  1. Just received mine: it looks lovely; some really fine engraved panel lines. Can't wait to put it all together
  2. Funny that: aside from decals, I can't recall seeing any aftermarket stuff for Wingnut Wings kits and I doubt this will need any either. But I bet Scale Aircraft Conversions does a landing gear set for it!
  3. It would appear that the hordes of humanity thronging to purchase the SR.A1 kit has overwhelmed them: Monday evening I finally got a reply to say that it had been packed, ready for despatch, but according to the Royal Mail, it wasn't actually sent until 4pm this afternoon! Not a great start considering I paid for a "24 Hour" service. I'm thinking that "24 hour" refers to the amount of time it takes to do each step. Thankfully it's not the end of the world, but still annoying.
  4. Back in 2014, we were treated to the Uhlenhaut Coupe 'red' in the paddock at Goodwood, largely ignored but looking gorgeous on its transporter. I remember at the time thinking that it was likely the most valuable object I'd ever seen, apart from the Mona Lisa. But the following year both 'red' and 'blue' attended the Festival of Speed!
  5. Glad to hear you got through. I must admit that it's unusual for Hannants to be tardy, but as of 4pm today my "1st Class, tracked" order is still being packed, with no tracking number.
  6. Has anyone received on yet? I ordered Saturday but the big H says my order hasn't been updated since then; no reply to 3 emails today and their phones don't answer. All very strange...
  7. Funny that: I ordered mine yesterday and it arrived six months ago...
  8. It's listed as resin/metal. I suspect the Scalemates photo is generic.
  9. IIRC, all Metrovick jets were/were going to be named after gemstones.
  10. Further to my last of a few minutes ago, I pressed the button and ordered one. As @Stuondrums said above, it'll be fun to build.
  11. Great work Xtrakit for showing some imagination and not giving in to the mediocre. I shall certainly get one, irrespective of where on the globe I live. Mind you, those 'WhIf' schemes don't do it any favours: I always liked the look of this aircraft, having seen it at Staverton back when I were a lad. Bit it is, well, a bit portly-looking and that silver scheme must have hid that. Maybe silver is the new black?

    Cancelled !

    You'd probably be better off writing to Airfix than throwing a hissy fit here.
  13. Nice job: I do like turning 'roadgoing' kits into racers!
