      Masters for Cessna 310B/U-3A in both 1/72 and 1/48:


      A close-up of the 1/72 masters:

      Masters for the deHavilland DH.91 Albatross is 1/72:


      Kits will be available from Hannant's in due course. Having assisted in the design of the 310B kit, I am very pleased at the appearance of the masters.

      The Albatross will come with decals for Imperial Airways, while the 310 will be issued in two versions. One will be a civil aircraft with Sabena and Rhodesian civil decals, while the other will be a U-3A with 3 different USAF schemes including a U-2 chase plane.

      Good news. But for the Cessna it is again the 310B. I have already the Lift Here model:

      I am still waiting for one I have flown: 310Q or R.

      The Lift Here kit is not very accurate. The AIM kit was designed in CATIA from official Cessna documentation.
