And yet, a bunch of their aircraft - fixed wing and helicopter - have popped up as Misterkit products over the last week or so!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

The Canadair CL-215 has been rereleased.  Great kit, I've got the 415, I need one of these.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Awwwwwwwwwwww, did you have to put that link up?
The bottom of the Heller page shows they are also re-popping the Potez 540 and the Bloch 210.  Neither of which I have in the small French compartment of the stash and both of which I now feel compelled to hunt down.

Oh, I love these French 1930's types. Have to keep my eyes open for them.

If it's any help to your wallet, the Smer boxing of the Potez is still around and (at least over here) 2/3 the price.  Wallet's still dented, just smaller one.....  :angel:

A lot of what I have already are SMER repops.  Their transfers are rarely any good though.

Odd - the few Smer kits I got the decals (IIRC by Propagteam) were pretty decent,  certainly better than the Heller ones.  I got the Misterkit repop of the Heller Tempest simply because of a different decal option to the usual Closterman/Beamont markings.

The ones I got are too translucent.
For example.
