Great And not before time - I can't believe that the old Revell kit is STILL the only 1:32 Beaufighter around!

 

Mind you, it will need to have the Sperry autopilot fairing to be perfect ...

At least the ancient Revell moulding can be put out to pasture, now. I'm very surprised it's taken this long to get a second, I.M. 1/32 Beau on to the market. Very good news.

Knowing nothing about Infinity Models, will this be a plastic or resin kit?

Infinity Models is the brand for the guys at HpH who do those delightful expensive resin models. They announced a while back that they were going into injected plastic kits and have already produced a 1/32 Helldiver. A 1/32 Aichi Val is also projected and a DH Vampire as well among others. So far their products are very good quality

I wonder if the old Revell Beau will entirely go out to pasture?  I’ve not heard it has shape issues unless I missed that. If so it can still be a canvas for early marks.  Also a donor kit to “improve” the 1/32 Sanger Beaufort

Revell will likely continue to re-release their Beaufighter kit as long as the molds last because:

a/ the Infinity kit doesn’t make money for Revell

b/ the Revell Beaufighter plays to an entirely different market that won’t consider buying a kit for the likely asking price of this new Infinity tooling

 

and

c/ the Infinity kit doesn’t make money for Revell.

Quite right

 

On rereading my post what I was thinking (but not quite communicating!) was will modellers desert the older moulding or will it still have its uses as a cheaper starting point for whatever as it were? 
Am a bit conscious that this has the danger of thread drift away from the Infinity kit so really just a rhetorical question there

Hi

    Might be worth them releasing a merlin MkIIf first

 

 then hercules engined ones later 

 

    It would most likely make more money for them

 

    and force me to buy one 

 

and maybe others to buy as well ? 

 

        cheers
