Fairey Swordfish MkI Gift Set (A50133)

Quote:
At 19:25 on May 26th 1941, the Ark Royal launched its Fairey Swordfish torpedo bombers for an attack on the German battleship Bismarck.  In a final attack, almost in darkness at 21:05, a hit by a single torpedo from a Swordfish of 818 NAS (piloted by John Moffat) jammed Bismarck’s rudder and steering gear. Now unable to escape, Bismarck was sunk by HMS King George V and HMS Rodney on the following day.

Not sure if this has been available for a little while or not, but its marked as new in the catalogue, the Acrylic pot of 237 Desert Tan is in stock on Airfix.com, the Enamel version is not in stock at present (most of the new paints aren't listed yet).

Most of the new kits are now listed on the Airfix site, use the search option if you want find the pages and set up stock notifications.
Also of interest is that the Ford Fiesta WRC is being listed as Series 3 A03413, not the Series 5 from the catalogue.

Yes I mentioned the Zero in the 2011 thread and built it for SMW, and the Harrier has been out for a fair few years elsewhere.

Not 100% a new release since it's been a Modelzone exclusive for much of 2011, but now on general release is:
[url=http://www.airfix.com/airfix-products/gift-sets/aircraft-gift-sets/a50014-dogfight-double-gift-set--spitfire-mkvbmesserschmitt-bf109f-a50014/]1:48 Dogfight Double Gift Set - Spitfire MkVB/Messerschmitt Bf109F (A50014)
Image[/url]
Airfix's Twitter account said it'd be in stock on their website today (Friday), but so far it's just in stock on Hannants.

Also spotted the new boxart for the Chipmunk is now on the site (click to see bigger):

Two new Modelzone exclusives up for pre-order.

Channel Dash set containing a swordfish and spitfire for £24.99
http://www.modelzone.co.uk/model-kits/c ... tfire.html

And a Hawker Fury at £13.99 - Modelzone suggests it is 1/72 but looking at the reference number it looks like the 1/48 04103 Fury
