I believe these guys also produce the Attack squadron models.  Models are cast with resin, with patterns printed in 3D.

Have just announced release of a 1/48 PZL P.1:



More details, including how to buy, here.

Nice to finally see the KC-130 being addressed in 1:48th scale. 

This also means that you can build other C-130 variants such as the MC-130/HC-130 with the IFR pods.

A couple new additions to the Attack Squadron line:

AN/ALE-39


AN/ALE-47


I have both on order and will report back when they arrive.

There's a lot of discussion about that aircraft over on SPF, but I find it a bit odd that it has all this stealth features built into it but then has this honking great big hot engine sticking out the back.

Mind you a thought has just come into my head, it sort of looks like the speculated shape of the new B-21 ---

You can use Google translate if you don't understand the Russian or Ukrainian text. As long as you can read Cyrillic text, you can type it in the Western alphabet and Google translate will figure it out.

For instance, предзаказ = predzakaz = pre-order

No but here is the Scalemates entry. It also has a copy of the instructions.

Hyperscale review: https://www.hyperscale.com/2022/reviews/kits/arma70055reviewjm_1.htm

This is a an absolutely beautiful kit of a well-deserved subject. We’ve long needed an updated P-39 in the “one true scale” and the folks at ARMA have delivered. The inscribed surface details are ample and scale-appropriate. The cockpit detail is awesome right out of the box. The parts count is low, the engineering is simple, and quality decals decals covering 5 schemes seals the deal. What’s not to like?

Highly Recommended!

Yes the PZL 11 and one of the Hurricane's. They are very good but their "Expert" boxings are extremely fussy from my point of view. Much happier with their standard boxings. If you only want a single Hurricane Mk 1 and you don't mind a fabric wing version then their isn't much to choose between theirs and the Airfix version if I'm honest and I'd plump for Airfix.

I've got a couple more in the stash ; a P-39, a Mustang and a Wildcat. I've read some interesting reviews as far as building the Wildcats undercarriage which is why I probably haven't built mine yet.
