1/144 Big Bird Vol.3 - Cafe Reo
---------------------------------
http://www.cafereo.co.jp/bigbird3.htm
Available March 2008
.
There currenly appears to be 3 main aircraft available, with 2 colour schemes and a "secret" scheme making 9 in total.... not sure if there will be a surprise aircraft or a side release to this as at the show last year when these where shown as prototypes where was a single engined aircraft! - or, waybe that points the way to another future Cafe Reo release? (lets hope so!)
.
KI-21 "Sally" interestingly one of these versions has two types of tail markings, probably via a change of decals, but already effectively means there is is another varient for the enthusiast!
