    A new company, Ibex, have released their first injection moulded kit, a Raytheon/Hawker Beechcraft T-6A Texan II, in 1/48th scale, priced at around £25 in the UK.
    Ibex are an Israeli company, and a subsidiary of Isradecals.
    The kit includes injection moulded main components, resin ejector seats and other small bits, vac- form canopies, and decals for a US and Israeli aircraft. Photos on their web-site show the parts, which look cleanly moulded.
    The Texan II is based on the Pilatus PC-9, and is used by the US, Israel, Greece, Germany and the RCAF (as the Harvard II in the latter service.), and is very similar in appearance to the Embraer Tucano.
