Its always a pleasure receiving Alley Cats newsletters. This time around Alley Cat is releasing a engine set for the Airfix Valiant including air inlets, two 1/48 Tucano releases and a particular favorite of mine the re release of decals for orange post war Hellcats, yes orange. I believe most of the aircraft took part in 'Operation Crossroads', the testing of nuclear weapons at Bikini Atoll by the United States in 1946. Finally lets not forget the decal set for the Fairey Gannet in 1/72.

Alley Cat have announced some exciting releases for the new year. I am really looking forward to the Tucano and the Swift releases. Here's the news release:

Alley Cat continue their amazing series of conversion sets for the Airfix 1/24 Mosquito. The Mk XVIII 'Tse-Tse' were fitted with a Molins "6-pounder Class M" cannon, weighing 1,580 lb (716 kg) fitted with an automatic loader to allow both semi- or fully-automatic fire, in the nose, along with two .303 in (7.7 mm) sighting machine guns. The cannon was later deleted. The Air Ministry initially suspected that this variant would not work, but mock tests proved otherwise. Although the gun provided the Mosquito with yet more anti-shipping firepower for use against U-boats it required a steady, and hence vulnerable, approach-run to aim and fire the gun.
