Silver Cloud Hawker P.1083 pre-orders
« on: February 12, 2009, 01:58:29 pm »
I will have around 15 to 20 Hawker P.1083 Supersonic Hunter conversion kits on sale for launch at Hudderfield (and more soon after). The conversion featured elsewhere includes 6 parts and only requires some simple surgery to the rear fuselage of the Revell Hunder F.6 kit (the FGA.9 can also be used, only red/white/blue roundels will need to be sourced elsewhere if you are building as a prototype).
As with the Avro 720, stockists will be limited to A2Zee and a few international webstores and price has been set at 10.99 (slightly higher than I hoped not so much due to the amount of resin needed, but more so the amount of rubber to make up the wing moulds with suitable frames to get them to cast well). Incuded with the conversion kit is a simple screen printed decal sheet with serials for WN470, all other decals coming from the donor Revell kit sheet.
For those who are attending the show at Huddersfield and would like to reserve one, please post here, and as with the 720 I'll put one or more aside for you.

One for me as well please Colin.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Thanks chaps, I don't mind selling out, I can get more cast up, and just realised that I printed 300 sets of decals instead of 250, so I've got plenty!

The party has only just begun, consider them put aside for when you need them!

Colin,

Any chance you'll be doing the set in 1/48th for the Academy kit?

Hi Colin

I've just noticed that the P.1083 conversion has vanished from your website, which is a bit of a bummer because I was hanging on to order the P.12 and another P.1083 together. :banghead:

Is the P.1083 still available and if not, are you planning on doing another run?

I sold the last P1083 at Avon, but will get a new batch in a couple of weeks. Don't worry, while people are willing to buy them, I'll keep making them!

Okay, cheers Colin. I'll order a P.12 now and wait for the P.1083s to come back in then.

Any sign of these P.1083 kits coming back in yet Colin? I'm on a circumstances-imposed buying halt at the moment, but I'll make an exception for another one of these. :thumbsup:

Ali at A2Zee is casting me more for SMW, so hopefully I will get some within the next two weeks.
