Been a little quiet here lately, but things are progressing well with our latest project. Do you know what it is?

I reckon you are right Patrik. Australia did fly them.

Does this company have a UK distributor?

Not as far as I'm aware, I live in the UK and ordered their DH6 direct from Australia via their website. Took about a month to arrive, not bad as it was around Christmas!

Cheers, Paul

Good to know, thanks.  Did you get clobbered for import duties and costs at all?

No I didn't, although postage was a bit pricey, can't remember the exact cost as was about six months ago!

Cheers, Paul

Thanks.  Don't mind paying for postage.  It's when the shipping company sticks you one for additional import duty and VAT that gets me.

That looks very tempting, the stash is never going to get any smaller!

As well as helping with technical advice, Red Roo Models is a sort of defacto distributor. There's probably no advantage over ordering direct unless you want to buy some Red Roo decals or similar at the same time. Like HH, we only charge what Australia Post charges us.

Final prototype of the Fairey IIID. Goes together beautifully... (even if we do say so ourselves!) 39 3D printed parts and eight brass rods make up the kit. Final marking options have not been decided but will probably include all six A10 markings from its service in the RAAF.
