Default A new Amercom collection for the UK

I don't know if this has been picked up elsewhere but the Polish Flying Fortress series is now being trialled in the UK under the title Giant Warplane Collection. The following is a link to the UK website where subscriptions are being offered:-

www.giantwarplanecollection.com/?page_id=6

First 4 issues are the Lancaster, the B-17, the B-52 and the Vulcan.

I have the C-17, e-3, vulcan and sr-71 via evilbay. They aren't bad, especially the c-17 which is a RAF one and the sr-71.

Giant planes is a better title for the series than the polish 'bombers' series, considering three quarters of the ones I have purchased are not bombers!

This line has been available via eBay for some time and, while the models all seem to be copies of other brand products, they are fairly good. I like the PZL-37 and DO-17z----despite the latter's slightly droopy wings----and the Halifax, once one slips in a bit of glue to hold the part just between the wings on the undersides in place more firmly, is OK, too. The AC-130 is a tail-sitter but looks fine on its stand however the B-2 left something to be desired. At present, I continue to buy these models on a selective basis and have just gone for the F-111, which, I assume, is a scaled down copy of HM's version.
