I would not normally cover an aircraft model here but I believe this model in the works from Bronco Models is an exception. This model is of a German Invasion Glider DFS-230 B-1 with Paratroopers (Operation Eiche).
It would seem Bronco Models has acquired a taste for large plastic model kits coming on the tail of a 1/35th scale submarine they announce a 1/35th scale glider in the works in 1/35th scale and supplied with paratroopers from Dragon Models. I have no idea what the wing span of this one will be but I am sure it will take up quite some room, but what a model to have in a diorama.

Didn't expect this. Looking forward to seeing Masterbox's Horsa Glider.

Another great announcement from Bronco. Just wondering if the Paras will be their own (new) moulding or cooperation with DML? If it's the former, then that is even better news as they'll release them seperately... Win/Win?

Wow, it's not often that new releases catch my eye but this is verrrrrrrry tempting. Crete, Eban-Emael, the Dutch bridges, Gran Sasso .... oh my!

@jimbrae: Cause this is the box art of the Dragon paras I bet that the old kit will be included...
