  1. Six boxings are planned: PE4401 Bell H-13J/HUL-1 (US VIP Transport, US Navy, US Coast Guard)(2in1) PE4402 Agusta-Bell 47J Ranger (Italian Navy, Italian Army, Italian Police)(2in1) PE4403 Agusta-Bell 47J Super Ranger (Carabinieri, Italian SAR, Italian AF) (2in1) PE4404 Agusta-Bell 47J Ranger (France, UK, Spain)(2in1) PE4405 Bell H-13J-2 (Brazil, Chile, Argentina)(2in1) PE4406 Agusta-Bell 47J Ranger (Yugoslavian AF, RDAF, RNoAF)(2in1) https://www.lfmodels.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=2_26_115
  2. After LF Models successfully scaled up their injection moulded Augusta-Bell 47J family from 1/72 to 1/48, is the intention now to scale them down to 1/144
  3. The market changed, when I began buying from Squadron, there were no proper web shops, or eBay but they sent their catalogue and monthly supplements in the post to me. And there were American kits from Revell, Monogram and Academy that were hard to find in Europe. Now I can order kits from new companies in Central and Eastern Europe as well as China via eBay or web shops in those countries with cheaper and faster postage long before they are in stock in the USA. They will struggle to make Squadron great again....
  4. I would like to see one in Draken colours They are one of the main Mirage F.1 users at the moment - https://theaviationist.com/2021/05/25/draken-mirage-f1-crash/
  5. A better chance to see one in 1:72 scale from one of the Polish producers - we might even get it injection moulded,
  6. As a foreign visitor to Britmodeller with English as my tertiary language, I just did a copy and paste of the contents in an Email originating from England. I still think the meaning is clear; the 1:72 Beaufort kit is close to seling out and Airfix is doing another production run. It is a really nice kit of an often overlooked WW2 aircraft and deserve to be a bestseller - enabling the team in Margate to develop new releases.
  7. Just got this message from Airfix and it is still on Hannants top selling list (number 4 this week) - so sales must meet expectations: 1:72 Bristol Beaufort Mk.1 Less than 20 remaining We have less than 20 in stock at Airfix.com. But please don't worry if you miss out, we are expecting further stock to arrive soon!
  8. It would be nice to have in 1/72 - showing its size compared to other Soviet/Russian aircraft. Goes with the other flying boats intended for operation with the Northern Fleet close to Norwegian waters. In 1:350 ship scale, it would be too small for Takom to bother. Interior pictures in the link below and YouTube has a story to tell https://zen.yandex.ru/media/lanasator/ekranoplan-lun-proekta-903-v-derbente-udalos-oboiti-ohranu-i-popast-vnutr-5f30e9b9bbe8572b801cebe9
  9. This seller seems to have it at a more reasonable price - but I have not ordered from them yet. https://daiyee.com/shop/
  10. The C-46 was used by some of the most popular to model air arms: China, Israeli Air Force, Japan Air Self-Defense Force, South Korean Air Force. United States Air Force, United States Marine Corps & United States Navy And civilian operators like Lufthansa, FOF in Norway and the ones hauling cargo in Alaska and Northern Canada are also quite popular.

  11. I think the boxtop shows one of the rebuilt Il-2s flying with an Allison engine causing the propeller to rotate in the opposite direction.
  12. In the list as AerolĂ­neas Peruanas - one of their aircraft even got hijacked and flown to Cuba!
  13. They are still remembered here in Norway for an attempted landing in the Oslofjord instead of at the airport some distance away. The captain who was flying the aircraft was unable to communicate with ATC due the language barrier, fortunately another crew member understood the "climb, climb, climb for Gods sake" calls from Oslo tower.

  14. Sorry, I searched the forum for C-295 and C295 and didn`t find the old thread with the dot in the name.
  15. According to https://www.scalemates.com/kits/answer-plastic-kits-aa7200-casa-c-295m--1218974 Answer Plastic Kits intend to release CASA C-295M in 1:72
