a 1/72 scale kit has been released of this important amphibian, the Beriev
Be-12 - Nato code name 'Mail' - by manufacturers RVHP. It is a highly detailed resin and
white metal state-of-the-art kit, which albeit expensive at £120.00 (from
Hannants, is well worth the purchase to a serious flying boat
modeler - like me! - I got one for my recent birthday!!) It is absolutely gorgeous
and will repay careful building. Here are some reference pictures which I
have been sent by our many correspondents around the World.
