Another good news for today!

We're going to present our first 1/48 aircraft kit - Fairey "Flycatcher" - at Scale Model World 2019 in Telford.
You can buy our new kit (as well as many other our kits and sets) at our stand on SMW-2019, at Hall 1, block 1F.

This year's Telford is a trial for us to see what UK scale modellers prefer. Because of this, the quantity of the model kits and aftermarket sets will be limited. We're not trying to create a hype, but explaining our cost/effectiveness and element of surprise limitations for our first year at Telford.

But anyway, we've tried to bring to the show our most complete goods assortment. So, You will meet at our stand M41 Bulldog, M45 Quadmount, KamAZ-5350, SA-22 Greyound, Su-24M, wide range of 1/144 WWII airplanes and really huge number of different aircraft wheels in all main scales.

See You at our stand!

And I got my hands on one today at Telford; happy!  At first glance looks very nice - will need some modelling (bit of flash is immediately obvious), & still on runners so absolutely no idea of fit yet.  But pinch me; an injection 1/48 Flycatcher!

Wow! That is an impressive looking kit and no aftermarket required. It's all in the box....and my! That engine. Looking forward to the WIPs.

 

I wonder if the promised 1/72 version is still on for January?

I was on the Armory stand selling them and have to say it is absolutely stunning. I particularly liked the etch Windscreen surround.

 

Needless to say they sold like hot cakes.

 

For those close to London there is a sectioned Jaguar engine in the Science Museum BTW.

 

Most will be very pleased at the upcoming subjects if you like silver biplanes!

I have to repeat what others have already said: the box art on these kits is sublime! I think the 'carrier' shot must be one of my favourites of all time :)
