Etched fret, separate painting and markings booklet, and adhesive masks. The first Eduard release of the kit last summer sold out in a record two weeks. The new offering is priced at £21.60.The company has also created a new kit of the Me 262B in 1:144 scale, which will be released as a two-kits-for-the-price-of-one offering in mid-February and will include photo-etched parts and decals for several colour schemes.

AML’s latest 1:72 scale release, kit No. 72035, is devoted to an Israeli-operated version of the Czechoslovak-built, post-World War II vintage Messerschmitt fighter. The box art makes use of recent findings made by IAF vintage fighter historian Alex Yaffe who determined that the IAF’s first air to air kills, scored by No. 101 Sqn commander Modi Alon, were made in Avia S-199 D-107. The box art depicts the downing of one of two Royal Egyptian Air Force C-47s flying as make shift bombers that were attacked over Tel Aviv and Rishon Le Tzion on the afternoon of 3 June 1948. The kit consists of 47 plastic parts with recessed detail, 21 cast resin parts and two vacformed clear canopies. Plastic parts 3, 19, 20, 21 and 26 are not applicable to the Avia and neither are the fuel tank parts 15 and 30, although these can be used if one wishes to depict a Vilvetta I or II Spitfire. The instruction sheet line drawings are very well done, showing clearly the positioning of the centerline bomb rack, optional lower nose cowling intake and upper fuselage wire antenna. The painting and markings sheet is printed in colour and depicts four options including D-107, D-108, D-120 and D-123, with D-107 and D-123 showing both early – and late-type markings. Please note that the fuselage colour, RAL6013, available in the Revell range of paints, is not quoted in the instructions; the F. S.34258 quoted is too vivid to represent the actual colour applied to the Avia. Do not be mislead by the instruction sheet’s suggestion of a dark green for the propeller blades – they should be painted the same RAL6013 green as the fuselage. The decal sheet is beautifully printed with no registration errors and offers markings for six different options. Alternate colour options are provided for the fuselage numbers and stepped arrow, although my research led me to the conclusion that the aircraft numbers were the same blue colour as that on the Star of David roundels. The stepped arrow was painted black, as stated by former Avia pilot Ezer Weissman.
