Pour les Anglophobes, Y a Google Trad !!! ;o) "The third series of Wings of War Miniatures WW2 will arrive this summer, featuring the planes Curtiss P-40E Warhawk, Yakovlev Yak-1, Kawasaki Ki-61 and Reggiane Re.2001 Falco, each one in three different painting schemes.
The Curtiss P-40E Warhawk was an American single-engine, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground attack aircraft, which was used by the air forces of 28 nations, including those of most Allied powers during World War II. The three airplane packs of this model will present versions piloted by David Lee "Tex" Hill and Captain William Lott, from United States Army Air Force, and by Sergent Chef Jean Gisclon, from the Forces Aériennes Françaises.
The Soviet fighter aircraft Yakovlev Yak-1 was a single-seat monoplane with a composite structure and wooden wings, extremely maneuverable, fast and well armed, and also easy to maintain and reliable. The three Yakovlev Yak-1 featured in the third series of Wings of War WW2 Miniatures are the ones piloted by Lydia Litvjak (one of the world’s only two female fighter aces), Capitan Sergej Danilovich Lugansky, and sub lieutenant Albert Durand, from Soviet Air Force.
The Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien was a Japanese fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force that looked so different -compared with the usual radial-engined Japanese fighters- that the Allies at first believed it to be of German or Italian origin. It was the only mass-produced Japanese fighter of the war to use a liquid-cooled inline V engine. The three miniatures of this fighter featured were piloted by Jotohei Matsumi Nakano, Shosa Teruhiko Kobayashi and Daii Chuichi Ichikawa, from the Imperial Japanese Army.
The Italian fighter Reggiane Re.2001 Falco, thanks to its maneuverability, could dogfight with more powerful opponents like the Supermarine Spitfire. A contemporary of the renowned Macchi C.202, the production of this type was to be limited to only 252, but it was a flexible design that proved to be able to undertake a number of roles. The planes featured in this miniature series are the ones piloted by the Captain Umberto Cerretani and the Lieutenants Giacomo Metellini and Riccardo Vaccari. Here you can see the pictures of the 12 new airplanes ! Source : Wings of War, le site officiel
