The last fight of the MB 200


Marcel Bloch MB 200

Kit No: 0939

Scale: 1/72

Type: Injection Moulded Plastic

In June 1941, things were not going well for the British Empire and Commonwealth forces, which had been disastrously over stretched in the Western Desert, Greece and Crete and had therefore been soundly defeated on all three fronts. To make matters worse, an uprising in Iraq threatened British bases there and more significantly, the vital sources of oil supplies. The British bases were defended by a motley collection of biplanes and training aircraft and some scratched together forces. Facing them was a strong Luftwaffe Kampfgruppe of Heinkel 111, Junkers 52 and Messerschmitt 110 aircraft that had been permitted to transit via Vichy controlled Syria and Lebanon.

About Scale Aircraft Modelling

THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO In for review is the soon to be released Kinetic two seat Harrier. We have beer provided with an unboxed production sample in advance of its official appearance, so a massive thanks to Kinetic for providing the kit. Bear in mind that the kit has not hit the shelves of your favourite retailer so the usual caveat applies in regards to things changing before release. As far as Harriers go this is the first 1/48 mainstream injected moulded two seater of the famous jump jet, so an important release to say the least.
