  1. The Polish wholesale company Hobby 2000 enters the 1/48 scale kit market with two reboxings of Hasegawa's P-40N Warhawk. We saw a limited re-release of the original Hase kit (JT71) earlier this year, and those who missed it can now choose between the two H2K boxings. Each features Cartograf-printed decals with two marking options and a basic mask sheet. Ref. 48001 P-40N Warhawk 'Aces of the 49th Fighter Group' Ref. 48002 P-40N Warhawk over CBI

  3. Apparently based on Eduard's 3D design, hope they fixed some of its issues, but even without this it will most likely be the best braille scale Emil. This month we get the E-4; E-3, E-1/E-5/E-6, T and export variants including the Swiss ones are to follow in 2021.
  4. The Williams Bros kit got a proper replacement from Azur-Frrom. Here's an inbox review of the first boxing, B-10 Export WC / WAN: https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-72-b-10-export-wc-wan-azur-frrom/
  5. As Quixote74 said, the price of this particular kit in Polish shops, such as this one: http://ksmodel.pl/sklep/szczegoly/hobby-2000-72029-a-4b-skyhawk-limited-edition-1-72-22408/ is around 54 PLN, which is less than 15 USD at today's PayPal exchange rate - is it a lot (don't know the typical Fujimi pricing)? I can understand that the US prices may be higher, because H2K doesn't have an official distributor in US yet, but they're working on it.
  6. Another Fujimi Skyhawk has been brought to the market by the Polish company:

  8. I meant the price of ladders and chocks, as these form the backbone of the LP range thus far. Regarding the availability in Exito store, the easiest way is to learn about this is to ask them directly.
  9. A new brand from Czech Republic is offering a range of 3D printed aircraft accessories, including ladders, wheel chocks and exhaust nozzles: http://lpmodels.eu/index.php?id_category=2&controller=category These products aren't particularly cheap, but the quality is impressive, especially considering they sell actual prints, and the required clean up is minimal. Here's an inbox review of their 1/72 and 1/48 MiG-21 ladders: https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/mig-21-ladder-and-chocks-lp-models/
  10. The kit was released, here's an inbox review: https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-48-republic-p-43-lancer-dora-wings/

  12. Yes, you can build two kits from the box, but the markings option choice is limited by the inclusion of two different fuselages - fuselage from sprue B is intended for options A-C, the one from sprue C - for options D-J - so you can build a combination of A, B or C with any option from the D-J range, but you can't build i.e. option D and E straight from the kit.
  13. Brengun has recently released a new kit of this drone helicopter, inbox review can be found here: https://www.kfs-miniatures.com/1-48-mq-8c-fire-x-brengun/

  15. Hobby 2000 is a Polish wholesaler of modelling products, which took advantage of being a distributor of such brands as Hasegawa and Fujimi, and started reboxing their products under own brand. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe they don't have official US distribution so far. Their products are mainly available in various European shops, and the likes of Hannants should have the Phantoms available soon. As for the Skyhawks, I don't have good news for you now - the two boxings released earlier this year have sold out completely, so unless some shop still has a stock of them, they won't available
