WE were really excited to see Kittyhawk bringing out a new model of the F-94C Starfire in 1/48th scale injection moulded plastic – not as excited I suppose as Eth was to build it! Here we go with part one of a several part build of this new kit from a new company – we expect good things from the first impressions of the kit we saw – let’s see if it lives up to our expectations…

We don't really see many mounted figures in the modelling world – mounted on flat frames that is! We love this type of “flat” modelling style which although looking hard to pull off I was assured it is a simple and fun way to model – we have included this along with all of the mounted figures we saw at the world’s leading modelling show held every year in England – the world famous Euro Militaire show!

The people from Reid Air Publications sure do love their F-16’s – they have no less than five titles covering this – the backbone of the airforces of the western world. The Fighting falcon or “Viper” as it is more commonly known by it’s pilots is arguably one of the prettier fighters of all time - and whilst we wait for their new book on one of the less “pretty” planes (their new opus on the modern A-10) I thought I’d show you this little gem….

“Get to ze chopuuuuuhhhh!!” ( Arnie accent) is immediately what came to mind when I saw this new kit from MasterBox in the Ukraine - it features five special forces figures escaping from “Victor Charlie” somewhere in Vietnam ( or maybe next door in Laos?) anyway let’s look at the kit to see what if the chopper turns up…
