Hi Kevin

I hope it doesn't come down to a head-to-head with Tanmodel...

All the best

Thanks and it is going to be a LONG wait for this one. How do you make a year go past faster. LOL

Nice one Kevin

I've got so used to Tim posting Airfix news before I do, I took it for granted he was the "culprit" this time!

All the best

Hi Tim

Thanks for posting the great news! I've been hoping Airfix would tackle the Blenheim for years - I just wish they'd done the Whirlwind before Trumpeter got to it...

So, what next in 1:48 from Airfix? A series of Beaufighters? That'd be tasty!

All the best

Rowan



Rowan,

While Tim does an awesome job and very much appreciated, you might want to have a look again at who posted this one.

Now this is a welcome release! Been waiting for years to build a Blenheim in my scale, one that I hope will be as good as all new Airfix moulds have been and equally affordable. Go on Airfix, do spoil us with latter variants also...please!

Yes I too hope they follow up with a Mk IV wonder what else they'll do in 1/48? Is a new tooled B-17 too much to ask?

YESSSS!!!

That's awesome news! Let's hope this is just the beginning of the line, because I would love to see a Mk. IV with finnish markings like it's standing in the museum in Tikkakoski. But anyway, this is a kit I will definatly get. Airfix has done some great kits over the past few years.

I think it is awesome news, I want 2018 to come sooner now. I built their 1/72 scale kits, which were nice, but in 1/48 scale should be great.
