Airfix Valiant (72nd) and Sea Vixen (48th) - first sprue shots

Also on display at the Medway Modelling Club show in Gillingham were the first sprue shots of two new long-awaited Airfix kits. Trevor Snowden from Airfix was on hand to explain that he's already build up three of the new 72nd scale Valiant kits but that Airfix were still working on the fuselage/wing join which was proving a little problematic. The Valiant won't be available until 2011. The Sea Vixen should prove of interest to purists..according to Airfix's research among De Haviland archives and measuring the real machines the aircraft is some two foot shorter at 53ft. than most published info states.
