    I've uploaded the English Instructions for building the Akula, as translated by Tglenchur and myself. However, I don't see it listed. Is this an overnight batch process?

    My earlier post was incorrect since the upload wasn't successful because the file wasn't in the right format. I just uploaded it as a pdf, and it is now in the Moderators queue.

    Woohoo! Got mine in the mail today, just 10 days after I initially contacted Sylwester. As B-Manic said above, I emailed saga(at)modelarstwookretowe.pl. I included a picture of the magazine from the first post in this thread and asked him if he would sell me a copy. He responded within a couple of hours. He calculated the price at the current exchange rate to be $15 total for the model and shipping. He packed it with a thick slab of cardboard and wrote "do not fold" in English and Polish, so it arrived in perfect condition. If anyone wants this model I recommend contacting Sylwester at the email address above. He's great to do business with.

    As for the model, it is a separate insert and not printed within the magazine. The paper is thinner than I'm used to, but like Nando, I may scan it and print it on my usual 65 lb paper. This is going to look great next to my Los Angeles, Ohio and Typhoon - all 1:200 scale. :mrgreen:
