Eduard 1/48 Spitfire series - What’s next?

After having purchased quite a few of the Edward 1/48 Spitfire models I’m absolutely hooked! From the early mk.I, through mk.IIa and IIb, Va, Vb, Vc, VIII, IXc, XVI, I think I’ve got enough work to get on with!

 

But I was just wondering if they are planning on any of the Rolls-Royce Griffin variants? Any rumours out there?

Yes we really need some PR's, a Mk.XI and a Mk.IV for starters would be great. They did mention when they did the Mk.IX that they might do a Mk.XI in the future. It would be nice if the did most Mk's and Seafires, but it might be a while before we see anymore but you never know the A6M was a surprise.

 

Cue the "not another Spitfire!" comments😉

I hope I haven’t broken the Rumourmonger rules by posting this as it’s not really a ‘wish list’ as such, but a genuine request to see if there are rumours of Griffon-engined Spitfires coming from Eduard that I had not heard of.

As mentioned before by Mr.Šulc, Seafires I.b, II, III, PR.IV, PR.XI, PR.XIX,

XII, before Griffon Spits( that for now have been dismissed).

Although one has to take all mentioned with a bit of salt regarding possible timeframes, it took Eduard seven years ( 2013-2020) between Late and Early Merlins , and taking into account that Mk.Vc has just been released + ambitious schedule, we may not wait seven years but few more years before another family is tooled.

Is that valid for 1/72 as well?

I would like them do a high backed MK XIV. For me, this is a real missing part in the whole spitfire story! I'd like Eduard to do it but I've also written to Airfix saying what about a dogfight doubles type set with a V1 rocket!
