All the fun of the fair! Okay, maybe not all the fun - you need to be there for that. But Jean-Luc gives us the next best thing with his detailed description of the new aircraft modelling items on show at this year's Nürnberg Toy Fair.

Once again Jean-Luc you have provided and excellent review! Many thanks! I noticed in your photos the company named "Admiral" releasing a 1/72 TBD Devastator. Did they have a test shot and if so, was it good?

Hi Johannes,

The Admiral kits were part of the AZ Model line up and sadly they only had their kits displayed on the German importer's booth. The Admiral people weren't there in fact so I'm afraid I can't give more infos. Maybe Steffen can be of better help (his friend Volker is more into 1:72 scale stuff).

Rowan, thank you for doing the editing for the article...
