Well I'm sold on the quality of these kits but I wondered if there was a UK distributor or will there be any presence at Scale Model World in November? If the answer is 'No' to both then so be it but I hate having to pay shipping charges so look for shows where I can at least avoid that aspect. At this point I am thinking along the lines of acquiring maybe a Demon and then maybe a Bulldog but it will be one kit at a time in view of the cost.
Thanks
Simon

You can order directly from SilverWIngs. Great service, and Simon is a very nice guy. Just ask him via PM or email. From Simon to Simon, you should get along. :)

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

You can buy from Hannants, and get 10% off a pre-order from a show, but it might be cheaper buying direct.

Ive got quite a few SW kits in the inventory, and found Andy is right, that in most cases, it is indeed cheaper just to order from Simon directly.

Hi Simon - I do stock Silver Wings kits, but do not always have them stock. With release of the PZL P 11, I will be ordering soon and would expect to have them in time for the Nats, or possibly Yeovilton. I am usually very competitive on price (cheaper than Hannants), but, until I place my order, cannot guarantee a price on any given kit (depends on exchange rates and level of discount). There will be some people on this forum who have bought from me (I trade as Aeromodeller Books). I am a cash only business (paym is a possible alternative). But PM me if you like to discuss further and perhaps give me an idea of which kits you are looking for. Regards, Paul
