BOA Agency has recently released, and we have just ordered, the following new 1/144 scale decals:
Vintage Flyer has announced their first batch of DC-9-10 decals, no doubt encouraged by the release of the Atlantis Models 1/72 scale DC-9-10 kit. The following are available in 1/72, 1/120 (for the Revell kit) and 1/144 scale (for the FLY DC-9-10 or converted Airfix DC-9-30 kits).

We have placed our initial order with Vintage Flyer, and expect them in stock in early June.
I have just placed a new order for a batch of FLY’s excellent DC-9 kits. Expected in stock May 11th:
We are accepting pre-orders now.
A review of inventory, necessary evil at tax time, confirmed I am over-stocked on a few kits. Some are no longer generally available, but either way, I have more than I really need to support sales. So, you win!
To find them, you can search in a few ways.
First, and probably easiest, type “-csp” (without the quotes) in the search box top left on the home page. You should find everything. “CSP” means Clearance Sale Price”.
Alternatively, look down the left side of the home pags. Number 6 is the “Clearance Table”, and under that relevant categories.
No limits, no conditions! Add what ever you want to a shopping cart, and proceed through checkout. A few customers have already picked a few items, most are limited quantities at the “CSP” price.
The long delayed Boeing 787-9 ‘Dreamliner’ kit by Zvezda has finally arrived! I have contacted those of you who pre-ordered it, and have packed and mailed the kits. I have three kits left for general sale.
Zvezda has announced two new kits:
- ZVE7019 Boeing 737-800
- ZVE7011 Ilyushin 76 (previously announced in 2015)
Zvezda has shown photographs of the fuselage sprues for the 737. Looks good so far!
As more is learned, I will update this post.
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
- BZ4099 Boeing 777-200ER, -300 Raked Wingtips
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

We expect to add more of these kits in the coming months. Stay tuned!
