News – 2012 Italeri Survey

In recent years, Italeri has produced more helicopter kits in 1/48th than any other kit manufacturers.  For the upcoming year, Italeri is doing another customer survey.  The instructions for the survey are located at

Basically, you are requested to send an e-mail to, and answer the following questions:

  1. What are your favorite three products in the 2011 Italeri catalogue?
  2. What are the top 3 models that you would like Italeri to produce in the near future?
  3. What former kits (presumably from Italeri) not produced in years, that you would like to see produced again?

Since an example is worth a million words, here is a copy of the e-mail I sent Italeri for the survey:
