    Dear All,

    I am sorry it is so long since I posted a thread, but to those who know, our plans and business have been much affected by Terry's cancer treatment and major surgery in the last 18 months, but at least the aspects of that are behind us at this point.
    After five years of hard work we are pleased to announce the 25 airplanes we will be DEFINITELY releasing before the end of the year. This is NOT a wish list with all these designs pretty much complete.

    It has been a fascinating process determining what models to create as a collection to release, and we have another dozen or so designs at near-completion that we will be bringing out subsequently. So you will be looking at around forty different designs at very least. As well we will be releasing 1/72 models of Croydon Airport, Wichita

    We haven't had time to overhaul the website but check it out anyway<http://byairclassique.com/> There will be lots happening there soon...

    I attach some progress images of recent work.

    Regards and best wishes to you all...

    Rosie and Terry

    Thanks for your interest. We will be looking at releasing the models as digital printed models initially and they would be comparable with other similar printed items. I note the link to our site didn't work so here it is http://www.byairclassique.com

    Note you are based in Texas. We are also designing a facade model of El Paso Municipal Airport in 1/72.

    Regards

    Terry Moyle

    I'm surprised there have not been more replys to this thread as your area of interest and your remarkable collection is something I've not seen covered anywhere by anyone.

    And I see you'll release in time for the holiday season. . .You've made my Santa wish list easier to make (particularly the Ford). Please keep this Forum updated. . .

    Wishing Terry (but both of you) well,

    cbg

    This is all great news! "By Air Classique" is one of my favorite card modeling sites. I love the concept, execution, and products. Bravo to all involved! :thumb: :)

    Hi

    As has been noted some of our Tiger Moth models are now out there. Now a confession...despite designing nearly forty different liveries of these little biplanes, I'm not a great Tiggie fan! :) But they really do conform to a model that is ubiquitous and international and certainly suit the paper model approach.

    I am hoping that my cancer has been vanquished, and despite still finding it difficult to sit for any length of time, I'm progressively increasing my work rate which is good from a design POV.

    Anyway we've got four models available and they are a good introduction to the style and methodology of our other models. For Thunderbird Fans there is a little surprise!
