Re: NG Model - 1:400 August 2020 Release "Hints"

It's around the same with other UK retailers - due to import tax/VAT added on at 20% by the Government.

Re: New NG Models Mould Review: Boeing 747SP

I'm not criticizing what others are willing to pay? I'm criticizing the price hike for something to replace models that many are already happy to have in their collections.

This has been mentioned over and over again, but falls on deaf ears and they still use a DARK red on Northwest Orient models. Others got it right - Northwest is a bright 'regular red' !

Re: 747-400 mould

Re: Something big is coming in 1/400 in July 2020.
