  6. Did you miss Airframe Album No 7-The Arado Ar 196 first time round? If so, you are in luck.

It's your last chance to save 50% on rare items that you promised yourself one day.(this includes some hard-to-get CMR Spitfires and Vampires) . The good news is that we have more coming in time for the weekend, and we have extended our new kit offer
