The big Airfix announcement: so maybe the Lysander is 1/24 not 1/72.

For someone with a responsible job you are a very naughty man  :rolleyes:

I was on a tea-break when I posted.   ;) ;D :wacko:

With short work breaks now and then perhaps?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

This is what happens when you leave the true world of air traffic!

Regretably I will not be at Telford to defend my position.  :wacko:

Well if you want to play dirty, Jim, did you never as an ATCO take mandatory CAP670 SRATCOH breaks? 

For the uninitiated it means Statutory Regular Applications of Tea, Coffee, Ovaltine and Horlicks.

Eeee! You non operational Controllers working in the big smoke don't know how lucky you are, getting Ovaltine and Horlicks as a choice during a break.
Pure luxury.  :rolleyes:

It's a London FIR thing, Jim.  ;D

Anyway, back to Telford, not seen many kit release rumours leading up to SMW.  I wonder if the Airfix 'big news' is, in all seriousness, a new tool 1/72 Vulcan?

I'll be happy if some of the Czech/Polish, boys or their traders turn up with some of their new tools/promised toolings.

Indeed.  Haven't seen AZ or anyone listed on the IPMS SMW trader list but it could be it's not been updated.  The AZ Stiletto just shouts proxy F-104 whiffery.

Tempted by an AZ Attacker for a RW build. 

Other than that contemplating either a cheap F-105 (single or two-seat for potential Hawker-based whiffing) or (preferably) a very cheap F-4 (any mark) to complete a cut and shunt whif I've in mind.

AZ were sharing with someone last year. Turned up mid morning with their MB.6's etc RS weren't there. I think there were some problems with the new H&S paperwork ?
