In honour of the JBO, I've voted for HMS Belfast. It's also the only one I have in my stash (other than the Heller 1/400 Scharnhorst, but we aren't allowed Heller boxings now are we?)

I thought that if Airfix dun it, it was OK :? hence my inclusion of the Frog boxings :P

I've thinned down the options (eliminating those that have not received any votes), but unless there's a rush of interest (even though I've not cast my own vote yet) it's looking like a non-starter at the mo :cry:

That rule only applied whilst Humbrol Airfix was in administration, Ratch. When Airfix was rescued by Hornby, then it was Airfix kits and Heller boxings also put out by Airfix. However, due to people not sticking to these rules, in August it became Airfix boxings only. So, unless the box has the Airfix logo on it, then it cannot be made. So, unfortunately, Frog kits are out. The only exceptions are Dapol railway stuff and the Op Sealion Joint Diorama which was set up originally under the old rules i.e. any kit as long as Airfix also made it.

As for this build I have voted in the negative. I do have HMS Iron Duke and one or seventeen HMS Belfast's in the stash but I don't really fancy building them. :shock:

Well, I voted for Iron Duke but I would build Belfast if that was the choice- I have the kit and some PE I think.
