 In an exclusive update from this significant project, we are pleased to bring you a first look at the test frames from the new Phantom tooling, which will further serve to increase the anticipation for this spectacular new model's eventual release. This important stage of the development process will allow the Airfix designers to assess the validity of the tooling block and give them the opportunity to see how the components actually go together from the modeller's perspective. They can then compile a review folder, making any necessary alterations or amendments before the model proceeds any further – a really significant stage in the production of any new model tooling and a time of great excitement for the Airfix team. Here are the Phantom FG.1 test frame images for your delectation:
