    Last decal touches, construction for screen printing. Decals go to the printers in the morning...

    So boys, Mr. Reinis just finished his work on boxart for Comet. Grosvenor House like real thing. And you are the first who can see it.
  3. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Nice to look at your tips... But, we will keep the project in secret now. I have got info from production, we can expect 109K and Spit Vc in June if everything goes OK.

    Dear gentlemen, Comet project is closed now for any other changes. I was trying to react to all your comments and references. I hope that the result will be fine for you. It was for the first time when I had so big team of consultants. It was fine job for me, enjoying it. TELFORD - definitely we will continue on FD-2 in 1/48 scale. And we have found hot candidate for 1/72 "Telford special", British aircraft I think never kitted before even if everybody knows it. But, wait a little bit. We are also working on Cmelak - Czechoslovak "agrobomber" and after this plane Cessnas are coming in the end. So, time to close office and go to the pub for some beers with my friends and refresh a little bit. Enjoy your weekend. Jan

    Hi gentlemen, here is the last Comet boxing. I would like to ask you for a little help - the RAF example - can you check it as I do not have references big enough. Thank you.

    Gentlemen, work is in progress also on our "Gustav Trainer" - Bf 109G-12... Selected camo schemes are in the link. Text in Czech, but pictures in English. :-) http://www.modelarovo.cz/messerschmitt-bf-109g-12-az-model-vybrane-kamuflaze/

    Max Headroom - nice spit of 312 squadron... Congrats. We have decided the first two box of Mk. Vc until now - we have to please Ed Russell and his band, so the first box will contain Australian spits, I am collecting references now. The second one will contain something not so much common - Spitfire Vc with four cannons. Later will come box of Czechoslovak pilots in RAF, UK Aces, MTO, US spitfires..... Beard - naval spits is a problem - this variant need new parts, big ones as fuselage and if we will go into Navy, it will take some time for sure. Ask me in Telford for more info. TELFORD 2018 - we are at the point to choose one of our projects for this year show. We want to present something for collectors of bigger scale and do 1/48 scale kit. There are two candidates in the same stage of preparation - FD-2 and SR-53. Both very interesting planes. Which one do you prefer? I will count votes very carefully. Next week we will release our list of the new items for March, so stay tuned please. Have a nice evening. Jan

    upnorth - telling true, I had to look at wikipedia to find out what is Enstrom 480B..... :-) Nice helo anyway. But..., we have full release schedule up to the end of 2018 and moreless to June 2019, life is too quick in our offices. Spit Vc - we are very very close gents, we want it as summer sunshine surprise for you. And Spit XII is more and more discussed here.... (I am not promising, just informing you about the talks) upnorth - do you live in Brno? I am travelling there often, what about some beers in Air Café?

    Gentlemen, as I know there is a company working on Buccaneers in both scales. I do not remeber the name, but the company is Turkish I think. So stay tuned.
  10. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    we are looking for the colour as close as possible from Humbrol range we use as a reference now. There will be call out on the box, don´t be afraid... :-)
  11. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    So gentlemen.... I just finished all changes in the second boxing of Comet..... All Silver variants were refused, I do not know where the idea of Silver finish was born... :-) Prototype is in the Autumn Mist Pale Green overall with comet on one side only. Another propeller spinners - pointed and another propellers - Hamilton Standard. (All conversion parts are in the kit, including new fuselage nose without light). The Burberry - we decided to use Burberry house colours, taken from the sample posted here via link. I plan to include logo with Golden knight into decal sheet. But my opinion is that it was White. The Orphan - hard game, but looking at BW photos is everytime kind of magic.... In the end we decided, that aircraft was painted in Pale Green (Autumn Mist) colour with Light Blue registration. I designed profile, converted it into Grey shades and we were checking the shades and comparing with photographs. Maybe we are very close, maybe very far from the reality.... I would like to thank you again, it was nice job to work together even if we are hudreds kilometers far one to each other. The last boxing will include "Salazar" from Portugal, RAF Silver bird and French H-609 in Red. If you have some information about French bird, please share it.

    Gentlemen, this is so amazing, in fact we are all working on the kit. Nice. Thank you so much.
  13. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Gentlemen... I have read your comments and (if I understood all clearly) changed the design of Burberry Comet. Can you look at the picture and comment on it? We have some days until the decals will leave AZ to the printer... Corrected Burberry is here -
  14. KP/AZ central discussion, questions & answers

    Gentlemen, I am getting lost in all that info about Comet. I will make another box preview and will ask for new wave of comments. And BIG thank you. Jan

    Discussion still open, thank you. stevenz - yes it is planned to include neccessary decals as a bonus into decal sheet. With Castrol logos... :-) This kind of discussion is very useful, thanks.
