And a De Havilland Avro Lincoln (FM300).  :icon_crap:

Yes the De Havilland Lincoln was an entirely different beast based upon the enlarged Mosquito... ;)

Still waiting for a 1/48th scale injection moulded XP-67 Moonbat and an F-86H Sabre.

Yes, yes and yes. Also a Dash-7.


Yasssss... is there a BAe 146 kit? How about in 1/72?


Welch Models has three boxings. But it is GBP 121-123. So it's a pass for me.

Combat Kits do three, a different version too.

There is also one done by a German outfit, can't recall the name right now though.

But really it was the DH.101 Sabre Mosquito.

...No longer building scale models but years ago e-mailed Airfix to "cut steel" for 1/72 scale AVRO Manchester, unkindly told me never shocking given they'd released their excellent Lancaster B.II kit in 2013 me in 1990 building a vacuform & resin parts conversion of the ancient Matchbox B.I kit. Excellent build photos of Planet Model's half-decent resin Manchester kits up on the Internet, now impossible to find at one time had them all now wished I'd built them!

Since A&A has done the first two prototype HA-300s (3rd prototype had variable inlets and an afterburning engine), perhaps they can do a HAl HF-24 since that was definitely operational.

Whirlykits / Whirlybirds did but they ceased operations a few years ago.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I'm a bit surprised that none of the resin folks have done an S-61N fuselage conversion for a Sea King kit.

When will we be blessed with an F-86H in 1/48th scale?

I know, this seems like beating the proverbial dead horse but I have to ask.  Why beyond the 1/72nd scale F-86H and the OOP/OOB Collectaire 1/48th F-86H there is no normal injection moulded 1/48th scale F-86H for the rest of us to enjoy?
