      It's FINALLY happening. Replicas by JC from Argentina has announced they will be manufacturing the baby Fokker Jet.... CANNOT WAIT. I am from Lethbridge, Alberta, which was home for Time Air... that became Canadi>n Regional. The airline amassed one of the largest fleets of the first gen. Fokker Jet.

      Looking forward to it being on sale! Here's their facebook page, with a picture of the pre-production mock-up, and some sweet ground equipment that will be available Separately:

      of course, based on the photo provided, I hope the kits comes with a #2 engine!

      Love Kurt's stuff.... absolutely no one can doubt the quality and accuracy. This one looks pretty darn good for injection molded, and I am in a sooner rather than later mode for it.

      All:

      Just to clarify--this is a resin kit, not an injection-molded-styrene kit, right? By the looks of their product line, it appears that everything else they've done has been in resin, which is fine, but just wanted to be sure.

      It looks pretty cute!

      When clicking on the F28 image and proceeding to next images
      it appears that they also provide the

      Boeing 717 and MD80 in 1/72

      along with decals for them.

      Not sure this has been mentioned before.

      Cheers,

      Christian
