This company have a new website & a few more models under their belt now.  They are a short run company.  As well as the 1/144 DC-9's there are some releases in 1/48; a Focke Achgellis Fa 330, Roland D.IV (according to Hannants there are three more variants due) & two versions of the Macchi M.5 flying boat.

There are a few kits on their 'preparing' page, another version of the 1/144 DC-9 in DHL Colours, 1/48 Ansaldo SVA, 1/32 Bachem Natter & a 1/48 BAC Strikemaster.  The Strikemaster might cause some hearts to beat quicker, the Aeroclub kit goes for silly money on ebay, there's one at the moment asking for £60 & some have gone for over £150.

Are the Whitleys a repop?  I remember one of the older companies releasing them a while back.

Frog did quite a good one yonks ago, a Mk V IIRC, and Contrail did a couple of vacform ones that weren't so good. It was re-done after the Novo buy-out of the moulds and later produced by a bunch called 'Modelcraft'.

Review on Modelversium.  It's quite favourable, possibly minor shape issues with the nose underside and rudder, otherwise gets a good bill of health.  On the pricey side, but you get some resin bits.

Hm, it'll be interesting to see how they do that.

It'd need a -50 fuselage with myriad score markings on the inside to get the various lengths right and two different sets of wings. Or else one set with variable inserts at different points. A tad pricey for a 1/144 DC9 though, and what do you do with all the bits left over, especially if you build the -10?

If It's like the issue I saw in a magazine you get a -50 fuse and a -30 fuse plus two types of engine nacelles IIRC.
