Welsh Models, the leading producers of multi media multi engine kits have announced the news of three 1/72 new releases, two DH Comets and a DC-9 and have released test shots of their new Boeing 747 in 1/144.
Welsh Models well known for their range of multi media civil and military multi engined aircraft have announced their future releases in 1/144 and 1/72 scale. What a fantastic list of types to be released. I am particularly looking forward to seeing the 1/144 Boeing 777, De Havilland Canada DHC-7 in PAN AM Express livery and the 1/72 DC-9-30.
Those very busy folk creating their superb line of multi-engined aircraft have issued this news sheet, with details of their forthcoming releases. Really looking forward to the DH Dash 7 series.
The industrious folk at Welsh Models have another new release in the offing, which is currently with the resin moulders. The new release will be the de Havilland Dash 8-300 series.
Following on from their successful 1/72 release of the Comet I, Welsh Models are to release a 1/72 Comet 4C and the military version the C4. The kit is currently being readied for moulding. Welsh Models have released images of the pattern parts, which make up the kit. Hopefully the kits will be released in the new year.
Welsh models new releases are a Belgian AF Boxcar in their line of 1/144 Military Transport Series and a BOAC Comet 4 in their 1/144 Skyliner series.
Welsh Models next release will be the Boeing 737-200 in Ryanair's 'Jaguar' livery. With a wing span of 15.5 inches [39 cm] and a length of 16.5 inches [41.9 cm], this will be an impressive model. This being the 200 series it has the Pratt and Whitney JT8D engines, which were phased out because of the environmental concerns of this type of engine.

These differences include new Rolls Royce AE 2100 D3 turboprops with Dowty R391 six bladed composite scimitar propellers.
