Quote from Peter at Az models posted today on AZ thread in

WW2 section of BM:

"Friends,
Our company never reported that C-150/180, DHC-1, P-36, K-102 be revoked.
In these models still gradually we work will only be later.
In September / October will DHC-1 and Ki-102nd
On these models we already have everything ready and made (boxes, decals, cabins).
Information is confused about because the news will have a new catalog numbers and the old ones are discarded.
Apology for moral and psychological problems with this mistake."

So cheers all round!

Paul

Appologies for the moral and psychological problems? That's gotta be a first from any company!

Great news. Since the lovely 1/48 scale Chipmunk is no longer available from Aeroclub, I'm looking forward to an accurate kit of this famous aircraft.

Hmmm will believe it when I see it.

The Chippie was a lovely aircraft to fly and I've been eagerly awaiting it's 'release' since Telford 2014. Won't hold my breath on this one.

Fingers crossed then, I'll be wanting several 1/72nd T.10's and will get a 1/48th one too.

Great news! The 1:72 version will probably be my most-anticipated kit of 2017, and I'll likely be down for one of the 1:48 version as well.

I can't wait for the 1/48 version myself... Put me down for half a dozen at least!!

 

Starting off with this one G-CGAO, followed by every RAF scheme ever used... :wub:

Being an ex cadet with 45 year old eyes, I'll be in for a few of the 48 scale ones, 72 are too small to see nowadays 😅

Fantastic!!!  But I don't get the 'T.30' designation for the UK and RCAF one!!!  The Uk based Civvy ones I'm sure were T.22.    Anyway I don't really care 'cos I am gonna get me some !!!

I'm in with a few. Makes me wanna ditch my almost completed Airfix kit, but I should complete it just for comparison sake. 

 

Now where's that lovely S&M decal sheet I purchased a while back. That'll keep me busy! 

 

Cheers.. Dave

I have a couple of friends who are going to be very happy campers. I'll join them when the 48th one arrives. But they're revised the Lily!! Great Days.
