  4. If you have already placed a pre-orders with Tiger Hobbies for other products, these will be sorted and you will be contacted when goods arrive. So from now on Tiger Hobbies will no longer accept retail pre-orders, on our imported products in fact all products.

We use our retail site at full RRP ( for our imported products) as promotion to get new trade customers, which is working. It is the

  21. At this time the RAF have a total of 675 Aircraft of all types and including those in storage and reserves and includes 179 Grob Tutors, so not a lot. This number does not include AAC, RN and other Establishments including Test and Development, Link to the info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_active_United_Kingdom_military_aircraft There are 171 Aircraft slated to be got rid of by 2025, but this Gov is strapped for cash expect them removed quicker, so this defense cut if getting rid of about 25% of all RAF Airframes, in percentage terms possible the wo
