Some interesting additions there:

  • Yet another 1/48 Viggen? or should I say two? - Edit:  Just did some research.  MPM are working with Tarangus Co. to prepare the new Viggen.  MPM will be doing the A-37 and SK--37 versions which presumably leaves Tarangus doing the fighters.
  • 1/32 XF5U-1 - wow!
  • MD-500E Conversion - yes please!!!
  • Container Load Trailer - would prefer if this was 1/35!

But now the most important question - IS THE 1/48 HE-115 FINALLY AVAILABLE????  It doesn't appear in their eshop yet...

I was pretty happy to see MPM being in the boat on the 1/48 Viggen, as I hope that might get us a down-scale to 1/72 some nice day.  :icon_music:  Hey, a man can dream, can't he?  :-\

Ah, at least MPM seems to have us 1/72 guys covered with regards to a pretty decent AH-1G/Q/S!  :icon_beer: The CAD images they've posted on the web (HERE, for instance, with many more images in other posts) look spectacular.
Too bad for AZ Models, though. Their recently released AH-1G doesn't look half bad, but I reckon MPM's will be even nicer.
Cheers,
Moritz

Ok, the He115 does appear in their eshop here - it is listed as a Special Hobby release though (obvious now, but I missed the connection at first) - it is still listed as "Comming" though,

I like the Firefly in Foreign service if only for the Ethiopian decals!!!  The Bomb disposal Technician might also add an interesting twist to a build diorama

Shame that the portable toilet is 1/72 scale and the bomb disposal guy is 1/35... in the same scale there would be some amusing diorama possibilities :)

MPM has announced a new family of Mirage F.1 kits in the One True Scale TM (1/72, obviously!)! An F.1C, C-200, CR, CT, a twin-sticker F.1B and even a South African F.1AZ.
I'm one happy camper!
More pics on ARC (LINK).



Friends of the quarter scale will probably appreciate this one:

F-86K (more pics of that on ARC - LINK).

My guess is that it's probably a reissue of the Flashback kit.

I have it, overall a fairly nice typical Czech limited production kit.

The Hawk Trainer 3/Magister I was used as a racer for
years post-war. Unfortunately many of the surviving aircraft have
been 'restored' and painted in camouflage that some never wore
or only wore briefly. Aircraft that spent most of their lives in mufti
have been muddied up with boring cammo, all in the name of
oversimplified notions of 'history'.

Lots of pics at the Air Britain Photos site:
