At the Fairford Airshow on Sunday(19th) I spoke to an airfix representative about the new 1/350th scale HMS Illustroius kit.

They had test shots of the sprues. Looks better than the older Dragon/Italeri Ticonderoga and Spruance kits.

It can be built as full hull or waterline. Aircraft included are Sea Harrier FR2, Harrier GR7/9, Sea King and Merlin

Release date is October.
