I've got the 1/72 scale release Greg --- and no it's not for sale.

BTW, can you tell me what the differences are between the inner and outer nacelles please.  The set I have only has two nacelles, I think I'm missing the inner nacelles.  This is/was a problem which the owner didn't address before he went out of business.

Your 1/72 version is safe, you know I am a 1/48 man.

Apart from the exhaust ports and extra intakes on the inner ones, I think the nacelles are identical:

Thanks Greg, now I'm not so itimidated with resin casting, I'll have a go at replicating one of the nacelles I do have and add the extra bits on.

Greg, if you could, can you take a couple of photos of the nacelles please and email them to me.  I have the 1/72 set but it only came with two nacelles, I think the ones I'm missing are the ones which have the additional air intake at the rear end (the set is buried in the stash and not easily available at the moment).  If that's all the difference it shouldn't be that hard to make up two new nacelles.
