Guys

 

Just saw in the latest Riich catalogue their first 1/32 scale aircraft, 1-16 type 10 in Chinese Nationalist markings.

 

Does anyone know if its all new, or a re-box of the Special Hobby version?

Never heard of them before now.  Judging by the products offered on their website it is no wonder.  Looks like they are predominately into armor and support vehicles.  Very little emphasis on aircraft.

I believe they are a relativley new Chinese company; up till now yes armor and support vehicles/accesories.  Like I said, first I have heard of them doing an aircraft kit.

Yup, relatively new. A few armor items; I have a couple. Not bad. Will be curious to see how they do with the aircraft.

So far they have a 1/200 Kingfisher on a catapult under their belt, so there's that.

Their AFVs models are quite nice. So I hope their I-16 will be OK. I forgot that announced release. In spite of the quality of the ICM one, this option has more appeal to me as you can build more easily a Chinese or Spanish one...

Be interesting to see how it stacks up to the ICM kit. Generally the Riich armor kits like their Universal Carrier have been very detailed and good on accuracy.

If it's as good as the ICM kit we're in for a treat.

Riich has released a very favorably received Tiger I with full interior. VERY nice detail. A type 10 polikarpov might be interesting. If they release it, I'll find it odd to have now three companies doing the stubby little plane.


in progress:

 1/32 Hase Me-109G2/R6
1/35 Su-85/ winter- attach to base
1/32 DH-9a USMC- Delivered to Flying Leathernecks Museum, MCAS Miramar
1/32 Mig-3:winter paint and weathering: in progress and base
Yacht America need some parts.

I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place...
Yes, I built models when I was a kid too.... no they're not toys....

Mike, I could be wrong, but I believe you're confusing them with another manufacturer. I believe TAKOM has released a Tiger II. The only kit I know of with a full interior for the first Tiger is the ancient and execrable Academy kit.

Rye Field Model (RFM) released the other Tiger 1 with interior.

Yes, Academy and Rye Field make the only Tigers with interiors at the 1/35 level.

Riich's armor is pretty minimal; they make a lot of horse-drawn stuff though.
