Posted by Colin at the other Forum.

Good evening Gentlemen,

Making some progress towards my Telford release program, not all whif related but hopefully something to interest you.

Just sent new decal artwork to Fantasy Printshop for a revised RAF/RAE P.177R kit, which includes upgraded and new parts, including proposed forward canards. Iím also releasing the Ground Attack parts separately for anyone who has the kit already. Decals include some previously included in the original RAF kit released twelve years ago, and new ones covering Fighter and Ground Attack options in operational and test markings.  Iím waiting for canopies to arrive from Rob Taurus, if they donít arrive in time I might still release the kit and post canopies on afterwards.

Another revised re-issue will be the Hawker P.1109A with TSR2 testing markings, decals being for WW598 in an overall white colour scheme, and potentially one smaller whif set Iíll keep to myself for now as its last on the list to do and might not be ready.

Factual but with whif potential will be a 1/72 Lancaster ASR.III/GR.3 conversion for the Airfix kit, and an accurate Mk.2A Airborne Lifeboat to go with it. Following on from the success of my upgrades for very old kits, will be a Canberra B.(I)8 upgrade set for the Frog kit with an accurate gun pack, wing pylons and training bombs for all those patiently waiting in your stashes. These will fit on other Canberra kits including the new S&M B.6 kit that might be released at the show.

Last up from me will be an new Injection Moulded 1/72 Supermarine Seafire Mk.Ib kit produced in cooperation with  Kovozavody Prostejov/AZ Model, using their HQT mould Spitfire Mk.Vb base kit with resin parts and Fantasy Printshop decals included in the package.

Sharing my stand as usual will be Dave Little of Combat Kits, who having taken over the Magna range in 2017 will have a few reworked kits available. In 1/72 will be the Single and Twin engine Pioneers, whilst in 1/48 will be the Blackburn Firebrand TF.II and TF.5 (the Firebrand kits will be a small pre-production batch, very limited until production kit goes on sale next year). These kits are almost unrecognisable to their earlier Magna relatives, metal, resin and clear resin (in the Pioneers) now cast commercially, with Fantasy Printshop decals.  The kits have been re-worked by Phil Edwards, who mastered most of the AlleyCat range amongst others, and surface detail is up to a very high standard.
So that is what I hope will be ready, of course several factors could get in the way between now and the show, so I will keep my fingers crossed.

I can recommend Combat Kits completely.  I've got their upgraded Italieri Sea Harrier FRS.1, which Colin sells, and it is beautiful.

For us in North America, most likely via Colin's website Bill: https://www.freightdogmodels.co.uk/

Or via Scott Zeiwbak on Ebay who sells Colin's product: https://www.ebay.com/usr/rebelalpha

I suspect it will be available after Scale Modeling World which is November 10 & 11.

A P.1101 tandem trainer conversion, I think this will go very nicely with the P.1109B conversion in my stash and the recently re-released P.1083 wings I've ordered.

Hmm! even though I have the AMT RC-135V boxing, I might have to get one of those conversions.
