^ That is so cool.   8) Never thought I'd see a new Frelon in 1/72.

Clear Prop also have a new 1/72 Su-25 Frogfoot in the works. I'm gonna have to get so many of those.  :icon_beer:

Definitely a good thing for fans of the Super Frelon.  Still hoping to see a decent 1:48th scale Super Frelon.  The old Heller 1:35th scale Super Frelon is Yuuuuuuuge and quite detailed but the size is a real obstacle for any display shelf.

I too once had the big Heller kit. I remember we went to the LHS five minutes before closing, I was panicking over what I wanted, I selected the Super Frelon. I was maybe 12. What resulted was not a build worth posting here  ;D

You can pre-order your A2D Hannants, Price is TBD.

::) le Sigh.  Coming up on a year and still no sign of this kit anywhere.  The Hannants' link still says TBD on availability.

This update posted on their Facebook page:

"А lot of people ask us how the production of the SkyShark A2D on the 1/48 scale, which we announced a year ago, is going on. We answer - everything is fine! We have finished the production of all 15 molds. In May we expect the first test castings and begin the test assembly of the model.”

So on sale before of the 2020?

70 years ago on May 26, 1950, the first flight of the XA2D-1 prototype Douglas A2D Skyshark took place. That's why today we are pleased to announce new project of Clear Prop Models the A2D SkyShark in the ONE TRUE SCALE of 1/72 scale.

Definitely good news for Skyshark fans everywhere and hopefully they will be bringing out the 1:48th scale kit soon.

With the layout of the fuselage panels of the Seasprite I wonder if they will produce a later version with two engines?

They will!  :smiley: A two-engined version was announced on their Facebook page a couple of days ago. LINK! Scalemates lists it as an SH-2C.

They've also announced a new family of 1/72 MiG-23 Floggers from new moulds. LINK!  :-*  :-* :-*
