Is definitely a re -release , I bought this kit in 1997 ish .

I hope Aeroclub will re-release the 2 x 1/144 Neptune kits they did back in the late nineties , I have one of each but that is just not enough :-)

You can also see a progress shot on a Neptune build and if you jump over to the Navy section a built Skyhawk too.

The site referred to by anonymous is Bruce Scott's collection of RAAF/RAN/Australian Army aircraft in 1/144 scale. These Aero kits pop up occasionally on evilBay - I recall a Skyhawk up for auction within the last couple of months.

Monochrome (Trumpeter satellite company) also re-issued the Neptune kit maybe a year or two ago when they came out with their F-86 Sabre sets.

I've never looked at the parts layout for that one so I couldn't tell you if it was a direct copy of the Aeroclub kit or a new mold.
