  1. My kit arrived from Lucky Model today. Well produced and detailed, well packaged and good value at about 36 quid posted to UK. Looks relatively simple.
  2. Ordered. 39 quid posted. What am, I, likely to get nailed for these days in terms, of customs/tax when it arrives? Been a few years, since I ordered from the far east. I assume 20% VAT at least.
  3. Sorry Victor. Did the doors open on the ground for subsequent two, seaters or was it the same. I want to model my Arrow with the bays open if it's possible to do so accurately Thanks Sean
  4. Mine arrived today. EBay 26 quid. Really impressive and the good news is that there are closed options for the bomb bays. It also has the open air intake and the air filter as, options. Two types of top nose deck, ejection ports and rear wheel fairing. I don't think you need to build the engine if you want to do it buttoned up. Looks very impressive in the box and is about the same price the AM kit was in the mid nineties when it arrived. I still rate that kit family (its about the model not the kit for me) and I have a pile. However, assuming this fits well, it's the best thing in 48th out th
  5. I, see. So the bay doors were there but did not open on the ground. I understand
  6. Thanks Victor. Will pick it up. One point. You mention no small bomb bays for single seater inboard of the wheel sponsoons. However you drawings seem to show them. Or am I misinterpreting so thing? . Cheers Sean
  7. Victor, can I ask, is your new profile book different than the MMP. vol or is it just the illustrations from the original? Cheers Sean
  8. I also have an, example of each kit, along with your excellent book. I assume a bit of scribing and drilling will sort the early confic. I have bought the new kit in order to build this version specifically.
  9. The reason was, the original B17 was considered a risk and the part count was kept low with no bb. It was a success and the viable boxing had a bomb bay added. So the original B17 did not have a bb interior
  10. Thanks for this sorry for late reapinse
  11. Quick question. On the early AFW 201 engine machines, were the four pipes fitted to the underside of the nacelle? The Afix kit is a bit vague here. I believe only one ECM plate was fitted between the stsrbouad nacelle only? Cheers in advance Sean
  12. So, as I had already made the, 201 engin cuts, it will be a machine with nose probe. Other than the fin reprofiling and nose thimble removal, are there any other lumps, and bumps on the Airfix kit that need removing for an AFW early B2? Thanks for the help guys. This old kit is going to get her very well and better than, expected
  13. Fantastic. I can look for this machine with a BS loaded. Thank you so much. Sean
