One to look out for. Slightly impractical with that undercarriage layout I would have thought, but what the heck  ;D

A load of Czechs are having a right "handbags at dawn" girly bitchfest on Britmodeller right now over the AZ/KP MiG 21.  Apparently, it's a warmed over RV kit.  Was getting quite heated.

Naturally, someone had to... stir the pot, shall we say?

In Hannant's New Arrivals

https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AZM7562

And simply to show an example of good value, especially when compared to the Hasegawa re-releases on the same Hannat's news release.

I've a pair of the re-released Spitfire Tr.9 on order, despite having a small stash of the original release, and a pair of the mk 16 lowback joypack.  If they added a set of canopies for the highback fuselages in the box, it'd be even better value.

I've ordered a box to do 3 aircraft of Foreign users. Bit of a nostalgia trip to back when I discovered after market transfers at BMW's back in the 60's and made a shelf full of the Airfix 109 G  ;D

Ordered this this morning. 3 Spitfires for 16.80, seems like a good idea to me  :thumbsup:

Hmmm, 3 in 1. Is that why it's a 'Joy Pack'? Does it come in both high and low back versions?

IIRC, you get one low back fuselage sprue and 3 highback.  I've only seen one sprue shot, I don't have the kit yet.  If that is indeed the case, my order is dropping to just the one.  And that's just for completeness sake.

I was very tempted but as I haven't had any good ideas for the 3 Spits I already have I couldn't see the point of getting 3 more.
Apart from the obvious joy of getting more kits for the stash that is.

The mk 16 Joypack is three mk IX kits plus a solitary lowback fuselage.  I have one for completeness sake.

In other news, Jan Polc of AZ has announced that their special kit for Telford is a 72nd Saunders Roe SR53.

Interesting.  Any idea of prices?

That should be good, anything would be an improvement on the ancient Airfix offering.
