1/72 or 1/48 Buccaneer , sorry Airfix , the Hunter leaves me a touch cold. 1/24 F6F is interesting.
One wishes Airfix would wise up a bit and realise that competing with Tamiya is futile. The modelling community will only pay big bucks for perfection . Note the storm over WNW Lancaster, £300 ? why not ?
How many 1/24 Coastal Mozzies sitting on shelves ? it's not a bad kit , its a fairly good one , just too expensive. Not that Tamiya are shifting that many 1/32 Mozzies over here , though that is mostly due to the massive mark up applied by the distributer.
Here is an idea for Airfix, by all means sell the whole kit but why not sell it in sections as well ? One always wishes the Tiffy had been sold as the engine and cockpit (£40-50) , so come on Airfix , sell three versions of the F6F , engine and cockpit with just enough fuselage and wing to hold it together , Full Wing and Fuselage but a dummy lump under the bonnet/hood and then the full beans kit. One will take a guess that Airfix will sell plenty of the dummy lump version but will then sell even more of the engine / cockpit AND the dummy lump.
Would love Airfix to get immaginative as well - how about getting rid of the aincient 1/24 Spit and replacing it with a superdetailed Engine and Cockpit.
Lastly, no-one makes a set of 1/72 and 1/48 seated pilots (yes Revell have a 1./72 set not currently in production) hands up everyone who wants a set of seated , masked pilots for jets and props , German, Japanese, US, UK , high quality injection moulding , something along the multipose line would do nicely.
