New in stock is the latest crop of releases from Airfix, including two newly tooled kits from the 2013 catalogue.
The Hawker Typhoon IB is priced at £7.49 in 1/72nd scale, and comprises 74 crisply moulded parts and markings for two RAF Typhoons operating from Eindhoven in 1944-45. This is the latest in Airfix’s programme of replacing old moulds, and is likely to be a very popular subject.
To mark the 70th anniversary of the Dambusters raid Airfix have retooled their popular Lancaster, and the first fruits of that scheme have also arrived. The new 1/72nd Dambusters Lancaster features 265 parts, including the Upkeep mine and a bomb trolley. It features two of the 19 aircraft that took part in the raid, those of F/L McCarthy and F/L Barlow, and retails at £26.99. This is a 10% saving off the RRP of £29.99. The Dambusters Lancaster is also available as a gift set including eight paints, brushes and cement. This kit includes the markings for W/C Guy Gibson, who led the raid. It is priced at £31.99.
Other arrivals from Airfix are a re-release 0f the 1/72nd MiG-29 Fulcrum, the Soviet/Russian fighter, with decals for Polish and Czech aircraft at £13.99, and a new variation on their recent 1/72nd Folland Gnat. This starter set includes markings for the RAF’s Yellowjacks aerobatic team, the forerunners of the Red Arrows, and is available for £7.49.
I hope to have the new Eduard Spitfire in stock later this week.
Please note that due to the new enforcement of postal restrictions introduced by Royal Mail I will not be including any item that contains paint or solvents for sale on the website. My apologies for that inconvenience, and I hope the situation will be resolved.
If you are using the online shop to purchase items, and I certainly hope you will be, please use the PayPal option for now if you are paying by credit or debit card (and remember that you do not need to have a PayPal account to do so). I hope to have direct card sales up and running by the end of the week or the beginning of next, and I will post updates as relevant.
Just a reminder that T7 Models will be present at the Plymouth Model Show this Saturday 20 April, trading from 10am-4.30pm. The regular Pool Market shop will be closed to facilitate this, but will be open again on Sunday 21 April. If you are at Plymouth, come and let me know what you think of the new site, and perhaps even buy a kit or two…
