Guy,
 Oddly enough I thought as was building and researching a Lysander for commission( new crew and resistance fighters.)
I came across the Westlands Wendover. I thought it'd make a great Pulp plane for a fictional Eastern European Principality
Or a mad build from leftover bits by you.

Maybe my luck is better than yours but over the years I've picked up a number of SMER, Lindberg, Revell and Monogram type kits for anywhere between $7- 20 AUD, which is about four to twelve quid.  That Sarissa monstrosity retails at about $21 AUD minus p&p. For around $30AUD I picked up a Roden 1/48 DH-4 a few months ago. I have a SMER Tigermoth that cost me the princely sum of around $11 and a Bristol bulldog (albeit incomplete) for $7.00 at the last edition of the annual Model Show here.

Bring and buy sales, a number of online retailers, sales in local shops and even ebay have all proved profitable.

Last time I got any SMER I had to order them from Japan.

Yes. The only pulpy aircraft available there are too expensive to game with.
