In the latest edition of Workbench, we feature a trio of classic British jet aircraft which have, or are just about to be, immortalised as plastic scale models in the current Airfix range. We look at how all three can claim to be amongst the most attractive aeroplanes produced by Britain’s aviation industry and have therefore become firm favourites with modellers all over the world.

 

Also, we have yet another Workbench exclusive and are pleased to bring you the latest images from our impressive new 1/48th scale Hawker Hunter F.6 project.

In the latest edition of Aerodrome, we head down to Salisbury Hall in Hertfordshire, where it is possible to view three magnificently restored de Havilland Mosquitos in the same historic hangar. Making this an even more memorable occasion, two of the aircraft were dragged outside the hangar for a unique photo opportunity which was definitely not to be missed. We bring you a report from the event and look at why the de Havilland Aircraft Museum is such a unique aviation location.

Following a brief lull in our stream of samples last month, The Engine Shed returns with loads of exclusive first looks, including some of the sounds from the unique TTS Vent Van.

 

If you have any feedback on this month's Engine Shed be sure to let us know. We're particularly keen to hear your thoughts on the sound samples we've included with the TTS Vent Van!

To mark the impending 75th anniversary of the famous ‘Dambusters Raid’, the latest edition of Workbench features the welcome return of a popular Airfix kit to the 2018 range and we will see why these ‘Special’ Lancasters proved to be so fascinating for the modeller.

 

We also look at two beautiful new British Aerospace Hawk schemes due for impending release, announce the winner of our recent 1/24th scale Typhoon competition and showcase some beautiful Airfix cars which are looking a little the worse for wear.

Morning all,

 

I understand it can be frustrating that you can't share all your builds here on the Airfix Forum, but we decided early on that the Airfix website shouldn't actively promote other manufacturers. Now, we aren't ignoring or turning a blind eye to the fact that other manufacturers are involved in this hobby of ours - we know that aftermarket parts are used, paints, decals etc. but the important point here is that these still involve Airfix. As with our Customer Image section, the website requires simply that Airfix be involved in the build or what's being shown.

 

It's great that there's other manufacturers in this hobby (without them, our suggestions list would be five times as long!), but I think it's reasonable that we've made the decision not to promote them on our web space. This means that any builds, images etc. that focus solely on something that doesn't involve Airfix aren't permitted. I feel that's a reasonable balance and one that falls in line with the website as a whole.

 

If you still disagree with this policy, please get in touch with me privately (using forum@airfix.com). I don't think much good can come from continuing the debate here and further pulling this great thread off topic.

As this week marked the Centenary of the establishment of the Royal Air Force, we had to come up with something a little special for the 91st edition of our Aerodrome blog.

 

Join us as we head for RAF Cosford and an exclusive night shoot event, which featured several of the RAF’s most enigmatic post-war jet-powered aircraft, including a famous Phantom which has only recently found a new home in the Midlands.
