SIPMS Telford 2018 - Airfix New Tool Anmoucement

Has anyone any thoughts on what it might be? I know there are many requests for people's favourites on the Wish List Forum.

 

I do not have any insider information but if I was inclined to have a bet I would have a sneaky £1 on a Handley Page Halifax B.1! Only because if you look at the box artwork for the new Me262 Night Fighter it's depicted having just downed a H.P Halifax! Airfix did a similar scene when the Me262 was first released with the new tool B.17 in the ariel scene!

 

Just a wild stab in the dark but does anyone else agree or have any other thoughts??

 I am tired with all the speculation, which is no more than the individual's personal wish list. Only four days before we get to know - OFFICIALLY.

Yes it's only speculation, and yes only 4 days to wait for the announcement but it's only me making some comment on my thoughts if anyone wanted to respond to them which is what the forum is all about! 

 

If you are tired of the speculation it was your choice to read the post and then to reply to it! You didn't have too??

Is this a five minute argument or the full half hour?

Yes I asked for any thoughts but it was in relation to my thoughts regarding any possible new tool announcement and intended to generate a discussion about that topic, not your thoughts suggesting I shouldn't have the right to pose the question just because you are bored with the subject!

Convoluted I know but last  month I saw something on Hannants website that raised one of my eyebrows. It might well have been any number of compounding errors, but there was a masking set for an Airfix FG1 Phantom in 1/48 scale listed under 'future releases'. Does it mean someone simply made a mistake,  or are we being told something we shouldn't have been told?

Typo, I'm not reading anything into it. As Ratch says, we'll find out at 11.00 am, Saturday, although if people wish to speculate, that's their prerogative. Personally I'd be thinking along the lines of another gap from the old catalogue being filled with a new tool.

I suppose we could all prepare ourselves for no big announcement at all with any releases being new decals/markings/subtypes.

I've no doubt there will be a big announcement!

 

As soon as they announced that there will be an announcement, it's human nature to speculate what the announcement might be. Wink
