Looks like there's no thread for this company, so here's a start.  A CBI RAF Liberator.  It's the Academy 72nd scale kit with etched frets, masks and new decals.

Another Profipack job: the Lysander Mk.III. This doesn't look bad at all for £25.00 (probably cheaper elsewhere too), given how much it would cost for all that resin, brass, decals and mask:

Couple of slightly strange ones too: photoetch sunflowers and vines...... :unsure: I can see the diorama potential in theory, but how is photoetch EVER going to look realistic.....

Eduard scaled down their gorgeous Fishbed and now offer it in 1/144! :party:
It will be a limited release for the 2011 Eday and will be available as a regular kit in November.

Pics HERE and HERE.

Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Anyone got any ideas what markings are gonna be in the box of the new 1/48 Bf109  ?  Ive seen lots of nice close up shots of the sprues but not the decals....

Funny you should mention that.  Today's Hyperscale has a pretty good an inbox review, along with details of the markings, by Brett Green.

There's so many already available by Eagle Cals, Eagle Strike, Sky Decals etc, etc, etc... And it will most likely be released in the usual separate boxings - standard, weekend, profi-pack and dual combo, I would respectfully suggest that you wont be short of options, Chris.

Thats very true... But it would be nice if you didnt HAVE to buy extras if you didnt want too, an OTB build is nice sometimes  ;D

Ian the Kiwi Herder

Now THAT I will agree with !!  :thumbsup:

The answer is here !

http://www.hyperscale.com/2012/reviews/kits/eduard8261reviewbg_1.htm

Four marking options are included:

    Yellow 11, Fw. Arthur Beese, 9./JG 26, August 1940

    Red 1, W.Nr. 4027, Hptm. Hannes Trautloft, Staffelkapit√§n 2./JG 77, September 1939

    Brown 13, Fw. Kurt ,,Kuddel" Ubben, 6.(J)/TrGr.186, March 1940

    Yellow 2, 6./JG 52, Calais, France, September 1940

It does mean theres no Adoph Galland which is nice for a change if im honest...




Ian the Kiwi Herder

Did Galland have a E-1 ??
