Plenty of them about, but in 144 scale, not 148.  Try Googling 1:144 Aircraft, or doing the same on eBay.  I'd love a Vulcan in 144, but at 45...   :thumbsdown:  Too much for me.

Hi Tim, 

Try typing in  Revell  1/144   on  ebay or google    no   ebay you can narrow down your search  after initial  look to  non military.

Few on ebay less than 40    Tank  if you dont mind used  Vulcan for the layout   ;)

Well, 1/144 scale isn't too far from 1/148. Not sure which I need to divide by which to get an answer as to the difference, but 148/144 gives about 1.03, so that looks like 3% difference...
Hmm... Could I get away with a couple of Harriers (with UNIT markings) in the late 60's when they didn't appear till 1969... [Like me, in fact :)]
I just keep trying to get a little better
Said a little better than before

Oddly I came into possession of a couple of Corgi aircraft in 1:144 just yesterday - a lancaster and a flying fortress I think it was. They'd been left behind at work by someone who'd probably got them for set dressing (I work in a film school).

If anyone wants them and has something small to offer as a swap let me know. They're mint and boxed.

thanks for the tip will google 1/144 aircraft now and see what there is

i saw a layout on ebay with a sea plane on it, which is pretty cool.

why don't more people have airports on their layout? what on the surface railways go close to airports? preswick, gatwick, standsted, tyne/tees???

anyway my layout is small so wouldnt fit an airport on...

They're easy to obtain from just about any decent model shop.
I picked up one of these for just a few quid at an exhibition and I'm part way through building it;

Hi Tim,

Fleetline do a number of metal aircraft. Not as detailed as some of the 1/144 kits you get but they are always another option.

Web address is;  http://www.gemmodelrailways.co.uk/

This company does a range of commercial planes in 1:150 scale (as well as other scales so double check) that look good;

Dakota DC3 Air France, 1/144 scale, might suit someone modelling an earlier era than me!
