I'm looking to find an old Airfix F-27 Aer Lingus kit, without paying an arm and a leg for one. Will pay, or swap.

Alternatively, I could find a later version and see if anyone does the decals for it, so if anyone has the old decal sheet laying around, or knows of a deal sheet set for this scheme, I'd be interested. I'd be interested in the Box as well.

I think that they are out of production now, Keith.

I may find one on my ramblings.

I had thought of selling my F-16XL kit as it seems pretty popular here but took another look at it and just might try to build it.

I have been lucky enough to pick up most of my grail kits but would love to find an Aurora Tucumcari and a Sealab
Also need to pick up one of the 72nd OSA missile boats and the new Star Destroyer from Revell/Zvesda.

Thanks for that. I'll just need to find an F-27 that suits.

My local model shop has one of these in at the moment. I didn't realise they were rare.
