Couldn't find a thread for this company so here goes.

Just announced in the Hannants Hot News Letter today, something that will come in very handy --

This is probably the best source for Kora Models (and LF models) that I know of:  http://www.lfmodels.com/index.php

Two new kits found at Hannants:

1/72 Junkers Ju 488A-1 with Hanomag SS 55N + 4 trailers with SC 1000 Herman bombs



1/72 Junkers Ju 488A-5 with Hanomag SS 100LN + 2 A bombs on trailers



All thought they are rare and unique, at $212 CDN plus shipping, they are not at the top of my must buy list. Unless I win the lottery.  ;)
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

One nice thing about Australia is there is plenty of room like the "out back" for having lots of 1/48 aircraft kits.
Heck,,, 1/32 and 1/24 kits would also fit. :)

 I think KORA has issued a 488 in the past - though the "Atomic Bomber"( *snort* ) variant is new to me. My 588 is still in progress, needing it's gear doors smashformed, and a few other details...

 KORA does do some wonderful and unique castings, but they're also pretty pricey.

Ok...that's a new one for me.  Looks like it could be a candidate for transformation into a cargo pod.

EDIT: further research indicated that the Hirth Lastentrager Bf 109G-6 was indeed a cargo glider project,with two SC 500 and
removable wings (see below):



Now remove those bombs and see where you go...

*Heavy sigh.* Thee and me. As I said above, Kora does some beautiful work, but they do run a bit higher than average. If I had not battered my head against the A+V Resin Ki-93, I might still be tempted - this is one of my favorite heavy twins.
