Something at least to please Greg and light the cockles of his heard. 

Would have preferred to see a 1/48 Beaufort

I read the blog on my phone so the head-on drawing was a bit tricky to see, which meant I almost had a heart attack as I thought this was a Beaufort. Still, I know this will do very well!

1/48 Sea Fury is the only thing that really grabs my attention. :smiley:

Disappointing catalogue really, too much 1/48, no re-released 1/600 ships nor 1/76 AFVs, they could've at least bought out a new tool 1/72 Sopwith Camel and BAE Typhoon for the RAF set in stead of the old "clunkers" they've included. Great that Airfix has re-released the B-26 Maurauder kit along with the new F-4 and Whimpey.
There was rumors of a 1/24 scale Camel :P
Dollars again ::) ::)

New F-4 in 1/72 and the 1/48 Hunter are all that appeal to me.

Perhaps with the front camera window replaced by the guts of the designator pod?

Interesting idea - give the nose a laser-designator system and hang a couple of LGBs underneath plus maybe some updated engines so as to result in a Meteor in service in the 1980s or beyond.
