Okay, that's a definite purchase for later.  I'll need to hold off until after I'm off furlough (LM is tardy in negotiating a follow-on contract to the one we just satisfactorily completed).

Nice to see another Cavilier Mustang conversion.  Hope they will also bring us a PA-48 Enforcer in the same scale.

They also do the Turbo conversion in 1/32nd for the Tamiya kit.

First a note from Andrey:

Quote
Good afternoon dear friends.
You all know very well that on February 24, 2022, Russia attacked My country.
It all started with rocket attacks and bombardments of peacefully sleeping cities.
Today we are still trying to work even though the hordes of rapists and murderers are located 40 kilometers from my beautiful Zaporozhye.
The work helps distract from the constant air raid sirens and periodic shelling and bombing of the city.
Despite all the difficulties, postal and transport services are working and this allows us to send our products to customers.
We have completed several of our projects that were started before the start of the war.
Arado Ar 196 B-0 in 1/48 scale is intended as a kit conversion from Italery.
P-38 Floatplane in 1/48 scale is intended for conversion kit from Tamiya P-38 F/G.
I hope that the sets will go on sale soon.
And a few more words that are not related to modeling.
I would like to especially thank the peoples of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia who received most of our women and children.
In the most difficult times, you see who is ready to lend you a helping hand.
Thank you very much!
I managed to evacuate my wife and two children to the Czech Republic.
Many thanks to Lubomir Kriz and Oleg Dudko, who helped in the evacuation and accommodation of my family.
Take care of yourself during this difficult time.
Best regards from Ukraine, Andrey.
Слава Україні! Героям слава!

Now the new planned releases - hopefully we will be able to buy soon:














I already have a kit of the first, though the floats do offer possibilities for other builds so...

I will definitely be buying the Lightning conversion though.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Good afternoon dear friends.
We continue to work 40 kilometers from the front line. Zaporozhye is subjected to regular rocket attacks from the Nazis from russia. It so happened that my house is located in the area of the city where rocket attacks are most frequent - all rocket explosions occur one and a half to two kilometers from my house. Despite all this, we continue to work.
I hope you will forgive us for the delays in the release of our projects, which we planned to release back in the spring.
Let me introduce you to our new sets.
These are complete kits, not conversions.
From September 20, they will be available for purchase in our store on EBay - https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/halberdmodels
Tomorrow I will introduce you to some more of our new kits and conversions that will be available in October.
I also want to thank the people of all the countries of the free world for your support in our struggle. Many thanks to you for the supply of weapons, financial assistance, for helping our refugees and helping our wounded soldiers.
Best regards from Ukraine Halberd Models.

These are great kits which will backfill your collection of 1/48 P-51s.

I recall seeing the XP-51 at the CWH airshow in the late 1970s.

Nice to see another Cavilier Mustang conversion.  Hope they will also bring us a PA-48 Enforcer in the same scale.
They do now, I've purchased one from them.

So far, I've purchased four conversion kits from them and two complete kits.  All came very well packaged, both in the shipping box and with the packing inside each kit's box.  Oh, their 1/48 "Beguine" is a full kit, not a comversion as their 1/32 one is.

I am definitely buying their conversion for Anson Johnson's aircraft.  It should be interesting as I have another concern's efforts in the same scale that use the Tamiya 1/48 P-51D; it should make an interesting comparison.

With a couple of their Cavalier conversions, I need to talk with Draw Decal about decals for the two Cavalier F-51D's that the US Army purchased as chase planes for the Cheyenne and, later, Apache helicopters.

Dreams can come true! It's on my wishlist.

That set looks utterly superb and I'd love to be able to build it. N13Y is such a gorgeous aircraft.

I just checked their eBay store and I see no Piper PAA-48 Enforcer listed.

Jeff: Halberd Models announced the Enforcer conversion kit on 28 September, saying that this "set will be available in our eBay store starting October 3rd."

Delays in the eBay posting may be due to events in Ukraine. (Recently, Andrey mentioned a Russian missile strike close to his home and the scheduled local black-outs.)

They produce them in batches and subjects appear and disappear from their Ebay store as sales occur.  I've had to be patient until some items I wanted reappeared there.  They respond quite readily to messages and questions.

FWIW, I am encouraging them to produce the two XP-78'a in 1/48.
