THE very good move ! Although old Parc/Aer/Encore (originally Apex) kit with its engraved surfaces wasn't all too bad.

Only these outline issues (wingtips, fin, top wing chord) were difficult to correct.

Waiting for the 72nd one (maybe two - depends on courtesy of my wallet)

Cheers

They will totally win me over if they do at least a few of the many civilian variants also

Indeed - There is PR-5 which was massivly produced

The difference is mostly in fuselage... Are they going to do it also? If no I will do scratch conversion.

I'm dancing a happy dance :penguin: !

I have one pre- PARC in pieces (Apex) ,  one in the box. Both have taunted me for years to improve them (as JWM has done superbly on his builds).

 

A new 1/72 is going to be superb. I hope it is here before Christmas 2017. The 1/144 shots look lovely; beautiful detail.

 

PS: @dora, Are there still plans for 1/72 Bf109 A-D? I'm waiting on starting yet another (troublesome) Avis kit, in the hope there will be an AMG. 

 

Best regards

 Tony, although this issue is not about Messerschmitt... :)

Forms for Bf.109 in 1/72 are already doing. Hopefully in a month I'll have something to show...;)

Eugen

I am now eding construction of all available till now R-5/R-Z family (R-5 by Apex & MPM and R-Z by Special Hobby)

But I think I will buy the 1/72 AMG kit - just as therapy after all scratch improvments to current kits...

1/144 model will be available at the end of January.

1/48 shape in the manufacturing process. I hope, in February-March it will be possible to buy already.

In 1/72 is still unknown.

 

Hmmm - well, that's not good news. I'll probably buy the 1/144 kit when it's released; the images you've posted make it look extremely well detailed, but it's the 1/72 version that I'm really hoping for! But, good news or bad news, thank you for your reply! :thumbsup:
