After a busy Christmas line-up, Eduard keep the pace up with a bundle of new releases for January.

With the brand new Grumman Hellcat looking set for release early in the spring, Eduard have concentrated on returning to some old favourites in new guises. There are truly spectacular new boxings of the Brisfit and Mirage 2000, while the Fw 190A-8 must surely be the most elaborate "Weekend Edition" yet! The highlights among the new photoetched sets are a whole series designed for Trumpeter's big Grumman Wildcat, but there's plenty else too, with some old favourites like Eduard's own neat little Bf 108 getting some deserved time in the limelight again.

Eduard have a packed line-up planned for Christmas, with WW1 modellers doing especially well thanks to quarterscale Albatros D.I and D.IIs, plus a 1/72 scale Nieuport Ni-23 double pack. Jet enthusiasts aren't left out either, with the popular L.39 appearing in fresh colours. Meanwhile, Eduard will extend their range of quarterscale figures with a set of late-WW2 Luftwaffe fighter crew.

There are comprehensive aftermarket sets for Special Hobby's big Airacobra and Zvezda's La-5FN, plus much more...
  • Ed_Bf110C
Turning real-life chronology on its head, while some people are still waiting to see the Messerschmitt Bf 110E on the shelves in their local hobby shop, Eduard already have it's successor kit ready and waiting in the wings - the Bf 110C.

November looks set to be a busy month, with a new Dual Combo Airacobra on the way - plus an intriguing item # 7501 - Czech AF... no details of what that is yet.

On the etched front, there's a lot to look forward to. Trumpeter's neat little new MiG-3 is almost begging for an etched upgrade and Eduard have been quick off the mark to oblige. Meanwhile, there's a maintenance ladder for the Bf 110E, along with an etched detail set - and this for an already phenomenally detailed model!
  • Ed_Mirage2000
In answer to the overwhelming demand for their Limited Edition Mirage 2000, Eduard have announced a one-off extra run of the kit - a Limited Re-Edition - so now's your chance if you missed the kit first time around.

Also new next month will be the latest addition to the phenomenally successful Fw 190 range - a Fw 190A-8 R/2, previously only available in the Royal Edition.

October looks set to be a good month for Great War enthusiasts, with an Albatros D.V Dual Combo in 1/72 scale and a new set of French WW1 quarterscale figures.

Despite a packed line-up of new kits, etched sets and painting masks, there'll really only be one story for many of us among Eduard's releases for September... the long-awaited 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110E.
  • bf_painted-cockpit03b
Eduard have released the first pics of the painted test-shot cockpit and nose-guns for their eagerly awaited 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110E.
  • Ed_I-16-29
Despite going flat-out to get ready for the release of their new 1/48 scale Bf 110E, Eduard have still managed to come up with an impressive selection of new kits, etched sets and masks for next month.

While the colourful Polikarpov I-16 and Albatros D.V Dual Combo are bound to grab the attention, just as exciting is the release of the first of Eduard's new self-adhesive etched sets. These sound very intriguing - look out for a full report on them soon on Aeroscale.
  • ED_Fw190A6_Boxtop
Due to an oversight, the first batch of Eduard's superb new 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-6 was shipped without instructions for the painting masks and the comprehensive set of stencil decals.
Next month will be a busy one for Eduard, with the first of this summer's new kits appearing. The superb Focke-Wulf 190 series continues with the Fw 190A-6 and modern jet fans have a brand new Mirage 2000D/N, plus there's a new set of Russian figures in 1/48 scale and the usual plethora of new etched sets and masks.

  • Ed_Avia_B534_IV_Boxtop
Eduard have a number of exciting new releases for June.

The follow up to their superb Avia B.534 III série comes in the shape of the IV série with an enclosed cockpit.

Meanwhile, fans of classic jets have a Weekend Edition of the Mirage IIIC RF to look forward to and Eduard are bound to make a lot of friends with the release of a new set of 1/48 scale figures - WW2 RAF Pilots (judging from the box-art, we may be able to look forward to some ground-crew too...).
  • Ed_Avia_box
Eduard have been busy again! The big news for most of us is sure to be the release of the first of Eduard's new Avia B.534 series, but there's plenty more to look forward to, with a new boxing of the 1/48 scale Mirage and the usual plethora of etched detail sets.
With so much effort going into the final preparations for their forthcoming kits like the Bf 110 and Avia B-534 III, you might be forgiven for thinking that Eduard would be taking their foot off the pedal a bit in other areas, but April still looks set to be a busy month with plenty of new aircraft kits and accessories sets.
Eduard have sent us details of their March releases. There's plenty to look forward to - and it's great to see the venerable Tamiya 1/48 scale Lancaster get its turn in the limelight - but one item is surely bound to grab the attention... the long-awaited Royal Class Fw 190!

Although the Czech company Eduard are particularly known for their Photo-Etch upgrade sets,, 2007 will see a significant increase in their range of FULL plastic kits...
If you want to detail your Wellington, your He 177 or your Fw 190 A-5, take a look at these impressive pictures of Eduard's latest Photo etched Sets!
Eduard have sent us some pictures of their new plastic kits (Me 262B DUAL COMBO, Spad XIII early DUAL COMBO and Roland C.II Weekend Edition). They are available now and you should see them soon on the shelves of your Local Hobby Shop.
Eduard have sent us the list of what they have up their sleeve for February. There are three kits planned - the exciting new 1/72 SPAD XII in a Dual Combo form and the diminutive 1/144 Me 262B. Continuing the successful WEEKEND series comes the Roland C.II.

The big news in the PE ranges surely has to be the major upgrade that Eduard are applying to the Trumpeter Wellington, with new interior and flaps sets hot on the heels of their earlier bomb-bay.

Along with the new kits and PE sets comes the news that the highly anticipated ROYAL CLASS Fw 190A-8 is on track for a March release, so watch out for announcements on the Eduard website, because this kit will undoubtedly sell out very quickly.
Looking through Eduard's plans for 2007 is almost daunting... there are just so many projects! The full list can be found in their January newsletter, but I've picked out some of the highlights that caught my eye.


Obviously, the big news this month must be the release of Eduard's upgraded version of AM's classic 1/48 scale Shturmovik, plus the return of Eduard's own Fw 190 A-8 after the initial production run sold out in record time. But there's masses more exciting stuff among the list of January releases.


Continuing Eduard's highly successful policy of giving a new lease of life to Accurate Miniatures kits, the magnificent 1/48 scale IL-2M Shturmovik has been re-boxed with new features to bring it up to the latest standards.
Following the phenomenal success of their Fw 190 series, it was a safe bet that Eduard would have something special up their sleeve for the anticipated Royal Class version. But few could have guessed how unique this kit would turn out to be!
With the weather turning colder, thoughts turn to projects to while away those long winter evenings ahead. Eduard certainly have plenty of new releases to keep aircraft modellers out of mischief!
We normally have to wait for their Newsletter, but Eduard have sent through details of their Aircraft releases for November. No pics - the news is so hot, they haven't got the packshots done yet.
It's no surprise that Eduard's October Newsletter is dominated by the release of their brand new 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190! There's a detailed look at the impressive new kit, with an explanation of the company's rationale behind it and photos of the first built-up samples.
The excitement over the autumn line-up from Eduard is overshadowed by personal tragedy within the company.
You think it's too hot to build models in the summer days? Well, Eduard have released a nice and interesting cocktail of new references for the month August. I'm sure you will find something for you in the list. Check it out!
The summer is normally considered a fairly quiet time of year in modelling terms, but Eduard's extraordinary output continues unabated, with a bundle of new kits and accessories catering for all interests.
Eduard have been as busy as usual, with a long list of new kits and accessories this month.
Of course the big news from Eduard this month is that their brand new Polikarpov I-16 is shipping.The first release is the I-16 Type 10 with Soviet VVS markings. A special Spanish edition will follow it as a Dual Combo, with decals for four Republican and four Fascist airctraft. And that will not be the last of the I-16 line, with the Type 24 being prepared for July, and the Type 17, 18, and 29, to follow after that.
Eduard's brand new 1/48 scale Polikarpov I-16 Type 10 is almost ready to ship. The latest word is that the kit will be released on May 1st.
There's plenty for all aircraft modellers in Eduard's April line-up, with a total of four new kit releases this month along with a mass of new etched sets.
Eduard probably raised a few eyebrows some months ago with their bold announcement of a new series of 1/48 scale Fw 190s. Having virtually cornered the market with their high quality WW1 models, Eduard now seem determined to take on the Big Boys in the highly competitive area of mainstream WW2 kits.
Once again, a considerable number of new releases from Eduard including two new full-kits in 1/48th and 1/72nd scale...
Eduard are as prolific as ever and the following is just a taste of what they have in store for aircraft modellers this winter.
