new release from Deans marine
« on: 27 May 2021, 13:22:24 »
Hi Modellers
I thought that you might like an update from Farcet and to let you know what is new to the DEANS MARINE range.
On of the comments we have from modellers is that kits are getting more complex with more details such as laser cutting and brass etching, and more expensive, especially for the beginner.
We have taken this on board and have released a kit that contains a little of all of the above, but reduced in price and size. we hope this fills in a requirement for such a model.

M.T AGILE 11 Scale 1/72 Length 320mm Beam 115mm

First run release price £99.50
