DRAW Decal released one new airliner set this week:

TwoSix released two decals in 1/200 scale that have been previously released in 1/144 scale.

The Ebbro 1/48 Scale HA420 Honda Jet has arrived, and as previously described, it includes chrome details, clear cabin and cockpit windows, and a full interior that can be exposed by removing a separate and either red or blue upper forward fuselage.  Ebbro has now announced that a second release will be coming soon, this time with yellow, hunter green or silver upper fuselage part, as kit EBR48-002.  It also includes a clear upper forward fuselage option, which provides a full and unobstructed view of the interior.
