Proper  - of or pertaining to the specific modelling area of interest of the whinger.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Interesting. Now in the context of said whinger's use of it I saw it as being used in the same way as in the phrase "prim and proper". Still English is a marvellous language  :angel:

There are times (like this) when im glad I dont do Facebook. :mellow:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Evening gents,

I am pleased to confirm the first production run of the HS.125 Dominie COD and Radar Trainer sets arrived today from the caster. Lovely clean castings, now I need to test build and write up instructions ready for release next weekend. At Mr McEvoy's suggestion, the COD version will be named the HS.125 Pinnace, named after a small boat, typically with sails and/or several oars, forming part of the equipment of a warship or other large vessel.

I've decided for the time being not to include decals, the re-issued kit has a lovely decal sheet for general stenciling, and roundels/codes and squadron markings are available from Xtradecal/spares boxes. I will however try to include some what-if profiles to give some inspiration. Not including decals will help to keep the price of the sets to around £12 each (to be finalized).

In addition the Naval Tandem Hunter should also be ready for release over the what was Telford weekend.

Thanks for your ongoing support.

Colin

Cool!  Will PM an order for the radar trainer Dominie set, meanwhile for the COD version maybe a scheme option could be based on one of the green Sea Heron - or was it a Sea Devon? - admiralís barge aircraft?

Well I definitely will be wanting to purchase one of each of the HS.125 COD and HS.125 Radar Trainer sets  ;D

Can you remind me what differentiates the Naval Tandem Hunter from previous tandem Hunters, I am genuinely starting to lose track of the various variations?  :lol:
Oh to be whiffing again :-(

Its all in the nose. The Naval version includes the original nose plus a new Harley light nose and a Blue Fox radar nose (like the T.8M). Also includes a tail hook and SHAR style pitot for the Blue Fox option.

Colin ..... my wallet hates you!  :wacko:  ;D

So will these (along with the radar Red Tops) be available on the website fairly soon? (Telford was going to be next weekend?)

I think  that my wallet  is not going to like you either  Colin, as I might have to  buy another  Revell hunter and  airfix Dominie too, unless I can  get the hunter set to fit either the old airfix kit or frog kit. :banghead: Radar  redtops could  very well see themselves put on  another  RAF  sea harrier.

My apologies to wallets worldwide!

I'm hoping to get the sets listed on my website on Saturday, and be posting out after the weekend. I have all the castings, just writing up the instructions. Mike McEvoy got a sample yesterday and is busy putting it together, its been a tradition since I first released the SR.177 back in 2006 that Mike gets an advance copy. Normally he would have a built up example on the What-If stand of my Telford new release, it does seem very strange that this year will be different.

My wife suggested I lockdown my wallet .....funnily enough I suffered temporary hearing loss at that point.

Looking forward to your new releases, but yes, it is a shame (typical British understatement time!) about Telford  :-\
