Would an S.2 conversion for the old Airfix kit be viable? New intakes and exhausts, maybe a cockpit tub, the small fairings that attach to the front of the wing (ECM?).


Which Airfix kit are you referring to, The N.A.39 kit or the Buccaneer S.2 B? If its the latter have you seen what is already on the Freightdog web site?

I managed to completely overlook the S.2 and was assuming they still only did the N.A. 39.

A resupply of the JL-100 rocket pod set for the Lightning could be good. They seem to have gone extinct even on evilbay.

On reflection, perhaps a conversion set for turning a Buccaneer S.2 into an S.1 ?

There's at least two of those about anyway.  Modelart and Heritage.

1/24 car wing mirrors, perhaps a curved classic and the rectangle one seen on most 1980's European cars.

1/72 Vickers Valiant B2 conversion set, if it's possible.
With the Revell 1/72 Douglas C-54 there would be plenty of interest for the ATR 98 Carvair conversion. I think that there has been two vacform sets (or the same but re-release) but they are out of production and very hard to find.
There's a1/144 model kit but none in the larger scales.

AiM released a Valiant B2 conversion last year. It's been out for at least six months.

72nd Carvair fuselage?  FFS! Again, too big and too niche.  Are you either unwilling or incapable of reading Colin's brief?

Not all of the Carvair, as you can use the C-54 fuselage. Just the hump part.

Ooh, one more! If you still have the moulds, how about a reissue of the Hawker P.1154? The 'original' Harrier would make a nice display model. The Maintrack/Project X kit, and original issue of yours are long gone. I heard that anigrand did some of the kit, would that be a problem?

Anigrand mastered the kit and produced the first batch for Colin, but the masters and moulds have been sent to Colin as he had paid for them. They were supposed to be getting the enhancement programme from Paul Lucas to correct minor defects improve detailing etc., in a similar manner to the SR P177, however Paul has been distracted by other projects some of which are for Colin.

I too would love to see the P1154 RAF re-issued pre or post tool enhancement, however I fear the actual production cost at present is not feasible as Colin has to pay in advance for the Kits and Decals to be produced and currently has fund ted up on existing projects along with holding a reserve for the long overdue but greatly anticipated Westland Wasp kit which is supposed to be passed over to him within the next month  :banghead:

Bearing all the above in mind, a naval version of the P1154 would be nice along with a weapons set as a secondary kit to include the Air Dart (air launched version of the Sea Dart).

RATO and JATO bottles would be handy in 1/72 scale.
