But have you seen the price they are quoting for it £30.95 :wow: 737 is also "New" for the same price.

Is there anybody left at Hornby who can do IT :?:

I saw that and was just about to comment. The £30.95 was only on the email, clicking the link shows the correct price. I don't think there would be many takers if people who got the email did not double check the price

I reckon most regular aficionados of Airfix check the series number of a kit and know what kind of price it should be?

Not aware of any maker other then Airfix which uses such an obvious coding system which makes life so much easier to see where a kit fits in an overall range (even if I personally don't agree with a few of the kit positions :wink: )

14.99 is a lot of money to ask for those rather old and tired airliner kits. The only justification could be for the decals but a lot of airliner modellers (ahem, like yours truly) rarely build the scheme in the box anyway, so it gets really expensive if you want to buy some aftermarket decals as well. Luckily I just picked a few up from Hannants for 50p, so I might think about getting hold of these but I would rathe look for earlier boxings at a better price on eBay.

Thanks to a visit to the Frome Model Centre I have the MWD in front of me now.
At least 4 build options (Aeroscreens / full windscreen. No/partial/full tilt) spread over 1940 Army and 1943 RAF and each can be built with bonnet open and front wheels turned. You're going to love it.
