  1. Well I'm pretty happy with the new UK warehouse. Kinetic 1/48 Nesher shipped (with the Spring discount code) for £32. Hannants have it for sale at £65 + P&P... Jon
  2. I have two sets of 48-22 available in the UK, otherwise postage from US is $25! PM me if interested. Jon
  3. I don't know about that, but the videos I saw emphasised the production of the kit was in the UK (including moulding, boxes, packaging, etc.), but made no mention of the actual tooling. That element remains in Asia (India or China, I forget). The information was from Martin Ridge (Airfix Development Manager) and Chris Parker-Joy (designer of the 1/24 Spitfire). Jon
  4. That kit wasn't tooled in the UK. It was injected in the UK, as per recent Airfix interview on the Sprue Cutters Union podcast. Jon
  5. Well that's embarrassing for me! Thanks for the pointers - I've found them 🙂 Jon
  6. Can you post a link? I've looked at your site and can't find them... Jon
  7. This (and the lack of rivets) is precisely why I went for a non-AMK option and purchased a competing product. IMO, since the trio of MiG-31, Magister and Kfir kits, AMK have significantly dropped the ball in terms of moulding quality. I notice at least one builder of a pre-release of the AMK Mil Mi-8 on Facebook is having real issues with the kit. Jon
  8. Just finished the Tanmodel 1/48 RF-84F with Caracal Decals. Cheers Jon
  9. With the HK Models 1/48 B-25J now out and about, any plans to release this one soon? Thanks Jon
  10. Was the camouflage scheme on this webpage ever published? https://www.caracalmodels.com/references/cd48094/ Thanks Jon
  11. I too appreciate these efforts. Hannants had the Zvezda kit in stock last week. It sold out within a day. The biggest issue I have with the AMK kit is the lack of rivets and rough plastic, so I've bought one of the other options... Jon
