Our distributor reports that several long out-of-stock bombers and other big wing aircraft from Amercom should returning to store shelves by year’s end, hopefully in time for the holidays.
Most are 1:144 scale, with a smattering of the larger aircraft available in 1:200 scale. All are budget priced at just $19.99 and lend themselves towards making great stocking stuffers for the holiday season.
Earlier today, we were informed that a small cache of 1:144 scale bombers from Altaya were en route and expected later this month. If you may remember, we first learned of their existence several years ago, so the fact that they have finally made it to our shores is especially good news. Several interesting subjects are among the batch, including this Italian Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 II Sparviero medium bomber (#SM51). Priced at just $25 apiece, these replicas go a long way towards filling in some of the holes in everyone’s scale aviation museum.
