You're a brave man Iain. Having flown in  a couple of Andovers, I would love to have a model of one,,,but 1:32!!!!  Where would you put it when built?

S&M models have done a resin Andover in 1/72, but I considered it too expensive. All I want are representative models of the aircraft I've flown in and a 1/144th Andover would suit me fine, so hoping someone like Mikro Mir or Mark1 will do one.

I have to be honest, I'm seriously considering the same manufacturer's Saro Princess, although I doubt I have anywhere to store it once assembled...

Customs charges would be more than I usually pay for a kit !

Received mine and it looks very well thought out.  The big issue I see is the smoothing out of the 3d printing lines.  Done the first layer of filler and sanding - going to be more.  On the details - these might help....

 Arrived this morning , very nice.

 

Great service taking about a week from NZ to UK , was wondering if they were going to take a while when I read the warnings he gives about post on his website but no problems at all.

Yep, my 1/32 one arrived about a week ago and is very impressive.  The more you look the more you see the work he has put into producing them.  SUPER impressed, and happy to have one!
