Eduard’s 1/48 P-51 Mustang has won many plaudits since its initial debut. As CHRIS CLIFFORD finds out, it’s now been re-released in Mk.IV format as a special ProfiPACK boxing, with mixed-media additions and six fresh colour schemes.
Here’s another great multi-set ensemble from ICM, comprising the firm’s 1/48 Bf 109F-4 (48103), Hs 126B-1 (48212) and German Pilots and Ground Personnel set (48082) – and for almost 20% less than the cost of these items separately.
Special Hobby’s 1/72 Mirage F.1s have been hugely popular since their initial release, and this has been so true of the EQ/ED version (as used by Iraq, Iran, Qatar and Libya) that it has been reissued.
Arguably, Airfix revolutionised large-scale modelling with its 1/24 ‘Super Kits’; its Bf 109E was one of the last of the initial batch released between 1970-73, making it a logical inclusion in the firm’s Vintage Classics series.
As the only injection-moulded quarter-scale depiction of the type, Dragon’s 1/48 Junkers Ju 188A-2 Rächer (avenger) is highly sought-after, because it has not been available since the 1990s – happily, it’s been re-boxed by Revell.
