1/72 - Heinkel He.114A/B/C by Bat Project - released

Recommended Posts

By far the best and most exciting announcement from my point of view. Looking forward for these kits!

Though the He-114 has been done by Planet and Mach 2, at least the canopy will be injected plastic and usable! So I likely will pick one up eventually, though it might not be tops on my wish list.

I hope they will do it on basis on right drawings, the Mach 2 kit has wrong proportions, I do not know the Planet resin one.  The boxart looks very promising regarding details and general layout - it does look like He-114.

Anyway congrats to Bat for finding apparent gap in market!

Cheers

50$ for THAT ???

Are they for real ?

Special hobby sells similar sized kits for 15$ and so does every other manufacturer.

50$ is the upper end of 4 engine heavy bomber category price tag.

I was really excited about this release, but the reason behind such a horrible price might be in the size of run. 200 examples of each boxing, meaning the total output of 600 units from the tool, which is way under any economical sense. Such a low run means high unit costs and to be honest, I don't see the reason for such decision. What a great turn off!
