Good News for those looking for a new CF-105 Avro Arrow. I just received a message from Darren at Hobby Craft Canada and he says there will be stock this coming September. After a long wait both 1/78 and 1/42 will ready and priced est. at $28USD and $48USD respectively. Although those prices are not firm, they're in the ballpark.

That's great news HG
It's about time one of the model manufactures produced a modern mould of this classic cold war interceptor.

I presume you mean 1/72 and 1/48 HG. I'm sure that's just a slip of the fingers

All the best.

Are these just re-releases of the existing molds? Hobbycraft Canada has had these molds for a very long time, while the 1/48 scale are newer, both are neither to write home about.

Is there any information that these molds have been upgraded at all?

Exactly what I wondered. The old kits are pretty basic.
