  1. And now an update on the Modelling News site.
  2. Hobbyeasy now have 002 ( the unpainted? )at £182.
  3. That's a little better, but for us in the UK I wonder how little the Mini Pound Sterling will be worth and what post-transition duties might be imposed on us next year? It could be that the painted version ordered and paid for this year might work out cheaper .
  4. I've just received an email from SpotModel with a 'bargain' pre-order price of €307.80 Shipping date is 26th December. Hobbyeasy @ £200 plus VAT plus shipping plus carrier's handling charge must be getting close to about £275?
  5. i noticed that MBK had some more stock in today ......... but almost all of it has gone already.
  6. i've seen reference to 'Shipping 15th October 2020'.
  7. Late last night the DHL tracker updated to say that my package was in the destination country. When i tried to check This morning the tracker was not working but at that very moment there was a knock at the door and there they were !

  10. Given 2020 hindsight (and a little patience) ....... it's now in stock at a UK retailer for £153 plus postage.
  11. Thread already running here:
  12. The first really successful use of disk brakes on cars would have been by Jaguar on their C Types at Le Mans in 1953.
  13. I might be a day early posting this progress report as the kit is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. The story so far: I ordered it from Plaza Japan on the night of Friday 15th. By Tuesday 19th it had been dispatched via Japan Post EMS service. It arrived in the Coventry UK the next day (20th) and then spent two days in customs. Since then it has been held at a local delivery office which I wrongly assumed was my local Royal Mail delivery office. Today I did some phoning around and discovered that it was being held at a Parcelforce de
  14. I see that Meng are bringing out a 1/12 version of the Denny Hulme & Ken Miles 1966 Shelby American Le Mans car . https://www.spotmodel.com/product_info.php?products_id=53136&language=en&utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=mail&utm_campaign=391 I'm looking forward to this release, however, I don't have an interest in Military models for which Meng seem to be known - are Meng's kits generally good?
