Next month sees the release of Eduard’s Messerschmitt Bf 110D as a stand-alone kit. This was previously only available in the Royal Edition and features a new fuselage moulding with an extended tail for the life-raft housing.

Also appearing again are the popular Albatros D.III and La-7 as Weekend Editions with no photo-etched details and decals for a single colour-scheme each.

On the photo-etch front, there are Big-Ed sets for Grumman “Cat” fans and Hasegawa’s recent Saab Draken comes in for the full Eduard treatment.

The best just got better! When I bought Rest Models' resin Heinkel He 112 V-6, I wrote:

Every once in a while a kit comes along which forces you to re-evaluate everything you've seen before. While I've continually been impressed by the improvements in resin casting over recent years, nothing could prepare me for Rest Models' He 112! Quite simply, it's the finest resin kit I've ever seen!"
