Our principal distributor has informed us that they have signed an agreement with newcomer Air Forces 1 Model Company to become the sole distributor of their line of multi-scale aircraft for the North American market. While the manufacturer is still working on their own web site, early indications are that the first release will be a 1:72 scale replica of the V-22 Osprey Tiltrotor aircraft. The AF1 version will feature the ability to rotate the wings 90 degrees so that it can be stowed aboard a US Aircraft carrier.
According to reports, AF1 will be relaunching several of the older Armour Collection 1:48 scale aircraft as part of their line, although its not clear if any retooling will be done to bring them up to spec. Moreover, the new line will include aircraft in differing scales and could be as broad and deep as the original Armour Collection range. We hope to have more details concerning this important announcement in the days and weeks ahead.
