We are working at the maximum speed but still we need extra few weeks to polish final details and prepare a smooth release. Thus we have to move Yakovlev's release date to the end of October. We hope that upon opening the box, you will understand why this additional time was needed. How to purchase the kit? Look for it at your favorite shop (or drop us an email if it's not there) or contact us directly at silverwings@silverwings.pl. All pre-orders for this kit received and pre-paid by October 20th noon - will be be discounted by 15%. Unlike our standard releases, the kit will be available in a limited number. This kit will cost around 125 EUR (depending on the currency rate) w/o shipping cost and applicable fee rates in respective countries. Simon and the Silver Wings Team

    Hi Mike, for 2018 and Q1/Q2 2019 it is "no" for this kit for many different reasons, mostly economical ones.

    That is correct, but like in many other cases - half of the existing documentation is worthless, sorry to say that. We have been beaten up too many times for trusting in soome well recognized publications, hence prefer now to be extra cautious. Yes Anthony, I would appreciate a PM regarding which publications would you recommend as the most reliable and comprehensive. Also some suggestions on particular versions (we all know not all of the dozens of versions are worth considering) would be much welcome (providing we want to use one fuselage covering as many countries/versions as possible). Thank you for your help Gentlemen. Simon

    Does anyone know how to turn on email notifications if someone replies in the topic I'm subscribed for? "Notify me of replies" is ON, still nothing comes.

    In September, the casting process begun on Friday. Decals, photo etched elements, boxes - all is in production. We are about to complete the instruction and few minor items. If all goes smooth, we will start accepting pre-orders in a week or two and then shortly announce the kit.

    We will combine both, and the downloadable content will be available directly from our server. This should help

    Hi Guys, I have just realized about this topic here. Next time you can ping me directly at silverwings@silverwings.pl. When it comes to the Texan, we dropped the idea as Kittyhawk's T-6 was released as plastic injected kit. This means, that despite poor accuracy, it will always sell better than even best resin kit. Unfortunately, this is how the market operates these days. In people's minds resin kits are harder to assembly and it is mostly related to the type of glue one needs to use in case of any resin kit (however, market offers new types of glue which doesn't bond immediately). Also the quality is always considered to be less more crisp from plastic kit. This one is not always true as we all know, but that is how mass psychology works. In the end, we end up with a decent resin kit, which unfortunately doesn't sell as well as even poorer plastic injected one. People are also afraid of resin kits' voulnerability to warmth, which is not true in case of the modern types of resin we use. From our perspective, Tiger Moth would be a great subject and we have been considering it for a long period of time. We would appreciate your suggestions regarding accurate documentation and selection of variants vs operating country. Kindly, please send your comments to silverwings@silverwings.pl. Cheers, Simon
