Mister/Mastercraft
« on: April 19, 2018, 06:35:46 am »
I think we do not have a thread for this low-budget brand from Poland, but it's worth a start because - beyond vintage KP, Intech, Plastyk and other (partly revamped) vintage stuff, there's apparently a good offer out there right now: a reboxed Heller Fouga Magister (which is IMHO light years ahead of the primitive Airfix thing that is still around). In itself, this is goos news, but - as a side benefit - this kit comes with loads of interesting decals/markings:



Just ordered one, and I hope that the molds are not too worn. Otherwise, this looks promising for just around EUR 10,-.  ;D

I've picked up some of their stuff at shows Dizzy' and there's nothing wrong with it at all. Ideal as feed stock for your creations I would have thought.

My only slight problem with them is the packaging. Some of the boxes are a lot larger then the kits and the plastic rattles around inside them a bit in transit

the price is the same as the Heller boxing, not a big fan of the Mistercraft boxes, however the newer releases are in some way decent, and they make for a great source of decals  :thumbsup:

I got one of their reboxed Heller Tempests a year or so back for the decals.

Nothing spectacular,
but the "new" Pe-2 1/72 model
is already on sale.
On my eye, Zwezda's repack with loads of interesting decals/markings.  :rolleyes:
This looks promising for just around EUR 7. ;)
