When I got back into modeling in the early 1980s, one of the first models I built was a Matchbox Mirage as an Israeli Mirage IIICJ.  As you can imagine, it was a rough kit.  We’ve really needed a new IIICJ.  Modelsvit has come thru for us and I must say I want one, or two.

On the Plastic Model Mojo podcast a few months ago I was talking with Mike about the abundance of new 72nd scale aircraft kits that have been released in the last few years. I talked about how few mainstream subjects were left that needed updating. One aircraft I did mention is the C-46. Well, it turns out Valom must have heard me. (ha). They have announced a new C-46, in several different boxings.

An injection Ki-54. Now, if it isn’t too much trouble, can I get a Ki-57?

New HS-126

Brengun has announced a new Hs-126.  This is good news as the previous kits of the Hs-126 are well over 30 years old,. if not older.  The HS-126 was used by several smaller air forces and a new kit will surely be better than current offerings.

No, not that Arma.  But I am not to proud to admit, I need this kit in my life.

This company out of Hungary does some of the finest resin kits of some very unusual subject. Here is a lovely build of their Caudron C.450. I have two SBS kits in the stash and need to get them onto the table.
