New Brighton, Minn. (PRWEB) October 17, 2008
Historic Sales, a leading distributor of military history, aviation and railroad products to the hobby industry, is pleased to introduce SkyMax Models®, a new, value-priced line of high quality die cast aircraft.
"We are honored and delighted to represent this new product line," said Rick Apple, chief executive at Historic Sales. "As a distributor of all major die cast aircraft brands, we have seen a wide range of products, and SkyMax's combination of top quality and value pricing give it an exceptionally compelling story. It is rare," Apple continued, "to see such quality and historical accuracy in products priced comparably to entry-level competitors."
The first SkyMax Models aircraft are available for immediate pre-ordering from Historic Sales, which will be SkyMax Models' exclusive North American distributor, and are scheduled to ship in time for the 2008 holiday shopping season with a suggested retail price of $31.45 and a likely street price of less than $30. Those initial products will be of the United States' F8F Bearcat, a post-World War II Navy fighter, and will be followed in early 2009 by models of the La-5, a Soviet-built World War II fighter, and by an O-1 Bird Dog, a U.S. observation and control aircraft employed in the Vietnam War. All of these initial aircraft will be manufactured in the industry-standard 1/72 scale for seamless integration into consumers' existing collections.
