1/144 F-Toys Wing Kit Collection Vol.7The series subtitles on various Japanese websites is confusing labeled as "WWII German and US Fighters" or "European Theatre" - although the line-up and marking don't quite tie-up.
Still, it is should be much a welcomed series; with an all new 1/144 P-39 Air Cobra, a new 1/144 mold of the P-40 last seen in the early Bandai wing Club release, and an 'old favorite' The Bf-109 in E-4 guise.
- P-39 Air Cobra
- P-40E Warhawk
The P-40E Flying Tigers will please many buyers as these guys have a legendary status in the flying world.
The P-39 should be a pleaser, as it has not really seen the light of day since the early days of that Revel kit! I think its a cool shape, and most of all that RAF cam scheme looks very nice indeed!
The bf-109s are for the most part 'ticks in boxes' there is a desert and an Early War/Battle of Britain Scheme, and a Romanian scheme - luckily the aircraft numbering does not clash with the forth coming Tomytec Gimix Bf-109 series numbering for Romanian aircraft in that series!
I would expect the usual Item and Series colour specials!
