Heli-Kit News #40, 06-Jun-99

1. Amodel will release a 1:72 injection-moulded Kamov Ka-15 in July. I'm not sure where this leaves the planned Master-Club resin one, but all their energies are currently going into finishing their Tu-95.

2. Amodel has also launched a new brand called 'Skyhigh'. The first release will be a 1:72 injection-moulded Kamov Ka-25C.

3. M-Hobby 99/3 is published next week and features a major article on the Kamov Ka-18 with plans by Polygon in-house artist Alexei Mikheev.

All the above will be stocked by Linden Hill.

4. Back in February (HKN #24) I published the following quote from the Matlan report on the Nuremburg Toy Fair:

"M.R.C. Bad news from this friendly team: the 1/35 CHINOOK is now cancelled. Good news: M.R.C. will announce during 4th quarter of 1999 this 1/35 new release that will be available during 2000."

I interpreted this as meaning that the Chinook would be released in 2000, but it seems this is not the case. In fact the Chinook is cancelled and MRC are planning to "release another (TOP SECRET) helicopter during 2000".

Thanks to Math from Matlan & Guy Holroyd from Linden Hill
