It definitely makes sense to have a list of distributors available in our website and we used to have such.

Unfortunately, not so long ago, lukgraph company appeared and begun copying all our ideas, from website texts to product fonts, graphics, styles and layout elements.

As for former vendor from which we have used to order printing services - it was quite cheeky, you can imagine. I'm sure some of you have seen our clarification on that matter when people started recognizing our style among their products. Luckily, they are not able to achieve our product quality and customers realized that very soon. 

That being said, we became afraid of losing our distributors because of way they had been acting and we decided to remove distributor info in our website (yep, most probably they would go directly to them and try to sell their products using our ideas etc.). Gentlemen, I will share the ditributors list with you via PM. Apologies for this long story but it required clarification from our side.

Simon

Silver Wings are encouraging you to buy direct because you get the best price & a great service.  They perhaps don't want to say that on their website because it would not go down well with their distributors, who they are also trying to expand and use more.

 

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Send the e-mail to Simon.

said good :)

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. :)

I purchased a couple of SW kits from Coopermodels in the U.S. that were the same price as SW.

Obviously the shipping was less. I think he's no longer in business.

I've also purchased from SW direct with no problems.

 Now this is certainly good news to any Regia Aeronautica fan! Looks like I can now uncross those fingers and toes a RE-2000 on the way.

Highest Regards,

Gregory Jouette

Let me put it that way: don't worry about that ;)

Cool! I didn't realize the back window was different. Now I might have to buy both versions... :hmmm: Not to mention the Yak-9! I knew I shouldn't have promised the wife I wouldn't buy any more models...

I'm surprised.

 

Hannants in the UK sell Silver Wings kits with a very large mark-up. Very large indeed. Huge, in fact.

Four shall thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that then thou shalt proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number is reached, then lobbeth thou thy Holy hand grenade of Antioch towards thy foe who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it. Amen"

At last Reggiane! Well done from Silver wings.

Please just a little correction needed in italian caption for "Pantelleria" (the isle of Pantelleria ,  "Margana" aerodrome where Regia Aeronautica markings still survive in good preservation at the military entering gate as well as the cave hanger, perfectly restored and nowadays servicing by Italian Air Force) not "Pantelaria" and "Boccadifalco" (one of the early Palermo area airfields) not "Bocadifalko".

the 3D rendering 's looking nice I'm sure the real too.

Congrats Silver Wings! :frantic:

Those WWII Italian camouflage schemes are just brilliant.

 

Add an orange cowling and it gets even better!

 

Put me down for one.

I shot a few pics for my walkaround today

This is the swedish variant Re 2000/J 20. Don't know if the cockpit differed in any way from the earlier variant.

Well, I hope you will release alternate versions of the last releases. I am really interested in the Fokker and Reggiane but not in the Dutch and Italian versions.

 

Release a Finnish Fokker and a Hungarian Reggiane and I will buy them immediately!!!
