if you see one of these
« on: November 02, 2019, 12:44:34 PM »


Hi all


A big favour to ask, if in your travels you see one of these (yes I know as rare as hens teeth) could I ask you tp buy it and let me know and I will reimburse you costs.  Found this on eBay but need 8 more  :((

That's a re-popped Tamiya kit, so it might be worthwhile looking for the originals as well.

Hi just checking is your price point under a tenner?  Happy to look out for the kit though.

I know this is a bit pricey, but it is an option for you.

I suppose you could mold some copies from it if you needed more than one.

Or cast assembled parts of the first kit, say the fusalage, wings and tail, all cast to suit the number needed, using something cast in the middle - say out of wax, which when heated releases a space in the middle to lighten the weight.
