According to HobbyLink Japan (http://www.hlj.com), you can now add the following ...

46. Martin B-10
47. Curtiss H75A4 Mohawk IV

And 45. should read "Caproni-Campini N1".

Luigi Stipa's only project built by Caproni was the little ducted monstrosity modelled by KdK at No. 20. I get the feeling Caproni saw the result, was humiliated by other manufacturers, then told Stipa politely to "go away". For his part, Stipa went on to claim that he should have been credited as the inventor of the jet engine, protested that the pulse jet used in the V1 violated his patent rights and apparently died a bitter 92-year old in 1992. True story.

Still, his creation makes for an intriguing little model. And if anyone wants to see a Caproni-Stipa that is somewhat larger than 1/144, a 3/5 scale piloted version was built in Queensland in the late 1990's, and was flown twice in 2001. It is now on static display at an air museum in Toowoomba (see http://www.airliners.net/photo/Caproni- ... 45008d32ef).

Peter,

Add the following to your listing ...

52. Manchurian Industrial (Manchu) Ki-79 type 2 Trainer (Monodentate type)
53. Mitsubishi 9 Single-seat Fighter Prototype (Ka-14)
54. Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IX
55. Kyushu J7W1 Shinden
56. Savoia-Marchetti S.64

All are pre-WW2/WW2-vintage warplanes with the exception of the S.64, which achieved a number of long distance flight records in the mid- to late-1920's (e.g. see http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/ ... 00646.html). The excessive wingspan of the S.64 is reminiscent of the Vickers Wellesley, which set its own flight duration records some years later. The Ki-79 was a Manchurian-built trainer modification of the Ki-27 Nate, whilst the Ka-14 was a pre-war experimental design which looks like an A5M Claude with gull wings.

The Shinden has been done in the scale before, as a Popy "special" long OOP, a Cambus gashapon with barely passable detailing and an F-Toys release (Wing Kit Collection Vol. 1, No. 6 - one of the more difficult "standard" trading minis to get your hands on, IMHO). Probably explains why Kami has included it in his range. Note that HLJ list the Shinden as "J7W2", which was the proposed turbojet-powered variant. The kit art is definitely of the radial-engined, prop-driven J7W1, although I'm sure it wouldn't take much to convert the model to the IJA 1946 "What If".

An update on Kamide Koro Koro from an order I'd placed with Akira at Radjapan:

'I got an email from Kamide today. They are almost ready to ship now. Hope they wouldn’t postpone it again. Yes,Kamide has a Blackburn Roc. But they wouldn’t produce a Blackburn Skua. Because they once told me that they decided not to produce any more planes or tanks as “Kamide koro koro” brand in the future. :(
Lately,they have set up a new company,”PMF”. And they are concentrating on producing cars such as Bugatti T251 F1 etc. now.'

Baldrick,
Is that what Radjapan told you?
That is sad news if true.
Although I haven't built any KdK models (yet) I do have a LOT of them as they covered such unusual subjects. Their models aren't great BUT for a 'garage kit' maker they are good and a modeller (as oppossed to a 'assembler') can turn them into something very nice.

Peter

That is a shame, KdK did produce a whole host of items that wouldn't have seem the light of day otherwise. Was there an indication as to the scale of the cars were, as i notice he did do a 1/144 Mercedes Land Speed Record car from the 30's. On the occasions I have been to Brooklands and seen their Land Speed cars and displays I have thought the aero shapes look very nice indead, I'd imagine for cars though he may be going to the larger scales?

Sorry, no indication of scale for the vehicle kits. Guess I'll be converting Rocs to Skuas at some point!

that is disappointing news. I have a few kits squirreled away, but Ive been hoping more of the catalog would be available again.
The Martin B-10 in particular, and a few others.
I wonder if he would allow another vendor to use his molds..?
