I`ve just received the brand new and still hot, pre-production test shot parts of a true beast - Handley Page 0/400 in 1/48 scale. It will be released in near future by Copper State Models produced by CSM partnership company Melius Manu. The kit is a full multimedia kit, with 1kg (sic.) of resin parts, PE fret, instructions and decals.
It will be available for pre-order at Telford 2018. 
Judging on the parts I`ve got it is going to build into a truly stunning miniature. What is evident already, the manufacturer took care to eliminate the shortcomings of the resin - by reinforcing the whole structure of wings and struts with wire, which is crucial for a biplane model with a wingspan exceeding over 60 centimetres. 
Without further ado, it`s time to get the beast started. I`ll post the progress pics soon.

Good Grief! I once suggested a 0/400 in 1/48 scale as something I'd like to see but that was from Wingnut Wings. The kit must be unbelievably heavy with it being made out of resin. The expected retail will no doubt be eye watering but it will build into a stunning model with exceptional detail. Any idea of the projected retail price of the kit Filip?

What with Rodens offering of the Staaken and Gotha G series bombers it would make for a stunning Display to put all three beside one another errrrr assuming one could find the space!

Looking forward to your build Filip I'm guessing it will be a stunner like you usual builds. Let the resin dust fly!
