    Just noticed a lot of Twin Beech/UC-45 in 1/48 from a company I've never heard, Mach 2, on E-Bay.
    Does anybody know if this is the Battleaxe molds?

    Think it might be a 'new' one, announced at a show in the US about 6 months(?) ago. Not sure though - but seen some ads for it, and it seemed a bit pricey. Maybe why they're on e-bay, as I think it's limited run. Don't know of any other in this scale.

    Squadron has it listed for $83.69, youch!!!, and it is stated in the description that it is the Battle-Axe mold.

    Thanks bob just discovered that today myself. From what I've read that kit is a train wreck but I still want a Beech 18 on my shelf. Can't believe that one of the most-produced airplanes in U.S. history is still not available in 1/48.
