Coming up from Revell in 2016

I just received my leaflet from our local hobby shop sowing what’s u from Revell for late 2015 or early 2016. Usually this promotional leaflet comes with upcoming models from Revell printed on both sides. This is the first time I see this promo leaf with just one side printed. Usually when we receive this promo, the model kits featured on them are either available or about to hit the shelves of your local hobby shops or you favorite on-line vendor.

As you can see on the scan posted below, the following kits are coming from Revell for 2016. With these release Revell is offering the 1/48 Tie Fighter and 1/48 X-Wing Fighter. Both models are from their Master Series and are a reprint from the previous Fine Molds offerings available in Japan.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
Happy Holidays and happy modelling from my desk. Best wishes to you in 2016.
