Czech firm Peewit has been busy with new releases, with five new products catering for subjects as diverse as undercarriage bay masks to camouflage sets for a Czechoslovakian armoured car.

Air Graphic’s second batch of search and rescue helicopter schemes concentrates on two types operated by the US Coast Guard – the MH-68A Stingray (based on the Augusta A-109) and HH-65 Dolphin (Eurocopter/Airbus Helicopters AS365) – and offers 24 schemes.
Fans of Mirage 2000s and anniversary schemes are in for a real treat thanks to this sheet from Syhart, which provides decals for two specially marked aircraft.
Suitable for any 1/144 kit of the type, Decales Global’s markings supply the livery for Trans World Airlines (TWA) Boeing 727-100s with small logos behind the fore entry door.
Modellers with Revell’s 1/24 Ford GT Le Mans racing car can apply an alternative livery with these Decalpool markings – that of the #67 car raced at the Circuit de la Sarthe in 2019.
While later A-4s from VA-152 (nicknamed variously as Friendlies, Mavericks and Fighting Aces) are served poorly by kit manufacturers – just Fujimi’s 1/72 A-4B has markings for this squadron – there’s a thriving aftermarket scene, such as this example from MILSPEC for an A-4E assigned to the USS Shangri-La during the unit’s last operational cruise from March-December 1970.
Released to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, this sheet is focused on the 75mm main gun-equipped M4A1 Sherman, including snorkel-fitted and Duplex Drive ‘Donald Duck’ variants.
