  8. Hi all I think the question is not whether Eduard will release a 1/72 Mustang but rather when, it seems to me that all the kits produced by Eduard at 1/48 were also produced at 1/72 so let's be patient .. Patrice
  9. Good evening Today I placed the Eduard Instrument panel on their support I placed the Eduard belts on the seats I prepared the floor and side walls of the cockpit I also prepared the engine and the propeller Patrice
  10. Good evening For this Gb I will build the T6 G Academy kit I don't know yet wich unit I will represent The box art The sprues I have the Berna Decals sheet https://www.scalemates.com/kits/berna-decals-bd-72-19-na-t6-g-texan-and-snj-5--943086 And the LF Models sheet My reference I will also use the Eduard detailling set Patrice
  11. Good afternoon all I really hope that is true and It would be a very good news , I will take several boxes to go with all the Tamiya kits I have in my stash I even have some Hasegawa kits .. Cheers Patrice
  12. Good afternoon John I have already built several Eduard kits (spitfire Mk IX and Mk XVI) without having to use their after market products but who can imagine building a Mustang without fuel tanks or even the pylons to carry them ? luckily I was able to recover these parts from wrecks and used them on the KP/AZmodel Mustang Kits that I had built ... And I am affraid that it will be the same with the Tempest judging by the box arts of the Mk V above.. Cheers Patrice
  13. Good morning As far as I am concerned I will wait to see pictures of the sprues and even the first builds before buying this kit because I was quite disappointed with their Mustang and the lack of fuel tanks that were sold separately , I hope that KP wil not do the same with the Tempest .... Cheers Patrice
