to this version, and also featuring
a very extensive decal sheet. There
will actually be two Limited Edition kits available. I understand that
the 1:72nd scale Fokker D.VII MAG
will target a relatively narrow segment of modellers, but the 48th
scale MiG-23BN should be a whole
different ballgame. The concept is
very similar, as is the price, to last
year’s ‚Bedna‘ kit, the fighter versions of the MiG-23. This was, on
its own merit, able to cause a line
three times around the table, and
end a little ways outside the room.
On Friday, the lineups should not
be too bad. As a sidenote, there
will be some 180 Overtrees available for the MiG-23BN, which, although is some three times more
than for the fighter versions of the
-23, but that might not prove to
be enough. There will be plenty of
accessory items available for both
the Mustang and the MiG-23BN,
and details can be seen further below through this newsletter. There
will also be a collection of admissions models and some motivational items for displaying modellers.
What exactly the admissions kit
INFO Eduard - September 2019
will be is something that I will, as
in days gone by, keep to myself for
now, but it is not hard to guess.
Motivational kits will be in a similar
style, although the ship guys will
have it a little different.
Compared to all of the above,
the remaining new items for September might come across as a bit
inconspicuous. Despite that, they
will have their own charm and ability to attract on their own merits.
The new release of the P-400 Airacobra, a ProfiPACK kit in 1:48th
scale, is another in the long line
of Eduard Airacobras. It replaces
a kit of the same name that was released quite some time ago and is
long since sold out. Besides featuring a new boxart, there are all new,
save for one, marking options. This
kit also has the article by Mr. Sredl
associated with it, that appears in
this newsletter, and it’s certainly
worth the read. Perhaps, it would
be worth the potential firestorm to
present the depicted events from
a Japanese perspective. JaBo, in
the same scale, is a Limited Edition
item that depicts the Fw 190A-5/
U3 and A-5/U8.
The 1:72nd scale MiG-21MF
Fighter Bomber in the Weekend
line is self explanatory. You can
check out the marking options below, and the decal sheet is pretty
extensive, while the Polish naval
aircraft is very striking. Besides
these three kits, we are also releasing for September the long
sold-out Spitfire Mk.IXc in 1:72nd
scale. The noteworthy items in the
Brassin line include the cockpit for
Tamiya’s Spitifre Mk.IX in 1:32nd.
The home market will likely appreciate the sets for the 1:48th Siebel
Si 204D from Special Hobby and the
MiG-21F-13 in 1:72nd scale from
Modelsvit. There are obviously
a lot more in terms of accessories
being released this month, but
there is no need to get into them
in detail here, when you can easily
scroll down and see them for yourself here.
That will be all for now, and
I hope to see you at E-day.
