Apparently Special Hobby has released the first images of their upcoming Ki-54 Hickory.  This will fill a much needed hole in WWII Japanese aircraft.

Special Hobby has released the box art for their upcoming Potez 25TOE.  As luck would have it, those are the markings I’d like to do it in, which I believe are an aircraft in French Indochina.

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.

Special Hobby is doing another release of the Delta, this time with Skis and Floats.  Since I want to do a Delta on Floats, this is manna from heaven for me.

Looks like Special Hobby is releasing a night intruder version of the Boston.  From the illustration it looks like an RCAF bird.
