Have you dropped Paul an email? Fisher models always answer emails and their service is top notch.

The kit is not released yet. That's why!
They're waiting for the decals.

The kit arrived today! What a monster!!! The single seater is already large but the fat fuselage reinforces that "brute" truck look!

 

Beautiful casting and now I am sure Paul is an alien as I do not believe a human being can produce such incredibly clear large resin canopies!!! Incredible!

 

I also appreciated the additional small parts in the bags.

 

Thanks very much Paul!

 

Next step: the Navy one!

Glad you like it!

 

The Navy kit is done but the decals have yet to arrive and I must print labels and instruction manuals.We will put it up for order very soon but must get the last of the A-1E kits out so we can hopefully avoid the pile up we had with the first go-around. We're almost there!

 

Many thanks, 

 

Paul

Do not hurry Paul. The quality of such kits is what we are finally asking for.

 

This MUST take time even if we are impatient.

 

BTW, my other kit will be the "pregnant" version!
