SUPER-SIZE STORM

Airfix has a long history of 1/24 scale ‘superkits’, and its returning Vintage Classics Hawker Hurricane is regarded as among the best of these from the firm’s 1970s-era offerings.

TRICOLORE SOVIETS

Brengun has produced a version of its 1/72 Yak-1B depicting aircraft flown by Groupe de Chasse 3 (3rd Fighter Group) ‘Normandie- Niemen’.

Review Premium

RECCE TUTOR

ICM has continued to expand its range of Foxbats, which now includes the first of two planned two-seater offerings in the shape of the MiG-25RU reconnaissance conversion trainer.

SPY IN THE SKY

There aren’t many kits of remotely piloted aircraft but Platz’s 1/72 RQ-4B Global Hawk is surely the largest.

Review Premium

RED STAR MIRAGE

Special Hobby’s lovely 1/72 Mirage F.1 returns in Revell boxing with spectacular markings for the disbandment of French Air Force Squadron EC 1/30 ‘Normandie Niemen’.

Review Premium

BUSY BEE

As with most of its new toolings, Eduard has followed the limited-production version of its 1/72 Z-37A Čmelák (bumblebee) with a Weekend Edition containing just the styrene parts.

WEIRD BUT WONDERFUL 'WASP'

Part of AB&K’s ‘Luftwaffe Secret Projects 1936-45’ series, this 1/72 resin kit depicts the unusual Heinkel Wespe (wasp) – designed to test vertical take-off and landing from a tail-sitting starting position.

THE BEST, BETTER?

Considering the type’s success, it’s surprising there haven’t been more kits of the T-33A. This offering from Italeri is a re-packaging of Platz’s 2012 tooling, making this an inspired match between the latter’s superb parts and the former’s gorgeous decals, with options for six airframes.
