New Copper State Models Bristol Scout kit update
« on: August 27, 2022, 12:21:25 PM »
Edgar at Copper State Models has assured forum members development of their much anticipated new 1/32 scale Bristol Scout kit is well advanced.

He says if all goes well they will start the tooling in September and hope to have test shots by late October.

No fixed release date has been set yet, given global supply chain issues. However Edgar says if Copper State are very lucky, the Bristol Scout kit may be ready by the end of this year.

Yes, full details are now up on the CSM site.
I have placed my pre-order.
Canít wait to get this one, but sounds like it will be an Easter present rather than a Christmas present.

It's going to be worth the wait, I hope it sells like hot cakes for them. The Bristol Scout is one of my all time favourites.

And I just ordered from them yesterday and didn't see this :o
So I guess I'll get 2 packages from them.

A post on Facebook from CSM:
Quote
We hope the Ehrhardt was just in time for the Armoured car guys.
But now it is time for 1/32 lovers, so with this message, we are opening a pre-order for our Bristol Scout C, which for the first time will be limited.
https://www.copperstatemodels.com/page/product_info/331/
The reason is very simple.
Our choice for the next 1/32 model was inspired by David Bremner  who with friends built an airworthy replica of Type C Bristol Scout, serial no. 1264, in which his Grandfather fought in WWI, including some original parts. This Bristol Scout was made using original factory drawings and David shared these materials with us to create the very accurate 3d model which we are now proudly presenting today.
David regularly displays 1264 at airshows in the UK and elsewhere.
The original fabric was fitted in 2014 and was used when David was able to fly 1264 from the exact spot his grandfather flew from exactly 100 years later. After four years, degradation from UV and castor oil from the engine required its replacement.
This fabric was made and fitted exactly like the original, and David has shared some of that linen with us which will be included in the pre-ordered kits.
Pre-order version will include
- High-quality Cartograf decals with markings for several aeroplanes, at least 3 (one of them with PC10 and also Dope Linen)
- 111 high-quality injection moulded plastic parts
- Two versions of the Lewis MG mount and bombs
- 5 photo-etched metal detail parts
- Full rigging diagram
- Highly detailed Gnome Lambda 80 HP and Le Rhone 80 HP engine (only for Pre-order version)
- An original piece of fabric (size  A6) from David Bremner`s Bristol Scout C
Pre-order period - 15 DEC 2022 till FEB/MAR 2023 (that is when we are planning to receive plastic)
