Eduard 2021 releases

January 7, 2021 · in News · · 8 · 3.1K

That Tempest II in July is nice. Hopefully the S.199 will be in 1/48 first. 4-cannon Fw-190A-5 is also interesting, as is the Spitfire V in the fall. I like the Fw-190F-8.

Doing 109Es with the Special Hobby kit is great - that is absolutely the best 109E in 1/72.

All the kits announced thus far, of course several old Weekend edition kits will also be brought to the new standard (decals for 4 marking options) etc.

  1. Few that I will likely grab, but some good options considering their recent incident. Great to see!

  2. I seem to recall they had announced a Halberstadt B.II a long long time ago. I miss those days...

  3. Don’t want to sound pretentious but this year's new kits are ok but not terribly exciting, it was hard to compete with their 2020 catalogue to be fair.
    To me the highlight is, at last, the declination of the F variant of the 190. Their pt.3 of the Spitfire will be a best seller no doubt. Just hope the increased value offered in the revamped “weekend” boxes won’t increase their price significantly, that would mean an increase on the price tag of the Profipack editions also

  4. Best thing of all is that they are in business after their mishap!

  5. Tempest II! In 1/48!
    I remember emailing Eduard about this in 2016. They (optimistically) said end of 2017... early 2018. Three years late, but better than never.

  6. A while back saw a rumor that Eduard was going to release a modern P-36 Hawk. Has there been any word from Eduard on that?
