1/144 HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) Israeli Air Force - Noys Miniatures



1/144 HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) Israeli Air Force - Noys Miniatures
Noy's Miniatures is about to release a unique, limited edition mixed-media kit in 1/144 scale, representing the typical HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) in use for many years now by the Israeli Air Force.

The kit will include 12 resin parts, 4 PE parts, a full color tarmac print and full color assembly instructions. It will enable modellers to build various sized HAS dioramas, according to their preferences, and is designed to show a partial area of the structure's inside, as well as the external vicinity.

In order to build the version depicted on the kit's box, additional items (i.e. styrene sheets, round styrene rods, styrene strips) are needed. These items' details are specified on the kit's box and in the instructions. Yellow desert sand representation for covering the HAS roof is needed as well (not included).

During its long period of service, this HAS housed many IDF/AF aircraft types, so nice dioramas can be built with KFIRs, A-4s, F-16s and other types. It is also used for housing foreign machines deployed to Israel for international air exercises, a fact that opens further display options for modellers. We recommend adding some ground equipment (the one in the photos is Hasegawa's cart) and any other enhancements the modellers see fit. The Sky's the Limit!

Scale: 1/144
Price: TBD

12mm Kits from Victrix Games




12mm Kits from Victrix Games 

Press Release from Victix Games:

We’re excited to announce the we have set up a new company called VICTRIX GAMES.

This is a subsidiary company of Victrix Limited and will be focused on bringing you fully functional gaming systems as well as high quality vehicles and figures to use in these games.

Our first launch is a 12mm World War II Gaming System. We have chosen 12mm as it allows gaming on a 1:1 scale for all vehicles and figures. By ensuring that 1 vehicle/figure represents 1 vehicle/figure in real, life, it gives the game a more authentic feel, with the attritional nature of war being ever present in the gamers' mind. 12mm allows for realistic scale actions even on a small 6ft by 4ft gaming table without the battle looking overcrowded and unrealistic. You decide how big or small you want the game to be. Our figures will also be compatible with most 10mm ranges.

This first theatre will be based on Normandy 1944. It includes separate British, German and American forces. The game is predominantly a tank and infantry-based system but will also include rules for ground attack aircraft. Other theatres currently being developed include North Africa and the Eastern Front.

The system is based around a set of core rules which is scheduled to be released in late 2020. However, for those already keen to get their hands on VICTRIX GAMES’ products, you’ll be glad to hear that in the meantime we will be releasing several vehicle and figure sets based on the Normandy 1944 theatre. You can expect these to be available in early 2020.
