We've hit Day 7 of the '10 Days of Shiny' and we've got a big one from Minibits today!

We are extremely pleased to announce that we are now stocking the full 1:285th Raiden Miniatures aircraft ranges, now owned by I-94 Enterprises in the States.  These extensive ranges cover both WWII and Post War with almost 180 aircraft available in this initial release.  Whilst obviously aimed at the 6mm gamers out there, these may also interest some of our 10mm players as well, giving some options for those Off-Table Support units in Blitzkrieg Commander and Cold War Commander.  15mm Flames of War uses 10mm aircraft so no reason why 10mm BKC can't use 6mm aircraft!

We don't currently stock any flight stands for these but we'll be sourcing some asap and adding them to the site.  I-94 were also waiting on a restock of some codes so we'll be adding those as well over the coming months.

We won't list out the full 178 products, but here's a quick overview of what's available:

WWII - http://www.minibits.net/raiden-aircraft/wwii/
- American
- Dutch
- British
- French
- German
- Italian
- Japanese
- Russian

Post War - http://www.minibits.net/raiden-aircraft/post-war/
- American
- British
- Canadian
- French
- Russian
- Swedish


And some pics:


























Day 8 will see a few scenery items for Pendraken, to complement a recent range release...

Those Raiden Spitfires etc are VERY shiny......but I can hear Mrs Shy's voice saying "move along, these are not the miniatures you are after..."  Smiley

I'm hardly a 'connasewer' of planes....But I remember having a 'Lightning' (Corgi or Dinky ?) in my childhood.

Was the MiG-19 a 'rip-off' of that particular design ? Undecided

I think there was just a lot of similar designs at that period - Thunderbird 1.

To whom it may concern...

You've got RAI-GBR018 Westland Whirlwing incorrectly labelled.  It should of course be Westland Whirlwind.

Some of those are very tempting, will have to compare the costs of getting them from the US vs UK  :-

It's a tricky one with the exchange rates fluctuating so much these days, but I think the US would be slightly cheaper for you at the moment, even with the VAT removed from our prices.  

I'm going to keep an eye on the rates and adjust the pricing on these as we go.  I've had to pitch them at almost like-for-like initially, it was around $1.20 to the £1 when I bought them, but with the shipping and import fees added on, it cancels out the currency adjustment.

You've got RAI-GBR018 Westland Whirlwing incorrectly labelled.  It should of course be Westland Whirlwind.

Bah, I knew there'd be one in there somewhere!  I'll get that fixed straightaway.
