Quote from: McColm on July 14, 2021, 01:53:41 AMThe Airfix kits have problems as well especially when gluing the fuselage together. In some kits there's a few gaps and the left wing doesn't align properly. I think some of the earlier kits suffered from wrapping. I would leave out the interior details apart from the cockpit as they won't be seen. The new Revell Mk3 isn't compatible with the Airfix kit as it is a bit bigger. If you can get hold of the AeroClub Avro Shackleton AEW.2 conversion set and use it with the old Frog/Novo/Revell MR.3 then you will have a better model.

Quote from: Nick on July 14, 2021, 09:18:42 AMHmm.... Maybe I will bite the bullet and fork out for a modern kit. Will still build the old one so I can say I've done it!
Quote from: The Wooksta! on July 13, 2021, 01:20:53 PMThe Frog is an MR3 with nose gear and it really shows its age, with working features and Clydesdale rivets. Fit isn't good either. The AEW3 I did a few years ago put me off the Frog kit for life.I have the Revell new tool MR3 but I *really* dislike the Revell kits and much prefer the Airfix MR2, whilst I found I couldn't use the Revell 3 for what I wanted either.What you wallet saves, your hairline and stress bank will lose. Pay the cost and get the easier build.Edit: Apparently The Works are flogging the Airfix Shatipuss at a reasonable price.
Quote from: Martin H on July 14, 2021, 11:34:16 AMAt least with the airfix kit you have the chance to install the mid upper turret and the nose guns................which might add to the back story if your supplying early mk-2's.
Quote from: The Wooksta! on July 15, 2021, 09:33:35 AMWondering if the one in Wallsend has any kits...Eldon Square definitely doesn't.
Quote from: NARSES2 on July 16, 2021, 01:51:47 AMI checked Croydon's The Works yesterday just in case. I was going to txt you Nick if they had any but they didn't.
