Duncan Cook A wonderfull litttle kit.
15. February 2014 at 18:16:00
Burkhard D Yes, looks very, very good in the box.
15. February 2014 at 21:32:57
Jamie Anderson Hi burkhard I am seriously considering this kit how does it compare to the trumpeter kit
15. February 2014 at 22:37:21
Burkhard D The Trumpeter kit has considerable shape issues, e.g around the tailpipes which are too far apart. Nicely detailed and molded but the shape isssues are a killer in my book.
The Airfix Lightning looks accurate and is the only kit correctly portraying the complex curvature of the wing leading edges. Surface detail so far is the finest among the recent new-tool Airfix kits.
15. February 2014 at 23:18:46
Jamie Anderson thanks burkhard did you know the F.2A is a hybrid lightning combines the airframe and weapons of the F.2 the fin of the F.3 and belly tank and wings of the F.6 I believe this is the greatest lightning variant ever produced this one is on my to build list
15. February 2014 at 23:31:12
Clifford Keesler I want the 1/48th scale one.

Bill Gilman New tooling in 1:72! No more TrumpyBoss/Matchbox/Frog kitbashes!! :)
20. December 2012 at 17:05:01
Dave Flitton Really? Has it been released? Where can I get one or two or three?
20. December 2012 at 17:14:29
Urban Gardini Could be an idea to sell off the Trumpy...
20. December 2012 at 17:23:01
Burkhard D The shape is looking right on, let's hope they found a less ham-fisted trenchdigger :)
20. December 2012 at 19:28:11
Bill Gilman Not released yet...they're saying sometime in 2013. Burkhard, if you've seen the most recent Airfix releases (Bf 109E-4, Skyhawk, Zero) you'd realize that the ham-fisted trenchdigger has already left the building. Each new release gets better and better, and the prices are extremely good. I'm loving this Airfix rebirth!
20. December 2012 at 19:55:54
Burkhard D Agreed, the Bf109E and he Skyhawk were okay, more so at that price :)

Burkhard D Judged by the (test?) shot depicted on the box, it looks like Airfix nicely reproduced the complex wing camber!
