The Mossie mould will probably have advanced design features which is the modern Airfix way so that FB Mk.VI or NF Mk.II type variants can follow at a later day with just the odd sprue change, rather than a totally different tooling!

 

But overall I'm pleased to see the positive comments over the new (slightly condensed) catalogue releases!

It looks good for just returning to the fold and stepping up to airbrushing

Looks a very good silver finish, which is difficult to attain

A very good worn finish and an interesting scheme.

Very good. That 75mm cannon looks bigger than I ever remembered especially when looking straight down the barrel!

@ Tweezers.

 

Just a point to note, it's a Merlin engined Wimpy (Wellington) upgrage not the Hallybag (Halifax) which itself needs a complete new tool not just an engine upgrade

It would seem the Scammells are gone as they are not mentioned in the 2021 releases and nothing has been said about them since the CAD images appeared in the 2020 Catalogue, they weren't even shown on the website. 

 

As you say IBG released the 2 tractor units plus the tank transporter at the same time and in my opinion were identical, even down to the profile of the images. I'm guessing that there was some agreement with IBG to licence produce the kits in the Red Box, but that would seem to have fallen through
