The Mach2 kit would be ideal as any improvement would be beneficial  :banghead:

Red Deans, that's the way to go on the missile front. The Canberra's possibly the ONLY aircraft large enough to carry the darn things!

Why not just fit it with nuclear tipped missiles?  If you're going to haul missiles that big around, you might as well make 'em count with the highest P/k

You really don't want to be using nuclear tipped missiles anywhere near, let alone over, a crowded island like Great Britain.

Well according to the only test of a live Genie ever conducted, it's perfectly safe to stand uder one exploding at 20,000 feet...

The RAF wanted Genies for the Lightning force. The only reason they didn't get them was that UK-produced fissile material was in too short supply to use it in 'tactical' weapons.

How about a Canberra GB next year?
I'll put it on my list of suggestions to make.

Just  rooted out  the Canberra kits i have,  one  Pr9 2 B 57 G's and  and  a R/B 57 A/B. The RB is the Airfix one  and  the kit has two different  noses for the  two versions,  thus making  it easier for me to put a bigger  more  suitable  radar  nose  on it. Time period  dictates  a camouflage  scheme  with either  NMF undersides, or perhaps  light grey.  Two Red Deans  should  be easy to  scratch  from the bits boxes.

Cheers Robert,  I think I will need quite a few as I  want  to do a scratch  build and a kitbash with some  on it, I  might  yet get  the set he has for  thus build  yet, as the included nose could  make  things  easier for me.

When Colin first came out with the Red Deans, I bought eight of them plus eight Firestreaks. All for various planned projects which have yet to materialize  ;D

Can never have  too many erm.....red deans ;D ;D
I am going to make  some  of my own versions of  British air to air missiles,  with not  so serious names  as I  have  a load of missile  bodies and  a load of large Russian  missiles  that can be modified.  Tweed  squirrel,  Taupe Bishop being  two of their names  :-X ;D
