very good news indeed!
i am not an expert, but is there a way to “link” our purchases to let Roden know they come from forums member? it would be great to have some measure of how our support transltes in sales...
thank you Roden!

Hi Folks

I'm not aware of any system to link member purchases to show Roden how many forum members bought their kits but there is one way we could do it.

Once the kits are released we could have a thread or members could PM me so we can gather numbers which I can then directly send to Roden. At the moment that's the easiest way I can think of.

cheers

This is a great idea. or maybe it would be easier to make a thread, members drop a pic of their newly acquired treasures, and you could ping Roden with a link?

I'll have one SPAD, 2 Avros and 2 or 3 Strutters, thank you!
Cheers,

I guess it would need full participation for accuracy?

Fantastic news! I’d forgotten about the Roden 504K and was beginning to plan a scratchbuild - I think I may wait!

Great news indeed!
I have to say, that having bought Roden's recent Stearman, seeing the high quality of its sprues causes that I can hardly wait for the announced Spad. Fingers crossed for its prompt release! I will buy one for sure and I will report it to Dave, as soon as I get it.

Great news.  I'll have to get a SPAD.
Guess they are waiting to see how high I set the bar on my 504?  ;D

Well Ken I have actually sent Roden a link to your scratch build 504K, as well as a link to this thread . They're taking a real interest in forum activities so I am sending them links to all relevant Roden threads.

I build strictly 1/32, but am up for a SPAD.

I take my hat off to you guys who scratch- build. The amazing skill but also because every time someone starts usually an injection moulding announcement is not far off ;D So can someone please take one for the team and build a Macchi M5? I’d love to see this in kit form from CSM, Eduard, Roden or ICM  :D
