What's the FS595 number for that mauve? :devil:

 

But surreally, folks, the box art alone has me almost persuaded to buy, even though this subject is miles outside my field of interest.

 

John

It’s a bsc381 colour no796, closest FS is Fs17100

This does look nice. My initial suspicions on the completed model is that the white surround to the roundels should only be applied if doing the blue scheme, where the NMF and Mauve examples are standard type ‘D’ roundels with no thin white surround. I’m not sure if these are supplied on the decal sheet or just easily sourced elsewhere.
 

Can someone confirm this? If that’s the only tiny blemish, it’s hardly worth mentioning, but just included here for further discussion and accuracy’s sake. 
 

Cheers.. Dave

Yes, indeed, we made a mistake.😞
For the silver version there is not enough roundels without a white border... 🙄

I appreciate the honesty and am sure the modelling market are pleased you went the way you did, rather than making us try to find white surround decals. 
 

Cheers and congratulations on what appears to be a beautiful model.. Dave

They have been on sale at Jadlam for a few days now, though it seems only via their eBay store, not visible on their website

The downside is a 21 Euro shipping charge

So where have these got to?  I'm still waiting.

Dunno, but there have been quite a few more aerial attacks on Dnipro lately, so other demands on available logistics in and out of the city might be taking priority

At the moment, all pre-orders made before the New Year have been sent.
We are now starting to send orders to distributors.

Just been notified it's in stock at Hannants.

Ditto, my order for two is in, blue and NM (I'll have a think about a mauve one) :whistle:

Mine arrived yesterday from Jadlam. It’s lovely. Only comments are (a) no camera pod for the fin tip (easy add and optional) and (b) the orange (dayglo) markings for WG774 are given as yellow.

Got mine yesterday as well, +1 on the above comments, plus the interior/ 1:144 scale ejection seat which bears a passing resemblance to a MB MK3 - probably fine if you close the canopy as you won't see much through those tiny windows anyway, but a bit disappointing if you want to model the canopy open.
