I am looking forward to get this kit. SB-2 is something I've always found extremely interesting. Wanna build one of Republican Spanish AF.

Looks like they've corrected the oval shape of the engine radiators. Way to go!

Oh me, oh my! That looks rather tasty. Had a soft spot for the SB-2 ever since I found a Novo kit of the type in a newsagents while on holiday as a nipper (picked up a Skua by the same manufacturer at the same time - and have been fond of that type ever since, too!). Looking forward to this being officially released in hopes I can put the recent purchase of the excellent monograph by Mikhail Maslov ("Tupolev SB") to good use!

Doubleplusgood news as the company website had been inactive for a while and I was fearing the worst.

That looks fantastic - but can I bear to part company with the MPM vacform that's in the stash?

I have three if that's any consolation - one started, with scratchbuilt wheel well detail and reworked air intakes. I'm all for giving old kits a chance, but in some cases - such as the mpm vac - finiteness of human lifespan enters the calculation.

This is great news.  I built their Il-4T model and really enjoyed it and will definitely add this no my stash.
