The October 2009 releases from Eduard are available. This month, the highlight is the Limited Edition boxing of the Airfix 1:48 scale BAC Lightning Mk.1A/Mk.2. For the first time the model includes an Eduard produced resin seat from their forthcoming range of aftermarket sets.
  • move
No sooner has the exciting new 1:48 Messerschmitt Bf 110G-2 arrived than its follow-up is ready and waiting in the wings in the shape of the 'G-4 night-fighter.
  • move
August sees a dramatic return of Eduard's 1:48 Fw 190A with a Dual-Combo Night-Fighter boxing. This is a Limited Run edition of only 1500 kits and is a "Royal Class" kit in all but name, featuring around 390 parts spread over no less than 20 sprues, plus a Wilde Sau badge.
  • move
July looks set to be a busy month for Eduard. The big news is undoubtedly the expansion of their highly regarded 1:48 Bf 110 range to include later versions, with the 'G-2 taking the lead as the first release.

Also new are Weekend Editions of the Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat and Fokker E.V (D.VIII), plus a generous selection of etched sets and masks.
  • move
WW1 enthusiasts get the lion's share of Eduard's new kits in June with Dual Combos of the popular Pfalz D.IIIa and SPAD XIII. The latter is an American Aces special.
  • move
The big news this month is the eagerly expected follow-up to Eduard's 1:32 Bf 109E-1, the 'E-4 - in many people's eyes the definitive "Emil", with wing cannon and square-framed canopy. Also on the kit front, the 1:48 Hellcat returns in a cut-down Weekend Edition.
  • p8174_00b
April looks set to be another busy month for Eduard. No new kits, per se, but the Fw 190 A-5 makes a welcome re-appearance as a Profipack, while the Bf 110E and SPAD XIII are released as Weekend Editions for the first time. On the aftermarket front, there's plenty for everyone, but the highlight may well prove to be the triple-whammy of sets for Revell's big Ju 88A. The cockpit in that kit is already great - and with the addition of etched details, it should be eye-popping!
  • i2009-01_28
March will see the return of some Eduard favourites in new guises. For WW1 enthusiasts, there's the Fokker D.VII in a spectacular Sieben Schwaben Limited Edition, while WW2 modellers can look forward to the popular Fw 190A-8 re-released with brand new markings, plus the I-16 Type 24 in a simplified Weekend Edition with just a single markings option.
  • i2009-01_03
February marks a dramatic move for Eduard with the release of their first 1/32 scale aircraft. The Bf 109E series has been a hot topic for months and, as you can see from the accompanying sprue-shots of the 'E-1, it looks set to be a real cracker!
  • 8156b
WW1 rules the roost this December amongst Eduard's new releases with the brand new 1/48 scale Fokker Eindecker accompanied by the re-released Roland C.II.
  • i2008-10_14
Next month sees the release of Eduard’s Messerschmitt Bf 110D as a stand-alone kit. This was previously only available in the Royal Edition and features a new fuselage moulding with an extended tail for the life-raft housing.

Also appearing again are the popular Albatros D.III and La-7 as Weekend Editions with no photo-etched details and decals for a single colour-scheme each.

On the photo-etch front, there are Big-Ed sets for Grumman “Cat” fans and Hasegawa’s recent Saab Draken comes in for the full Eduard treatment.
  • i2008-09_03
The Grumman hellcat is Eduard's latest Royal Class kit. This time the set will contain two full kits for the F6F-3 and F6F-5, plus resin parts for F6F-3N and F6F-5N night fighters, along with decals for two night fighter schemes. The kit will also contain two resin engines, new resin wheels, and resin machine guns. The PE parts comprise the contents of the existing Big Ed sets. The special bonus for this kit is a 1:1 scale replica of the main engine placard.
  • i2008-08_05
WW1 takes pride of place next month with the release of Eduard's long-awaited 1/48 scale SPAD XIII. The new kit promises exceptional levels of detail, both inside and out, with a comprehensive interior and flying surfaces that feature rib stitching. Markings will be included for four aircraft.
  • i2008-07_06
It's too early for a gimpse of the kit's contents yet, but August will see the return of Eduard's phenomenally successful 1/48 scale Fw 190 in a new guise - the 'F-8 ground attack variant. The kit will include two new sprues containing new wings and an assortment of stores, including various bombs, weapon containers, rockets such as Panzerschreck and Panzerblitz, and fuel tanks.

WW1 enthusiasts have plenty to look forward to, with a Fokker Dr.1 Dual Combo and the addition of the Sopwith Camel to the Weekend range.

Along with the kits, there's the usual bumper harvest of accessories.
  • 8223b
The big news this month is the eagerly awaited return of the 1/48 scale Hellcat, this time in Royal Navy guise as a dual-combo, but there's plenty more to keep us happy should the weather be a washout - Weekend Editions of the Fokker D.VII and Yak 3, plus etched sets for superdetailers and new AviPrint decals.
  • EdRoy110_image001
There weren't any details of the forthcoming Royal Class Messerschmitt Bf 110 in Eduard's usual announcement of the month ahead's releases. The reason is clear now - it's set to be an absolute stunner that fully justifies a News item of its own!
  • 8471b
It's too early for any details - or even the boxart - but Eduard's big release (literally) for June will be the Royal Class Messerschmitt Bf 110 which, if earlier reports are true, will see the first outing of the Bf 110D.

Meanwhile, the P-39 Airacobra returns as a Weekend Edition and there's a healthy line-up of new etched sets and painting masks.
  • 1136b
Eduard maintain their remarkable record of releasing something new every month - and May sees really exciting news for WW1 modellers with the first appearance of their new 1/48 scale Fokker Dr.1 as part of a double-pack von Richthofen brothers special.
  • i2008-03_01
Proof the old motto is true, as Eduard re-box the Airfix 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk. 22/24 for the second time in a limited edition. Complete with excellent new resin parts and decals, the kit sold out almost immediately on its first appearance and is likely to do the same again - so grab it while you can if you're a Spitfire fan.

Also new for April will be the delayed 1/72 scale R.F.C. figures set and the Polikarpov I-16 Type 10 in a Weekend Edition guise, plus the first etched sets to complement Eduard's own 1/48 scale Hellcat. Add a healthy dose of Thunderschiefs, Wellingtons, Chinooks and Storchs - plus much more - and April looks set to be a busy month for Eduard.
  • 8430b
Following the release of their impressive new 1/48 scale Hellcat, it's not surprising that Eduard are taking things a little easier this month. Nevertheless, there's still an exciting line-up for March, with a Weekend Edition Fw 190A-5, a whole bundle of etched accessories for the big Trumpeter Dauntless and, just in case you thought Tamiya had pretty much covered all the bases in their lovely quarterscale Storch, no less than 3 etched sets to take it to new levels of detail!
  • 7503b
WW1 enthusiasts looking forward to the release of Eduard's set of 1/72 scale Royal Flying Corps figures this month will have to wait a little longer.
  • i2007-11_08
The first of Eduard's new original releases for 2008 arrives next month in the shape of their eagerly awaited 1/48 scale Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat. While the earlier Fw 190 and Bf 110 have been quite complex kits, this time Eduard are aiming to make the Hellcat much more straightforward and aimed at the mainstream modeller. Although it may be somewhat simpler, we can still expect the company's attention to surface detail, as the accompanying photo of the fuselage of a test-shot shows. Also exciting for Navy fans, February sees the ex-MPM/Special Hobby Fulmar issued in a new form - the Mk.II, complete with the prominent cheek inlets and a set of 5 x colour schemes.
  • i2007-11_07
After a busy Christmas line-up, Eduard keep the pace up with a bundle of new releases for January.

With the brand new Grumman Hellcat looking set for release early in the spring, Eduard have concentrated on returning to some old favourites in new guises. There are truly spectacular new boxings of the Brisfit and Mirage 2000, while the Fw 190A-8 must surely be the most elaborate "Weekend Edition" yet! The highlights among the new photoetched sets are a whole series designed for Trumpeter's big Grumman Wildcat, but there's plenty else too, with some old favourites like Eduard's own neat little Bf 108 getting some deserved time in the limelight again.
  • 2106b
Eduard have a packed line-up planned for Christmas, with WW1 modellers doing especially well thanks to quarterscale Albatros D.I and D.IIs, plus a 1/72 scale Nieuport Ni-23 double pack. Jet enthusiasts aren't left out either, with the popular L.39 appearing in fresh colours. Meanwhile, Eduard will extend their range of quarterscale figures with a set of late-WW2 Luftwaffe fighter crew.

There are comprehensive aftermarket sets for Special Hobby's big Airacobra and Zvezda's La-5FN, plus much more...
  • Ed_Bf110C
Turning real-life chronology on its head, while some people are still waiting to see the Messerschmitt Bf 110E on the shelves in their local hobby shop, Eduard already have it's successor kit ready and waiting in the wings - the Bf 110C.

November looks set to be a busy month, with a new Dual Combo Airacobra on the way - plus an intriguing item # 7501 - Czech AF... no details of what that is yet.

On the etched front, there's a lot to look forward to. Trumpeter's neat little new MiG-3 is almost begging for an etched upgrade and Eduard have been quick off the mark to oblige. Meanwhile, there's a maintenance ladder for the Bf 110E, along with an etched detail set - and this for an already phenomenally detailed model!
  • Ed_Mirage2000
In answer to the overwhelming demand for their Limited Edition Mirage 2000, Eduard have announced a one-off extra run of the kit - a Limited Re-Edition - so now's your chance if you missed the kit first time around.

Also new next month will be the latest addition to the phenomenally successful Fw 190 range - a Fw 190A-8 R/2, previously only available in the Royal Edition.

October looks set to be a good month for Great War enthusiasts, with an Albatros D.V Dual Combo in 1/72 scale and a new set of French WW1 quarterscale figures.
  • 8203b
Despite a packed line-up of new kits, etched sets and painting masks, there'll really only be one story for many of us among Eduard's releases for September... the long-awaited 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110E.
  • bf_painted-cockpit03b
Eduard have released the first pics of the painted test-shot cockpit and nose-guns for their eagerly awaited 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 110E.
  • Ed_I-16-29
Despite going flat-out to get ready for the release of their new 1/48 scale Bf 110E, Eduard have still managed to come up with an impressive selection of new kits, etched sets and masks for next month.

While the colourful Polikarpov I-16 and Albatros D.V Dual Combo are bound to grab the attention, just as exciting is the release of the first of Eduard's new self-adhesive etched sets. These sound very intriguing - look out for a full report on them soon on Aeroscale.
  • ED_Fw190A6_Boxtop
Due to an oversight, the first batch of Eduard's superb new 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-6 was shipped without instructions for the painting masks and the comprehensive set of stencil decals.
Next month will be a busy one for Eduard, with the first of this summer's new kits appearing. The superb Focke-Wulf 190 series continues with the Fw 190A-6 and modern jet fans have a brand new Mirage 2000D/N, plus there's a new set of Russian figures in 1/48 scale and the usual plethora of new etched sets and masks.

  • Ed_Avia_B534_IV_Boxtop
Eduard have a number of exciting new releases for June.

The follow up to their superb Avia B.534 III série comes in the shape of the IV série with an enclosed cockpit.

Meanwhile, fans of classic jets have a Weekend Edition of the Mirage IIIC RF to look forward to and Eduard are bound to make a lot of friends with the release of a new set of 1/48 scale figures - WW2 RAF Pilots (judging from the box-art, we may be able to look forward to some ground-crew too...).
  • Ed_Avia_box
Eduard have been busy again! The big news for most of us is sure to be the release of the first of Eduard's new Avia B.534 series, but there's plenty more to look forward to, with a new boxing of the 1/48 scale Mirage and the usual plethora of etched detail sets.
With so much effort going into the final preparations for their forthcoming kits like the Bf 110 and Avia B-534 III, you might be forgiven for thinking that Eduard would be taking their foot off the pedal a bit in other areas, but April still looks set to be a busy month with plenty of new aircraft kits and accessories sets.
Eduard have sent us details of their March releases. There's plenty to look forward to - and it's great to see the venerable Tamiya 1/48 scale Lancaster get its turn in the limelight - but one item is surely bound to grab the attention... the long-awaited Royal Class Fw 190!
  • ed1
Although the Czech company Eduard are particularly known for their Photo-Etch upgrade sets,, 2007 will see a significant increase in their range of FULL plastic kits...
If you want to detail your Wellington, your He 177 or your Fw 190 A-5, take a look at these impressive pictures of Eduard's latest Photo etched Sets!
Eduard have sent us some pictures of their new plastic kits (Me 262B DUAL COMBO, Spad XIII early DUAL COMBO and Roland C.II Weekend Edition). They are available now and you should see them soon on the shelves of your Local Hobby Shop.
Eduard have sent us the list of what they have up their sleeve for February. There are three kits planned - the exciting new 1/72 SPAD XII in a Dual Combo form and the diminutive 1/144 Me 262B. Continuing the successful WEEKEND series comes the Roland C.II.

The big news in the PE ranges surely has to be the major upgrade that Eduard are applying to the Trumpeter Wellington, with new interior and flaps sets hot on the heels of their earlier bomb-bay.

Along with the new kits and PE sets comes the news that the highly anticipated ROYAL CLASS Fw 190A-8 is on track for a March release, so watch out for announcements on the Eduard website, because this kit will undoubtedly sell out very quickly.
Looking through Eduard's plans for 2007 is almost daunting... there are just so many projects! The full list can be found in their January newsletter, but I've picked out some of the highlights that caught my eye.


Obviously, the big news this month must be the release of Eduard's upgraded version of AM's classic 1/48 scale Shturmovik, plus the return of Eduard's own Fw 190 A-8 after the initial production run sold out in record time. But there's masses more exciting stuff among the list of January releases.


Continuing Eduard's highly successful policy of giving a new lease of life to Accurate Miniatures kits, the magnificent 1/48 scale IL-2M Shturmovik has been re-boxed with new features to bring it up to the latest standards.
Following the phenomenal success of their Fw 190 series, it was a safe bet that Eduard would have something special up their sleeve for the anticipated Royal Class version. But few could have guessed how unique this kit would turn out to be!
With the weather turning colder, thoughts turn to projects to while away those long winter evenings ahead. Eduard certainly have plenty of new releases to keep aircraft modellers out of mischief!
We normally have to wait for their Newsletter, but Eduard have sent through details of their Aircraft releases for November. No pics - the news is so hot, they haven't got the packshots done yet.
It's no surprise that Eduard's October Newsletter is dominated by the release of their brand new 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190! There's a detailed look at the impressive new kit, with an explanation of the company's rationale behind it and photos of the first built-up samples.
The excitement over the autumn line-up from Eduard is overshadowed by personal tragedy within the company.
You think it's too hot to build models in the summer days? Well, Eduard have released a nice and interesting cocktail of new references for the month August. I'm sure you will find something for you in the list. Check it out!
The summer is normally considered a fairly quiet time of year in modelling terms, but Eduard's extraordinary output continues unabated, with a bundle of new kits and accessories catering for all interests.
Eduard have been as busy as usual, with a long list of new kits and accessories this month.
