  1. Chris, all pre-ordered copies were mailed yesterday. Everyone in the UK should have theirs before Saturday.
  2. Our fourteenth Airframe Album title - The Bristol Beaufighter - A Detailed Guide To Bristol's Hard-Hitting Twin is now available and will be on sale from our stand in Hall 1 at Scale Modelworld over the weekend. We'll also have copies of our books in print and a few copies of a couple of titles that have been out of print for a while. If you need to stock up on GS paint and materials, Aizu and Tamiya tape and tools we've got plenty of those. We are clearing all our accessories with most items 40% off marked prices. Plus we will be selling off a number of kits acquired for our book titles. See you there.

    Aviation and Military Book Centre

    The business was sold to a company called Chapel Rowe Ltd in Preston. They are still trading as The Aviation & Military Book Centre and it is business as usual. Contact is Alan Parkinson. Tel no is 01772 701301. Hope this helps.
  4. If you are going to the Huddersfield Model Show on Sunday, drop by and see us. We've just replenished our stock of Mr Hobby paint, materials and Aizu tapes, plus you can get a copy of the reprinted Airframe & Miniature No 8 and preorder our revised Airframe Album title on the Sea Fury. It will also be your last chance to grab the only remaining copies of four books that have just gone out of print. See you there. http://www.huddersfieldscalemodelshow.co.uk/index.php
  5. Who's going to the Coventry show this Sunday? We've just expanded our accessories line and now have 70 Quickoost items available, initially for sale at shows though they will make it onto the website soon. Plus we have increased our paint and materials stock from Gunze. Our latest Airframe & Miniature book -The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Radial-engine versions - has just been announced and is now available to pre-order off the website. It will be available from the end of July. Plus we are reprinting Airframe & Miniature No 3 as it has been out of print for a year. See you there.
  6. Well done on selling out and letting us bask in the glory. Next AC is postponed until 2015 as we need to concentrate on AA and A&M series this year, plus we have another project cooking.. We'll most likely do only one AC a year in any event.
  7. Paul, drop me an email. Yes, Dave, I do remember. Just being deferential to the Britmodeller top table.
  8. I wonder how the Whirlwind would have performed with TEMA pods stuffed under its wings. Well done on top slot Colin and for being quick off the mark with the product. Paul Bradley, any sign of your Firefly book? And Global Moderator, many thanks for buying - you contributed to our best ever regional show.
  9. Airframe Album No 4-The Westland Whirlwind-A Detailed Guide To The RAF#s Twin-engine fighter is now at No 2 in the Hannants Hit Parade (top ten sellers). Thanks to everyone who has put us there. One more push and we can make it to Number One!

    Salisbury show

    Off to the IPMS Salisbury Show tomorrow morning. This will be the first public showing by us of our new Whirlwind book with a small bonus for purchasers. Plus we'll have a host of book/kit packages on offer at special prices. And to add to that a range of Gunze Mr Hobby paint and materials. Grab a bargain. See you there.
  11. Excellent. Royal Mail still works. Glad you all appear to like it. Many thanks for buying (and reviewing)
  12. Airframe Album No 4-The Westland Whirlwind-A Detailed Guide To The RAF’s Twin – engine Fighter by Richard A Franks is now available. All pre-ordered copies have shipped. Our pre-order offer of £2.00 off P&P, free scale plans and entry to our kit prize draw is still valid but only until midnight on Sunday. Airframe & Miniature No 2-The Hawker Typhoon Including the Hawker Tornado-A Complete Guide To The RAF’s Classic Ground-Attack Fighter by Richard A Franks is still available but there are very few copies left. Anyone wanting references to plan their build of the 1/24 Airfix Typhoon will need to move fast to avoid disappointment. We will be announcing our seventh Airframe & Miniature title very soon. We have upgraded our Hurricane Mk 1 resin set to include replacement ejector and fishtail exhausts at a revised price of only £5.50. We will also be carrying a selection of Gunze paint and materials at shows that we attend-next one will be Salisbury next weekend.
  13. Wasn't on the list but we'll add it.
  14. We are in two places at once again this Sunday. I will be manning the stand at the RAF Museum Hendon while Richard Franks will be showing our wares at the IPMS Gloucester show. Again, plenty of multibuy deals and a final opportunity to get your pre-order in for Airframe Album No 4.
  15. Hot on the heels of Trumpeter's Whirlwind kit we have breaking news regarding Airframe Album No 4. Airframe Album No 4 – The Westland Whirlwind-A Detailed Guide To The RAF’s Twin-engine Fighter by Richard A Franks will publish week commencing May 19th. We've got some cracking isometric drawings by our new artist Wojtek Sankowski showing off all the detail differences between variants. As an added bonus we are extending our pre-order postage offer to May 25th. What’s more we are making a set of 1/48 scale plans for the Whirlwind available for all customers who have pre-ordered a copy. These plans have been carefully crafted by Richard J Caruana and will be the perfect companion to both the book and your new Trumpeter Whirlwind kit. The Westland Whirlwind-A Detailed Guide To The RAF’s Twin-engine Fighter retails at £15.95 RRP. Order before May 25th and get £2.00 off post and packing, a chance to win a free kit PLUS a free set of scale plans. We will be taking pre-orders at the Hendon show this weekend.
