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

Size (of the stash) matters.

Is there any reference material available for this aircraft? A quick look on Google and Amazon has unearthed just a few photos, no walkarounds and no books.
I've been playing with the idea of going to Loughborough and taking a load of photos, but that wouldn't be before July...

Even with one wing off, you should be able to get lots of details. The few photos I've found are overviews. Wikipedia has this photo:

Should really be in a museum, shouldn't it? At least it hasn't been left to rot outside for twenty years.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

Here's the finished main parts;



Loosely assembled (ignore the step at forward fuselage, bits were not lined up when I took the picture);

Duncan,

You could at least show some enthusiasm.......  :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

As you didn't answer my question whether some parts could be used to enhance the old Pegasus kit and then seeing the parts, I guess I should change my question ---- can I trade-in my old Pegasus kit for this updated one -----  :wacko:

I hope it will be ready, but time will tell, still a lot to tie together.

Sorry, the 'old EAP Scrappage scheme' has not recieved Government approval yet (I daren't ask the wife!), but I've sure once its ready I can sell the metal parts seperately to suitably tart up your old one!

Full kit price is hopefully around 30.
