i know this is a bit late but i now find i need a AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat for a "small" project i have started and as far as i know nobody is even looking at making this new aircraft for the royal navy and RAF and army

I'm sure Hairyfix (and maybe Hobby Boss or Revell) will get round to it eventually. It's not due in service for a couple of years yet.

Looking forward to the announcements, Colin!  :thumbsup:

acutely 700(W) squadron royal navy stands up in September next year. this is the traditional squadron number for the operational trails squadron in the  royal navy and should be in front line service around 2013

Been re-reading my copy of BSP-Jet Bombers since 1949, I quite like that Armstrong Whitworth AW.168 ----

An idea for the future Colin (since you'll have to wait for the kit to come out): how about a B Mk.II conversion for Airfix's Valiant? AFAIK, the differences are a forward fuselage plug, the u/c fairings and new gear, and a different bomb-aimer's blister.

ok people, lets not get greedy.

Colin has made his choice (no I dont know what they are). so let it be for now.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Quite true Martin. Today I recieved a test casting on one of the engine assembles (ohh, its got more than one engine - I said to much), absolutely wonderful mastering by Mr Lucas, I cant wait for more bits. This kit is a departure for me from my comfort zone, but I think it will be very popular when you see it...

Well I didn't expect him to do a Valiant B Mk.II anytime soon, given that the kit isn't even out yet (and may not be for some time), but given the level of interest, it struck me as possibly being a real money-spinner to consider at some point in the future.

Given that the test shots are in the UK, I have a feeling we may see the Valiant sooner rather than later.  I certainly hope so!
