SH48217 Aero C-3B ‘Czechoslovak Bomber-Trainer’ in 1/48 - boxart

   This autumn will see the release of the 1/48 SH48217 Aero C-3B ‘Czechoslovak Bomber-Trainer’ kit. The artwork to adorn the boxart is already finished and the guy ‘responsible’ for this wonderful piece of aviation art is no-one else than our long-time collaborator Standa Hajek. 
   The plane depicted, Aero C-3B V-15, with Maj.J.Manak at the controls, took part in a bombing pass over the frozen river od Danube in Slovakia and can be seen here against the backdrop of the Bratislava castle. Those of you familiar with the castle as it looks now may say that Standa has forgotten to paint the castle roofs. Well he has not as the castle, from the time it had been burnt out by Napoleon's soldiers until it was re-built again in the 1950s, was mere ruins.
