Title: Avis Aircraft Kits
Post by: Jeffry Fontaine on May 17, 2014, 03:41:35 AM
Bernhard Pethe has provided an in-box kit review of the Avis 1:72nd scale MiG-8 Civil Aircraft (kit number BX 72013) (http://www.modellversium.de/kit/artikel.php?id=9870) at Modellversium.de.

Interesting design and certainly one that I had never seen before. 





***If anyone knows of an actual web page for Avis feel free to share it or send me the link and I will add it to this post. 

Thanks,

jjf

Cute…I wish it was in 1/48…or even 1/35.  One could do a nice diorama showing it in the driveway of a house.

It is in 1:72nd scale Greg.  You must be up too late again or  far too early and waiting for the coffee to kick in ;)

I don't know if Avis has a web site. I get the impression that they have other companies make their kits for them (in this case, AModel). I have their 1/32 Fokker E.V kit and it doesn't look like a  typical Amodel product; closer to Roden.

Damn, I was hoping for this in 1/48 ;)

If all the people who have ever heard of this aircraft buy a model, it should sell well into the two digits.

Nice little oddball. I can hope that eventually an Abrams Explorer will appear from these folks.

It’s 1/72nd scale and only 500 pcs! Where’s my microscope?
Unless of course they mean only 500 kits produced.

One would hope so.  It looks like, not counting fasteners, that there were not that many pieces in the full scale original.

They also have this one coming:

Is that a covered option for a second seat behind the pilot?

Yes, but when flown the engine delivered insufficient power to fly with a passenger...oopppsss. ;D

500 copies of the kit, not 500 parts to the kit! It does look a bit like a flying anus...

Funny, I've got some D-ANAL registrations from a Ju-52 Lufthansa livery supposedly.

Although I suspect Roden is just messing with us.

Would the individual flying this "thing" be called a Proctolator?

If you feel the need to build ugly, this kit is for you.
