On the Airfix pages for Telford, the rumors were correct.

Yeah I might have had a little accident when I saw that. Another very exciting large aircraft and I probably won't get a chance to build it any time soon! :blob:

Nice one Airfix. I will probably end up getting this one to sit alongside XH558 (when completed).
I hope they will provide multiple markings as I'd like to do Lusty Lindy (XL231).

Yes she is but I'm sure the kit could be modified with aftermarket parts to make a K2.

Glad it is a B2 and not a K2- still got the old Matchbox one in the stash.
