OzMods has released a 1/144 Bristol Mk 31 Freighter. This is a fully injected kit with clear injected, vacform (2 supplied) and decal canopy options. It also has a detailed flight deck (wait ‘till you see the panel!). Two boxings are in the initial release: OMKIT14418 with SAFE Air (New Zealand) and British United decals; and OMKIT14419 with RNZAF and RAF decals.

See details at www.ozmods-kits.com

Welcome aboard Greg. The Bristol Freighter looks interesting. I might have to look at getting this kit in the New Year.

Looks interesting.
I see the SAFE Air markings are for the aircraft that waddles around the paddock at Omaka.
Ardmore used to be littered with them too. I haven't been there since the 1990's - are any still there?

Can't beat an RNZAF machine, but that safe aircraft looks eye catching too.

Yep, NZ5911's still there looking a bit worse for wear; there was a rumour that MoTaT was going to take it, but it's in a bit of a state.

Mentioned on Britmodeller http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235012412-bristol-freighter/ that it is going to be going home to the Bristol Aero Collection.

Thanks Steve. Interesting that there're none in the UK when a quick google shows at least 5 in NZ.
2x Safe Air colours at Nelson & Omaka.
1x Camo at Ardmore
1x Camo at Awhitu - very well camouflaged now.
1x Camo at Waitomo - which you can rent out & sleep in.

The Bristol Collection website calling for donations is a little misleading regarding the state of the aircraft - surely they know the state of the aircraft?

I can't forget something I never knew. :P

So we're up to six. Anyone else got one tucked away?
