Potez XXV(25)

For such an obsolete aircraft, the Potez 25 hung around quite a while.  Long enough to be used in wars in South America in the 30s, in Spain and even in some corners of WWII.  Now it looks like we will soon have a kit of it.  Sprue shots.

A company I’ve never heard of, Answer, has announced they are doing a C-295.  Why is this important?  Because Canada is purchasing 16 of them for the SAR role.  Canadians like Jim “Crazy Canuck” Bates are excited.  Stay tuned.

I’ve previously mentioned that I want to get the BPK 737 kits.  They’ve now shown the box art for the 737-800 kit.  I was hoping for SWA, but it looks like I’ll have to look to aftermarket.

I have never heard of Mars Models.  Nevertheless, they have a test build up of their to-be-released kit of the Do-23.  I’ve always liked this aircraft.  The Do-23 has a real 1930s vibe to it.  Can’t wait.

A great story from WWII.  I had never heard it before.  It makes me want to build a Boeing 314.

Well, I’d like to know more.  Apparently the kit is the Academy one, with new decals.  Not sure what other extras are in the “upgrade” but curious to find out.

OK,, internet, do your stuff.   I am interested in building a model of the U-64 (WWII version).  I’ve found one photo of the sub, and it doesn’t help much.  Can anyone out there point me to more photos or info on camouflage and markings.
