  1. Mine which arrived directly from China the other day didn’t have the two card end packing pieces and so maybe that’s something that MBK added for extra protection? I wanted to get at the instructions at the bottom and so I removed the two ‘troublesome’ clear sprues and turned the box upside down, slowly lifted off the bottom of the box, removed the instructions ( and the decals ) and simply put the bottom of the box back over the undisturbed grey tower of sprues.
  2. Despite opting for the $20USD shipping via Slow Boat From China, mine unexpectedly and surprisingly swiftly arrived on my doorstep in the UK yesterday…… ….. the slow boat was obviously steaming full ahead. I was truly excited when I saw what the knock on the door had brought me, but then really trepidatious about opening it to reveal canopy etc. damage. But no clear parts had been damaged in transit, there were however a small number of clear parts with those ‘cold front’ fine lines in them; they are most noticeable in the bomb aimer’s blisters, but you do have to be looking for them under the right lighting conditions for them to be annoying. I now have to pluck up courage to remove sprues from one side of the box in order to extract the instructions which I’m told are at the bottom of the box, whilst keeping the ability to get everything back in until the build……….
  3. I’ve just had an email from Jadlam to say that they have it back in stock.
  4. Ah ha ! That’s why I failed to find it anywhere …..
  5. Mines on pre-order from Jumblies, and they appear to be still taking pre-orders. Would someone please be kind enough to point me to Vincent’s review?
  6. Too bad that it’s “Out of stock”.
  7. When the kit eventually arrives and if there is damage, I’d be asking them to send any replacement parts by air.
  8. Sorry to hear that Gary; I hope that Border rectify things for you satisfactorily. Was that postal outer box a retailer’s box or Border’s box? I wonder if the ones shipped by slow boat will fare even worse?
  9. £94.99 pre-order at Jadlam: https://www.jadlamracingmodels.com/airfix-a17001-supermarine-spitfire-mk-ixc-1-24-plane-model-kit/
  10. Nigel has started the build !!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8aBkWTagok
  11. I see on BM that a customer in New Zealand who had ordered from Border’s Ali Express shop has just received theirs.
  12. How VERY exciting ! Hopefully general release won’t be too far off. I wonder if the example they are sending you will have the final instructions with it? Iirc the previous unboxing videos didn’t’.
  13. From Wednesday 9th March Netflix will be showing ‘The Bombardment’, based on the ill-fated raid by RAF Mosquitoes on the Gestapo HQ in Copenhagen. https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/81186240
