Thanks. Did you have the opportunity to see the sprues and/or a finished kit? Colin already has his kits up for sale.


Sorry, I didn't see the AZ SR.53 sprues, it's not really my period of interest and I've already built one resin one. However they were going like hot cakes if that's any help.


I'm not surprised. A nice complement to Chris's SR.177.  I finally found a sprue shot over a Brtimodeller (not surprised).  Only 37 parts. My kind of kit.



Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

It would be a great temptation to re-engine with suitable turboprops.

Allison 250's or something equivalent in size and power would be the best choice, IMHO.  I suspect going with larger engines like the PT6A, TPE331, or Astazou would be a bit of "overkill".

I thought Valom had already done those, I'm got the Mk.II in the stash too.

EDIT; umm maybe not, I think I must have read sometime ago they were going to do the Centaurus versions in the future.
