Bachman Europe announces three new product launches

Three new products are joining the Bachman Europe offering, with two available now and the third slated for Spring 2022.

Following the success of the Toyway 1:12 scale MK1 Chopper bike models, Bachmann Europe has released new Chopper & Hopper Rider figures. Designed specifically for use with the Toyway Chopper Mk1 bike, these 1:12 scale figures make it possible to create a beautiful retro scene when combined with the vintage Chopper models.

The pack of two fully finished figures are authentically dressed, with 1970s outfits making them the perfect partners for the Toyway diecast bikes. With a Recommend Retail Price of £29.95, this pack of two figures is available now from Bachmann Europe stockists.

Bachmann Europe has also launched a highly detailed low relief model depicting a Cold War Hardened Aircraft Shelter (HAS). The model is based on those structures found at former Royal Air Force (RAF) Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire, UK, where they remain today as protected scheduled monuments of national and international importance.

HASs can still be seen on both active and former RAF airbases including Coningsby, Lossiemouth, Marham, Honington, Leeming, St Mawgan, Lakenheath, Alconbury and Bentwaters. Structures can also be found at MoD Boscombe Down and at other sites across Europe.

The Low Relief Hardened Aircraft Shelter is supplied assembled and pre-painted. Modelled in 1:72 scale, it is the perfect backdrop on which to display cherished diecast 1:72 scale aircraft models, such as those made by the likes of Aviation 72 or the highly detailed Easy Model plastic aircraft, both of which are distributed by Bachmann Europe.

The models are in stock now, ready to be despatched to Bachmann stockists and has a Recommended Retail Price of £119.95.

Finally, following its grand unveiling at the recent IPMS Show in Telford, Bachmann Europe today confirmed details of the new HK Models 1:32 scale plastic kit of the Avro Lancaster B Mk1 Special ‘Grand Slam’ (Item No. PKHK01E38).

The kit includes markings for PD119/YZ-J, 617 Squadron, Woodhall Spa, England April 1945. With a Recommended Retail Price of £409.99, this kit is due to arrive in February/March 2022 and can be ordered from Bachmann Europe stockists.
