SH72475 Heinkel He 162A Spatz ‘Captured Birds’ in 1/72

   Today we are happy to be able to bring you the boxart and a handful of chosen marking schemes of the upcoming 1/72 SH72475 model - which is to be released this December - well if we get the boxes soon enough from the printers. And if not? Then start looking for the model in January next year :-) Anyway, not very distant future, is it? :-) And please do not get angry with the printing guys as someone else should be blamed for the delay. You might also have noticed some diffence between the RLM81/82 scheme as depicted on the boxart and the side profiles. So the thing is that both Japanese and Czech publications have the scheme as shown on the boxart while British made reference materials tell otherwise - as you can see it in the scheme diagram. We do not feel in the know enough to tell who is correct and who is not. The choice is yours then...
