In the latest edition of Workbench, we feature a host of exclusive images in support of a full update from the new Vickers Wellington Mk.IC project, including a piece of in-house digital art which will have many modellers and aviation enthusiasts saying ‘if only’.

 

We also have the second instalment in our reader supplied Messerschmitt Me 262 build feature and take a look at why the Supermarine Spitfire has always been amongst the most popular kits in any Airfix catalogue.

Good afternoon all,

 

It’s been some time since we discussed it here on the Forum, but we’re now able to share the Scalextric ARC BLE Protocol.

 

We’re aware that many of you are keen to get your hands on the information and we hope we can enable you to get the most out of your ARC powerbase.

 

If you’re interested in the info, please email me directly using forum@scalextric.com. If you could make it clear you’re after the ARC BLE Protocol and it shall be emailed to you privately.

The profanity filter is something I've discussed on the Forum before, but just to confirm. The profanity filter is not something we "outsource" - I have direct control over it and the words that are blocked. However, there is no "intelligent" part of the filter, when a word is detected that is on the list the post gets held (and I receive a notification). 

 

In most cases, this can lead to a post being held incorrectly. While I do appreciate this can be frustrating, I would rather cause that inconvenience than risk having these words used in an offensive manner on the Forum. The profanity filter has stopped certain members using these words offensively (some of which have been joked about in this thread), which to me proves its case.

 

I understand it is annoying when a post gets blocked, especially when you've spent time creating it. However, there doesn't have to be an inquest every time this happens. Once I've checked the post over it will be released to the thread, or you can always re-phrase your post and have it appear straight away.

 

I would also ask that you don't test the filter, it results in notifications and goes into the system as a blocked post.

Apologies wijnands, but I removed your topic. In the past, whenever politics has been discussed on the Forum, it hasn't ended well - if we could keep it to Airfix and the hobby itself that would be appreciated.

The latest edition of Aerodrome attempts to lift those winter blues for all self-respecting aviation enthusiasts and looks back at the blue skies and aerial action on display at last years Duxford Air Festival.

 

In what turned out to be an exceptional start to Duxford’s 2017 display season, we look at how the beautiful Sea Vixen graced the skies of Cambridgeshire in what may potentially be her final Airshow appearance ever and how the RAF and Armee de l’Air went head to head in a battle for Airshow supremacy.

 

We also have a photographic review featuring some of the other show highlights, as we look forward to an important summer for aviation in the UK.

The Engine Shed gets you right up-to-date with the Lord Nelson class. Announced in the 2018 Range Launch, these models are seen by many as the flagship for 2018 and collectors will be eagerly anticipating their release.

Apologies for the late reply.

 

I've brought this thread to the attention of our Development team and they've let me know that nothing has changed with our tyres - no changes have been made with their production on our end.

 

However, given your feedback, it is something we'll look into and keep in mind as we work on future models.

The current Airfix model range is the centre of attention in the latest edition of Workbench this week, as we take a closer look at several of the new kit announcements which feature additional parts, allowing modellers to build different versions of popular model releases. We also mark the welcome return of two much loved classic kits to the new Airfix line-up.
