What's New??

We have so many new items that I just got added to the website for PreOrder that will be coming out this year and the list is very exciting for sure! I will list a few of my favorites here, but... make sure to check out the PreOrder section on the website because there are certainly more awesome items coming that I don't have enough room to list in this email!

Aircraft Preorders

1/48 Eduard B-17F Plastic Model Kit - The Bloody Hundredth 1943

I would be remiss if I left this kit out... and in my opinion, didn't lead with it! This kit, coming from Eduard, is the 1/48 HK Models plastic kit (with an added sprue produced by Eduard!), but it has been super detailed and has ALL the goodies included with it from Eduard. This is going to be the "bloody" homerun of the month when it is released in late summer. It will be a very limited production run so let that FOMO* set in deep and DO NOT MISS OUT!

* FOMO - "Fear of Missing Out" - Hey, Now you know! :-)
