Although it is a pretty good kit in itself it is funny that the new HK Models B-25 kit has seen many aftermarket extras made to improve it still further – more than it’s fair share some would say, and most we have been shown off here – well just when you thought we had it all covered we saw these beautiful looking wheels from the “Brassin” range from Eduard – are these new shoes “just right” or are they the emperor’s new clothes? Let’s look in our review

The new HK B-25”H” model in 1/32nd – we are assured it will hit the shelves in the US this week – well the decals supplied aren’t the strongest part of the kit – we have a remedy however – in the form of EagleCals sheet EC#146 – three different markings choices for three colourful ships – let’s look at the decal sheet a bit closer and show you the real aircraft to compare the accuracy shall we?

For as long as I can remember the only figures readily available for 1/32nd aircraft have been the somewhat mangled figures you get inside the kit box – usually sitting still - one hand on the joystick and not really very good – well David from Wings Cockpit Figures has come to our rescue with these beautiful figures for WWII ( and more WWI) aircraft. We have lots of images and their particulars – with a window to upcoming releases in our preview…
