Not sure 'release' is the correct word? Maybe 'announced' would be better as the website says no stock for up to two weeks...unless they have had a massive sales run in the last hour between my getting this news and me looking on their site..?

Hi Alex

Welcome to Aeroscale - it's great to have you aboard.

Actually, you've put your finger right on it - Petr, who runs Modelimex, has e-mailed me to say that the sets sold out straight away due to the overwhelming demand! But don't worry, he's already on the case to get fresh stock. They do look stunning, don't they! I'm going to order some myself ready to tackle the TSR.2 later in the year.

All the best

Rowan,

Thanks for the welcome and update/clarification.

I thought RSS was the quickest way to get news but by the speed these items have sold out it seems it may not be!

Thanks
