Hello All,
This Czech releases are interesting news. All four of these kits
appeared from this source anywhere from 7 to 10 years ago. A Czech
produced resin Breguet 14 was the basis for the Merlin Models short run
injection kit released in 1985. The same was true for the Merlin Junkers
J-4 released about 1988. I seem to remember Wings producing H B WD 12s of
some description as vac forms. I don't have these, can anyone confirm??

>Czechmaster 1/72
> Hansa Brandenburg WD 12 III
> Hansa Brandenburg WD 12 V
> Junkers J1/J4
> Bregeut 14

The rest sounds really good.

I don't recall the Fe 2b being referred to as a "Gunbus" though. I
thought this was only applied to Vickers FB pusher machines (also the
subject of a Merlin injection molded kit).
