  1. Hi, We are delighted to announce that our newest kit for 2020, the 1:32 De Havilland D.H.82A, will be available in February. This iconic 1930s biplane has been repeatedly requested by you, our customers, via the web polls, emails and in forum discussions. When creating this model, we went the extra mile to ensure our edition is the most accurate 1:32 replica of this aviation icon ever released. We focused on cooperation with the Polish Aviation Museum (which displays the original aircraft in Cracow), as well as one of the most knowledgeable people on Tiger Moth’s - Mr John Adams. The kit will be offered in six colorful options, with decals for the following aircraft: • De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth, K2573/24, No 24 Squadron RAF, Hendon, 1935 • De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth, MO-159, LeLv26, Finnish Air Force, 1943 • De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth, PG-712/2, Royal Netherlands Air Force, 1946 • De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth, N6919/36, probably of No 1 EFTS, RAF, 1940 • De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth, G-ACDA, De Havilland School of Flying, Hatfield, 1933 • De Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth, DE745, assigned to the 353rd Fighter Group, USAAF Station 366 (RAF Metfield), September 1943 Kit includes: - 107 resin parts including clear resin canopy - 45 photo-etched elements - instruction - decals Additional information about this exciting new kit is available in out website (www.silverwings.pl) The Silver Wings Team

  4. Limited Edition 1:32 kit, the Yak 9 M/T - available September 2018. Pre-orders to become available soon. Stay tuned for more details!
  5. On 11th November Poland celebrates National Independence Day. This special day in the history of our country seems to be a perfect date to announce the model kit of an aircraft which played major role in Polish Air Force history during the World War II. Deep analysis of documentation, a pursuit of perfection in each detail and struggle with getting the complex surface detail correct - have eventually paid off. After many hours of conversations, planning, prototyping, modelling and fitting, our PZL P.11c in 1/32 scale is finally ready. We are very excited that we will are able to produce this model, and hope that you are pleased with it as well. The P.11c begins the Silver Limited Edition line. The kit does not only have a fancy box-art but also includes separate metal gun barrels, 82 photo-etched elements, 4 marking options, A4 poster, PZL logo sticker and two discs including museum photos and original manual. Here are a few photos of the new kit. Please visit our website, www.silverwings.pl to see all the parts photos of this exciting new kit and for ordering information. Sincerely, The Silver Wings Team

  9. At Silver Wings, we are always focused on providing high-quality kits of interesting subjects for our friends and customers. For 2015, we are pleased to announce some changes that we hope you find as exciting as we do! A long-awaiting kit, the previously announced Fokker D.XXI is now available to buy, and the PZL P.11 is almost ready and will become available during next two months. As we continue to branch out and expand our subject matter from our "silver wing" roots, we also have a couple surprises coming for fans of Italian and Russian aircraft. We have also made some changes to the design of both our instructions and boxes which we hope you will like! Additionally, we are pleased to announce a new category of Silver Wings Kit - the Silver Limited Edition kit. The concept with these kits will be subjects which we feel deserve a little something extra. The Silver Limited Edition kits will include a distinctive box design with original "in motion" drawings, a high-quality printed poster, additional metal parts (such as gun barrels), and increased amount of available markings included in the box. Silver Limited Edition kits will be produced in a very limited series which from definition will not be repeated once sold-out. Speaking of new kits, we are pleased to be able to kick off 2015 with our first new kit of the year, the Fokker D.XXI. It has three colorful markings schemes - two Dutch and one German. We are now ready to accept orders for this kit. Please write us at silverwings@silverwings.pl for order details or order via you local distributors website.

  10. Yet another 1/32 Stearman has been built. This time by Joe from USA. Thanks Joe !
  11. Dear Friends and Customers, Since the beginning of work on the Fokker DXXI and PZL P.11, we rightly assumed that they would be very ambitious projects. We want to give modellers a thrill while opening these boxes. The size and complexity of the models, which are their key advantages, have a decisive influence on the course of a production. Now, nearly completing the work, we can see how many details still need to be fixed. Releasing such historically significant subjects, we must make sure that any errors are eliminated to a level allowing full enjoyment of the box' content. Looking realistically at the current progress and remaining workload, we came to the conclusion that we need a little more time. The team is working at the maximum speed but we need additional few weeks and therefore have to move the Fokker DXXI's release date forward to the end of January. We feel that we owe you apologies for this. We admit we set the initial date too soon and it is our lesson for the future. We duly apologize and we thank you for the support you show us every day. We really appreciate it. It gives us extra strength. The Silver Wings Team
