1/72 -Northrop GAMMA by FRROM-Azur and Special Hobby

Recommended Posts

Great news! - so it is version Gamma 2e . The 2a/b are in Williams Brothers. Once I needed all Northrops so badly, taht made a scratch work to get Gamma 2d and Gamma 2e as well as Delta - basing Williams Gamma 2a...

 

By the way - there is still left Gamma 5 - an intermediate model between early gammas and Northrop A 17 Nomad. Gamma  5 is also interesting due to use in Spanish Republican colours. 

Cheers

  • Following the Delta, we will release the Gamma, in version 2E (Gamma Bomber), as employed by the Chinese. One of the camouflage schemes, chosen for the boxart, gives a plane used by french pilot William Labussière in China (but you will not get the version used by the Spanish Republicans, that was a slightly different plane). Expected release date:  end of April 2017

I for one am very happy about this future release from Azur Frrom and will order it from the big H when available, the Chinese version anyway.. 

I agree with J-W, would love a 1/72 Curtiss A-12 Shrike IM kit from rather than a resin one, in Chinese colours too, can we persuade you guys at Azur Frrom to produce one ?

Received mine on Friday 07/07.  Have to say it looks really good and I will be building it up next.  Please may we have a Curtiss A-12 Shrike in injected molded plastic and Chinese colors ?

Who is selling them? Couldn't find them when I looked

Got mine from Hannant's, via their future releases page, where you can advance order kits before to ensure you get what kits you want., hope that helps.
