Some very interesting news...Schnellboot S38 1942 in 1:72 scale!

Never heard of this company but very interesting and most welcome addition
to the line up of Schnellboote, in 1:72 scale!
Looks to be very good:

Looks like they are finally for sale. Last time I checked they were pre-order. There is absolutely no indication where, or by whom they are manufactured, and nothing on the internet. Close inspection of the box top shows Chinese writing (surprise!). However, they do have a professional and experienced look to them, and include several sheets of PE, and turned brass barrels. I suspect Fore Models is an offshoot of a pre-existing plastics company, similar that Kajika, and Sphryna are offshoots of Flyhawk.
On the other hand, I could be entirely wrong! :woozy_face:

Found some on Ebay from a Chinese vendor.

Cheers,

Yeah…I saw that, too, but it’s considerably more expensive than Lucky Model. In CDN $ that would be at least $130 (and then shipping!). A tad more than I would be willing to spend! :rage:

A kit review from Modeling News,com

Cheers,

oooh. nifty. on purchase list…

This does look rather good, I am definitely up for adding one these to the stash,

Hi Simon,
Glad you like it!..I think it is an awesome kit from the pics I am seeing.
I was planning to backdate the REVELL S100 but with release I am just
going to order one as soon as they hit the North American distributors.
Cheers,
