I agree its a particular shame we have never had an HMS Warrior, its not going to happen though.  simply not enough people building plastic sailing ships, now you can argue there is not enough subject matter but I doubt they will ever invest in new tooling for it, as much as i would love them too.  you can extend this other calssic ships, liners for example.  not enough intrest.

An aircraft kit can be re boxed several times with diffrent decals and ring out the money from the tool.

 

best we can hop for is QE aircraft carrir for wich there is a huge calling, but Airfix would strugle to compete against Trumpeter in the ship market.

Hi all looking for some advice please.

i will soon be starting the 1:72 kit of the North American Mustang which is largely painted silver.

 

I dont often build aircraft but my normal process is to put down a coat of gloss varnish before I apply declals, however I am concerned this will make the silver paint go grey.

 

what are peoples advice on this please, any help appreciated

I absolutely want to see Airfix backing ship builders once again .  Everybody wants a Qeen Elizabeth carrier and that should have Airfix all over it.

when you look at what other companies produce they tend to be ships that were in action in the Pacific to maximise market intrest I guess.

i think thier is no point doing another Bismark ot KG5. But do some stuff others havent like an Altmark, that could be used in a diroma with Graf Spee, or HMS Warrior, that would suit Airfix down to the ground

we have some missing ocean liners too how about a  Lusitainia
