  1. Boxart for new Hobby BossPLA Navy Type 039 Song Class submarine (1:350) is not bad: Source: LINK
  2. Some had shorter engine nacelles if I remember correctly. I would love to have them in the box, it would make aircraft a bit different from other P.11 fighter. Difference is shown on that 48 scale kit boxart on scalemates.
  3. Hobby Boss is going to release a new model (a new variant?) of PLA Navy Type 039 Song Class submarine: PLA Navy Type 039 Song Class on scalemates
  4. Serial number is different, old kit is "80231", posted by Homebee is "80299". Maybe new moulds?
  5. And now, decals schemes: FM-2 Wildcat Expert Set decals
  6. New post on blog Photoetched parts and masks for Wildcat
  7. Usually I don't even read those "blurbs" on Revell site, but just go straight for instruction download page. I hope that one for this model will be added soon.
  8. So Homebee posted dowloadable Nurnberg Toy Fair report by French magazine RVB Cocardes According to informations about Heller (page 34-35), in 1/72 Martinet is a Smer kit and Dakota is a Airfix kit. There is quite a lot about Alpha Jet, but some assistance would be needed with translation.
  9. And if I'm correct because those made by American Army aircraft names are now trademark of private corporations, there will never expire...
  10. So to sum up aircraft in 1/72 scale, I guess those kits with "30" as first two digits, are reboxes. Taken from Spielwarenmesse Nürnberg list. 30372 Douglas C-47 "DAKOTA" Q4/20 - a few candidates for rebox glow2b website link - 39,99 € 30388 Siebel 204 / SNCAC NC 701-702 "Martinet" Q3/20 - R.V. Aircraft sprues? glow2b website link - 17,99 €
  11. To be honest, IBG full catalogue have been already posted here: IBG Models 2020 catalog - programme
  12. Apparently, according to google translated discussion posted today on French forum via link in first post, Alpha Jet will be a new tool. This part was in English though:
  13. Video from Airfix. There is a trst shot/printed/prototype I guess of Spitfire about 9:53 Airfix part is from 7:19.
  14. I specifically did not used Zvezda as a example, because, well, that's a special case. For sure it is possible, and that's really great some companies do both once, but I just not take it as given.
