Fine Molds will release three new variants of their splendid 1/48th 'Babs' kit in December this year. IJA Type 97 Model 1 'Tiger Troop' (above) features the early variant with markings options for two aircraft of Dokuritsu Hiko Dai 18 Chutai and what appears to be an aircraft of Kumagaya Army Aviation School.
In addition the famous civil 'Kamikaze' record-breaker will be released as a separate kit (above) with two versions of markings (below).
Also, completing the trio, the IJA Type 97 Model II '8th Squadron' kit (above) with markings for two different aircraft of Hiko Dai 8 Sentai. Price of these kits direct from Japan will be about £21 each.
With thanks to Dan Salamone for the heads-up on these releases.
