Here's a First Look at ICM's extremely neat little 1/72 scale Spanish Civil War version of the Heinkel Blitz.

that looks very nice indeed and a subject i'm interested in. Is ICM limited-run? i.e likely to go out of production. So much for build more than buy this year

Hi JP

It's a brave person who makes hard and fast predictions in the current financial climate, but I think ICM give most of their kits long production runs, so you should be safe to wait a while.

All the best

That is a fantastic build, Rogerio!

especially as "Notes: - This kit is a crap!"

considering how much work you put in your model, you would probably not have been satisfied with the ICM kit either, so: don't worry, be happy!!!

all the best

Steffen

P.S. I am a big 48 scale fan and I have the fuselage parts for an loooooong ago announced HiPM release ... should I work Spitfire wings on those? Mal?

Hi Rogerio

Fantastic work! You should submit this build as a Feature - it'd look great on the front page!

All the best

Thanks folks. It's always good to hear all this encouragement, but I will look for more Tamigawa kits for a while (I still have some tuff things on my workbench...).

Steffen, better to start with a WWI fighter wing and buy a good stock of sandpaper...

Rowan, I submitted an article to a magazine, still waiting the answer. If they deny, sure I'll divert the article to AeroScale...

And by the way, does anybody saved the photos of the masters pointed out by Denis? The link now shows only thumbnails...

Thanks again.
