Mike/IHP brought the sprues of the new Colossus kit to MosquitoCon earlier this month. I was certainly impressed. It's every bit as sharply molded as one would hope.


I was thinking of bringing the Colossus samples to the 2019 Nationals in Chattanooga this year, but I checked air ticket prices and travel distances and it's not going to work out this year, apart from the fact the weekend conflicts with another event I have. I wish one day the Nats would come to the Northeast; they seem to stay in the South or the Midwest. Shame, too, because by August the planes will be ready and the kit will be just about ready overall for release.

I'm still hoping for a 1:350 kit of the Colosssus (and/or Majestic) class, but in the meantime I'm progressing slowly with my Heller kit conversion:
