    I bought some planes from Air Alex in the fall of 2003. I did not get them until the fall of 2004. I was not happy. He was not even returning my e-mails. I thought I was out $100+. As a "Sorry about that" he sent some decals. The planes themselves were good, not great. Needed a little cleaning up in places where the plastic over ran the mold. I think he took a mold off a diecast plane I've seen for sale in the hobby stores.

    if you go to the 'bcmini' site and click on 1/144 Biplanes you'll see two versions of the WWII Swordfish torpedo bomber, one specifically for an HMS Ark Royal squadron. A few Swordfish would look good on HMS Eagle or Furious (WWII).
