Excellent new kit of this missing version of this iconic aircraft. The B.II had only ever been available as a conversion previously, now we have a complete kit without all the fuss. Well done Airfix, keep them coming!

This is great, and interesting too - as it's a Hercules powered MKII? Quite rare. Great job on the detailing Sir.

I'm currently building a replica of ND968G, which was with 460 Sq. She's a 48th Scale Hachette and I recently did a scale-comparison shot against my 72nd scale Airfix Lanc, which was one of my first builds. Here's how it turned-out...
