Tophe is going to love that.  As do I.

Probably a reissue but this seems to hold some interest. Looks like Miles had their own spares box to delve into:

Interest definitely, but at that price?  :o

The phrase 'Reasonably priced' and 'Hannants' rarely occur in the same sentence.........

I must admit when the Hannants hot news email comes through I put my sarcasm tinted spectacles on and say REALLY?? a lot at their stratospheric pricing, still it keeps Google in business as I look elsewhere to find it cheaper.

This may well be a re-issue, someones done a kit previously, but it's an interesting aircraft and I like the idea of transfers for the "colour" scheme.

That Kalinin K-12 is an all new tooling, he's planning to do the K-7 too! Also in the CAD stage is a 1/48th Fokker G.1 Reaper and the little 1/72nd Fairey gyrocoptrer thingy is one of Micro Mir's too.
