I also have this book but have never heard of a volume on German fighters. Is this a brand new release?

Not sure if this will work but three versions of the built up kit were posted today on Facebook.

Hi all,
Posted on FB by Rafal Jerzak.
Seemingly three builds of the new Roden 1:32 scale Strutter.
None of the colour schemes are supplied with the kit.
Presumably he used masks for the markings,

Thanks for posting those Rick. There seem to be a lot of folks on the Facing Book hating on this kit, complaining of the mold quality, etc. I chalk it up to WNW having spoiled everyone over the last ten years or so.

On their facebook page Models for Less in the UK have the following announcement

"Roden 1/32 ROD635 Sopwith 11/2 Strutter £45.99
MJR Price £40.85 GBP inc UK Evri - TH - Due End March/Apr'23"

Re, my initial post, these kits have finally hit the UK, but there seems to be a huge variation in price:
Hannants are asking 69.99GBP (if you'd backordered, it was 62.99)
Jadlam are asking 43.95GBP with free postage
MJR have just invoiced me for 40.85GBP incl shipping, and I have bitten their hand off with my cc!

I've seen this before with Roden - I got the latest SPAD XIII for 45.99 (sent) from Dave Coley's Emporium, while Hannants again are still asking 65.99 plus p&p.

Anyway, just a heads-up to shop around for prices, as they vary significantly from supplier to supplier.

Puh! And they have seen the pictures which were posted here by Rick and Mike?
However ; Another reason for me not to be at Facebook. I can’t say how much I despise such people. If they’re not modelers but just assemblers, those haters should start collecting stamps or so.

The kits do look great once "Assembled" and painted ::) The builder confirmed this Morning that He made his own markings!

I don't care what the critics say on FB and other sites, I will support Roden (I like their 1/32 range).  The talented people on this site make great builds of these kits (I am not one of them  :o)
