      GOSH!!! Such great news! And with such details and OPEN windows, together with Roden's CV 440 will be great bestsellers! As with the Convair, the Viscount opens a large canvass for a wide selection of airlines. Will look forward as planning to get several

      Open windows but not clear plastic front wind screen. That a bit different. Nice looking kit.

      ^^ On the PAS Decals (Russian) forum, I was told that the cockpit section (and the windows seen on the same sprue) will be transparent in the production kits. It's a shame that, for those of us who prefer decal windshields and cabin windows in this scale, they couldn't provide both as the regular grey plastic shown in the test shots would be much easier to blend in.

      100% Agree with you buzz! For the fellow modelers that want a smooth fuselage for windows/windshield decals, will be a nice addition.

      Now showing on eBay for £30 ($36). I think at that price, it can stay on eBay.

      $36 isnít that outrageous, but $15+ for shipping is.
