Grand Models (Greece) & Freightdog Models (UK) have issued a kit of the Airco D.H.4 with Siddeley Puma engine, based on the Pegasus kit (injection & pewter) with new resin parts & etched steel. It's a very limited edition of 50 kits only, with decals for 2 RFC & 2 Greek versions.

Available for EU orders from Grand Models: https://grandmodels.gr/product/de-havilland-dh-4-puma/

I'm building it now for the next newsletter. Very promising.

Looks neat, I wish they’d sell through other distributors:  postage and toll fees bring the price to almost €60 here :o

I doubt it if this kit will be sold through other distributors due to its small quantity.
Have you tried both Grand Models and Freidghtdog? I've ordered from Grand Models and paid €36 including shipping to Israel.

Yeah - I’m afraid Norway is a bit ”special”.
