ICM’s 1/24 Model T Ford has been released in various guises since its initial offering in 2014, and this value-for-money package combines the five-seat ‘Touring’ version (24002) with the company’s American Motorist figures (24013) for less than buying both sets separately.
Modellers with Eduard’s 1/72 Fokker D.VII in their stash will appreciate this aftermarket release from the Czech firm, as it provides blue-toned ribbing tape for all areas of the aircraft requiring this covering, which supports the underlying structure on the real aircraft.
Modellers can replicate the unusual ‘inverted’ livery worn by the Belgian Air Force’s solo display F-16AM during the 2009 airshow season, thanks to these markings from Syhart Decal – sampled in 1/72 here, but also available in 1/32, 1/48 and 1/144 (32/48/144-082, respectively).
Although Yahu is known for its type-specific instrument panels, which are usually pre-decorated, the firm has recently expanded its range to include generic interior parts, such as its 1/72 seatbelts – this set is suitable for a World War Two-era US Army Air Force or Navy airframe.
