Re: Bluebird Models

Can't get much more niche than a 1/72 Valiant! I'd have thought a Bluebird kit would sell better than that for a start.

Re: Bluebird Models

Just go the whole hog and talk to Airfix. They've been taking on subjects that we thought we'd never see in plastic - TSR2, Sea Vixen, Valiant and so on - it's British, it's a record breaker, every bit of media coverage of the real thing would 'sell' it for them... has to be worthy of their consider...

Re: broken Barracuda Project

Many years ago, in my museum days (but after Filching) I worked for a company that sourced warbirds for collectors to restore. I went to Syberia (no, I wasn't sent there) to look at a Ju87, which turned out to have landed vertically at about 400 mph, and we were flown out into 'no where land' in a ...
