Possible new tool 1:48 EF-111A.

Recommended Posts

I see listed on the Cybermodeller website that theres a new 1/48 EF-111A by Revell due in April. I also found it listed on the Hannants online shop as a future release. So begs the question who's tooling is this? Or is there an actual new tool F-111 on the horizon at last? The only 1/48 Ravens I know of are the Academy and the Hobbyboss ones. Both which leave a lot to be desired compared to how well represented so many other subjects are in this day and age. Can anyone actually shed some light on this?

One can only hope. We are due a reasonably accurate series of 111's.

I doubt it, with Revell it could be Academy

You're probably right.

With each new announcement I'm growing evermore pessimistic and hope full at the same time. I mean every time you don't win the lotto is another chance you can isn't it? 😬

Didn't Monogram also release one in 1/72nd many years ago? Probably the Revell one now I would think.

 

Also since you are asking, Caracal Models is planning on a new EF-111 decal sheet in 1/48th. He has scaled down a lot of his line so there is that.

A rerelease of the ESCI kit then


Monogram had an EF-111A kit in 72nd, my guess would be this is a re-release of the Monogram kit.
 

Revell has previously reboxed the MonoMolds twice before, see Scalemates timeline:

I thought Italeri reboxed the Esci kit, no?

So it being Revell who have in the part reboxed both Italeri and Monogram kits we dont really know what kit it will turn out to be.

Since the kit is not released no one has seen the contents.  However, history shows it will be a rebox of the original Monogram kit.

 

Revell reboxed the Monogram EF-111A. 

 

Italeri reboxed ESCI/Ertl/AMT F-111A & EF-111A. 

 

Revell never reboxed the ESCI/Ertl/AMT/Italeri F/EF-111A kits and scalemates supports that.

 

Scalemates also shows the 2020 Revell 04974 kit as a rebox of the original Monogram kit.

Well there you go.

 

I did look myself because I didnt think it was worth it as its all much of a muchness no matter what kit is used neither are really worth buying especially as Hasegawa released their electrid fox kit a while ago

Could / Should the thread title be changed from 1/48 to 1/72?
