Recommended Posts

Clay More homepage (https://www.clay-more.com/) indicates as "new release" a 1/48th Royal Aircraft Factory FE8 multimedia kit.

But up until know except box art and profiles I haven't seen any picture from this company products... I'm therefore a bit suspicious. No address, no Facebook...

A good kit of the neglected FE8 would be very welcome. I once had the Lone Star vac but it was too crude to be worth attempting.

 

The box art shows FE8 7616 "2" of 41 Squadron, based at Abeele. It was flown by Lt S Hay, who had been with 41 Sqn since it was formed at Fort Rowner, Gosport, in October 1916. It was wrecked when he crashed on 13 February 1917, but I believe he survived. 

 

I collected a lot of FE8 photos and drawings because my great uncle Harold Jackson flew FE8 6437 with 41 Sqn. Some time ago I gave copies of a lot of FE8 information to John Adams and Brian Fawcett. Both were interested in producing kits but nothing came of it.

Has anyone heard anything about Clay-More?

I had bought two models (including the FE.8) some time ago and had them delivered, but now the website seems to be dead.

Update:

Tried also to mail them, comes back - the info address is also dead.
