It would appear that a 1/72 Vanguard in coming. Via their Facebook page.

CLS72-22 - the forthcoming Vickers Vanguard in 1:72nd scale - we have our first items back from our suppliers......The patterns are with the resin manufacturers with an 8 week delivery time anticipated, so were hopefully looking for a release date somewhere around Mid August or thereabouts for this beauty.....



Time to start putting my Loonies and Twoonies in my "Vanguard Jar". It won't be cheap.

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

It would be interesting to do a P-3 equivalent based upon the Vanguard.

If you use their L188 Electra as a guide it will be around 110.

It depends. I have set a bio-metric security system using my finger prints. And before you ask, even if you buy a kit from me, I always wipe it clean first and wear gloves.   :icon_ninja:

I am assuming you selecting the brand "Dexter" is not a coincidence.

Although I have three Gene Hooker vacuforms to build, I think I'll get one of these too.

You get a pass if it's an airliner due to physical size.
