New 1/72 Avro 504K kit coming mid-late 2023 (manuf. unclear)

Hi all,
One of my fellow moderators at the WW1AircraftModels forum posted this exciting news:
New info from Sabre Kits -

"From our 3D printing - we are preparing for the second half of the year for KP/AZ Avro 504K 1/72, construction CAD Mr. M. Turjak"

Here's some pics - looks like it should be a nice release.

I presume from the description that perhaps this is the master that will be used for moulds by KP or AZ?

What fantastic news for British and Commonwealth modellers! I for one am hoping it is to be a KP/AZ release for cost reasons as the recent 3D-printed 1/72 Airco DH.6 kit by Hobartville Hobbies goes for A$65 (it is a very pretty kit, however).
