Colin from Freightdog Productions has supplied some information and images about the next releases from Freightdog Models and Silver Cloud:

With the release of the new AZ Model Spitfire MkXIV and Mk.18 kits in 1/72nd, we decided to reprint our original 'Brits Abroad' decals sheet (in 1/72nd only), which includes options for both types in immediate Post-War RAF service. We have also taken the opportunity to re-arrange the sheet and add an additional Spitfire Mk.IX option for the recent Airfix kit on the extra space we have made.
The sheet will be released shortly and is available to order now from our website, priced at £8.00.
Also due out around the same time is our latest 1/72nd Silver Cloud conversion set, for the DH Mosquito PR.I / B.IV Series I.

Designed for use with the Tamiya Mosquito B.IV (a Series II), this set includes completely new resin nacelles for the Merlin 21 engines unique to this variant, shorter span tailplanes, replacement 'smooth' tailwheel and decals for one option (a B.IV Series I) operated by 105 Sqn during May of 1942. Decal options for the PR.I will be covered seperately on a future Freightdog Mosquito Special decal sheet.

Lastly due out at the end of June will be another counterfactual conversion set, this time covering the projected all weather fighter version of the English Electric Canberra, known as the P.12. Designed for use with the 1/72nd Airfix B(I).8 base kit, the set includes a radar nose, twin rocket pack, and wingtip mounted Red Dean missiles. Sadly the project did not get into the air, however both the Red Dean's and rocket pack (twin Rapier Scorpion) were successfully tested on the Canberra.

Please see our website and newly created facebook page for further information.
