Just got the email. Hope it hits the Colonies quickly

Pre-order status and I just caved it. Along with the 262.

Did you use the Airfix USA website ? It is catatonic for me ....

Eduard already has a full PE treatment for it and I am thinking 1 OOB and 1 with some bling where useful.

Of course, if the Airfix/USA website doesn't wake up, I might as well stick with the two Classic Airframe kits I still have.

It will be several days before "that" email from Airfix/USA will arrive.

It looks too good a kit to miss though! :grin:

Already "out of stock" on the Airfix UK site. Hopefully they get more in quickly.

Well, I finally got a pre-order in at Airfix/USA. It seems their website does not like IE, went nicely when I tried Chrome.

So, I have 2 of them on pre-order, and one full set of Eduard PE -- my plan is one OOB, one with more detail. Then any left-over PE can go on one of the CA kits I still have in the stash. The CA kit was one of my favorite builds.

Anyway, won't see it until late October, plenty of time. We can have the GB sometime after.

Jadlam Racing (a reputable UK seller) still had stock this morning; postage to the US would be about £11 looking on their website

Well, my Eduard PE order is in the mail from Squadron.
My Xtrakit X48174 decal sheet is in the mail from Hannants.

So, Airfix USA, ball's in your court ....

Got an in-stock, then shipping notice, from Airfix/USA.

If it gets here by Tuesday, then one of them gets to go on holiday and be fondled.
