Looking forward to this one, and am optimistic at the price of it. Looking at hobbyeasy, a full interior tank by MiniArt is $46, with a whole lot more tooling and plastic than this little hummingbird.

Good times,

This s great! Luft 46... An R-5 (S-51) is what is also needed; to counter it.

This is a "labor of love" by another modeler that MiniArt has taken over to his delight and ours.

Hi Kevin

Thanks for the update on this kit. I'd prefer it to be in an "aircraft" scale (i.e. 1:32) - but, nevertheless, I think I can see myself getting one of these!

All the best

Some details images of the new Fl 282 V-6 KOLIBRI coming in 1/35 scale have been released, and they look amazing.
