Hi Tony,

How are you doing? I did not see the 1/350 scale F2-H Banshee's????? Any chance that they will hit the streets before Christmas?

Thanks,

Mark

Hello Mark,

No worries about the fate of the F2H Banshee, the model F2H2 is done and already in production, I am just waiting for the PE parts and the trick is done.
Best regards from Normandie,

Will these be the HC-4 Commando Seakings or the ASW variant, and if the former will the 1/700 versions be available at Telford along with the Fearless ?

Hello Geoff,

Yes, it will be the HC-4 Commando version of the Seaking (846 Squadron ). I will have sets ready in time for Telford along with the Wessex. If I have some luck, they will be available also both in 1/350 version.

Hello Geoff,

Price for 1/700 HMS Fearless will be around £60.00. We are guessing at the possibility to release HMS Intrepid soon after, as there some differences between the two ships. ( crane arrangement, etc...)
Decals will give anyway the possibilty to make any of them from the HMS Fearless box. LCUs and LCMs will be contained in the box too.
A dedicated British Army vehicle set is scheduled for early 2012 as some more Falklands War subjects...top secret for the moment !

Hi Jacques

Excellent news, and now i know what to budget for at SMW.

The Seakings and the modern british (well 80s) vehicles will be very handy, especially with the Orangehobby HMS Ocean now out. Additional Falklands War items is good news i look forward to when they are formally announced :thumbs_up_1: .

Cheers

Geoff

Hello Bjorn,

The 1/700 HMS Fearless will be first put on sale at Telford, and available the week after from L'Arsenal website or Tony Bunch ( L'Arsenal-USA ) in the USA.
We are considering releasing HMS Fearless as late in her career as there were many changes in the ship appearance.
For the rest of the program, it will be a warship, and nothing more will be said before the project will reach the non return point ! :cool_2: :cool_2: :big_grin:
Best regards from Normandie,
