Along time in the making but it seems the newest aircraft model manufacturer is the brain child of Wingnut productions owner Peter Jackson (LotR) fame. Opening with a bang and the subject matter is 1/32 WWI plastic model aircraft kits
  • Mirage Halb.CL.II
I was in very early 2003 that I first heard the news in the wind. Mirage was to do a series of WWI aircraft in 1/48 scale. Right in the middle of that list was kit# 481211 Halberstadt CL II and kit #481212 Halberstadt CL II (Bay). Now in 2009 we are blessed to see the first of those kits on the horizon. An example was on view at the recent Nurnberg Toy Fair. . .

April looks set to be another busy month for Eduard. No new kits, per se, but the Fw 190 A-5 makes a welcome re-appearance as a Profipack, while the Bf 110E and SPAD XIII are released as Weekend Editions for the first time. On the aftermarket front, there's plenty for everyone, but the highlight may well prove to be the triple-whammy of sets for Revell's big Ju 88A. The cockpit in that kit is already great - and with the addition of etched details, it should be eye-popping!
