Don't forget Kit, I still owe you a conversion set as runner up in the Pegasus Group Build, tell me which you would like and I can hold it for you, or post it if your not at the show (same goes for Jaybee)

Even better news Colin, I didn't think these would be included in the 'possibles', so thank you very much.  ;D

I'll be there for sure, having been incarcerated in Essex for the whole of next week I'll need a 'Whiff Shot' for sure! Which set has the recon pack please, I can't figure it out from the list you posted above?
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! :)

The Fighter set is completely new (although the missiles were in the discontinued P.1154 weapons set), and other sets in development feature new parts, for example there will be reconnaissance set that will include the wing tanks, plus new chaff dispensers and outer pylons, and belly recon pack is a completely new shape.

Colin  

You can put me down for one of the Reconnaissance sets and probably one of the others when I make up my mind which I will want

Hi Kit, the recon pack will be in set five, not any of these. Set four will be Blue Water, hopefully ready for Cosford show. Not sure when the recon set will be ready, but your welcome to wait till it is.

I know theres lots on your plate Colin, but is there any chance of us seeing the Buddy Refuelling Pack as a future set?  :unsure:

 :cheers:

Odds & Ordnance do one Dunc. And its a damn fine bit of casting :)
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

I think it would be rather rude of me to not get one of everything....  :thumbsup:

Seeing as I missed the original TSR-2 feeding frenzy when the kit first appeared, and thus didn't get the SAMI sets....  :rolleyes:

Good to here it Duncan, all I need is another few hundred more like you! No plans for the Buddy pack, best go to OaO for that. No need to compete, there are plenty of other bits to do!

The fighter set is a welcome option and the Strike sets coupled with teh Model Alliance decals might hopefully lead to a few more kits actually being built.

Certainly getting both these sets when they become available.

I'll give you a clue, its white and pointy.....  

Other than a pointy white thing I have to assume you mean a Douglas X-3 Stiletto?

Will Freightdog be at the Scottish Nationals and if so will the TSR2 items be there as well ?

My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Unfortunately I won't be there but Alistair of A2Zee will have stocks of the TSR2 sets on his stand.

Glad to see these sets are progressing nicely! Is Paul mastering any missile warning receiver fairings for the nose, or an extended IFR probe?

Not that I know of Damien, I think he's working on getting the Blue Water set ready for Cosford (and doing the Green Cheese Bucc set to).
