But they only had 10 to start with, and it says 'temporarily out of stock'. There's hope yet.

But note the kit doesn't include the Staggerwing............
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

The shape is simple so a scratchbuild would be straightforward.
The wheels/tires would be the only difficult part, however
itís probable that one could find something from the flying model
world that would work. All in it would a whole lot cheaper than
Ä150.00.
"Evil our grandsires were, our fathers worse;
And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."
