looks like they ditched the preorder section. this months had a couple of things though, the staaken and the pegasus dh2. good prices.
has anyone bought that staaken and what are gegaus kits like?

Frankly, I miss the old, simple B/W flyer. Prices were a little better before the fancy flyers started coming, or so it seems...
Just my two cents. =-)

Make that 4. I was just thinking so myself, earlier today. Somehow all that colour art makes it hard to see individual items. Sadly, the art, at that size, doesn't carry well.

Pegasus kits can be, um, challenging. I've started a few and finished one. I hope to get the others finished eventually. Spare parts can be considered a necessary help when building a Pegasus kit.
Whilst doing up the HA Buchon I found a replacement Bf 109 canopy to be better than what came in the kit. I still have an Albacore and a Ryan FR-1 undone. I did have a Fulmar but passed it on when the Vista kit came out. I wish Vista had hung in there long enough to get their Albacore to market. IOW, if it's the only way you'll get one of those Type XA Wonderbirds, go with Pegasus.

i got the dh2 because it looked simple. not too much junk and it can be sown together for rigging.

The new flyer is closer to magazine quality.

They don't have a subscription section on the order form any more, that I could find.
I don't find the new format to be very searchable - most of the mfr. names are just type instead of being the logo, scales are a little mixed together, etc. My theory about them using photos instead of the old line drawings is that nobody has to do the art - they can just scan the stuff in from boxart or wherever.
I've never been a flyer shopper anyway... Mine does come quick, though.
