    Anyone heard of Creative Models?
    I've just seen an ad on the Model Zone web-site, for a couple of kits under this brand name, which I can't say I've heard of. One of the kits is a 1/32nd scale Spitfire MkVb - just wondering if it's a new brand, or someone else's kit under a different label?

    I know them as importers and distributors in the UK market.
    The box art looks like the Hobby Boss offering to me. I suspect it is a re-box.

    Thanks Steve, I had a feeling that might be the case. I found CM as importers/distributors, but not as a label.

    In a very disingenuous way. It could be read to imply that Creative Models have improved the wings but that is NOT the case. I'm sure it is just the Hobby Boss kit. Hobby Boss' own blurb on this kit also refers to newly tooled wings. Infact a check of the HB website shows that Creative Models have broadly copied the HB text and image.
    Cheers
