March releases from Fantastic Plastic are not making us blue...

Fantastic Plastic have sent us news on their latest newly released kit the The Aerospatiale SA-2 "Samson" Gunship from the movie AVATAR in 1:72  -  They have all of the amazing hovering aircraft (as well as the massive shuttles) on sale now with this last in the series helicopter completing the set - take a look....

Here it is, folks, the final kit in our AVATAR model series: The Aerospatiale SA-2 "Samson." This is the powerful twin duct fan-powered gunship so memorably flown by Michele Rodriguez in James Camera's 2009 sci-fi epic. Part 22nd century Blackhawk helicopter, part Sky crane, the Samson served as our heroes' principal transport for much for their adventures on the exotic moon Pandora.
Our new 1:72 kit captures the Samson in all its glory. It features a detailed cockpit interior, passenger/cargo section with machine guns, a clear vac form canopy and decals.

The pattern is by Alfred Wong. Casting is by Millennium Models International (MMI). Decals are by JBOT.

The Aerospatiale SA-2 Samson is available now in the Fantastic Plastic Virtual Museum Store for $75.00 USD plus shipping.

The Aerospatiale SA-2 "Samson" is the flying workhorse of the 22nd Century's Resource Development Administration (RDA). Part transport, part gunship and part sky crane, the "Samson" is capable of operating in a variety of environments from tropical jungle to frozen tundra.

The Samson carries a variety of light weapons including door-mounted MBS-9M Hydras or M60 machine guns as well as side-mounted rocket pods. 

Released in February 2012, the SA-2"Samson" was the fourth and last kit in Fantastic Plastic's "Avatar" series. Patterned in 1:72 by Alfred Wong and cast by Millennium Models International (MMI), the Samson featured a full interior and clear vac form canopy.
