Lone Star Models has finally released their 1/48 Felixstowe F.2a in both early and late version. Very nice kit. Accurate and detailed. More info available on the Lone Star Models website.

Hi there

"Awed silence" just about summed up my reaction too - this is going to be MASSIVE, even one size down from WNW's beauty.

Andy's busy working up the News item with Berman, but, yeah... damn - this sounds amazing!

All the best

I just finished exchanging emails with Mike West - Lone Star Models.

While the Felixstowe is being developed and manufactured its not ready just yet. The Template on his website is not allowing updates. (I know that problem well.) If he allows I'll post some images.
