Default Side Boosters !!!!!

Time to end the speculation and rumours...

I can announce that, after years of speculation and discussion on this forum, that Warp will be releasing their newly remastered Side Boosters kit very shortly (prior to their silo diorama models previously announced).

The details are as follows:

The kits will again be produced in high quality polyurethane resin.

All the piping work will be pre-shaped and cast in pewter.

The kits will also include the decals....prices are awaited from a decal suppler for waterslide versions...if this proves too expensive then they will be printed on self adhesive paper just like the nuclear waste drums.

These kits will be released to the public through Comet Miniatures so keep an eye out for the announcement. Price schedules will be set once the complete production costs have been established.

FORUM MEMBERS WILL BE ABLE TO BUY THROUGH THE FORUM VIA MYSELF FOR A REDUCED PRICE COMPARED TO NORMAL RETAIL

Warp gratefully acknowledges the support of The Eagle Transporter Forum and the vast amount of reference data and information which has been published here, which is being put to good use.

Pictures will follow shortly.

Sounds cool, one of the missing accessories. And this also means that I am in need of another Eagle...

Any indication on how they will be designed to attach to the PE 12" Eagle?

Why do you want to take them off again?

I'll get an extra Eagle for it and glue the side boosters on the pod.

Sounds like a good idea if we can find the right magnets and a ready source...
