Sword from the Czech Republic has announced five new kits in 1/72 that should be in the shops soon. Releases include a tropical Spitfire Vc, P-47N, Ki 44 and two Curtis Seamews, one of which is fitted with floats.
Quiet a line-up of new releases from Sword, options for each kit is listed below. Also included with the plastic parts are resin and PE detailing parts.
My nose tells me that the PE parts will be made by Eduard, although it is not officially mentioned anywhere yet. Decals are printed by Techmod from Poland, my latest experiences with their decals has been positive. Box top illustrations are quiet superb.SW 72045 Spitfire Mk.Vc Trop RAAF
