    NZ model shops

    Hi Ryan Can only speak for Auckland, and I don't know your transport arrangements, but here's my take: Hobbycity - Lunn Ave, East Auckland - lots of 1/72 and 1/48 Hasegawa kits at the mo, as well as Airfix/Academy/Trumpeter etc...but not that cheap, more RC-focused really, but does have a fair selection of plastic scale-modelling supplies etc..and the odd in-store specials on kits. Modelair - just off Dominion Road, Central-ish Auckland - real deal LHS scale-modelling hobby store - retail pricing [obviously], but knowledgeable friendly staff and some good in-store-only pricing on kits, decent supplies Stoker Models - in Greenlane - about 1km from Greenlane roundabout on State Highway One -quite diecast/car model focused, but does have a decent supply of aircraft kits - wide range of brands, and again, some good in-store pricing of kits Modelroom - in Papakura - outer Auckland - only bought from them online, but the owner is very friendly and knowledgeable, prices seem pretty decent, but haven't set foot in the shop so cannot really say much more. Hope this helps, PM m if you want more details? Aaron

    ICM 1/48th MIG-25 RBT already at HLJ (pre-order)

    Hobbyeasy has the kit at US53 [pre-order].

    CD72058 - B-52H Stratofortress

    They may well be. The greatest increase in size is at the intake end, and of course much more detail. They look much more 'meatier' than the kit engines.

    For Prowler fans

    They look very nice Jeffery. I purchased two sets of your Intruder intake/exhausts, very classy items!

    Hi Jonah Here are a few pics I took of the B-52H engine set I bought from Mike West/Lone Star a month or two back. Nice stuff. Hope they give you some idea of the quality.

    A very interesting post Raymond, thanks for taking the time to post - a useful insight into a kitmaker's perspective of buying/sales patterns. Cheers, Aaron
