Now this is great news.  I've been pondering trying to find the old Nichimo kit since, AFAIK, there's nothing fundamentally wrong with that kit.  I'll probably hold off now until Wingsy releases more info...it's not like I don't have 40+ kits in the stash to keep me occupied in the meantime. :)

Hey Amaru,

 

Any news on the Antarki A-17?  Sorry for the thread hijack but it's been quiet for some time regarding the A-17.

 

Many thanks,
Mark

The first renders of the СAD – model of our new project is Ki-51 "Sonia" in 1/48-th. These are the basic surfaces on the basis of which our new model will be designed. This is not the final version and it is possible that in the process of working, some points will be changed.

When you say “Sonia”, every modeler or fan of Japanese aviation will tell you that this is the code name that received the icon of the Japanese front-line aircraft of the WWII, the multipurpose assault aircraft IJA Type 99 Ki-51. Today we are pleased to tell you that we have completed the design of our new model of this very interesting aircraft and are ready to show you the 3D rendering of the pre-production CAD model. We know that we spent a little more time than originally planned for this project and this is primarily due to the fact that there is very little reliable information on Ki-51. About the release dates and versions in which our new model will be released, we will inform you as we move forward on it. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay with us.
