Peter, I have a few packages of the HPH epoxy, simply because await seems I’m always building one of their kits. That stuff is duper hard to get in the US due to labeling, etc. 

I talked to Mirek and once convinced him to send me a few sets, but that was a number of years back.  I see Greg Cooper quite a bit and he is a pretty big importer of HPH, and he’s snuck glue in for me as well, stashed in a kit. Not bad that way because it’s not for retail sale.

FYI, I do have it on good authority that JetMads does intend on producing a 1/32 CF-100 Canuck as well.  It is scheduled 4-5 projects down.  THAT will be one for the ages, and along with an F-89, will complete my 1950s interceptor collection.

This looks like a beast and a half, it’s a project not for the faint heated for sure. ……wonder what the buy to build / completed ratio will be……….just wondering….

I'm gathering the same but it's going to a ton of fun and about the same number of builds going on in various forums. I'm willing to bet, Jetmads never expected sales to be like this. I just followed Maru's link to LSP and some pics of the kit: OMG ... looks fantastic.

Keep 'em comin

Any luck on finding paints for the Viggen in Canada yet?

Keep 'em comin

Peter, no luck in Canada so I decided to order them directly from Hataka. They'll ship to Canada but as I went with their lacquer version it's €20 for the shipping. That was offset a bit by the paint being 30% off. I grabbed a set for the Su-33 at the same time to make it more economical.

DN Jetmads mask set arrived today. The package cover is different then shown (DN ebay Store photo) but my set is # 2013 - just haven't opened up the package yet.

Arrived from Bulgaria in good shape with just one small corner bent.

Long way to go until the kit arrives and the Hataka paint set has been shipped as well.

Keep 'em comin

I'm pretty sure they are and on their web site:

The range of specially formulated lacquer based paints optimised for airbrushing.

I've used them in the past and do add few drops of Self leveling Thinner but I do the same with MRP paints as well. So, I would have to say, they are good to go straight from the bottle.
