Newsletter 035: I only wanted a scale model...

I only wanted a scale model...

I only wanted a scale model...
Our Boss only wanted a scale model for his birthday... and we gave him a Canadair ride!!! He couldn't believe it, just look at his face: it's wonderful to have dreams... and even more when they come true!! :)

The wonderful fellas at Eduard have made a few new photoetched parts sets from the BIG ED series come true for our dreamed scale model kits. The lucky ones are, in 1/48 scale, the Bf109 E-4/7 by Tamiya, the F18E by Revell and all F4F-4; and in 1/72 scale, luck goes to the B-25J and H by Hasegawa, and the gorgeous B-17 by Revell.

Series Españolas, manufacturer devoted to publishing decorations and markings of the Spanish Air Forces, premieres this week their Cartograf printed decals for F-5 and F-104 in all scales. And on the other side, Montex Masks releases several new decorations in 1/32 scale for Bf109, P-40 and Spitfire Mk Vb y Mk VIII, as well as a couple in 1/48 scale for Fw190 and P-51.

At Aeronautiko, we want to help you making your modeling dreams come true... What are yours? :D
