  1. Over on my website, I've published an article looking ahead to what's in store for KLP Publishing in 2022, including a sneak peek at some of our upcoming titles. Rather than reproduce that article, here, I'll just post the link to the original blog post for brevity's sake: https://www.klp.com.au/2021/12/20/klp-in-2022/ And for those of you who celebrate Christmas, my best wishes for the holiday season! Kev
  2. It should be, John. The pricing structure is loosely based on page count (obviously enough), and our largest title (567 pages) is only 22 Australian dollars. This one will definitely come in under that, and so is more likely to be in the $16 range - though that's not a guarantee or promise, of course! Kev
  3. I’m pleased to announce that we’ve just launched our end-of-year Christmas sale! By using the coupon code XMAS21 at checkout, you’ll receive 20% off the total value of your shopping cart. The sale runs until midnight on Christmas eve, December 24, so head on over to our webstore and grab yourselves a bargain! https://www.klp.com.au/shop/ Kev
  4. I’m pleased to announce that our next title will be Building the Italeri CF-104 Starfighter in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer. Those of you who are familiar with Chuck’s work, or purchased his previous KLP book, Building the Special Hobby Tempest Mk V in 1/32 Scale, will know what to expect from this book: a forensic examination of the kit, combined with clear and detailed notes on how to get the best out of it. Along with Chuck’s tremendous build, the book will also include a walkaround, by Gord McTaggart, of the CF-104 that currently resides at The Military Museum in Calgary Alberta, Canada. This comprises more than 100 photos! Our usual appendices featuring aftermarket and reference items will also make their customary appearance. The book is in the initial stages of development, but we’re hoping to be able to release it by the end of January. Stay tuned for more information as it comes to hand! The best way to do this is to subscribe to our blog, so that you’ll be notified by email whenever there’s a new post. Kev
  5. Our second most recent title, Building the Wingnut Wings Albatros D.Va in 1/32 Scale, by Karim Bibi, has only been available for about a month, but has already received a substantial update! One aspect of Karim’s build that isn’t really covered in the book is the rigging, so we’ve brought across the 12-page rigging tutorial from the AEG G.IV book, and incorporated it into the Albatros book. Consequently, the book moves to v1.1 and 197 pages! As always, this update is free to download for all existing purchasers, as long as you purchased it while logged into your account. If you didn’t, contact me directly to have this resolved. And if you haven’t created an account, do that first, and then get in touch. I will add the purchase to your account, and it will then be available to download from the Downloads section of your profile. And of course, new purchasers will always receive the latest version of any book they buy. Julien has already reviewed this one here on Britmodeller: Kev
  6. I’m pleased to announce that our latest Build Guide, Building the Revell Me 262B-1/U1 in 1/32 Scale, by John Kim, is now available! In this 246-page eBook, John builds the Revell 1/32 Me 262B-1/U1 kit to his usual excellent standard, offering plenty of hints and tips for construction and painting along the way. In our most detailed Build Guide yet, John combines the kit with some carefully selected aftermarket parts to produce a superb model that will serve as a great reference for your own builds. Along with John’s terrific build, we’ve also included some fabulous artwork by James Bentley, accompanied by some historical notes by Mark Proulx, and our usual appendices covering aftermarket and reference options. All this for just 16 Australian dollars! So hop on over to our webstore and grab your copy now. https://www.klp.com.au/product/building-the-revell-me-262b-1-u1-nachtjager-in-1-32-scale/ Kev
  7. Thanks for posting that list, Julien. Plenty more to come, hopefully! Kev
  8. Thank you, sir! 2022 should be our biggest year yet, in all senses of the word, and I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in once the dust settles after our move. Kev
  9. Thanks, John. In many ways I see our eBooks as living, evolving entities, rather than static 'things' - more like software than books, in a way. But there's an article on our website that goes into more detail about how the book updates work: https://www.klp.com.au/2021/10/18/free-book-updates/ Kev
  10. Just a quick note to thank Julien and the team for setting me up in the Vendors section here, which is available at the following link: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/forum/749-klp-publishing/ I'll be posting announcements, news and updates there from now on, though of course I will also respond to any questions or comments made here or elsewhere in the forums. Kev
  11. Thanks for the welcome, Julien - and thanks for setting this up! I've been a member here since 2007, so I go back to nearly the beginning, I guess. I have a few build threads lurking around in the archives too (assuming they're still there). Some folks may already be aware, but in October 2021, I took the decision to leave my day job and focus on KLP Publishing full-time. This means more new book releases more often, and there are some pretty cool plans already in place for 2022. Before that, though, I need to get through a major house move in mid-January, which I'm definitely not looking forward to! However, the new digs will be a much better base of operations not just for KLP, but my family too. So, stay tuned for more news and information as it comes to hand! I recommend subscribing to our blog for this, but I will also be posting news here going forward. https://www.klp.com.au/blog/ Kev
  12. I highly recommend creating an account, as it will give you easy access to all future updates, including for any other of our books that you might purchase. If you do (create an account), let me know, and I can assign your purchases to it. Kev
  13. Yes! When any of our books get updated, the latest version is automatically available to anyone who previously purchased it. The trick, though, is that you needed to be logged in to your account when you made the original purchase (or have kept the original email with the download link). Once an update is made available, you simply log in to your account and re-download the new version from the Downloads section of your profile. If you don't have an account (or weren't logged in to it when you made the original purchase), simply create one, and then contact me to let me know you'd like your previous purchases assigned to your account. Once that's done, you're good to go! Kev
  14. Thanks for the kind words! As it happens, this title has just been updated to v1.6, and is on sale for only 10 Australian dollars for the rest of this week. Kev
  15. We've just updated this one to v1.1, with the addition of a new 12-page rigging tutorial! Existing purchasers can download the update for free, while new purchasers will automatically get the latest version. https://www.klp.com.au/product/building-the-wingnut-wings-albatros-d-va-in-1-32-scale/ Kev

  17. I’m pleased to announce that our newest title, Building the Wingnut Wings Albatros D.Va in 1/32 Scale by Karim Bibi, is now available! In this 186-page eBook, Karim Bibi builds the Wingnut Wings 1/32 scale Albatros D.Va kit to his usual excellent standard, utilising a variety of aftermarket parts and decals, along with some scratch-building, to produce an award-winning model. Along with Karim’s terrific build, we’ve also included artwork by Ronny Bar, some historical notes by Greg VanWyndarden, and more than 90 walkaround photos of the Mercedes D.III engine by James Fahey—along with our usual appendices listing aftermarket and reference products. And as with all our books, should any updates be released, anyone who purchased a prior version gets lifetime free access to all subsequent updated versions! All new purchasers will of course receive the updated version automatically. And all this for just 15 Australian dollars! Those of you who have seen Karim’s previous book with KLP, Building the Wingnut Wings AEG G.IV Late in 1/32 Scale, will know what to expect from this one, and won’t be disappointed! Grab your copy now! Kev
  18. 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
  19. 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
