It should be possible to do all the missiles again.

Are you looking for the Blue Water on its own, with the TSR.2 pylons or the whole TSR.2 Blue Water set (with belly tank, IFR etc)?

Thanks, Colin



Hi Colin, I've got the Blue Water set from SAM Publications, but I used the two Blue Water pylons on another project, would it be possible to buy an extra two to replace them for the Blue Waters.

Just the Blue Waters for me.   :thumbsup:

I would not mind a set of Blue Dolphin missiles either, hope we are showing enough interest to have another batch made. Looking forward to the Hawk items being ready as well.
Same for me in both respects.  I wouldn't mind grabbing some more of those TSR.2 sets, either.

I see that Freightdog are selling the 1/72 Mach2 Avro York C.1 kits,, are there any plans for an improvement set?

Please no! I have one in stock because I ordered it for someone who changed his mind. I was tempted to add it to my stash and combine it with the second edition of the Airfix Lancaster (which the kit is based on), just use the fuselage from the Mach2 kit and bin the rest. It would be cheaper than an improvement set, you can pick up the old kit fairly cheaply, I have three in the stash myself.

A sensible and easy way to do things which as you say Colin will produce a much easier way to produce the desired result. I have a simmilar project to do with a CMR York Conversion (fuselage) and an unwanted Hasegawa Lancaster. End result should be simmilar.

Thanks for your reply Colin,  I had an idea for a float plane or flying boat version.

I've got two of those CMR conversions so I can build the C.I and the C.II. I went a different route for the donor kits though, I wrote to Airfix explaining what I wanted and for what and they sold me just the bits needed. Mind you that was some years ago. I bought the Paragon Hercules conversion for the Lancaster for the C.2 too.  I read some time ago that someone had said that the Hercules engines/nacelles were on the small size, but I'm happy to report they're no different to the Hercules engines/nacelles on Airfix's new tool B.II which I also have in the stash now.

Just wondering if the P.1109B conversion set will be releced again, he said hopefully.

I'll second that request.  I would also like to purchase some 1/72 Blue Dolphins.

Just noticed an error on the website Colin: you've got the 1/144th Kingcobras in the Civil Products section.

Just received my Hawk T.2 conversion.  Lovely little set.  Makes me really hope we can see the Sabre missiles in 1/48 at some point!  So many late Cold War whiffery possibilities.

Same here and I'd love to see the missiles and launch rails offered by themselves for fit to Harriers, Jaguars, et al. in both 1/72 and 1/48.

Just compared the conversion kit to the Italieri hawk 100 and I can see that fit up will require some fettling to get right.  I have an Airfix Hawk 100 coming also and I will check the fit-up on that, too.
