Wonder how soon a two-seater conversion will appear?  It's unlikely, but I'd love to also see a conversion appear for the proposed tandem-seat two-seater.

I can only hope that Airfix would consider including parts for the Malaysian and Swiss versions.

Aerocraft models have a T.Mk.7 conversion set planned for release Mar/Apr this year:




The conversion will be in resin and have a clear cast resin canopy and interior cockpit detail

I remember that kit. I did not see any references to a possible re-issue. Tooling may nolonger exist.

If you had a trawl around the ATF I'm sure you could find the answers to most of your Airfix questions, you just have to get around the crappy search engine in Tapatalk Forums.

A new molds Vulcan? Awesome. I hope they use a side mold for the intakes, so there won't be an obnoxious seam to deal with.

Notice the three 7-bomb clips there. Now I need to watch the video again that on SPF showing them loading a 10-bomb clip into a Vulcan.
