Aerocraft Models. They do quite a lot of extras and improvements in several scales and well worth a look.  They also do a few interesting conversions.

DWI Wellington conversion:

Buccaneer S.1 conversion, in two sets:

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.

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! :)

No idea why, but this has always fascinated/amused me ever since I first read about it years ago.
Decals my @r$e!

Same basic idea as JP233 but with a single pod chucking munitions out the side.  I guess it had a wider spread than the RAF pods.
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.

for those wondering. Aerocraft is the new trading name for Alister formaly of Allycat models.
I have a few of his sets and they are of an excelent casting standard as we would expect from someone with Aly's reputation.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
