The two United 757 sheets come in two versions. A “-A” version where the tail decal is designed to fit the Authentic Airliners 757 resin kit, or the Minicraft kit with a BraZ fin. The “-M” version is for the unmodified, out-of-the-box Minicraft kit.
I was recently sent an email with an image of a page from Zvezda’s 2021 catalog. It shows 5 new airliner kits…. one I know will be in high demand.
I suspect the An.225 will be licensed releases of the recent Revell Germany kit…. but then perhaps not. After all, Zvezda did produce their own 747-8I mould.
The Airbus narrowbodies while duplicating recent Revell releases, are most likely new moulds.
The A.350 is undoubtedly a new fuselage and landing gear moulds paired with their existing wing, tail, engine moulds from their previously released A.350-1000. Will be interesting to see if they modify the wings, as they are the same span, but 40cm less chord, giving an area 22 square meters smaller.
As more details become available, I will post news here, and will add the kits to my estore as release dates get a little closer. Now, how many 757’s am I going to be building??
We have new decal releases this week from 26 Decals and from DRAW decals.
26 Decals has now released their Fred Olsen Douglas DC-6A decal in 1/72 scale, joining their previously released 1/144 scale sheet. This was followed by a Hawker Siddely 748 decal for the Mark 1 kit, and a decal for Pacific Southwest Airlines and their Bae 146-200 fleet.
