I thought I could be of some help so I contacted an F3A friend in Japan. He believes that is an older model and will be discontinued soon, replaced by the current "Value" model. He says Nishioka is about 70 years old now and not selling much product and probably will retire soon. His products were very good but pretty expensive years ago when there were Japanese modelers willing to spend big bucks for pattern planes [according to him as much as a million yen back in the day]. I really don't know if all this is accurate but he's usually well versed on such things. It's a "current looking design" so who knows what's correct. Possibly it's replacing the Value model, LOL.

I haven't seen that one before. The Value has been around for a little while now.

The Value is the only plane in the products list and only other planes mentioned are parts for the Success, Status and Professor, which are older designs.

Maybe this is the new biplane?

Hello

It is not a recent plane, I knew this biplane under the name B15
These attached photos date from 2018.

The B15 you posted above looks very similar to the new Sodalith, especially the canopy shape and placement
