Airfix kits

Post by Eric Sanger » Sun Jan 14, 2018 1:39 pm

Just received my weekly update from Hannants
under "future releases" Airfix are releasing (or is that re-releasing) a number of kits; new to me are 1/48 Gloster Meteor, P51D and Sea Fury (Export version). Worth taking a look at if you're into all "things-with-wings".
Meanwhile some of you must be delighted with their release of a 1/48 Phantom II in Royal Navy markings!
love to see a review .

should've gone to Hannants shop before I posted as I see the P51D is already in there and selling well as is the Phantom, like the proverbial hotcakes.
Saw Frank in there buying one and some add-ons. He apologises in advance for not being at the next meeting as he will be in Lanzarote - poor Frank! just think what you're missing; anyway someone else will be proxying his model for him, presumably in the Lucky Dip competition.

Hi Eric
Phantom review can be found here :- the unofficial airfix modellers forum.
The big news is 1/48 Hunter f.mk6. Me-262 night fighter version will be £19! (46% increase)
If you are going to hannants again could you pick up an order for me please.

Regards Ian

Will do Ian.
I knew that one order (which I have collected) would never be enough.

Hi Eric

Thanks very much for that, one more order due end of next week.
I"ve been waiting forever for this one (Chinese version of MIG-19).

Cheers Ian
