Seems a strange scale for an aircraft kit.  Maybe they're catering for those of us with slowly failing eyesight?  ???

There was a push, some years ago, now, to "metricise" scale modelling with 1/150. 1/100, 1/75, 1/50, 1/35 & 1/25 scale kits.

Only the 1/35 scale really stuck, for armoured kits, & 1/25, for some car kits.

Looks like Border Models is trying to create their own 1/35 aircraft niche.

If the Grizzly is anything like their Apocalypse tank, I'll get one. That was such a fun build.

Leopard 2A7V in grey CAD colours or in NATO 3-tone camouflage? Boring! How about some proper A7V colours?

Cheers,

The kit I was expecting. The box art not so much...!

I suspect that the prop on the #1 engine is now decapitating the 109 pilot.

Saw one on the shelf at my local, retailing for almost $1,100 Cdn. Nope nope nope, nopity nope nope. If I'm going to spend that much, I want something that I can sit in and fly.
