Silver Cloud EAP arrival imminent
« on: July 31, 2010, 03:13:02 pm »
Photo etch arrived on friday, decals ready 1st week August and resin test casts made and test fitted successfully. If all goes to plan the production kit will be on sale by the end of August, and possibly Alistair at A2Zee will have a handful on sale at Elvington or at least a fully assembled example on display.
After that its on to the Telford kit project...

In answer to your questions Robert;

1) Can't say (secret)

2) Don't know

Sorry not very helpful! Target price for EAP is still around 35.00 but don't have final cost of casting until production can start.

Brief update, the EAP isn't quite ready yet, although I do hope to have most bits on display if Ali gets them to me (I'm not sure if Ali had it at Elvington, as I'm still on holiday). Delay in release should not be long, the canopy m0uld was giving some trouble, I believe this was solved but not in production yet.

Ali was at Elvington Colin, And he had the first one out of the mould with him and a few odd bits.   It looks rather tasty.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Yep, looked like a nice kit that will assemble easily - shame its out of my price range atm :(

Hi chaps, I'm expecting my first batch of EAP kits this week, ready for the Farnborough and Sutton Coldfield shows this weekend. Mail orders will be shipped out from next monday.
If anyone is attending the shows and would like to pre-order one (pay on the day) please email or post here, numbers in first batch will be limited and I'm travelling straight from Farnborough to Sutton Coldfield on saturday evening, so if I sell out at Farnborough I won't have any for sunday unless pre-ordered. Final price has been set at 35.00, I can take Paypal via website or card payments over the phone or at the shows.
Thanks
Colin

I'll be at Farnbrough for definate, but I'll have to see if I have the pennies. I'm trying to desperately save enough for Telford right now... :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Don't have any yet, the only one I have to hand is the one Ali at A2Zee put together in 2 hours for display at Elvington (some of the glueing is not pretty!), will put some up when I get them.
