    I wonder what decal schemes they are going to have?

    Interesting, I thought they'd decided to abandon this market...

    Yeah, we will see how well an old, half blind guy can do with them! Thank goodness for magnifying glasses!

    I may buy some of those when they are released. I have tried and failed in the past to build these Valom kits. Is there a how to build guide somewhere? As they do look outstanding once they are completed. As I have seen Tim's builds in person and just wish that I had half of his skill and patience to build these fiddly kits.

    I've made an how-to for the Valom SE5a:
    https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/sh...ding+Valom+se5
    I hope Vaclav took heed of my recommendation to simplify some parts (one part underwings, struts combined to rectangle shape with slots in the wings, engine always plastic and resin optional), to comply wargame customers.

    Thanks, Florian!

    The von Marwitz scheme is one I don't have decals for, so looking forward to owning a box just for that.

    Definitely check out Florian's "How To". It is the only reason I didn't immediately give away my Valom kits upon arrival and inspection.

    Of course, I still haven't assembled any... but it gave me hope!

    Ok, I like the paint schemes. I may have to get one of these.

    Wanted to preorder two kits (unfortunately not possible). Václav told me the kit will be available between January-February.

    I am definitely interested in this.

    I have also recently skimmed through Florian's SE.5a tutorial. I have a better idea of what I'm getting into, and I would like to see more build logs of Valom's kits. I'm not sure how he managed to properly fold that gun though...

    The gun can't be folded safely, if I remember correctly. I tried to fold it, it breaked and I clued the parts together.

    Waiting with much anticipation!
