With our recent restock shipment from BraZ, I received the following new items:
- BZ4096 GE90-94B Engines (2), B.777-200, -200ER, -300
- BZ4097 RR Trent 800 Engines (2), B.777-200, -200ER, -300
- BZ4098 PW4090 Engines (2), B.777-200, -200ER, -300

RR Trent 800
The 777-200LR, -300ER and -200F are all exclusively powered by the GE90-110B1 or -115B engines, as supplied in the Zvezda / Revell 777-300 kit. The engines listed above are intended to allow the modeller to build a -300 from the Zvezda kit, or a shortened -200 or -200ER.
All are available for immediate shipment.
In addition to restocking the 737 kits, I have also restocked all available Daco Skyline decals. New releases are:
Back in stock are:
My latest shipment from TwoSix includes a first batch of their 1/144 scale Shorts 330 kit. It comes with a laser printed decal for Air Europe Express. It is item TSM44-011AE in the estore.
With this shipment I received a final batch of the 1/144 scale Tristar kits – well, not the kits themselves (TS is sold out), but some extra decals and box labels so that I can “re-label” some of the kits I have left. I have 8 kits left as of Feb 13th. Search “TSM44-010” to find them. Note, the “no decal” model is no longer available to order.
Finally, TwoSix has reprinted a few of their “sold out” silk decals:
The BEA and BOAC sheets are back in stock, Korean will be here in our next shipment, eta early March.
Daco Skyline produced a fresh run of their outstanding 1/144 scale Boeing 737-300, 737-400 and 737-500 kits, and re-released them with high quality decals (the earlier releases had no decal included). These kits are highly detailed, and are the most accurate kits of these aircraft available.
- SKY144-03B Boeing 737-300, Western Pacific ‘The Simpsons’
- SKY144-04B Boeing 737-400, Brussels Airlines
- SKY144-05B Boeing 737-500, Air Baltic ‘Painted Ladies’
Each kit includes a highly detailed decal, however Daco Skyline’s etch brass detail frets are not included. Also, the decal provided in the Air Baltic 737-500 is not quite as illustrated on the kit box.
I have started to re-stock the Fly Models 1/144 scale DC-9 kits. In stock are the following
- FLY14412 Douglas DC-9-40, DHL (with extra -30 fuselage)
- FLY14418 Douglas DC-9-10, Douglas Aircraft Corp. (with extra -30 fuselage)
- FLY14424 Douglas DC-9-40, Ozark (with extra -30 fuselage)
- FLY14427 Douglas DC-9-10, Baltic International Airlines (with extra -30 fuselage)
In addition, we have the following older releases:
- FLY14401 Douglas DC-9-30, Firebird II
- FLY14405 Douglas VC-9C (DC-9-30), United States of America
- FLY14406 Douglas DC-9-30, DHL
We expect to add more of these kits in the coming months. Stay tuned!
With the new releases from Roden, FRsin, and to lesser extent Zvezda, I am being more selective which Welsh releases I stock. Too many Viscounts, Britannias, Comets, Il.18s, Il.62s, Tu154, Constellations, Boeing 720s, DC-8’s and Caravelles went unsold when injection moulded (easier to build, cheaper) were announced and hit the market. Welsh does make excellent kits, and for years Densil and his team have filled the many gaps.
So now I have to stock less of his range, and fewer copies of each kit. With that said, I added the following new releases with the arrival of my latest order:
- WSL-350R Convair 580, Aspen (brown cs) – all resin and white metal kit
- WCV-44 Boeing 737-100 vacuform fuselage, Air Cal decal (requires an Airfix 737-200 kit to complete the model)
Both items are in stock and ready to ship!
We have just received a restock shipment from BOA Decals, that includes the following new releases:
In addition, BOA has reprinted BOA144-039 Wizz Air Airbus A.320, and is now in stock again.
Shortly before the IPMS (UK) Nationals, FRsin announced the imminent release of their latest limited run injection moulded plastic kit, the Airbus A.300-600. It has now been released with six separate livery options as follows:
The kit comprises a new fuselage, fin and stabs by FRsin, combined with parts purchased from Revell Germany from their A.300-600ST ‘Super Transporter’ kit – wings, engines and landing gear. This is a complete kit, not a conversion kit.
Engines provided (as said, the Revell Germany parts) are a pair of GE CF6-80C2 turbofans. The A.300-600 (and similar 600R) were delivered either with these GE engines, or a pair of PW4158’s. BraZ offers a pair of the PW’s as BZ4001.
While writing the post announcing the TwoSix / Eastern Express Tristar kits yesterday, I remembered that I had not posted anything about the recently released Vintage Flyer Tristar decals. So, let’s fix that.
Vintage Flyer continues their trend of releasing decals for early widebodies with five sheets for the L.1011 Tristar, in 1/144 and 1/200 scales. In 1/144, the ‘A’ version of the decals are for the Authentic airliners resin kit. They are:
We have placed an order for a selection of the recently released TwoSix 1/144 scale L.1011 Tristar 1 kits, expected here late this week.
The kit is the Eastern Express kit, packaged with a TwoSix screen printed or laser printed decal. TwoSix initially offered 10 kit and decal combinations, and at our request, have made 3 more available.
The Eastern Express Tristar is widely believed to have been patterned from the famous 1/144 scale Otaki Tristar kit, which is accepted as the most accurate injection moulded styrene plastic 1/144 scale L.1011 kit ever made. It is not, however, a direct copy, and the parts breakdown (for example the rear fuselage is provided as separate parts) is different. It lacks locating pins for mating the fuselage halves, wing halves and stab halves, making assembly a little more challenging.
