Good idea Greg, thought about Fowler for the name but that's a bird hunter so would probably be better for a fighter? :blink:

Dragon USA says that the Recon version of the 1/48th Draken is due in July (2 Swefdish S35E & 2 Danish RF-35) as is the 1/48th AEW Sea King kit with resin and metal parts.

The new tool 1/32nd Ki44-II is due then too.

Aero Scale has an in box review of the 1/48th J7-W2 Jet Shinden by Rowan Baylis.

Interesting it already comes ready for whiffing with Luftwaffe decals as well - that's too easy:  I'm thinking maybe RAF or RAAF!

Hasegawa's next new aircraft has been discovered! It's a Kawasaki T-4 egg plane of the Blue Impulse team!

Hasegawa are releasing a kit of the YF-19 Fighter from the Macross Plus anime in 1/48th scale! Pre-order price from HLJ is £27.17 (no postage price is available yet). I saw this several days ago and thought the scale was a typo! Figured it was a repop of the 1/72nd kit but I found a picie link on Starship Modeler.

This is a sneak peek from HLJ of the Shizuoka show, there's not much that hasn't been seen already I'm afraid, the new Shoki in 1/32nd, US Navy E2C Hawkeye 2000 and a 1/48th F-16 of the Alaskan aggressors. My favourite is the already announced 1/48th YF-19 from the Macross Plus anime.

Cybermodeler has done an in-box review of the 1/48th F-16I Sufa, no Israeli specific weapons or targetting pods supplied.

Which makes the Kinetic kit, which is loaded with load-out, pods and drop tanks, even more 'buyable' - I just made-up that word, hope you don't mind :blink:

Agree with you Ian, Kinetic has a hell of a lot of gear in it. Thinking of getting one just for all those weapons etc.  It's definitely more buyable!

Me too. Together with RoG's Rafales and Typhoons, and Hasegawas Weaps Set 'E' you have just about the entire range of current A2A & A2G ordnance....... All you need to do is find a 1:48 F-16XL to hang it all on !

G'day Gang,

A sci-fi flavour for this Hasegawa review over on Cybermodeller.  It's the Pkf 85 Falke from the SF3D/MaschinenKrieger series.  At 20th scale, it's well over 'normal' 35th scale troopies, and I can only guess that the originators of the genre decided to go with the bigger scale for the detail.  Either which way, looks like a little corker.

Mav

Ma.K kits are all in 1:20, as many of the models are of armoured suits rather than vehicles which would be rather small in 1:35.

The Falke looks excellent, though a little on the pricy side (but then it builds into a fairly large model).
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

I think they would look good in 1/35th or even 1/72nd.  Nitto did the Nutrocker in 1/76th that came with one of the power armors.
That thing just needs a better looking turret.  Don't know if Hasagawa is going to release that one or not.
