  1. Yeah, it will be rather large with those rotor blades, so much that I'd prefer a 1/48 kit. But, looking at all the nice detail there, I could see myself going for a Navy SH-60B/F or even better the HH-60H, as I'd expect they'll provide a folded rotor option.
  2. I guess that's a later AH-1W variant given those IR-suppressing exhausts. I'd prefer a Cold War one so I wonder if they'll provide the regular exhaust parts or follow it up with another boxing perhaps?
  3. Now that's interesting, I've been waiting for a 1/48 T-50 non-resin kit ever since HpH released theirs. There also seems to be the Su-25 there on the fourth photo, which is even more interesting for me. Edit: From the new KH catalog topic: - ref. KH80163 – Sukhoi Su-27SM "Flanker-B" link - ref. KH8016? – Sukhoi Su-27UB "Flanker-C" link - ref. KH801?? – Sukhoi Su-25 "Frogfoot-A" link - ref. KH801?? – Sukhoi Su-57 "Frazor" link
  4. Been waiting for this for quite a while given how long ago the MiG-27 nose was released. Finally!
  5. 1/48 J-20.. Finally. But, that's the prototype, I presume.. It's nice HB are doing a 1/48 U-2 and hopefully that one will end up better than what AFV Club did with theirs. But, on the whole, both Trumpy and HB are not having many new releases compared to the last two years, most of the new stuff is in the military vehicles category.
  6. That's great. I wanted to go for the same option (as the Pontos set looks amazing), but never found a good deal on the base Tamiya set.
  7. Hmm, could have sworn I've seen a mention of an upcoming Trumpeter Ticonderoga in 1/350, but there's nothing in the catalog.. And HB releases modern ships in 1/700 only so far. Perhaps it will go under the Merit brand (like the Kitty-Hawk class carriers, Wasp class LHD's, etc.)? It's cool they're releasing the 1S91 and P-40 radars, but it's crazy how they're releasing all of the S-300V launcher vehicle variants plus the engagement radar (with only the EWR, the acquisition radar and CP vehicles missing).
  8. Hmm, one thing that bothers me is the flat loader's hatch. It apparently was a T-55A thing, but their marking options are mostly all later from the '80s, but from the few photos I've checked (e.g. Soviet Naval T-55A's and Yugoslav T-55A's), I got the impression that the loader's hatch was updated with a cupola and the anti-aircraft machine gun was installed (apparently from 1969 during regular depot maintenance). Unless I missed them when checking the instruction scans and part sprues (I bought one, but don't have the kit at hand), it's really silly that these were not provided as options in their 63/65 kits. I see Blast Models have an upgrade set for Tamiya T-55's with various hatches for both the commander and loader. It would be great if they would make a new loader's cupola (like e.g. the base Tamiya T-55A has) and match it with their AA MG mount ring and perhaps include a DShk MG (or one could be gotten from the MiniArt MG set)..
  9. The base kit looks so toy-like that it's just a huge waste of PE and metal parts. I mean, I really want one modern Iowa class, but even the base Tamiya kit lacks detail by today's standards, IMHO, so I'm still waiting for Trumpeter to step in. Hmm, I guess this explains the kit detail level: it's from 1971. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/629666-revell-05129-u-s-s-new-jersey-bb-62-1982 On the other hand, I see Very Fire has a new kit of a Missouri in 1/350 and Joy Yard is doing an ever more detailed one. Hopefully, they'll make 80's versions as well.
  10. The company doesn't believe in the concept of providing any stores with their Viggen kits, apparently. No biggie as at least they managed to keep the prices of the kits rather low, plus, as the Viggen uses non-specific weapons, you can just reuse stores from other Western kits. Oh, wait..
  11. Err, not the same company , so why wouldn't they if they see a potential for sales?
  12. Did they ever mention the possibility of releasing a boxing of the initial F-15E variant?
  13. Well, in the October's Info Eduard magazine they announced corrected intake sets to be released in November (separate sets for MF and ML), so that's very welcome (I wish somebody made those in 1/32). Additionally, wheel bays for the ML are coming as well.
