I can see a Hawk Major in my stash...
Me too - the local aero club had an M.2F Hawk so it's a no-brainer for me (if it can be made to look right)!

Even if it can't, just look at those spats/trousers... :wub:

The PR Spits are out, at least in the Czech republic, as they are on the bay of evil. Three boxings!

The sprue shots look promising, but I have a quite a few PR.XIs from various manufacturers anyway, so I'll just get the one. I'm not that impressed with KPs decals either.

The fixed tail wheel ones, with the smaller rudders, are not PR.XIs. They're mk.IXs used for training as they didn't have the wet wing.

Hannants have three Miles Messenger kits in their New Arrivals section, although they're out of stock and overdue for delivery at the moment:

Is that the same mould as the Pavla 'Monty's Messenger'?

I've had one of those in The Loft for some time now, and it's a lovely little kit. Emphasis on the 'little'.....
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! :)

Same mould.  AZ/KP seem to have purchased many of Pavla's tools and seem to be rereleasing the better ones.

Nope. If you look at the listings, they specifically say "new tool - not a Pavla kit" in the titles.

The latest batch of future releases on the Hannants pages include these 4 boxings which I know will interest some.









The listings are saying "New Tool". More details on the Hannants site.

We can only hope they come with white metal or wire reinforced resin undercarriage legs...

Because they'll need TONS of nose weight, if you can find anywhere to put it..................  :banghead:

Just glue them to a base. I use nice cheap drinks mats.

I've got a 1/72 resin Slingsby Firefly which will be a real b!tch to get it to stay on it's wheels. It has three engine cowling options, all of which are separate solid resin parts, I'll have to try drilling it out a bit so I can slide some lead into it.
