To go with the new YF-23 kit, new decal sheet has just been announced by Caracal Models, to be printed first in 1/48, then 1/72 and 1/144. A preview of the artwork can be seen here: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=268862&st=20

"Boomerang II"?  That won't come back if it's that shape!  ;D

I'd have thought as the YF-23 was nicknamed the "Black Widow II", a similar Arachnid from downunder would have worked better - how about "Funnel Web" or "Trap Door" or "Huntsman"?  ;D ;D

War and hunting boomerang didn't come back anyway, it was only the smaller ones used for hunting and scaring birds that did.

I think Boomerang II would be apt given the first CAC Boomerang.  KittyHawkII would also be acceptable.

Chris and I chose the Red Back nickname for reasons that might not be obvious to all here.

Oceanic Confederation Defense Force? Wouldn't that be Oceania or Oceanica?
Oceania/Oceanica have specific political, geographical and ethnographical
meanings, 'oceanic' refers to any ocean.

Hobby Boss' news for 2014 are here! LINK!

For the 1/72 faction, it's rather meh!  :uuu: Well, with any luck the Skyhawks will be decent and fill the void Fujimi left by not re-releasing theirs.
Cheers,
Moritz

It'd be nice to see that Delta FAV in 1/35 make it further than a photo in the catalog at some point in time.

I think that must be an in-joke with Chinese kit makers; I think it's been in everybody's catalog at some point, starting with DML back in the 90s.

I wonder if the KrAZ 255 is based on the Roden kit?
The T-20 Kosmolets on the Mirror Models kit?
