SWhat do you want as kits in 2019?

Beeing ex Fleet air arm and a maintainer on Buccaneer mk2 & wessex 5s I would love to see new kits of both   in 1/48.   800 & 845 sqdns perhaps ! !

Fleet air arm kits in general are a great insperation for myself. It takes some skill to land on a carrier going up and down as well as not staying in the same space, and at the speed.required  to catch the wires too.

Definitely Blackburn Buccaneer, either 1/72 and 1/48.

How about a Spitfire mk IX XIV or mk22. 

Got to be for me a couple of WW2 icons to go with the brilliant new tools from the same era that have been released recently:-

A 1/72 B29 Superfortress, how good would this look on the shelf with the same scale B17 from last year, with a C47 Skytrain in the middle................ &

A 1/48 Mitsubishi Zero, which would make a fantastic "Dogfight Doubles" partner for either of the two American reecent releases,the P51 Mustang or P40 Warhawk.................

Or one from cold war era:- (which has been mentioned by other posters)

A 1/72 Blackburn Buccaneer, would make a great pairing as an Ark Royal display with the superb RN Phantom Airfix gave us recently.

For me, here are a few things I would love to see Airfix release:

-New Tool 1/72

1) Handley Page Hampden

2) Bristol Beaufort

3) Westland Lysander

4) RAF ground equipment kit with Matador Tanker, Austin K2 Ambulance, Cole Crane, Etc. [Please no 1/76 posing as 1/72 ]


-Add ons in a few 1/72 new tool kits to create new kits

1) Swordfish Mk. II and III [Adding new bottom wings and ASW equipment/weaponry like rockets, radar, depth charges, and FIDO.

2) Gloster Sea Gladiator [Add a conversion sprew for the the dingy]

4) Bristol Beaufighter Mk. IF [Straight Tail Planes, Radar, Etc]


In the end though, thanks for all of the fantastic kits you have been providing us. The efforts you all are making to create high quality, well researched kits is appreciated. Keep up the good work!

I am not certain the RAF used Austin K2 ambulances. They were mainly Army issue, as far as I can find, so I'd like to put in a vote for the Albion AM463 ambulance instead! Wink

A professional modeller of railway subjects, and a reborn Airfix fan. Definitely into combat aircraft in service on all sides in the summer of 1940, but known to occasionally veer off into other interesting things!
