Shelf-Oddity do a replacement set:  https://shelfoddity.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_65&product_id=171


Shelf Oddity do a MIND blowing PE set for the Bev, complete with loading ramps at the rear and all sorts of other good stuff.

And remember it's 1/144!  :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! :)

The Kalinin K-7 is apparently out, but prices are high.  I suspect it's the launch of their "Grounds for Divorce" range...

299.99 at the Big H https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/MM72-015?result-token=9EQld

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Needs longer wings really..............  ;D

And they can't REALLY have that in a box that proclaims 'MIKRO-Mir' surely? Micro it certainly isn't!

At that price, the advice regarding sex, travel and their mothers is firmly, loudly and insistently offered.

The price is to justify the 3 ft fibreglass wing.  No, sorry, and the Mikro Mir guys can insert it somewhere very painful.

I had the K7 on back order untill I found out how much the asking price was going to be.  :unsure:

I dunno about grounds for divorce, certainly grounds for a stiff talking to from the bank manager..................
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
