Special Hobby Westland Whirlwind Mk 1

It looks like a great kit, I’d love to build 2 of them as wif’s, a pink PR version, and one as a Polish ground attack SQN aircraft


I just need to win a little bit in the lottery and maybe I could do a 3rd, a RAAF Clive Caldwell Darwin Defender type..

 

I need more money, more time and more talent!

Hi

    Not that far of being real, can't recall the exact number but the first few on the production line  ( 25 ? ) were going to be PR a/c but were converted back to fighter config before they left westlands 

   maybe even before they left the production line 

     cheers

It is up for preorder at Kitlinx for $94.

 

Huh, it's up to $113.27 after their 3% discount. Regular $141

Artscale 59.50 euros or $71.52.

Hannants  63 pounds regular 56.69 pre  about $87 or $77.

SH about $72

Hopefully a U.S. distributor won't have to pay huge shipping costs

so we can get them for something under $100.   :shrug:

I think you've got the UK price there Mike. Hannant's doesn't charge VAT on overseas orders so it should be less than that. 

 

I've got just under $81 CAD for my preorder from them.

They changed it! I checked before I posted and it was $94, now its $113. Snooze you lose I guess.

BTW, they bought a chunk of the MMD stuff, they have it listed for sale now.

No pics, it’s just a WIF that’s fermenting on my fermented potato juice beverage “enhanced” brain:beer4:
