Image
Among this month's new releases is also SH72505 F-84F Thunderstreak ‘Reborn Luftwaffe’ model kit. And each of the kits does contain a piece of metal taken from the real F-84F jet that had crashed in Czechoslovakia in 1959. Today let us show you what you can find in the box and we would like to encourage you to not hesitate this time as the release is limited to only a thousand examples and there will be no re-release. Why? Not enough F-84F wreckage pieces unfortunately.  A.R.

MV136 Anhänger E-3 ‘German WWII Trailer’ upcoming release

Image
A very welcome addition to our Zetor tractor kits in 1/72 and not only to these will be this MV136 trailer. As was its larger cousin (kit 8067), this one also comprises resin cast parts, 3D-printed parts and a sheet of decals. In this smaller scale, we have decided not to use photo etches this time as they seem a bit superfluous.

1/48 TBF/TBM-3 Avenger Sets

Image
These correction sets have been designed for the quarterscale Italeri/Academy TBF/TBM-3 Avenger kits, originaly released by Accurate Miniatures. And the trouble with the Dash 3 kits is that they offer the narrow blade style propeller that were utilised on the early TBF-1 airframes while the TBF/TBM-3 Avengers had these broad bladed units. Set 4472  with this propeller is already available, and this month we are releasing also set 4471 with the control surface parts that have the correct number of service access panels and also can be posed in deployed positions.
