In brief


Keen modeller Gary Marples helped us tremendously with his first KitBase computer package, to help record kits, aftermarket items and more.

Now, the tech wizard has updated the programme to KitBase 2 standard; it offers a new database engine designed ‘from the ground up’ to synchronise across devices (desktop, mobile), an import tool to transfer KitBase 1.4 lists to KitBase 2, and a brand-new form designer, so one can rearrange data entry to one’s desired layout. The tabbed format also has new References and Paints tables, and revamped search filters. For further details, visit:


Fans of race cars will welcome Profil24’s new release…a stunning Lancia D20. This 1/24 mostly resin kit also offers photoetched metal wheel spokes and rims, among other fine details. It also comes with enough decals to depict 1953 Le Mans cars #30/31/32/63 and #76 from the same year’s Targa Florio endurance race. Check out for further details of this and other releases, which include a re-issue of the firm’s 1/43 Ford GT40 kit (Le Mans 1968-69).


In last month’s issue, the incorrect web address for Tetra Model Works was included in the US Tank Destroyer M10 accessory set (ME-35047) review. The correct address is: Apologies to Tetra Model Works and you the readers for this mistake.
