Next Xtrakit release
« on: November 21, 2009, 09:16:11 am »
Heard a whisper that their next release is to be a Supermarine Swift.  Don't know which variant but very likely the FR5, given that it remained in service longer than the deathtraps that were the F.1 and F.2s.

A little while back, quite a few Xtrakits were listed on the Hannants website under future releases, then disappeared.  I think one of them was a Swift & I'm pretty sure there was a Vampire F.5.  I'm pretty sure there were some others too, can't remember what, a few Spitfire marks come to mind.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

... with a conversion for an F7 with a longer nose and two Fireflashes? Erm, I guess not, but I can dream.......  :angry:
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! :)
