There shouldn't be any available from New Zealand that I know of.
Ivan had mentioned to me he is "frightfully busy" at the moment and for the next few days as well, I'm sure that is the only reason you haven't heard back yet. He will certainly write you soon, and as Maxedout says, he is indeed still actively selling plans.

Leo and Cam Tetrault's DH86 Express
Luke has posted Leo and Cam's Express on the Hall of Fame and it looks superb. Ivan sent me some additional pictures which really show the model off well, also two of the Lancaster they made a couple of years ago, now painted up in camouflage. I'm not sure of the origin of their Spitfire but it's there anyway.
Here's what they said about the maiden:
The pictures of the DH86 are of the maiden flight that took place last
summer, the only flight. It was a hair raising experience. We had tached the
motors on the bench at home and got 9000 rpm which gave lots of power. Cam
purchased a sound system for this model and had a terrible time getting it
to work. In the process of fiddling with all the switches on the transmitter
settings were changed. We did not check the rpm at the field and took off
with only 6500 rpm.
The model hung on the props, on the edge of the stall at a height of about
100 ft. Cam nursed it around the circuit, making rudder turns and landed
without any mishaps. Hopefully we will smarten up with practice.
See you at Chilliwack?

What is it that always forces us to taxi a brand new model around in places that we could never fly from? On the other hand, I think you could have gotten out of that road. Not sure about getting back in though!

Just wanted to draw your attention to a new build "log" by Mr. Martin Hardy for his Mosquito. He is doing it in the format of two PDF build articles, the first has already been uploaded to this thread on the first page in the section where the other threads are listed; but I have attached it directly here as well so you don't have to go hunting for it.
This one covers retracts and fuselage, and his retract design alone is certainly worth taking a look at, if only to be impressed!
When he completes Part 2 I will make a note about it as well.
