On 16 July 1969 at 9.32 a.m. the gigantic Saturn V of Cape Canaveral, the most important journey in the history of mankind, was launched. The giant Saturn V consisted of three main stages, was 110 m high and weighed 3,000 tons. It could carry a payload of 50 tons and reached a speed of 11.2 km/second. The 394,000 km journey to the moon lasted 72 hours. After reaching a low Earth orbit, the upper assembly with the Apollo capsule received thrust from the third stage of the launcher to reach flight speed to the Moon. Later, the Apollo assembly detached itself from the rocket, turned and pulled the Lunar Module out of its protective casing. Coupled together in this way, this unit reached the moon and swung into a lunar orbit. After some lunar orbits the lunar module separated with the astronauts N. Armstrong and E. Aldrin on board from the command capsule in which only the astronaut M. Collins remained.

Coming soon – 25186 JGSDF Type 90 Tank model. This 1:35 scale kit is paired up with a Type 73 Light Truck and includes several different marking options for both

This model kit set pairs its classic model of the Type 90 tank (from Item 35208) with Japanese model maker Fine Molds’ Type 73, in what promises to be a great value diorama in a box!

The Type 90 main battle tank reached units from 1991, with 341 examples manufactured by 2009. A 120mm smoothbore gun put it on the cutting edge at the time of its design. The Type 73 was adopted back in 1973 but served concurrently with the Type 90 until deployment ended around 2010. An 80hp engine and capacity for 6 passengers made it a highly versatile servant to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF).

ALMOST READY!

It's amazing how much space is taken up by several hundred bagged kits … that are now just waiting for the decals to arrive!

Here, folks, is our latest 1/144 injected kit: the Bombardier (de Havilland Canada) Dash 8 – 300. And here is the first round of kit decal options (it will be one option per kit), shown with a couple of the kit's features in the CAD photos.

There will be a clear injected canopy option, of course, or you can use the decal windscreen. As you can see, the cockpit is detailed, the props can either be cruise or feathered, wheels up (with separate door plugs) or down, resin detail parts, etc.

And, there are locating pins and slots to aid assembly.

But wait, that's not all! The decals are silk-screen, "island" productions by Ronin Graphics!

Full release announcement soon! (Pending the lousy hot weather here in Oz that's holding up the final decal printing.)
