I think the Aeroclub Mossie has been around a while. I recall seeing it on evilBay about a year ago.

i think you might be right, althoug its a small brand oft over looked!

plus, i hear a rumour of a planed 1/144 DH rapide / dragon ....
. (no harm in enouraging sales, of current lines!)

Yeah, these kits have been around for years. They were sold out even from the Aeroclub site for a few y ears, so it's good to see them back in production again. They're fairly basic and don't have a lot of detail. But they're the only ones in 144 injection kit format (unassembled / unpainted / non-gashapon). Somewhat pricy for what you get, but they're short run and can fetch a few dollars from the crazies on ebay. I'm including myself in that crowd, but only when it comes to Japanese resin!

I believe Platz will be releasing A-4M sometime this year, but they're notorious for delaying their releases by as long as 6-8 months. Still waiting for them!

By the way, Attack will be releasing Mig-19s soon, which I'm sure will sell very well. Just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone was interested!
