That 1/72 scale Swallow looks as if it should be in the Star Wars universe.

Was the DH127 that one with a pair of swivelling exhaust nozzles as well as a conventional exhaust?

That's the one, Kit.

I've got the plans for it blown up in the scratchbodge plan book.

I LOVE the 1/72 scale Swallow, will it carry a Tallboy?  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Blue Danube or a recessed Blue Steel would probably fit.

I want a Swallow at some point, but will have to sell some stuff to fund it.

I wish to be associated with the above comment.  :thumbsup:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Thanks, the comments on customer service mean a lot

I had been messaging with another modeller about getting a kit to him ahead of release for a planned recuperation and then sorting out some spares and checking in last week how the build was going which you could call customer service but was more friendly modellers having a natter. I learned yesterday that he passed away on this week.

I'm very glad that we were chatting as fellow modellers - that's how I very much want to work

Apologies for not embedding the pics properly but due to log in issues I can only access on my phone

AW171 test build is done and looking very nice.

I've sent off a few recent orders so that's me all but cleaned out - thanks everyone for the support and so see y'all in August when I turn the printers back on after their summer break
