'Silver Cloud' resin Avro 720 at SMW
« on: November 12, 2008, 03:33:15 am »
After much effort by Alistair at A2Zee, he has so far managed to prise 3 only complete pre-production Avro 720s from their rubber moulds. Vacform canopies will only be done on thursday. Owing to the very fine nature of the detail parts and high failure rate, we really don't know if any will be available for sale yet, since one will be for display, and the other two will be the prizes for the 'Freightdog Award' this year. So for the half a dozen or so who expressed an interest (and this will be no more than a dozen available at best), I have your names don't worry, and I'll post up on thursday if we manage to get any ready for sale. Please understand if we don't its because Alistair can't spare the time with my complicated casting when he's also flat out getting his own stuff ready, which as his sole income makes SMW weekend very important for him! Will keep you posted.
Colin

Hello Colin

the Avro 720 is well underway, thanks for producing such a great kit. Knowing that there are so few of them at the moment-it has to be built!

look here for progress: http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,22086.0.html

cheers

Hi Colin

Good to meet up at Telford.

Can I just say that the moulding of the 720 looked absolutely first class. Well up there with the top boys.

PLEASE add me to the list for a kit.
