Hot off the press is Airfix's 2015 range. The kit that jumped out at me was this bad boy:
http://www.airfix.com/catalog/product/view/id/8412/category/1209/

That thing must be huge! Anyway, full range here:

Umm, just jumped on the old calculator. By my calculations this Mozzie comes in at 583mm long, wingspan 708mm!!

Some good stuff there. Pity I have to spend 125 quid before free shipping kicks in. Might have to go straight to the Mozzie! lol

Yeah I'm really tempted for a January (pre)order Jas. Depending how much I can get a set of tyres for the car. It's a shame when safety gets in the way of my modeling. lol No idea where I'd put the thing, have to be a wall hanger. But wow. Sounds delish! [biggrin]

Just doing some research, looks like they released a 1:24 version back in 2009 too. Just having a look now.

Oh dear,I can hear my wallet groaning already! [smile]

Some great looking models to look forward too. I will have to get a Shackleton and a couple of Beaufighters at least.

2015 is looking good.

Cheers,

Geoff.

Wow! So much detail in those 1:72 kits. [biggrin] I've never worked on an Airfix model, but I suppose it's time to start up a small stash... that is, until my savings go dry. [rofl]
