New 1/144 Revell WW2 Aircaft :)

  •  Stuka
  • Me 109E
  • Fw 190D
  • Me262
  • Spitfire
  • Hurricane
  • Tempest
  • Typhoon

Something for the air war sir?
Cheap too retailing as £1.99 which is a very sensible price for a fighter
Good as the Zvezda kit is creeping up in price 

If I remember correctly these are very old molds (I had a Revell Me109E, Stuka and a Dornier D0.17 unless the latter was a mad dream of mine)

Hi! you remember correctly, these are old sets, but it's nice to see them back again, nice little kits they are, not that detailed or accurate but easy to work with and great for wargaming and display. I have quite a few from a former release, so now I hope to complete the collection. Pity they didn't include any soviet or italian aircraft... At least Zvezda is providing some soviet 1/144 stuff anyway.

It is nice to see these available again. I think the Do17 was a dream. A nice dream though...

Hello Giano,

Do you have an idea of the previous range they did?

I know they dis a Curtiss P40 too
How about any others?

Me 1110

Is Tim right that I was dreaming about a Dornier D17?

Any info appeciated ;)

Tim I should really dream of electric sheep ;)

Hi Geordie, sorry if I answer this late but I missed your post till today.

Apart from those 8 you mentioned (which are being re-released), here are the kits I'm sure were included in the range(I have them):
- SBD Dauntless
- P-40 Kittyhawk
- P-39
- P-47
- Wildcat
- Ki-61 Hien "Tony"
- Ki-44 Shoki "Tojo"
- Ki-43 Hayabusa "Oscar"
- Ki-84 Hayate "Frank"

Kits I'm not sure but I have some remembrance about them so are very likely
- A6M Zero
- Aichi "Val"
- P-51
- Hellcat

Kits I'm almost sure weren't part of the range:
- any multi-engined aircraft apart from the Me 262
- any italian, soviet or french aircraft
- any post or pre ww2 aircraft

I don't remember the Corsair, but I think it's quite a likely inclusion to this range

Brilliant more than I thought
Fingers crossed that they all come out into the shops

Giano said...

I too hope they'll be released soon, I really liked this range. Pity they decided to cover only four of the main powers...
PS I found mine kits at a flea market, and I didn't have enough money to buy them all, so I may have missed something in the list... That means we can't rule out some unexpected re-release ;)
