New releases tend to get a little thin during the summer months (in
either hemisphere), but the plastic 'dry season' is over! As you read
this, we're starting to see the flow of goodies coming from around the
world. Here's a look at the latest attacks on your wallet, plus some announcements
of cool things to come:
Cobra Company: 1/144 Boeing 377
Stratocruiser Correction Set [Minicraft] (Soon); 1/144 Boeing KC-97L
Conversion [Minicraft KC-97G] (Soon); 1/144 Boeing C-97/KC-97 Engines
& Props [Minicraft] (Soon); 1/72 Boeing 377 Stratocruiser Correction
Set [Academy] (Soon); 1/72 Boeing KC-97 Detailing Set [Academy] (Soon).
Note: Cobra Company has announced that they will no longer be selling
through distributors and hobby shops. They are now established to sell
directly from their website at www.cobracompany.com
as well as via telephone and fax orders. Phone numbers and ordering
instructions are also available on their website.
I know I am probably missing some key items, but this gives you an idea
that your wallet is once again in harm's way. We'll have more in-depth
news on the releases planned for next year in our coverage of the Chicago
Hobby Show in October.
