Impressive. I'll have to have one of these. Still no let up from good old Airfix.

Looks very nice indeed :grin:

Wrong scale for me (days he who bought the 1/48 Walrus anyway :roll: :-D ) but it's only fair that other scales get their fair share of new toolings. Good to see Airfix still trying so can't complain at all 8-)

Looks nice, but I bet it'll be quite expensive.

It does look very nice but it is the wrong scale for me- I'll stick to the excellent NT 1/72 kits whenever I need to build a Blenheim.

The 1/72 blenheims are frustratingly ALMOST great kits! I just wish they'd get their act together on the clear bits. The canopy and turret frames on them are garbage! Maybe Rob Taurus will come to the rescue?

As for the 1/48 kit, as an occasional dabbler in 1/48 - I'll most likely be getting one.

Apparently the UK retail price will be £36.99. Export price with the club discount from the Airfix website will then be £27.75.

Looks very nice and it's good to see Airfix producing some great new quarter scale kits. Personally I'll build in just about any old scale depending upon the size of the prototype - alas a 1/48th twin such as this might be a little too big for my shelves.

Looks nice, and I like the IF most of all, but I'll pass.
I had I believe the entire Classic Airframes line of Blenheims and donated 'em to our club raffle years ago.
