I don't think that's the one, those look like a fact file collection of various aircraft, not the build up model

Hi luigione :) as Alan says a "great" find the detail is very good and with "working features" is a must have but at £9.00 a pop it's beyond my reach :(

I hope that this test is successful as I am really looking forward to doing this Kit.

I expect a good time for going live is the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain next year. By then the Routemaster would have ended and I can just about afford it.

It looks similar to the Zero in Japan in the stand and movements. Maybe it’s a new thread and Germany will do a Messerschmitt?

It's a test, I received an email from Eaglemoss

Dear subscriber,

Thank you for supporting Spitfire MkIa. The limited four-issue run has now come to an end, and we will be looking at the level of interest before making a decision about whether the collection will be launched nationally in the near future.

I got the same email, not even the test parts to play around with.
On a positive note though, I managed to pick up a complete hachette stuka partwork from Ebay germany for the princely sum of 40 Euros.

Yep, spent the weekend sorting out the damaged parts, not too bad a job, luckily nothing serious

I also found an eBay bargain, picked up all 120 issues of “Build the Blackpearl” for $100
Still haven’t built it yet.

Yep, at least half of my partworks have been found on Ebay, good bargains to be had if you're patient.
