    Like I said collector pieces come collector prices.
    I'm sure some of them will go into R/C scale warbirds even at those prices.

    WOW.... I changed the prices from the British Pound to the US dollar.
    WHOA ! A 1/18th replica Spitfire for $3,200.00 ! Too rrich for my blood.
    But.... like the man sez... if you have to ask how much...you can't afford
    it.

    There looks to be some time consuming work gone into those panels so perhaps the price isn't so high as it first looks. Someone must be buying them!

    Very cool, shame I can't afford most of the stuff though. Looks like they are worth it though.

    I could certainly buy one, MAYBE two, but I'd then be broke.

    Dear chaps,
    don't worry about prices. help destroy the economy and build from your stash. I certainly have enough to keep me going for a year or two
