Excellent, Paul - I am really looking forward to ordering mine! BTW, I've sent you an email on April 26th, did you get it?

Just ordered, don't know why I drug my feet and didn't do it earlier. Question though, did the AD-5 have any armor between the main gear? So what would be the best donor kit, the Trumpeter AD-4 or the AD-1J, assuming it has the armored belly? Thanks.

Chuck

The AD-5 armor was a bit different because of the relocation of some engine accessories. See http://tailhooktopic...ad-5-armor.html

Good morning Gents!

 

I have just been advised by Cartograf that our decals for the Navy AD-5 will be delayed another 2-3 weeks due to a glitch with their printing process, which they are working on.

 

I know a lot of you are itching to get to work on your model, so if you want us to ship it without the decals  we can start Monday.Decals will be mailed to you as soon as they arrive under separate cover at no additional charge. Just pm me, or shoot me an email to let me know .

At least they're owning up to the error and not sending you an imperfect product! :)

Thanks for the update, Paul

Hey Paul!

Tried to send you a PM, but was informed that you cannot receive more messages.
I'll take the conversion kit now, and wait for the decals.

Paul

No problems on my end, I'll wait for the decals.

My next build is going to be my second Fisher Sea Fury, so I'm in no rush.
