    That sounds better. I think all of them...:lol: But if you have all models of the same scale it is nice to compare the equipment dimensians.

    It would be good to see some more 'soft skinned' vehicles in 1/48th, to compliment the aircraft models. Or maybe aircraft models in 1/35th.........

    Five of them were/are available in1/48th. The Vampire and Venom from whoda ya call it, the expensive people! Then the Buccaneer from Airfix, in S2/S2B versions. The old Monogram Super Sabre was good, and will probably appear under the Revell lable, as was the Voodoo, ditto.
    I think someone like 'Hawk' or Aurora used to do a Dart or Dagger?
    For starters, I'd loke to see the following in 1/48th.
    Hudson
    Whitley
    Halifax (NOT the FM kit!)
    Stirling " " "
    Blenheim (still going from whosit?)
    Beaufort
    JU88A1
    Do17Z (apart from Hobbycraft)
    Jet Provost (any Mark)
    Bristol Bulldog (SMER Inpact now rare)
    Hawker Fury (Even old Airfix)
    JU87B (old Airfix would do)
    Bedford WW2 truck.
    Brit/US/German fuel bowsers.
    Harrier GR3(improved old Airfix would do)
    Tempest V
    Tempest II
    And in 1/32nd scale....
    Mosquito FBVI
    Mosquito BIV or XVI.
    Lightning F1 or F6 (NOT the Trumpeter kit!)
    P51B/C "" "" "" or old Revell!)
    Hurricane Mk1
    And ther's many more.....

    Well, the Buccaneer is OK, apart from an overscale control column. Although, I haven't got to the part where the fuselage halves, split HORIZONTALLY, need joining. That should be...er...interesting!
