(I)8? The ones on Ebay etc are very pricey.

Now I see your kit has used with other B-57/Canberra models? Would I be in violation of Artistic ownership rights if I did the same?  :unsure:

No Carl I don't know if Airfix will re-issue the kit, but I have no objection to you sticking the bits on any Canberra of your choice! Actually because of the circular section of the nose part, it should easily fit on any Canberra, and I've adjusted the instructions to say you could also use it on a  Frog of High Planes B.(I)8 if you have one in the stash. having said that, I think using it on a B-57 is a crime against Canberra's, but that is just by opinion!

Thanks Colin. I don't have the Frog or High Planes B.(I)8 either but I'l keep an eye for those kits.

8ugger you beat me to it.  I've had one half done for ages and hoped to be the first!  Different weapons fit though, and I'd not thought about an IFR probe.

This is not my build but the B-57s are overall much easier to come by than the B.(I)6/8/20 kits.
