Kopro 1/72 Kawanishi Shiden & Shiden-Kai Family

I suspect, but have not been able to confirm yet, that the new Kopro "George" kits from the Czech Republic are connected to the highly respected Aoshima range. The box art is similar but different! They are available direct from - the official Kopro agent - who can supply the whole range of Kopro kits. Price about £8-9. If they are the Aoshima kits, this is good news as they have been hard to find lately.

More good news is that the Kopro decal sheets are available separately (from the same source) and at a very reasonable price too.

AFAIK these kits are ex-Aoshima ones indeed.

Thanks for that Piotr. Hopefully some more details about the kits will be forthcoming.

My name is Boris and I am writing from Toronto ON, Canada. Just read your posting about KP's new releases.

Please find included the link to Model Airplane International site. At the very bottom of the page below there is a confirmation that these KP kits are Aoshima molds.
