Hi everyone, thanks for all the suggestions so far, some really good ones. I think the key to this is sets for kits that have not been completely superseded, so examples like the HS.125 nose and bits for Stranraer etc are along the lines I was hoping for, but doing something for a kit like the Frog/Hasegawa Lightning F.6 for example probably would not be worthwhile with the new Airfix kit available. Of course some new kits don't always supersede old ones, and short run kits have a limited availability life so although they may be better they might not be around long.

A set to better detail the Airfix SAM 2 Guideline kit. Missile detail and stencilling, tractor and trailer detail, and also the launcher.

Colin,

How about some updated engines for the Mbx HS125-600. I've seen a few people lamenting the lack of those and it's still the only HS125 kit around, I think.

Another thought - turbine engines to make the Islander BN 2T or Army variants.
