MiG15 by SMER, 1/72 scale

Recommended Posts

In somewhere on web I've read about the Mig15 by SMER due in 2020 as an Eduard rebox ? Any confirmation ? Currently SMER is shipping 4 new MiG15 boxes to the shops at a really competitive price, if it is the Eduard kit. thank you.

Some of the Smer boxart looks a lot like the KP boxart.

 

I'd assume KP unless I found out otherwise.

in the past SMER reboxed some Eduard WWI kits: Fokker DR1 and Fokker EIII for instance, I think some Albratross also.

That box art looks like an image one of the various KP incarnations have used in the past. 
 

I think it will be the old tool KP kit in the box.

FWIW, Modelimex has four Smer boxings, at least one of which is listed as a MiG-15bis. KP never did a -bis, although it wouldn't be the first time a manufacturer played fast and loose with somewhat obscure designations. My money is on Eduard as the original source of the Smer kits; unfortunately, Modelimex doesn't show sprue images to confirm this.

Confirmed (if we can call it this way) by Scalemates - reboxed old KP/Kopro/Mastercraft from 1979.

Still with the Mystere-like vertical fin...

Cheers

Huh - I'll be darned - I was wrong! Well, if Scalemates is correct, that's good to know - I had one or two other items from Modelimex in mind, and I was going to include a Smer MiG-15 in the order as "research" into the kit's origins. Now I can save my money. Thanks, Michael!
