Yeeeeessssss!!!! Thanks!

 

First Dora Wings GeeBee, then the King Cobra Racer, the DH 88 announced as well as a MC72 (but in resin IIRC) all in 1:48 - now this! All must-haves for me 🙂

Hope it sells well so more Schneider Racers (and others) will follow.

Oh dear - the Fantastic Plastic is in for another hiding! Have to have one - and any other Schneider Trophy aircraft that they care to produce!

 

And i hope that Lion engine will be available separately - there are a couple of scratch builds that could benefit from its presence ...

Daft question. Not being overly clued up on the S.5 variants, and having only seen the crate stuffed in the dark in London, what are the main differences between the S.5 and the S.5B? 

 

Also, will we be able to build either from the same boxing? 

 

Cheers,

You confuse the S-5 and the S-6.
  S-5 had no modifications.

possible confusion with the S.6 and S.6B ?, both of which an example is preserved.

 

That S.5 kit looks a beauty!

I'm sure if enough of us get the S.5 you will both get your wish. Personally I'm very happy to see this.

No Spitfire project can really be without them. Especially when you already have the Supermarine type 224 from Heritage.

So, no decals for the Royal Syldavian Air Force S-5 Inter-Sceptre, then? Shame...

 

I'll definitely have one of those to sit alongside my Testors and Frog S.6bs. If we really buy a lot, can we get a Gloster VI (and IV) and even a Macchi MC.72?

 

best,

M.

Let's all get on with our S.5 kits when they arrive first off and look forward to whatever other announcements follow later.
