1/48 SNCAC NC.701 Martinet

The German Siebel Si 204 was developed just before the Second World War as a modern transport aircraft. The outbreak of the war meant change in the type’s purpose and it began to fly for the Luftwaffe as a trainer. This variety of the Siebel was also produced in oddupied countries, in Czechoslovakia and in France. And in both these countries, the production went on also after the war had ended. The French produced several various versions and even with three-bladed propellers. These airframes were exported to the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden, too.
Our model of the NC-701 Martinet transport version offers decals for a French Aéronavale option, one as used by Polish LOT transport company and finaly a Swedish civilian machine.

1/48 AH-1Q/S Cobra ‘IDF Against Terrorists’

The Israeli Air Force acquired and subsequently tested the AH-1G Cobra attack helicopters. Due to the need of helicopters capable of destroying armoured vehicles or the enemy’s fortified footholds, Israel in cooperation with its US counterpart converted these helicopters to the AH-1S version. This AH-1S airframes were equipped with the TOW missiles. Israeli helicopters still retained several features typical for the older AH-1G version helicopters. The kit set offers highly detailed styrene parts coming on as many as nine sprues and one with clear canopy parts. The decals sheet offers markings for three brown machines (one of which in two different forms) with two of them sporting Yellow ID “V” letters.
