Airfix 1/24 Hawker Typhoon in STOCK

Recommended Posts

I was quite late with my Hattons order, so it's just tough luck I suppose. Got the same email, says on or after 15th August.

Mind you, need to be patient to allow the aftermarket to respond....

I'm in the same boat as well !!

I pre-ordered mine on January 13 at GBP70.00 (less VAT for non Brits).

My 48th Spitfire Vb came in the other day and I asked Hattons if they could hold onto into until the Tiffy arrived - which they agreed to as they said it was expected within the next few days.

Let's see what ends up happening... the big Tiff was supposed to be my 44th Birthday present for June this year, it just may end up as a Fathers day gift this September (Aussie Dad's day)..

Cheers .. Dave.

Just got another email stating that Hattons has more than 10 in stock... I'm confused and it's quite late in the day where I am. I think I'll turn in and see what emails I get overnight...

Perhaps the big Tiff and that great looking Spit Vb are going to wing their way down under shortly - I know the postage is gonna kill me (if that doesn't - Mrs RL certainly will !!)

Cheers .. Dave

Update - just had a dialogue with Hattons who have said they have sufficient stock to fulfil pre-orders, hopefully dispatching today...

Let's wait to see what the Postie brings in the next day or two

Mine dropped through the letterbox about three minutes ago and after a cursory examination I'd say yes.

Now all I need is the kit!

You must a large letter box for the kit to drop through..

Update on my earlier, I'd just looked back through my emithers to see when I placed my order with e-Hattons, turns out it was on 19th Jan, anyway went back my new e-mails and lo, there was one from e-Hattons telling me my kit had been dispatched, the best bit is that they've charged me £70 which was the price when I ordered - there's much-grinning-on-the-wold I can tell you!

A very happy Wez

Well……..they came…and they went……The Big H got their delivery yesterday and were sold out by early this morning !. They hinted at the fact that initial deliveries were probably more limited than they had hoped for and I guess once they had fulfilled all of their pre-orders there were very few left but given the kit cost and the scale I am surprised at just how quickly these kits are flying out the door……Imagine if Airfix had actually produced it in 1:32 scale……I suspect demand would have been even higher. Anyway, I wish Airfix the very best of luck with this venture…..they deserve to do well, making a brave decision but at the same time taking the trouble with R&D to deliver a top quality product. Sure, I expect one or two minor issues as with any model kit but I have every confidence that this kit will measure up to the standards they have set themselves and the previous benchmark they set themselves with the release of the Gloster Javelin FAW.9/9R, Avro Lancaster, Douglas C-47A Skytrain et al. Time for others to take note and perhaps scale down their own release programme whilst focussing more effort on R&D and kit engineering.

I too can confirm that I had a note from Hattons stating that it would be mid' August or later - BUT! Just had a second e-mail stating that they had taken delivery and my card had been charged ... and that delivery is imminent - next few days or so.

Gave them a quick call, very nice lady explained that earlier e-mail was in error, and that a few folk had called for confirmation.

Seems we have a go? .................... Oh, and I ordered mine back end of April, so I'm guessing that everything ordered up until at least then is being honoured with a delivery.

To everyone waiting for Hattons I've recently had an email saying it's in stock and will be despatched ASAP, having earlier had the '15 August' message, just in case you have n't allhad it. I've only got to wait for it to get to Francenow, which can be extremely variable, still I chose to live here.

Hattons sent mine today apparently?

Also just spoke to them and they still have stock available that they can send out tomorrow, if anyone wants one for £80 + £2 postage

hope this helps....

No need. I'll go to Wonderland on Saturday and collect it in person.

Knock on the door this morning. 'Daddy' shouts my son. ' There's a man with a parcel at the door.'

I nearly fell down the stairs, opened the door to see the postman with a very small parcel. I'd won a world cup football!

At least my son is happy.

I ordered through Amazon. No sign of the promised email yet specifying a date.

The waiting continues.

I had the same sequence of 2 mails.

So I am guessing mine is underway; would be a bit cheeky to charge my card if they arent certain of when they have my goods.

Mine arrived from Lowestoft today, the postie very kindly left me a card:

"Parcel with neighbour at XXXXXXX, too large to post through letter box." This was, indeed correct

Ahhh. Why did I read this topic? What's happened? I checked the H*****'s website expecting them to have sold out and they hadn't. Foolishly (at that price) I couldn't resist and have ordered one. Hopefully delivered on Monday :)

Unfortunately for us Amazon orderers, I contacted them today, and they've not had any stock from Airfix! and the Lady who I spoke to said it would probably be around 4 weeks before they

had any at all!!
