Yup. Good on Airfix. But Special Hobby is bringing out the Typhoon and both Tempest versions in 32nd. They said they'd follow this with a 32nd Sea Fury. These look like good kits. And then it seems like Zoukei-Mura will annonunce 32nd scale Ki-45 and Hs129. Man it's good times :D

Ja, I was quite happy with the Academy F-4 but taking a close look at the ZM kit pics, it looks like a great improvement. Amazing considering just how nice the Academy one actually is. I particularly like the "S". Last of the Navy F-4s with all the mods including slatted outer wings :D . I'm hoping they do their F-4K/M soon (RAF/RN)

I got the airfix 1/72 combo of a Sea Hurricaine and a Mk1 Swordfish.
It is the new tool Swordfish (usually sells for over R280-00 alone) and a new-ish tool Hurri. This one is a little bare but can be dresses up easly.
They come with decals for operation Tourch, the combo for only R200-00 :smt023 :smt023
Just had to get one for that price :wink:

I looked at it, it does seem to be more simple that the other new hurries they havem but atleast the kit does have wheelwells. One I did did not even have them!
I am very pleased with the Swordfish kit. I have wanted one for some time now as I dont see a 1/32 Trump or 1/48 Tam one in my future any time soon :(
They even give the jig to makit is with folded wings...very snazzy :smt023 :smt023

I'm using it as a filler in between the damn 1/48 Revell Mossie. This thing is a kit from hell. Nothing fits. Cant recall when last did I have to do so much sanding, cutting, shaping and filling. No wonder so many guys all over have binned it.

No, the hurricane is quite good, the Mosquito is terrible.
