I'm happy to announce, that German "Sparta-Modellbau" soon will release their 1st complete kit in 1/48 scale. This will be the start of a new 1/48 scale line. The first 1/48 scale kit (end November 2005):
# Mercedes 170 VK - (Baureihe W136 - Kübelsitzwagen, Militärausf.)
More infos can be found here (http://www.autogallery.org.ru/mb170vk.htm
The master model is of excellent quality. Two other masters for 1/48 scale kits are already finished and ready for production. I can't be more specific, but these will be absolutely great models! Different subjects, but all are very interesting and have never before been available in this scale!
See their website for more details in the future:
Thanks to Janis for the informations!
