Hi guys,

Just FYI in case you are looking out for them, the new/replacement planes just arrived courtesy of Royal Mail with a few new stands and stickers too which was a nice touch.

I have to be honest and say I had no problems at all with the original models but these are a big step up in quality. Not a bent wing in sight.

Nice surprise in the mail this morning. Big thanks to all concerned.

Regards

Dave

Mine arrived in Dunstable today.

Very nice they are too. Again I wasn't really having kittens about the originals either but a very nice touch by PSC.

Well done.

Same here,

No qualms about the old ones. Guess I'll be painting up some more planes then.

Received today in Ledbury as well. I fully agree. They are very nice. It was a decent gesture by Will at PSC. The originals weren't a deal breaker for me before.

These replacements are decent enough that I feel like I want to paint them.

Gentlemen,

pictures.

Or it never happened!



(Eagerly awaits his...)

Jokes aside, for those that own the old version: are these still better than the new ones (granted, you only had Spit and Bf 109s minis in the old edition).

Cheers.

Got mine today along with the extras I originally ordered, and since I didn't have a problem with the softer plastic models I now have WW2 aircraft a plenty.

Mine arrived here in The Netherlands yesterday.
Very nice quality, if a little shallower in detail


I'm hearing complaints about the new planes not fitting on the bases

How do your's fit?

I will wait and see how mine fit once I get them, but if the new planes are more unusable than the old ones, I can see it affecting my decision whether or not to support Red Alert.

So, tried some of the new planes with the few stands that came with them.
And yes, some are very loose fitting, those will likely need to be glued on to their stands.

The new planes have better-formed and deeper holes...pardon my french.
The pins on the old stands are not long enough.

I just received my new planes today.

WELL DONE, PSC! They are 500% better than the originals. NOW, I have some motivation to get the game to the table!

Hi everyone,

does anyone know if any planes have already been shipped to Germany?

Still waiting for mine...

I bought my copy in Essen and left my address at the booth. Has anyone got his shipment who bought the game in Essen last year?

Best wishes

Jochen
