I'm thinking that the New Tool B25 Mitchell might have a crew figure or two when it arrives; the paint list on T'Airfix website lists Flesh, whereas the list for the B17 (which I know has no crew provided) does not.....

Its confusing, even before the first B25 has been issued Airfix are announcing an alternative markings issue, same with the Sea Fury

Talking with other club members last night none of us can come up with what might be different in the Walrus Mk1 kit for a new number issue, nor for the Sea Fury, except some 'export' versions used a shorter tail hook, or none at all.

Might the armament options be different, especially in the Sea Fury. I suspect the Walrus is just a decal change. Note that there have been three different boxings of the 1/48 Hurricane kit and they all have the same plastic even though they are ostensibly sold as different versions.

The Hurricane was designed to have the parts for 3 versions included. That way it can be sold as 3 different variants with the appropriate decals. Airfix can always have a Hurricane in its range but the modeller can always make 3 different kits, all they need is decals for the others.
