News from Silverwings

We've just received word from Wojtek at Sliverwings that they're bring two more great kits to market in March 2011, and here's a quote from their release:

with great pleasure that we can now tell you that we will

soon be releasing not one, but TWO new 1/32 scale kits!

These new kits are a Gloster Gladiator Mk I / Mk II and a Hawker Hart.

The Hart was the first multi-role aircraft and one of the most versatile

aircraft of its day. Produced initially as a bomber, it was also developed

into a fighter, trainer, Army cooperation and target tug aircraft. Our new

kit, the first ever Hart produced in 1/32, will include the following

markings:

- 601 (City of London) Squadron, Auxiliary Air Force, Hendon, 1934

- 11 Squadron, Risalpur, India, 1937

The Gladiator is one of the best known biplane fighters in the world. While

outclassed by the newer monoplane aircraft at the start of WW2, the

Gladiator remained in front line service until 1941. The Gladiator served

admirably in the Norwegian campaign, in the Mediterranean and with the

Finnish Air Force and others. This new kit will include the following

markings:

- 247 Squadron (the only RAF squadron to participate in the Battle of

Britain), 1940

- 1/LeLv 16, Finnish Air Force, 1942

- 72 Squadron, Church Fenton, 1937

We are also pleased to announce that we have partnered with a leading decal

manufacturer, Pheon Models, to produce several additional decal options for

these kits. More information from Pheon Models soon.

Kits available in sales in March 2011.

Having seen the resin from the original Sea Gladiator release, I know we're in for a treat, and seeing that Rowan is involved with some additional decals makes me extra happy :yahoo:

I've attached a rather nice PDF brochure for you to have a squint at, just to whet your appetite. Just click the link to launch it in a new window :)

They look great don't they Mike. The Sea Gladiator is fantastic and if the new two are up to that standard, we are definitely in for a treat.

BTW, do you read your emails :winkgrin:
