Nice one Jean-Luc!

The new Seafire and Lynx look great. It's very neat how they've handled the former's folding wings, and it looks like the sit of the canopy in the open position might be a lot better than in their FR46/FR47. It's nice to see the Angel Interceptor again. I built that when it was first released in the '60s. We'll have to get it for ModelGeek.

All the best

Great interview Jean-Luc.
Very interesting to see the new kits.

Didn't build it in the 60's, but the 70's, and I loved that kit, even if it was brush painted (badly) .

Hi Andy

Yes, mine was badly brush painted too - and that "A" on the bottom really had me struggling! Where was Mal with his Miracle Masks when we needed him!

All the best
