Sorry, the 'old EAP Scrappage scheme' has not recieved Government approval yet
  

Inserts 'pouty' smiley -----

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.

Thanks Colin, that would be a good start.  Mind you, I think I would need one of these new kits just to figure out how the old one should go together, I've tried it a couple of times and I'm a bit baffled as none of the parts seem to match up with anything.  I can see why you gave it a fresh start when you did the new kit masters.

Robert,

You too?

I keep on opening mine, delving through the zillions of bits of grey plastic, looking at the 'instructions', and then putting it all back in the bag again!  :unsure:

I suppose the instructions were for the EAP were they? Or perhaps Chris Gannon sub-contracted the job to Merlin?  :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! :)

Regards

Hi Chaps,
Any chance of being readsy for Southern Expo has now slipped away! However I hope to have a test cast of some of the parts on show, and the Skybolt conversion should still be ready.

Ohhaaa... how could I have missed that !????

What a nice kit .... any progress since Your last preview and a new release-date ?

So long, Deino

My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

3 months huh? That might give me enough time to hoard enough putty to finish just one of the Pegasus kits I have on the table  :rolleyes:

Is it too early to place an advance order for a couple of the resin kits when they're ready?

Decal printing slot is confirmed for July, so thats when EAP release will be!
Don't worry if your work bench is sitting idle, I will have something else coming out before then, another 1950's counterfactual project which I will let you know more above soon. You heard it here first....
