The Aero L-159 ALCA[nb 1] is a light subsonic attack jet and advanced trainer developed in the single-seat L-159A and two-seat L-159B versions respectively, produced in the Czech Republic by Aero Vodochody. In 2003, the Czech Air Force elected to reduce its own fleet of 72 L-159A aircraft to 24 and has re-sold most of the redundant aircraft to both military and civilian operators, namely the Iraqi Air Force and Draken International.

The L-159 has seen active combat use by the Iraqi Air Force against ISIS. In Draken’s service, the L-159 (colloquially known as "Honey Badger") has been employed as an aggressor aircraft.[4] Since 2007, six L-159A aircraft have been rebuilt into T1 trainer derivatives. In 2017, Aero Vodochody unveiled a newly built L-159T1 for the Iraqi Air Force while the Czech Air Force is set to acquire L-159T2 (L-159T1+) two-seaters

1/144 Razorback Interplanetary Racer from "The Expanse" - Fantastic Plastic





1/144 Razorback Interplanetary Racer from "The Expanse" - Fantastic Plastic

From "The Expanse"  TV Series  (and the books by Jamees  S.A Correy)

Price: TBD
STATUS: COMING SOON!

http://fantastic-plastic.com/razorback_racer_expanse.html

About the Design    
Introduced in Season 3 of "The Expanse," the Razorback is an extensively modified sixth generation Procerpina Sunflare. The ship is propelled by a super-charged Destrier-4 High-Velocity Epstein Drive constantly maintained by multi-injection hyper-coolant units. Its wing-tip control thrusters are situated as far as possible from the ship's center of mass, allowing it to make rapid turns and course corrections.

Crewed by a pilot and co-pilot navigator seated in gimbled seats that can be turned in response to rapid and severe g-forces, the Razorback is arguably the fastest and most manoeuvrable spacecraft in the solar system.

The Razorback won the majority of its titles while piloted by Juliet Mao, the late daughter of billionaire industrialist Jules Pierre Mao.

From "The Expanse"  TV Series  (and the books by Jamees  S.A Correy)
Price: TBD
STATUS: COMING SOON!

http://fantastic-plastic.com/morrigan_class.html

About the Design    
The Morrigan class is a small, light-weight ship designed by the MCRN Navy to serve as a torpedo or light destroyer/escort. Small enough to be carried in number aboard Donneger-class battleships, Morrigan-class ships are often equipped with stealth technology

Thirty-one meters long, these ships are armed with two Nariman Dynamics 40mm Point Defense Cannons (PDCs) and two torpedo bays. They lack a ventral PDC, which gives them a vulnerable "blind spot."

Morrigans normally carry a crew of eight, but can function with a skeleton crew of just three if required.

1/144 Wing Kit Collection Versus Series 10 - Tenzan VS Avenger (F-Toys)




1/144 Wing Kit Collection Versus Series 10 - Tenzan VS Avenger (F-Toys)


Grumman TBF/TBM Avenger
The Grumman TBF Avenger (designated TBM for aircraft manufactured by General Motors) is an American torpedo bomber developed initially for the United States Navy and Marine Corps, and eventually used by several air and naval aviation services around the world.

The Avenger entered U.S. service in 1942, and first saw action during the Battle of Midway. Despite the loss of five of the six Avengers on its combat debut, it survived in service to become one of the outstanding torpedo bombers of World War II. Greatly modified after the war, it remained in use until the 1960s

Primary Users by US Navy,Royal Navy,Royal New Zealand Air force, Royal Canadian Navy.
Also used by Brazil,Cuba,France,Japan,Netherlands and Uruguay

A famous incident involving the TBM / TBF Avenger aircraft was the disappearance of Flight 19, a training flight of five Avengers that originated from Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale and was lost in December 1945 over the Bermuda Triangle.

 Nakajima B6N Tenzan 中島 B6N 天山—"Heavenly Mountain"
The Nakajima B6N Tenzan (Japanese: 中島 B6N 天山—"Heavenly Mountain", Allied reporting name: "Jill") was the Imperial Japanese Navy's standard carrier-borne torpedo bomber during the final years of World War II and the successor to the B5N "Kate". Due to its protracted development, a shortage of experienced pilots and the United States Navy's achievement of air superiority by the time of its introduction, the B6N was never able to fully demonstrate its combat potential.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nakajima_B6N

Expect a number of bonus colour schemes (a post war JSDF Avenger would be amusing)

Due: Decemeber 2018

The BAC Jet Provost is a British jet trainer aircraft that was in use with the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1955 to 1993. It was originally developed by Hunting Percival from the earlier piston engine-powered Percival Provost basic trainer, and later produced by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC). In addition to the multiple RAF orders, the Jet Provost, sometimes with light armament, was exported to many air forces worldwide.

The design was also further developed into a more heavily armed ground attack variant under the name BAC Strikemaster.

1/144 Antonov An-22 "Cock" - A&A Models

Not a "rebox" of the Eastern Express, but "enhanced kit" - Improved the molds, added new spruces (details) and new decals

The Antonov An-22 "Antei" (Ukrainian: Ан-22 Антей,[1] An-22 Antej; English Antheus) (NATO reporting name "Cock") is a heavy military transport aircraft designed by the Antonov Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. Powered by four turboprop engines each driving a pair of contra-rotating propellers, the design was the first Soviet wide-body aircraft and remains the world's largest turboprop-powered aircraft to date. The An-22 first appeared publicly outside the Soviet Union at the 1965 Paris Air Show. Since then, the model has seen extensive use in major military and humanitarian airlifts for the Soviet Union.
