We have to downsize our household and, as a result, I've decided to dispose of my back issues of the IPMS Quarterly, Update and Journal. I have the Quarterlies/Updates going back to Volume 7 (two Quarterlies published in 1972) up through the current issue of the Journal. There are too many to list them individually but if there is a particular year/volume you're interested in, please e-mail me directly at email@example.com and make a reasonable offer. I'll ship them to you via your choice of carriers at cost. Of course, this is a "first come, first served" offer. Thanks.
I've built a number of models from this fledgling company, and must state one basic observation: they provide some fascinating subjects. I probably don't need to go into a lot of historical background regarding the revolutionary Arado Ar234, except to say that it was the world's first jet bomber and a truly amazing aircraft in many ways. I became fascinated with it during my teens when I built the venerable Lindberg kit, enthralled by the design.
Leave it to Fly to come up with not one, but several different configurations of this pivotal aircraft in my favorite scale, with more to come. I checked up on the Fly internet site and was not at all surprised to see that the two earlier releases are now sold out. Get them while you can!
