  • EdRoy110_image001
There weren't any details of the forthcoming Royal Class Messerschmitt Bf 110 in Eduard's usual announcement of the month ahead's releases. The reason is clear now - it's set to be an absolute stunner that fully justifies a News item of its own!

It's too early for any details - or even the boxart - but Eduard's big release (literally) for June will be the Royal Class Messerschmitt Bf 110 which, if earlier reports are true, will see the first outing of the Bf 110D.

Meanwhile, the P-39 Airacobra returns as a Weekend Edition and there's a healthy line-up of new etched sets and painting masks.

Proof the old motto is true, as Eduard re-box the Airfix 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk. 22/24 for the second time in a limited edition. Complete with excellent new resin parts and decals, the kit sold out almost immediately on its first appearance and is likely to do the same again - so grab it while you can if you're a Spitfire fan.

Also new for April will be the delayed 1/72 scale R.F.C. figures set and the Polikarpov I-16 Type 10 in a Weekend Edition guise, plus the first etched sets to complement Eduard's own 1/48 scale Hellcat. Add a healthy dose of Thunderschiefs, Wellingtons, Chinooks and Storchs - plus much more - and April looks set to be a busy month for Eduard.
Eagle Editions have announced the purchase of Monogram Aviation Publications, long noted for their top quality aircraft books, including Ken Merrick's almost legendary "The Official Monogram Painting Guide to German Aircraft 1935-1945" (now out of print).

  • i2007-11_08
The first of Eduard's new original releases for 2008 arrives next month in the shape of their eagerly awaited 1/48 scale Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat. While the earlier Fw 190 and Bf 110 have been quite complex kits, this time Eduard are aiming to make the Hellcat much more straightforward and aimed at the mainstream modeller. Although it may be somewhat simpler, we can still expect the company's attention to surface detail, as the accompanying photo of the fuselage of a test-shot shows. Also exciting for Navy fans, February sees the ex-MPM/Special Hobby Fulmar issued in a new form - the Mk.II, complete with the prominent cheek inlets and a set of 5 x colour schemes.
