Let the chatter begin: is this new kit 1:48, or 1:32..? Well, now we know!
Clever video production, helps whet biplane fans’ appetites…
Here’s this week’s News Desk…
Are you ready for the ultimate, Cold-War armour kit?
MiniArt look to be releasing an absolutely astonishing kit of the T-54B. Comprising over 1000 parts(!), this new offering from them will be a real tour de force in both kit construction and painting. Featuring a fully detailed interior, as well as working suspension, articulated tracks and superbly detailed hull and turret, those of you with aspirations to build the ultimate model of this famous vehicle, may just have found the means.
Tamiya have for as long as I can remember, been my favourite company, so almost anything that has those two stars on the box tends to bring a smile to my face
How a Quarter-Scale F-14 caused the sky to fall in. Almost.
You would think that the release of any new kit would be cause for celebration, but when that kit is joining the range of perhaps the greatest model making company on the planet, we should not only celebrate, but shout it from the roof tops.
Okay, maybe it’s just me that thinks the news that Tamiya are to release a brand-new F-14A Tomcat is cause for an outpouring of pleasure.

Great Wall Hobby reveal details of their next 1:48 kit – the delightful T-33
The Hyperscale website has just revealed details of GWH’s next 1:48, offering shots of the made-up kit and the options offered on the decal sheet. As you can see from this link, the model looks great once built up and the options of the decal sheet will certain provide the basis for a wonderfully colour addition to the display cabinet.
As you might imagine, we have no further information on this kit, but when do do, we’ll be sure to pass it. This is one that we are looking forward to…
It’s been a cold an miserable spring so far, so imagine the delight of those hardy souls that braved the elements to visit the Mach Loop in North Wales, when an F-22 Raptor dropped in for a visit. Apparently this is the first time this ‘Fifth Generation’ fighter has played at low level, so those that were there had a rare treat. Will it be back whilst the 48th Fighter Wing’s deployment to RAF Lakenheath continues – who knows. Chances are though, those that were unsure whether or not to visit the Loop, will now be champing at the bit to catch sight of a Raptor in the wild…
