MS Mercantic Crew Edition upgrade


Billing Boats’ 1:50 scale kit for the freighter MS Mercantic (Ref. BB424), originally introduced into the range back in 1964, has now been completely updated, taking advantage of the very latest in production technology, including the use of laser-cuts parts. To celebrate this upgrade, a limited edition first batch of just 300 kits (orders are now being taken) known as the ‘Crew Edition’ will include a complementary blue beanie with Mercantic insignia – although thanks to the generosity of the Billing Boats’ crew, you will have the chance to win one of these snug and stylish hats, together with an Excel Deluxe Ship Modellers Tool Set in next month’s issue – see page 74. We will be bringing you more on this kit, including a full build review guide, in a future issue.
