Hope they sort out the prop & spinner on the Spitfire as the one in the Xtrakit 22 is abysmal.

Sea Fury T20?  Not before time!  How long has the two seater been out?  5 years?  I got a German boxing with bits for the target tug back in 2007 and that was a T20.

  • Don't laugh at his mule
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.

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

just ordered the Finnish Anson and Pembroke from my lhs, the Anson ill build as per initial delivery methinks, the Pembroke, Swedish (altho the decals will be handy for the Ilmavoimat example i made from the German marked version of the kit)
heres hoping Special Hobby noted the bumps and camera panels specific to the airframes, iv a few pre devivery Hunting pics of the aircraft, and a recent Mallari magazine did a feature on the Pembroke too for anyone out there interested in building one?
