More From KP
« on: February 05, 2023, 12:59:48 AM »
 I was reading on the KP site and came across the following statement:

    In February/March we will release the following models in 1/72 scale. The long awaited next versions of the MiG-19 will be MiG-19P, PM and Shenyang J-6B. We are also continuing with WWI aircraft . You can look forward to Nieuport Ni-11 and Ni -16 from metal moulds and also Ago C.IV and Hansa W.12, and other pleasant surprises. 

    Great news.  Can anyone verify this?

Thanks Rip Van Winkle.
There is no other source yet but KP usually stand by their word, except for the AVRO 504 that was announced and is not ready (yet?).
I don't know what 'metal molds' implies but if they are not replicating the Eastern Express (ex-Toko) Ni.11 and Ni.16 kits, the only other option, given their habit of using other manufacturers' old molds as a basis, is the old HR Model kits.
This is great news, as HR had a large selection of WW.I kits. Imagine 1/72 injection kits of the Fokker D.II and D.III, Nieuport 12, Halberstadt D.V and many more  :)
The AGO C.IV and H.B. W.12 are probably based on the old CMR kits.

I hope that the Nieuport 11/16 is from the HR kit. I am working on a Toko Nieuport11 now and it takes a lot of adjustment.  I am grateful for anything that is released in 1/72 scale.

Going by this Scalemates page the Avro will be an AZmodel release.

Any kits in 1/72 are welcome by me. Hoping the HB-W12 will have some markings Iíve been wanting.

Any word on the Nie.11/Nie.16?
