Czech Master Resin \П2 Scale – No.5004 Hansa W.12/V ■

Czech Master Resin has issued two 1:72 scale kits, both from updated toolings of previous kits. Hansa-Brandenburg W.12/III (Short fuselage) has decals for three machines: ‘1183’, flown by Obit R. Friedrich Christiansen, 1917; and ‘2008’ and ‘1414’, Zeebrugge, October 1917, while Hansa-Brandenburg W.12/V (long fuselage) has decals for two machines: ‘2120’, with a Bremen coat of arms and ‘2108’. The kits cost £27.50 each.


From Dujin in 1:72 scale resin comes the Focke-Wulf/Lippisch Delta III, priced at £23.15. No decals are supplied, but the simple markings should be easy enough to obtain from the spares box.

 And ‘Orange’ is not a name recognised by Eduard; the nickname refers to the predominant colour of the new boxes that harkened the introduction of Eduard’s revamping the make-up of its kits. This reworking involved doing away with the option of buying the ‘plain’, injection-only kits, or paying a bit extra and getting the ‘ProfiPACK’ kits, which included such things as photo-etched (PE) frets, extra markings options, and, occasionally, resin parts. Now all Eduard aircraft kits contain PE parts, and colour ones at that. The new kits, as Eduard promised, would include entirely new fuselage halves if appropriate, rather than optional noses – and the accompanying extra seams and fit problems that go with them – for different versions of the same aircraft. This was quite welcome, and both of the first two Fokker kits feature four fuselage halves each.
It was assumed that when the ProfiPACK kits were done away with the same month the first ‘Orange’ kit came out, that all subsequent kits would be of the new variety. That has not entirely happened yet. All the new kits do feature PE frets, often two of them and always at least partly in colour. The new kits also include the glossy painting guides and extra schemes and decals for them, as introduced in the Limited Edition series in late 2004. But, for many modellers, the star of these redesigned kits are their dazzling instruction booklets. They dispense with line drawings entirely, and are made up of computer-generated, 3D colour illustrations for each step.The third and final in the D. VII series is expected within a few months, but no date has been announced.
