Probably the most badly battered kit I've received through the post in a long time (and I don't think the post's to blame...)! Why am I still excited by Special Hobby's Skua? - read on...

Hi again

It's nice to be able to report a happy ending - Modelimex have quickly chased up a set of new transparencies from MPM (who produce Special Hobby kits) :



And an even nicer surprise awaited me when I opened the box for the brand new follow-up Roc... this time the transparencies are bagged separately!:



Could it be a be a case of customer feedback doing the trick?... we'll probably never know.

Watch out for a review of the Roc soon. (And you thought Jean-Luc's Fulmar was ugly... LOL!)

All the best

Rowan
