This is different from the lecture that was given at E-Day on Saturday, September 23rd. The part
outlining new releases for October is shortened, because they are now widely known. On the
contrary, I have added several pieces of information that were either missing from the lecture in
Milovice or were not quite accurately expressed.
NEW KITS OCTOBER 2023
The 1:72nd scale ALBATROS kit is not new, but a face lift of an older
item. A mold of the original kit was seriously damaged in an accident
a few years ago. This year, the mold was repaired, which mainly
meant replacing the part with the fuselage. This mold is of a so-called
galvanized type, made of copper, and spare parts to repair the mold were
made using the original dies. In addition, we designed and manufactured
a new canopy that corrects the unsatisfactory and oft criticized shapes
of the original item.
An L-39C belonging to the state owned LOM facility put on an aerial
display at E-day.
The Su-25K, known here as ‘the Rake’, in 1:48th scale, is a LIMITED
edition kit. The moldings come from the Russian company Zvezda. The
kit is thematically dedicated to Su-25K service in the Czechoslovak,
Czech and Slovak air forces. It also contains an illustrated publication
by Martin Janoušek. This kit is currently sold out and is not expected to
be re-released anytime soon.
At E-day, there was a discussion with Su-25K pilots, Lieutenant Colonel
Tabaček and Majors Roztočel and Seidl.
The Z-526 Trener Master in 1:48th scale is
the latest kit in the Trener line thus far. The
aircraft from the main picture, piloted by Radim
Vojta, was also put on a flight demonstration in
