That's cool. An 1:72 IP kit (there was a resin kit, IIRC?) would be nice, too.


I'm 100% behind that idea, bring it on!

There was a resin A-12, yes, Anigrand maybe? There's a built one in the SIG display at the Coventry Aviation Museum, built by OGL I think.

An A-12 could very Whiffable, but I couldn't make the wings longer as normal, I might as well get the 1/48 scale version and put smaller markings on it.  ;D ;)

Its a planet tesin kit. And it was was built by Geoff B (aka thorvic)

I was almost right. Well, a bit...........................maybe.............  ;)

It still looks good though.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Hannants have just had a rather large delivery of Modelcollect kits.

Some of the German WWII E series armour certainly looks tempting

I like the look of the E100 with the twin Flak 40s.  But where would it carry the ammo?
It'd need a dedicated ammo tank following it around.

The coastal defense truck with the really big gun on the back also attracts me.

Exotica aside, the range of MAN trucks and tractors provides a basis for all sorts of Cold-War/Modern whiffery.

For instance, you could say that the British Blue Water tactical nuclear missile went into service, and later had it's Bedford carrier vehicles replaced by MANs.

They have certainly brought out a lot of subjects that appeal to me for sure. The range of Russian tanks and vehicles especially have me drooling.
