  1. Err, TSR2? According to Mr. Snowden, he could have been 'knocked over by a feather' when his then boss gave him both go ahead and budget and told to get it done. The new Vulcan had 'help' from Trevor Snowden, (Mr. Airfix) was told this on the Airfix stand at SMW2019. 24th Me 262? same place as the 24th bomber nose Mosquito.......though in the case of the latter the parts for both fighter and bomber were created at the same time, along with single and two stage Merlins............Trevor's STILL spitting nails!

  6. Oh, Oh, visions of Brummigums 'finest'................er, I give you the Austin (British Leyland) All agro err, sorry, Allegro You will note, of course, this was the way most were seen, when in the wild.........
  7. Ayup @Che Guava me owd fruit! Risking a 'train wreck' here, but, it's my considered! opinion that if somebody is trying to do nasty things to you, with things that a.) HURT or b.) go BOOM! close enough is good enough. Don't care how many official rules there are, if somebody is chucking bullets, bombs or shells in your general direction, grey's grey and blues blue, end of. Regarding your billious yellow, (great name, get it registered and sell the rights to games workshop!) my brain tells me (don't take too much notice, it lies!) Chromate Yellow and Chromate Green came into being from the late 1920's, early 1930's when U.S. aircraft production switched from primarily timber to duralamin, though I don't think the likes of the DC.1 and 2 used anything to 'protect' the metalwork. Know that some companies favored yellow over green and vice versa. Republic used both! at least on the P-47. Talking of heaving what are your thoughts of the true colour of Olive drab.....................
  8. Richard, when they left the factory, the wheel wells were painted in aluminium laquer. Depending on time and manpower and how many times it got 'bent' it may have been repainted to match the undersides, you takes your choice! Paul

    AIRFIX 2021

    Steve, far as I know the Katy is one of the first new kits in 35th. The due to be released Cromwell is an Airfix 35th new tool and from what I've read, it's a starter for IKEA flatpack, but it works!

    Err, I can answer that! Trevor Snowden.............but all he really wants is Airfix to put the already made parts into production and do the bomber version.....in 1/24th....
