Announcing “Building the Kitty Hawk T-6/Harvard in 1/32 Scale”!

I’m pleased to announce that the next title in our Build Guide Series will be Building the Kitty Hawk T-6/Harvard in 1/32 Scale, by Chuck Sawyer, along with a second build by yours truly.

The book will feature two builds, the first being my own out-of-box build to show how the kit goes together without resorting to any modifications or aftermarket products. The second, flagship build of the title will be Chuck Sawyer’s typically forensic examination of the kit, with many refinements and corrections to the kit parts, including relocating the main landing gear to a more accurate position.

Chuck Sawyer’s build of the Kitty Hawk T-6 as a Canadian Harvard.

In other news, Building the Hasegawa/Alley Cat Ki-100 in 1/32 Scale by Harvey Low has been delayed slightly while we await the final piece of the puzzle. It has also been re-framed as the second title in our Build Article Series. With any luck, it should see the light of day around the end of the month.

Stay tuned for more news and information as it comes to hand!

Credit Payments Update

Recently, I reported that there had been some issues with customers attempting to pay using credit cards, with the payment process failing to complete. I can now tentatively report that this issue appears to be solved. I say “tentatively” because very few customers pay by credit card, so I don’t have a large enough sample of successful credit card payments to be definitive about it—but I remain hopeful!

So, if you’ve been holding off making a purchase due to my previous post, now would be a great time to try again. And if you’ve recently tried to make a purchase with a credit card (within the last 10 days) and it failed, please let me know, as I get no indication or record of these failed payments at my end.

Here’s a look at some of our recent titles, just to whet your appetite!
