Visit us in Nuremberg at the Spielwarenmesse®

Though the question: what about the 2018 Kinetic 1/48th new releases/projects?

 

20501310.gif

I see five options:

- re-release of kits with new decals like the freshly announced F-16C (link) - main contenders are: F-5A/B Freedom Fighter, E-2C Hawkeye (link), Mirage III, CM-170 Fouga & AMX;

- new variants of existing kits with a limited number of new parts like Mirage III/5 or Kfir derivatives, single and two-seats MiRSIP, Milan, Nesher, Dagger, Finger, Cheetah etc.;

- new variants of existing kits with several new parts like Harrier GR.1/GR.3 link, Grumman C-1 Trader & E-1 Tracer or S-2Ts Turbo (Fire) Tracker; 

- kits already announced and in the pipe line (see picture herebelow): 1/48th M-346 Master link, F/A-18D ATARS Hornet link  (but also 1/72nd C-17 Globemaster link & 1/32nd F86F-30 Sabre link);

- Brand new type(s). Then which one? That's the question.

  • Dassault Mirage F-1 family? (Just to p. KH)
  • Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot"
  • etc.

All bets are off.

Answer to the end of next week!

Just wishes, a decent Soviet dominatrix, an Italian Beauty, and an ancient Indian (S/A) fortress.

Following your words I'm now dreaming about M.346 Master and Cheetah, two beautiful aircraft.  :wub:

 

Ciao.

I have heard from two sources a Cheetah B/D is in the offing. Easy to do from a Mirage IIID

Don't we need a new Messerschmitt 109 ??

:lol::lol: About as much as we need yet another damned Spitfire!!:P.On a more serious note, the Grumman E1/C1 definitely interest me. Frightened to think of what the C-17 might cost though.:think:. That will probably be on my wish list for a VERY long time!:worry:

I'd really like a Mirage 5. The Wingman Models version was far too expensive :)

"Mirage 5" is just an export designation. Different Mirage 5 versions have different external characteristics. Examples:

 

Mirage 5SDE with had a "Cyrano-radar nose"

Mirage 5BA which didn't have a radar

:analintruder: Monsieur Laurent!  (You're becoming this tad like a Berkut-wannabe...) :rofl2:

 

True, true... or just like the Mirage 5COA which I'm currently building with the aid of an Antarki 1/48 awesome resin cone conversion bit.

Incidentally, mon ami in La France, and speaking about the different Mirage 5 versions out there; have you ever gotten to build the Finger with the resin bits we traded back in... 2010, I guess?

Cheers, my mate.

Dagger not Finger if I remember correctly. No I didn't use it as I have no Heller kit to use it on. It's easier to work on the LatAm Kinetic boxing: Nesher nose provided, no need to rescribe.

Certainly, yeh; but it'd also be a lot more expensive than to use the good-old Heller kit for the Dagger conversion.

It just sprang to mind how ironic it will be not to have a Heller Mirage kit to use up there in La France... :hmmm:How come? I just had the Heller fellas sent me a replacement right fuselage half a couple months ago.

It'd be like not to have a juicy tenderloin steak for the Sunday grill down here in Argieland, sort of, y'know.

Cheers, my mate.

PS: Just to remain on-topic; me wants the GR.3 kit, by the way.

Yep; I'm using it as a shorthand for the radar-less versions (I would like to do a French one).

Even "radar-less" is vague when one is talking about the Mirage 5s... the Mirage 5BA nose is different from the Mirage 5F for example. If you want to build a Mirage 5F, you can wait for a dedicated boxing or you can buy the South America boxing and add Wingman decals.

Or Jon, why don't you better get the Wingman Models Mirage 5F Armée de l'Air kit in 1/48 instead? It's such a great kit with an awesome decal sheet.

Cheers,
