I am sure it will probably be nice. Now I don't know what to do with my old CA kits. Thank goodness I did not go all out and get lots. I think I only have about 4 including single and two seaters.

Kinetic can probably keep that F-5 line going with all of the air forces that used it.

I think I will have to have a look at the Belcher sheet to see what I should start first. Maybe this is the kit I need to get my juices flowing again.

the 1/48 Jaguar new tool from Italeri and the ancient H-34 from revell will be nice to see.

Strange that DML did a 72nd Sea King when the Revell one is so nice?

Of course, the Airfix NH90 has me salivating for an RCAF Cormorant.

Hi Graeme

How you doing? As for that Jauuar by Italeri, I posted a reply to a thread on Z5 and I am speculating that it is the old ESCI kit so not a new tool. However I would like to be proven wrong. Yes Revell is reissuing the UH-34 but Italeri is issuing a NEW UH-34 supposedly scaled up from their 1/72nd kit. Should be nice. Revell's kit is very soft in the details.

As for the NH90, as far as I know, the RCAF does not use that helicopter but I am sure you meant the EH-101

Oh by the way, did you get my email last week?

supposedly it says new tool for the Jag on the box art somewhere.

I heard that all the H-34 moulds were destroyed. Well, good to hear that Italeri is having another crack at it - I think they put the "A" Team on the 48th choppers (at least compared to the AFV kits!)

Yep - NH90, must mean an EH-101 is in the works, right, RIGHT?!?

Negative, have not got any emails from you in some time.

Well I sure hope it is a new Jaguar. That would be nice.

As for the Revell H-34, I was mistaken, I meant to say the Wessex kit. Yes the moulds were destroyed for the H-34.

I believe it is Trumpeter that is releasing the EH-101 in 1/48. I recall some time ago that Panda was releasing the EH-101 in 1/48 but than that company folded. It was a division of Dragon.

As for the missing email, I sent you a note on Jan 25 to your hotmail address. I pulled it from this site.

Oohh. I didn't know about a 1/48 EH-101. I just assumed Airfix had one planned in the same way Italeri made use out of their Cormorant moulds.

Checked my hotmail and there was nothing there from you.

I'm a dweeb. Sorry about that. Airfix will probably be a more reasonably priced kit anyway.

I wonder what happened to that email. I will send a test email tonight and let you know. By the way the original email was about the V-22 schemes you did many years ago.

I wonder what happened to my email. Oh well. I did a search in the discussion group for the schemes and found the thread in 2007 but there were no pictures there only text. It must have been linked to your Shaw account?

I mentioned the CAF SAR scheme to Steve Sauve and I was going to show him your drawings but could not find them. Maybe he might print it in RT, who knows.

Thanks again.
