FANS OF TINTIN START COLLECTING HERE: FINELY ENGINEERED 1:43 SCALE DIECAST VEHICLES BASED ON ART IN THE ORIGINAL BOOKS

Watch Captain America and Black Widow infiltrate an ocean liner, taken over by the dreaded Batroc in this special extended, four-minute look at Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier due for release on April 4, 2014.
We mentioned the Fantastic Plastic 1:1400 scale Helicarrier kit last week, and this clip gives you an idea of what else is in the movie. As big fans for the first Captain America release, this one seems a little less exotic, but will doubtless manage to be an action-stunner, worthy of an evening's popcorn-chomping.
And then there is the tasty Fantastic Plastic 1:72 scale S.H.I.E.L.D. Quinjet to model. Visit here to have a look.
