Oh brilliant. I'd loved to have seen one in 1:350 but I'm certainly not complaining and will definitely be getting one. :yahoo:

That's great news! Hopefully they will be in the shops when I get out to China. May just have to bring one home!

I need something to balance up with my IJN Yamato in 1:200

I see Trumpeter are also doing the Abercrombie as well. No doubt it'll have the same faults as the Roberts kit: :thumbsdown:

Further down there's an image of a 1/700 USS West Virginia in fully rebuilt configuration:

Swap the turrets and alter the AA layouts and radars and that's the Tennessee and California wrapped up! :thumbsup2:

Interestingly enough, I see no sign of the 1/700 Malaya kit - that was originally slated for a December release, whilst the Valiant's been pulled forward from March to January. :hmmm:

1/200 Nelson ......gobsmacked !

1/200 WHAT is going on ? WHAT do they know we don't , or do they know anything ?

Why not 1/350 ??

Could someone else be doing one in 1/350 and they want to TRUMP them

OOO that was a bad pun

But 1/200 It will be bigger than the 1/200 Arizona i have i guess

I'm waiting for the Malaya and Valiant, to go with my Warspite and (WEM) Barham, problem is now that WEM have sadly gone, who will do the etch for the QE's? WEM were developing one using the Trumpeter Warspite but with parts for the others. Hopefully someone else will provide some etch.

As for the US BB's, I'm still waiting for the Colorado but I've always wanted one of the full rebuilds like West Virginia, luckily there's plenty of etch already available to cover the basics like the radars, cranes, catapults, ladders/railings for any US BB but again, with WEM gone it's now that bit harder to get hold of!

thanks

Mike

It'll be great to have HMS Belfast in 1/700 at last; I'm especially looking forward the latter-day refit version.

The Trumpy HMS Malaya looks nice at first glance. You even get a small amount of etch but sadly the cranes are moulded only in plastic and there's no radar ariels for the masts. Hopefully Tom's Modelworks will release the WEM set for the Trumpy WW2 QE class battleships as that was going to have specifc and generic parts for each ship.

thanks

Alaska class - nice. It's shaping up to be a very good year for plastic ship kits.

Oh gawd, that's a great selection of new 1/350 ships. The OSA2 is nice too, as is the 1/35 X-Craft.

Looked at the Trumpeter Aircraft catalogue section on the Facebook page and found it included the 1/200, 1/350 & 1/700 airctaft sets. Nowt new in 1/700, but in 1/360th they have listed the Swordfish, the Fulmar and the Skua might we be seeing a 1/350th HMS Ark Royal at some stage in 2015/16 ?
