That looks very nice, it is one of the aircraft  I really like and there are some really cool schemes that can be done.

Nice.  I asked them and a 1/72 version is planned also.....

 

Yes! Yes! Superb! I wasn't far off cracking open my Aeroclub kit....nothing against the Aeroclub kit, but I would snap one of these up in 1/72.

I am looking forward to this one.  It is a great looking plane with some great markings possible and to have in current production standard will be great!

Is this a sister to the Hawker Hart recently announced?  Me want!  These guys will be joining WNW on a favourites bar at this rate.

No-no. It's boxart of late version, AR48002

I am almost tempted to say "who cares".  What a gorgeous example of box top painting.

The box art is rather eye catching. Anyone know who did the art work?

 

Edit

just spotted the name Eugeny Knaufer under the wing tip in both pictures. Must look him up

The guys had a stand at ModellBrno, so I asked them promptly about the expected release date, and the answer was July. Encouraged, I asked about 1/72, and they answered without hesitation "next January and 1/144 would follow too".
