I second that, most other manufacturers do that (Hasegawa and Revell to name two).
It's nice that they do different versions of the same aircraft.

re the price of the Swordfish - this is a comprehensive kit and to my mind does warrant the nearly £20 price.

The new Messerschmitt 262A-1A A03088 is now available
https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/messerschm ... -1-48.html

I wonder why the link code has 1-48 in it instead of 1-72 :think:

The Airfix Boeing Fortress MK.III 1:72 A08018 is now available on the Airfix website.

Also, the Quickbuild RAF Red Arrows Hawk J6018, though still on pre-order on the Airfix website, is already available from online sellers such as Jadlam.

While I can only imagine it lives up to the standards of quality Airfix is renown for ... $50+ Canadian is a bit much for 1/72nd. At least my wallet.

I'll let you all have a look when mine arrives John. They've had a passport down there for a while waiting for this one.
