THE 1/48 MACCHI 33 PROJECT:

Hi All, 

Our next 1/48 kit will be the Macchi 33!

If we reach our usual goal of 60-70 preordered copies of Macchi 33 we start the work immediately.  Please note pre-registration is valid for only 10 days!

Our plan is to release the kit for Mosonshow in April 2024
Regarding the price, we will offer the kit for 80 EUR, with free shipping everywhere in the planet for those who sign up in advance. 

For those who preorder it this time not only the shipping is free, but we add free rigging wire set as well.

Beaching gear set will be available separately if you wish to add you can do it in the order form for 10 EUR

As the schedule is quite tight, we will close the sign up in 10 days and free shipping and rigging wire set is not included in the price anymore. 
We are not asking payment in advance, but will send a notification when the kit is ready to ship.

We kindly ask you to sign up only, if you really buy the kit when released.

Yet another Schneider races participant.... 

You say it like it is a bad thing ;)

It's tempting. The 33 did not win any event but it was the last and fastest flying boat of the entire competition.

"the bad thing" I is not exactly what I wanted to say - the Schneider trophy was a exiting filed of development of airplanes. I just wanted to note the context of this airplane... :)

I am working on a kit that has cast white metal and it is awful!  I really love the brass struts on this kit, so much better than the "good ol days".

There's nothing on this model that can't be done equally well with contemporary injection molding.  I don't know how they can justify their prices.  80 Euro for the kit, another 10 for the beaching dolly, and another 8 for the rigging wires?  I don't mind paying for quality, but at $100 this is far too small a bird for me.  I'll wait for AMP to complete their Schneider series in plastic.
