New Kits from Clear Prop

Clear Prop is a new company from the Ukraine that has released its first 3 kits and has another kit in 2 scales coming soon.

Their products can be seen and purchased on their website: https://clearpropmodels.com and they have a Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Clearpropmodels/

They have an interesting idea about 3 different levels of complexity in their kits, a little like Eduard with their Weekend, Profipack etc boxings.
They came to the conclusion that for experienced modelers it is necessary to create kits which include all additional parts in order to create a model that will replicate the original as much as possible. Such kits have been called “EXPERT” and include plastic, resin, and PE parts. The other types of kits will be “ADVANCED” and “STARTER” options, which will remove the resin and PE which will allow for a lower cost of the kit for the consumer.

The first three models available are:
