    Airfix for 2019

    They are going for moulds that can be changed to give multiple versions; both the Buccaneer and the MiG-17 are likely be released in several iterations over the years to come. Two new cold war kits, but only variations of earlier WW2 releases this time.

    Zvezda 2019 catalogue

    Happy to see a new Pe-2 to modern standards in 1/72, especially if Begemot also scales down their decal sheet. Maybe Zvezda will come around to do a decent MiG-3 as well one day. And I am also happy to see more airliners from Zvezda, both Western and Russian

    Revell 1/144 AN-225 Mriya??

    For a sort of walk-around of the still not finished second An 225: https://edition.cnn.com/travel/article/antonov-an-225-kiev-ukraine/index.html

    Arma Hobby 2019 new releases

    Could it be that they go for a Soviet or French aircraft flown by Polish pilots. French Caudron C.714, Morane-Saulnier M.S.406 & Koolhoven F.K.58 were flown during the battle of France. Soviet Yakovlev Yak-1, Yak-7, Yak-9, Petlyakov Pe-2 & Ilyushin Il-2 were used by Polish units under Soviet control and formed the nucleus of the newPolish AF. It would be nice to have a modern 1:72 kit of the Pe-2 or either Yakovlev. There is a Pe-2 and two Yak-9Ps in Polish museums available for measuring up. British/US HP Halifax and Lancaster are a bit large for a small company Mosquito FB IV and NF XIII more manageable Hurricane IIC could probably use some of the lessons learned from the first Hurricane kit Mustang Mk.III and IV were flown by Polish squadrons later in the war.

    Zebrano 1/72 Lebedenko 'Tsar' Tank

    Cheaper than the resin kit from Kora Koras resin kit
  7. Hei, They are releasing AFVs/tanks in 1/72 & 1/35, airliners and transports in 1/144, military aircraft in 1/144, 1/72 & 1/48 and an Imperial Star Destroyer lately. So yes, they are releasing a mix of completely new moulds and updated/old moulds. http://zvezda.org.ru/en/ According to the their web site is the T-35 in 1/72 with 237 parts recommended for 7 years and older - so Russian modellers are quite good from an early age!

    Airfix 2019

    The team from Airfix that visited Flysamlingen in 2014 to document the He 111, returned earlier this year to measure up another aircraft. With some 40 airframes in the collection, which one(s) are on Airfix hit-list? Overview over the aircraft
  9. Hei, Killingholme asks: Anywhere in EU you can purchase these kits? I have bought Jet & Prop kits as well as other hard to get kits made in Russia and Ukraine from ModelsUa in Ukraine. No problems with communicating in English and getting the kits shipped to me in Norway. https://modelsua.com/Prop-and-Jet.html MVH Knut Erik
  10. Looks like an upgrade from the Airmodel vacuform and the injection moulded Mach2 kits of this aircraft. Wekusta 5/6 operated one of these in Norway (Ar 232A-08/10: Code TC+EG) http://www.forums.luftwaffedata.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=681&view=previous Image on Pinterest

    Airfix 2019

    The C-130 Hercules deserve an updated kit. Airfix can make several versions by planning ahead - H, J and stretched J for RAF and other European nations and US gunship. 1/72 is the right scale for it, too large in in 1/48.

    Northrop N-3PB, 1/48 scale resin kit.

    There is a restored N-3PB in Flysamlingen at Oslo Airport: https://www.flysam.no/utstillingen/flyene/northrop-n-3pb/ It is probably a better reference than kits and not too difficult to access. There is a booklet by Cato Guhnfeldt on the N-3PB that was released at the time of the restoration which I consider the best documentation on the aircraft. Guhnfeldt, Cato. Sagaen om de norske Northrop-flyene på Island (in Norwegian). Oslo: Sem&Stenersen, 1981. ISBN 978-82-7046-025-0. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_N-3PB I can put together a package on an FTP server on the N-3PB when I get released from hospital, in best case a few weeks from now.

    Northrop N-3PB, 1/48 scale resin kit.

    Just remember to check the drawings of the pedestals between floats and wing against photos, they have been made too short in some of the earlier kits, possibly because they were based on drawings showing an earlier version than what was actually built - they needed more room under the fuselage for torpedoes and other weapons.
  14. Hei, The aircraft on the picture that are below number 054 (ANT-29), can you identify them?
