    Graham, what-if is everyrime unreal.... I do not know if it is too far judging according the number of orders we have got in one hour only. But, I accept that everybody has its own personal taste and that maybe we did not meet yours now.

    Dear gentlemen, Telford show is coming. We are giving the last touches to our "Telford double" - kits prepared for the show. Ve have contunued in "production" of Martin Baker MB-5 and we prepared twinseter MB-6. This project is pure what-if, aircraft never flew. But it was in the plans. We have prepared two boxes - Sky Ferret F. Mk. I day fighter and Night Ferret NF. Mk. I., both with three attractive camouflage schemes. Our thanks goes to Jacek "Jeremak" at Deviant Art for some inspiration. The second project for this year is Saunders Roe SR-53A. This project is a result of cooperation with Colin from FREIGHTDOG and we hope it is not the last one. Again, there are two boxings - Saunders Roe SR-53A prototypes and series production Sauders Roe Rocketeer F. Mk. I. Our stand will be at Guidelines tables as the last year, We will bring you more new kits, among them for instance Curtiss P-36A and P-36C or Avia CS-199. If everything goes well, we can expect also Hillson Praga E 114. Here are camouflages of Telford Specials...

    Thanks.for the feedback Patrice. It was our pleasure as usual to fulfill customer wish.

    Just to clear CS 199 - it was Czechoslovak variant of 109G-12, but not based on original airframes, all were built in Czechoslovakia. Some of them, in initial batch had German canopy as G-12. The rest (absolute majority) had canopy as our kit. It looks like Arado 96 canopy but, it was similar but another. Blown canopy on single seater S-199 - little interesting info - this blown canopy is in the factory drawings of Messerschmitt (Erla), preserved in our Technical museum archives. It was originally planned for production Bf 109 K and late g variants but war ended earlier and series production met Czechoslovak Avias. spaddad - I think we are on the right course...., to take all your money... :-)

    The first shots of our Avia CS-199, coming in October. http://www.modelarovo.cz/avia-cs-199-172-rijnova-novinka-kp/
  7. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Procopius - I have to ask Colin in November. If it is free, why not. I can promise we will publish press release after Telford to inform you about planned kits from Freightdog line. And about Hurricane.
  8. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Rabbit L. - in fact, they told me rockets for the first prototype and wing tip pods (not correct, I am lacking the right word) for the second one. I was just drawing... I will ask for the info. To the Freightdog - we had long interview with Colin last Telford. There is the first result. We based our kit on his resin one, made a lot of changes needed for injection production. Also parts for cockpit etc. were added. You will meet this plastic in Colin boxes later. And, it is not the last project we hope. These decals are also based on Colin artwork, we have to thank for providing it. This base will be used in another boxes. To the price of SR 53 and MB 6 - we recognised last year, that beer in UK is pretty expensive..... So some 50 pounds I think.., (joking) Expect some normal reasonable price cca 15GBP.
  9. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    The first box of SR-53 is ready - the prototypes.... We are working on What if box now. Stay tuned.... :-)

    Gene K - riveting is always problem. As the modelling public is divided into two parts - who like and doesn´t like rivets. We used RV base for MiGs thanks to the fact that we had nice chance to buy moulds. Well, we changed whole fuselage, added some parts, so we call these kits as "New Tools" even if it can be a little bit confusing. But it also helps to stop another confusion - not to mix this kit with original MiG-21MF by KP (old) released in nineties.... My opinion is, that our MiG-21 is a good base for quick and not problematic builds, ideal for collections of the type. Result gives satisfactory Fishbed. I am sure, that next Eduard release will cover much more minor differencies in between various series, will provide more wide pallette of weapons etc. So if you are really expert in Fishbeds like Gabor f. i., your choice is clear - wait for Eduard. But if you just want Fishbed in your collection, well you can take ours and will not make mistake. Anyway, thank you very much for your kind words addressed to KP/AZ and keep modelling. :-)

    Gentlemen, let me explain, what aircraft is our MB-6... We were inspired on one what if forum, where it is described together with some "operational history" and profiles.... See the photos of prototype..... Gene K - do you think that change of the kit from some 60 parts to 120 parts and new fuselage mean minor tweaks? Talking about our MiG-21 line.....
  12. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

  15. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Hi Roman, no Erla 109G will not be on sale @ eDay. Unfortunately. We hope in November, but we have some more complicated projects now - the line of 1/48 aircraft, which are time consuming a little bit. I think that the last deadline can be next Go Modelling in Vienna...
