    Does anyone have the e-mail address for HobbyBoss?

    I have tried and tried but cannot find one.

    With all the 'exotics' they produce I'd like to suggest a Focke Wulf Fw190 V1 which, I think, would sell well.

    The only 1/48 scale kit I have heard of is the unobtainable Legato kit.

    I have written to Legato but they have no 'surplus parts'!!

    Thanks and regards,

    Weinace

    You may try to the link... www.hobbyboss.com

    But I couldn't access the site because of a problem with their server.

    Thanks Wurger I'll try that.
    I'd same problem with their site, to be honest I've never been able to 'get their site to work', unlike Dragon's.

    Thanks anyway - just have to hope someone issues 'it'

    Always you may try to find the Legato 1/48 scale Focke Wulf Fw 190 V1 resin kit with vacuformed canopy and photo etched parts.

    I was pondering this the other day - the conclusion I came up with was use the Hasegawa Fw 190A-3 (which has all the major parts for an A-2, -3 and -4) as a basis.

    The cowl/prop shroud is nothing we can't knock up on a lathe (plus shorten the existing cowl), and the shorter wings don't seem too much hassle. But what left me scratching my head was the best way to move the cockpit the few inches forward. I cant tell if this changed the shape of the windscreen and canopy fairing.

    But it would be a fun project - I should look for some really good scale drawings...
