The Comic isn't in My plans but I know Many of you are really excited by this announcement! I just started working on My Strutter and Must say I am Extremely Happy to see Roden listened to feedback and improved the strut locating pins on this one!!

And apparently Aviattic may now be doing. 1 1/2 Strutter decals, contrary to the indication back in February- hurrah!!

Hi Simon,
Indeed.
Richard is close to completing decals for 5 aircraft and will also be releasing engine cowls to replace the kit parts.
Depending on sales he may be releasing more decal sets.

It's great news and almost a 'must have'. Hopefully he will include sufficient roundels and fin flashes for 5 airframes then so that we don't have to use the Roden ones - maybe a roundel and fin flash sheet as well? And cowls to. I suspect he will do well with sales at SMW this year!!

That’s why I couldn’t understand Richard not being interested back in February because there’s a lot of potential in this kit for aftermarket sales. He must be taking a bit of a gamble that sales will justify the risk he’s taking but I hope it works out well for him. No doubt there will be scope for French markings to?

Meanwhile, Jadlam in the UK have the new 1/32 Comic Strutter on pre-order for ..... 41.95GBP with free UK delivery.
I've just ordered mine (with a 2GBP points-off discount too) as the two-seater came out at this sort of price but then quickly shot up to 50-60GBP.
Might be a short while before I build another RFC Strutter but at this price it's still a no-brainer!

That is cool -my first (completed  ;D ;D ) WWI model was a Toko 1/72 "Comic" By my current standard it looks pretty bad, but I still have it, and silently I was really hoping Roden would do this version in 1/32. Well done Roden!

Sandy, when you say no-brainer I look at my shelves filled with more models than I can possibly build I realize -  I am obviously a "no-brainer"
