New range of SCW aircraft

15GEA101
I'm happy to show you the first results of a new range we had been silently working out for a long since. What you see in the attached captions is the very first model of our new range devoted to Spanish Civil War fighting aircraft, that will be developed at 1/100th and 1/144th scales alongside.

Yes, legendary Polikarpov I-15 "Chato" is ready for lording Spain's skies again!

Following our usual philosophy of easing wargamers' life, models are to comprise very few parts and will be accurately cast in a high quality resin, so as to preserve the most detail so few pieces allow. Some smaller, expectably brittle parts will be cast in white metal instead --for higher endurance. In the case of our Polikarpov I-15 for instance, only the three major parts are actually resin made (hull, upper wings and nose) while propellor, wing struts and landing gear are metallic.

This handsome biplane fighter will be released at 1/100th scale very shortly --within the next weeks. Its smaller 1/144th version will follow the path shortly afterwards; as a matter of fact, it has also been prototyped and is ready for production! ...just as their main rival too: Fiat CR.32 "Chirri" --equally at both scales.

This is good news... I hope you produce a Nieuport NiD-52 and a Breguet XIX in 1/100 at some point.

Hummm... early-early war aircraft? Well, why not? ;)

Great stuff there

That's good to hear. I've wanted to do the GCE air war for a while, but I wanted to go from the beginning.

I forgot to say what a great looking model that Chaika is before. :)

Very interesting addition to your range. I guess it's likely to be a blockbuster

Salvador said...

Very neat and pretty Lluís. Are we in time to ask they add you to the ongoing beatifications in Tarragona?

Anxiously hoping for the HS-Hawker Fury...

Soldadets said...

Mmmmmm... a Hawker Fury. I'd love it indeed.

Please don't ask me to be included in the Spanish Church 20th Century Martyrs of the Masonic-Jewish-Red-Separatist Plot. I do share not least than three features with plotters, so the pack might become... er... somewhat distorted ;)

Interesting stuff, it looks promising.

How soon now Lluis?

As for today, Sunday 17/11/2013, I can say it's just a matter of days.

1/100th scale Chaikas/Chatos have already been cast, and their boxes are being printed right now. It just depends of decals printing.

1/100th scale Freccie/Chirris prototypes are being brought to mould.

1/144th scale versions of both have already been prototyped, and are just waiting for their turn.
