The Nuremberg Fair of Toys and Models 2018 is behind us. For our company or the staff of our trade fair company participated, the round-trip meetings and negotiations ended. It was nice to meet our customers and meet new ones. From all sides, it has been said that the quality of our models has risen greatly over the past few years. This is a pleasure for us, on the one hand, and we are committed not to let our laurels. In the future, we will do our best to make our models even better and better. At the fair, we presented upcoming models at different stages of development. Most probably liked the introduced Viggens 1/72 (prepared in cooperation with Tarangus), Night Fighter Meteors 1/72 and Siebel 204 1/48. Among the sets and models from CMK's resin were detailed models of artillery weapons from I. St. wars that were a CMK exposure magnet and detailed sets for the new P-40 Warhawk and J2M

Dornier Do 27 "German, Spanish and Belgian Service" 1/72

Art.no. Scale Barcode
100-SH72327 1/72 8594071085841

Dr Claudius Dornier ml. left after the Second World War, like other German designers abroad. He was afraid of the ban on aircraft construction. He founded the OTEDA factory (Oficinas Técnicas Dornier) in Spain. Here, in the mid-1950s, the Spanish Ministry of Aviation constructed a 4-seat all-metal high-lift with STOL features, marked Dornier Do 25. Two prototypes were built by the CASA factory. The new Dornier Do 27 prototype with the Lycoming GSO-480-B1B6 was built in the reconstructed Dornier factory in Germany. Dornier Do 27 was accepted into series production and became the first large-scale aircraft in Germany after World War II. Altogether, 428 pieces of aircraft were produced, which were gradually taken up in several versions by three components of the newly built German armed forces, the Air Force, the Navy and the Ground Forces. At the same time, the production of a 50-liter series for the Spanish Air Force with the designation CASA C-127 / U.9 was launched in Spain. The Dornier Do 27 was produced in several versions with a chassis, engine type and propeller used, with dual or simple steering and a vertical tail. Until 27, it was supplied to many European armed forces (eg Portugal, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland), but also flew elsewhere in the world. In addition to several African countries, including Brazil, the state of Israel and Turkey. Outside the military forces, the 27 have been widely deployed by civilian users. Airplanes were used to "bush pilots" in harsh conditions of irregular traffic in Africa and South America. In Europe, they were used as hiking and parachutists. The model made of steel molds has detailed parts distributed into four frames of gray plastic parts and a frame of clear parts. These can be glued to open the front and rear doors on both sides of the hull and be seen on the details of the interior. German machine in a typical camouflage with orange accessories and black and white striped propellers, a Belgian sculpture machine and an aluminum and light blue spray machine operated in the Spanish Sahara

100-SH72386 1/72 8594071086527

 

The Mirage F.1 owes its Dassault private initiative to its creation. Armée de l Air ordered the construction of two prototypes marked Mirage F.2 and F.3 with JTF10 engines. But Dassault has built another prototype at its own expense with smaller dimensions and the Atar 9K engine. This prototype, which flew for the first time on December 23, 1966, was selected and serial machines introduced into Armee de l'Air as Mirage F.1C single-seat fighters and Mirage F.1B two-seat training fighters. During the service, part of the Mirage F.1 was modified by fitting the Mirage F.1C-200 refueling attachment. The French Air Force also used two reconnaissance versions, the Mirage F. 1CR and the Mirage F.1-200 Mirage F.1-200. Armée de l'Air received a total of 246 copies of all versions of Mirage F.1. Mirage F.1 has also become a successful export article. In Europe, Spain and Greece included it. In South America, Ecuador was the only user, but in Africa and Asia, Mirage F.1 was included in the equipment of Gabon, South Africa, Morocco, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Qatar and Kuwait. Mirage F.1 has been involved in many conflicts across the globe, from fights without firing Greek fighters with Turkish opponents, through French actions in Chad, Ecuadorian border conflicts with Peru, fighting the South African Mirage against Cuban airmen from Angola to war against Iraq, where Mirage F.1 flew on both sides. Even today, Mirage F.1 is in the hands of several states. The detailed Mirage version of the EQ / ED version has parts divided into seven frames, it also contains a frame of clear parts and resin castings of the Exocet rocket and rack. The decals offer two Iraqi machines, each with a different type of camouflage and one Iranian and Libyan machine


Blackburn Skua Mk.II 1/48 – reissue

Art.no. Scale Barcode
100-SH48046 1/48 8594071080419

In 1934, Air Ministry issued the O.27 / 34 specification. They included requirements for a multipurpose airplane service. The machine was to be used as a fighter and as a dive bomber. The aircraft carrier fighter in the then British concept was a two-seater designed for long operational flights and combat with the reconnaissance machines of the enemy. He did not plan to fight the enemy bombers, let alone fighters. The B.24 project of Blackburn engineer ing. GE Petty was chosen as the best. He designed a all-metal low wing wing with folding wings and retractable chassis. Under the fuselage, the airplane had a hook and a 226-pound bumper. The first prototype, later named Skua Mk.I, took off on February 9, 1937. After the successful tests, serial production started immediately. Bristol Perseus XII engines were given serial machines and were labeled Skua Mk.II. The battle squadrons number 800, 801, 803 and 806 were delivered to the training squadrons and to the units of the target trappers. Despite all the rush of production, they were considered obsolete in the fighter role. With the outbreak of war, the Skua aircraft quickly got into combat, operating both from aircraft carriers and ground bases. During the first bomber attack on September 14th on a German submarine, two airplanes from a three-member swarm were lost by their own low-grade bombs. On September 26 they shot down two aircraft from No 803 sqn. Enemy Dornier Do 18. It is the first confirmed British air victory in the Second World War. To Skue, the first is more. During the Norwegian campaign on April 10, 1940, sixteen Skua planes sank the German cruiser Königsberg. Airplanes No 800 sqn. headed by Capt. RT Partridgem and No 803 sqn. led Lt. WP Lucy started from Hatston base at Orkney. It was the first successful aircraft attack on the WWII. Skua airplanes participated in the fighting at Dunkirk and aboard the HMS Ark Royal struggled to fight in the Mediterranean. Here, Skua achieved another first prize, on July 3, 1940, the Skua from the Ark Royal fought the fighters of a former ally, France. He became the first British aircraft to fight against the French and also the first to be lost in this undeclared war. The last Skuy were withdrawn from the HMS Ark Royal deck in April 1941. Then they served only at the non-combat squadron. Their combat career was relatively short, but despite the low power of the squads as fighters, there were several eses with more than five victories. As bombers they could have been much more successful, but they were not properly used by the Admiralty, to the detriment of the Royal Navy. We return to the offer after a few years. Four frames of gray plastic parts are complemented by a frame of clear parts, etchings and detailed PUR parts. Decals offer three machines in the FAA camouflage.
