These are the box arts that have so far appeared for 2018, some of them are right tasty (in no particular order of preference).

























That's it for now!

The 1/48 Spitfire 22/24 box art is now on view, together with the paint/decal guides. The box art is right tasty IMO.

Not really previews as I think these kits may already be on the shop shelves (maybe in your stash?). The Lancaster artwork is truly stunning, if there are prints available I'd be up for one and get it framed.









My initial thought was that the 'Sugar' scheme was a bit 'meh', but visitors to the RAF Museum can view the aircraft itself, so I suppose it's probably a no-brainer. I'd bet the Museum shop have ordered the kit in quantity - if they haven't, they ought to.

Another dynamic and very high quality image, this time Lt Josef Eberle dicing with Hurricanes from 501 Squadron. I don't know if it's historical, but it's a very impressive piece of artwork. Eberle was involved in a combat on the 12th August 1940 in which he was injured, but managed to cross the channel and belly land in France. He was killed in combat on the 9th October 1940.
