Just to say that mk engineering still do the GRP noes. wings, scuttle.
Rang them last week and will be ordering soon. The price was very good too.

Just want to see if anyone has used them before to make sure they're decent.

I have seen them.......
They don't fit the Haynes Roadster.(Although they sat they do)
They are realy flimsy with no proper edges.

JMHO you understand

Kits parts direct was Lolocost which was owned by Richard Stuart/Robin Hood Engineering before being sold to GBS.
Lolocost started selling Locost parts and added Robin Hood parts later on.
They sold both Robin Hood sized parts and Ron Champions Build a Sportscar for 250 parts including a chassis.
Currently they sell a mix of Robin Hood and Locost stuff.
Most of the stuff is OK but pays your money etc.
You can see the parts on the GBS/Robin Hood stand at the shows.
But like everything you should check price and quality and compare.
