If you've a look in the images herebelow you discover that this Tu-2T kit is quoted as B48003. So what about B48001 and B48002 kits?

Other Tu-2 versions?

Pre-ordable at Lucky Model. clap2.gif

For the moment this kit is just quoted as "available" (means "We don't have it, but may get it, perhaps, possibly in a while") so not yet "in stock". Just a matter of time I suppose.

Price P&P incl. +/- £ 24.00

That looks nice. Would look good next to Tamiya's Shturmovik. It's great to see some new VVS models coming out.

Regards,

Jason

Even with shipping, the site shows it for under $40USD. Not bad at all. The pictures of the moulding look good also. No telling what the fit is like, but it looks like it might be worth picking up for a VVS aficionado such as myself. Thank you for posting the link, V.P.!

Regards,

Jason

Nice - so they now have the GPW version(s) out. I see they have two variants - one the Tu-2S and one the Tu-2VS. The Tu-2S was the standard GPW version. Apparently the "VS" variant was the earlier GPW version.

Regards,

Jason

P.S. I remembered you were building one, V.P.; any more progress on that?

Nice addition to the family in the V models. Anyone have any idea if these can make WWII era aircraft at all? Just checked the net, and there is no mention made of the Tu-2V or VS models, but I am assuming they are linked to the assignment to the V and VS regiments of the Soviet Forces?
