Avis Aircraft Kits

Bernhard Pethe has provided an in-box kit review of the Avis 1:72nd scale MiG-8 Civil Aircraft (kit number BX 72013) 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,

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.
