ACE is producing a new kit of the Ka-25 Russian helicopter.  This looks to be an improvement over the old Airfix kit.

I am sure this is expensive, but if you are an F-14 fan, I can see this being worth it to you.

Ohka update

Got a little bit of modeling in over the weekend.  Not much, but enough to finally get the Ohka fuselage together.  I apologize for the crappy photos.  While the kit is fairly new, it definitely has a limited run feel to it.  The fit isn’t exactly Tamiya level.

I am a 72nd scale purist.  However, I have some exceptions to that rule.  If you are building airliners 1/144th make perfect sense. (Thought there are plenty of good 72nd scale airliner kits.)  If you build WWI aircraft, I understand those who build in 48th, or even 32nd scale. (Thank you Wingnut Wings)   However, if I was tempted to build a WWI aircraft in God’s One True Scale, I can’t think of a better one than the upcoming Eduard Fokker D.VII.  Having seen their 48th offering, I am sure it will be great.
