      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Whether any of these new kits will ever appear is unclear.
    They were bought out and undergoing restructuring in March.

    One with paint and glue.The other without.

    Possible bad news,a post on the Britmodeller forum has link to documents which seems to suggest they have gone into receivership.

    If the photos used are correct the Porsche 934 looks to be way ahead of the Tamiya.Better headlights,wheels, correct tyres and all the sponsor logos.
    On the Jager picture it appears to have a seperate front hood and brake ducting,so possibly a full detail kit.
    Hopefully the arch extensions and air dam are seperate as well,making other versions a lot easier.
    Surprised that they started with this one but very good news for 930 series fans.

    Great in box review.It looks to be about 90% the same as the 1/24.
    Agree about the level of detail.Very much like a diecast in places.
    Good to see they are using a proper box an not the awful end opening carton.
    Two quick questions please,are either of the main floor/chassis parts twisted and is there a copyright date on them ? Thanks

    Whether that is the correct box size remains to be seen,but Heller list it as 56x38x10cm.Compared to the Revell VW panel van at 35x21x8cm ,about the same sized kit with more parts.
    At least the price is sensible and not Ebbro prices.

    On their website as being available from this week.Looks similar in style to the Renualt 4 Ebbro tie up.Split screen shown on the built up.
    The only negative might be the shipping cost in some areas .Size of the box is nearly two feet wide for a 1/24 van!

  8. DeTomaso added a post in a topic Heller 1/24 Citroën Méhari - Now with actual review!   

    According to their website,this should out 14-20th of this month.Looks like a really nice kit and very keen price.

    The best online in the UK for recent US releases are Hannants ,Creative Models and Kingkit.For older and classics again try Kingkit or Pat at Collectakit.Lots of older and unusual stuff at sensible prices.All great traders to deal with.
