  2. Hi Now that we get close to the 100 years of the Royal air Force (1st of April, 1918), here is a RAF fighter pilot 25 years later, smoking his pipe (gears 1943 and later) The deck-chair frames are to assemble (9 pieces) with the addition of pivots in stretched sprues So far, this figure is available in 1/35 and 1/32 only. I'm looking for a photoetched supplier for the 1/48 and 1/72 scale versions, for the frames. All indication on a good suplier is welcome cheers Norbert
