Reaing the description makes me wonder what "detachable wing consoles" are  :-\  :unsure:

Gosh, a bargain, only £470!  :o :o

Only GBP376 if I buy it   ;D


That's 'cos you don't have to pay our VAT, but I guess your Customs may charge you duty etc.

Yeah, 20% less for us but you're right, there will be some duty to pay that's for sure.  Most expensive kit I've bought so far is the Blackbird (formerly Delta Aviation, formerly ID Models) 1/72 C-5 Galaxy, with postage it cost me just over C$300 and that was back 15 years ago. The Combat Models C-5 I got was a C$100 cheaper.

Probably just machine translation, most likely it simply means that the wings are detachable after assembly.

Modelsvit are re-releasing the Mirage 4000 as a bomb truck variant with extra sprues including drop tanks, laser guided bombs and tracking pod. Probably get at least one to go with my three fighter ones.

Hannants have the 225 in their New Arrivals. It's not the £521.99 price tag that throws me as much as they have 5+ in stock ?

They expect to sell 5 to 9 ?  :rolleyes:

I'll bet they're not on the usual Modelsvit shelves there, the box will be WAY too long!  :o
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! :)
