Well, as they have a RRP of circa £25, and include preprinted etched details, I'm afraid not.

However, at £14 they are a real bargain

never mind. I could not find a RRP, but worth the post to ask as they look quite good. 1/72 & 1/48 are not my favorite scales, but I think I could be tempted with these.

Maybe these kits could be considered for either a group build or another competition. I have seen quite a few on Ebay quite cheap.

I like the sound of another aircraft group build Snaps :D
I can vouch that the Do-335 builds into a very nice model indeed.
And I have the Black Widow in the stash.....

If you don't mind me asking, Morrigan. How much were those kits for you?

The Do 335 pfeil I found for NZ $10 in a second hand shop tucked in a shoebox with some paint, glue,brushes and a book on the SBD Dauntless (?!) but sans instructions and no box just a roughly cut piece from an end panel.
The Black widow I grabbed for us $22 from a Squadron sale.
