Who do you think makes the S&M canberra?

Mikro-mir. So the price wont be much  different.


I don't know these things, I just build 'em.  ;)

I didn't know S&M did a Canberra. Might be needing a T.11. :thumbsup:
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.

IIRC it's a B2 out of the box. They had it at Telford last year.

I've done a bit of Google-fu and found they do a T.4 too.  Looks a bit tasty in the reviews. Think I need to treat myself. Thanks for the heads up guys!

No, they didn't have any for sale, just the test shots to peruse - I had 170 notes for Mel Bromley on the Friday if he'd had the Hastings and the Cranberry but he ruefully informed me that both were delayed and said notes remained snug in my wallet.  He had the Cranberries at Bolton - I got one of the last three B2s he had there - but still no Hastings.  Which leaves my wallet somewhat happier and fuller.

There's a lot of differences between a B1 and a B2 though.

Those insane lads at MikroMir have just announced they'll be to rendering a "Silbervogel" (Silverbird) Antipodal-Bomber in 1/72 come early next year!

"Silbervogel" Antipodal-Bomber?

And the Horten Ho.IX V-1 glider, which looks gorgeous although I'm hoping they'll do the V-2 too.
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

There's a build of the Micro-Mir Beverley in the latest AMW, and apparently, there's a typo on the decal sheet thus:

ROYAL AIR FORCE MIDLE EAST

(should be two 'D's in 'middle' for non-native-English speakers)


Shelf-Oddity do a replacement set:  https://shelfoddity.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_65&product_id=171

Also available via Coastal Craft.

If you've got a Beverley in the stash and havn't noticed the error yet, you might want to snag one of these decal sets since they may not be around forever.
