  1. I'm glad to hear that Neil is responding to someone at least. I don't have a problem with the delay on the kits, but I do have an issue with the sheer lack of communication. People have paid good money to reserve kits (in my case, it wasn't even made clear that I was reserving one - I honestly thought they were ready to be shipped), and deserve to be kept in the loop. Not doing so just creates confusion and bad feelings all round. Since I can no longer get a refund, I have no choice now but to wait it out and see what happens. Kev
  2. I placed an order late September last year, and my last communication with Neil was in early October. Nothing since, despite a couple of attempts. I've also been following along on Facebook. Discouraged, I just tried to get a refund via PayPal, but was declined due to being past the 180-day limit. Get a refund while you can, folks! Should AeroModl ever come good, you can always make your purchase then. Kev
  3. I’m pleased to announce that our latest eBook title, Building the Special Hobby Tempest Mk V in 1/32 Scale by Chuck Sawyer, is now available! In this book, Chuck undertakes a forensic examination of the Special Hobby Tempest Mk V kit, and uses the Barracuda resin nose upgrade set to enhance the model. He leads you through all the pitfalls of construction, and of integrating the resin nose and propellor into the kit. We’ve included tutorials on decanting spray cans for airbrushing, achieving a flawless, high-gloss base coat, and working with HGW’s Wet Transfer decals.
  4. Looks like John's original image for his Me 262 build has disappeared, but the forum software wouldn't let me update it with a working link, with a crazy error about it being too long since the comment was posted. Kev
  5. I'm quite late on this one, but I wanted to chime in and congratulate you on a really fine build. It's quite inspiring! Kev
  6. Thanks for the review, Julien! Note that we've just updated this title to version 1.1: Kev
  7. I've just updated this one to version 1.1: This entails just a few minor layout tweaks, and is a free download for all existing purchasers of the book. For new purchasers, we've temporarily reduced the price from 12 Australian dollars to just 10! The next 7 days only, so run over to the website and grab yourself a bargain! Most of our other books are currently discounted, too. Kev
  8. Howdy folks, I just wanted to announce that the latest Build Guide from KLP Publishing is now available. In this 95-page eBook, Jan Gabauer builds, paints, and weathers the new Revell 1/32 P-51D kit to produce an excellent rendition of Major Richard A. Peterson’s “Hurry Home Honey”. The book features not only Jan’s terrific build guide, but also artwork by Juanita Franzi, a review of the kit itself, and an extensive set of appendices covering applicable aftermarket products and reference works. The book can be purchased for download from o
  9. Do you have any photos of the finished model, Noel? Kev
  10. In this 66-page eBook, Jan Gabauer tackles the impressive mixed-media 1/32 scale Fw 189 kit from HpH Models. The majority of the kit parts are cast in polyurethane resin, augmented with turned metal and photo-etched parts, paint masks, and HGW ‘wet transfers’. A set of HGW ‘fabric’ seat belts is also included, making for a complex kit and a potentially challenging build. Jan navigates the complexities of the build with aplomb, offering tips for working with resin assemblies, and overcoming the particular challenges of this kit. The process is very instructive, and results are quite specta
