New Ship Related Releases

Recommended Posts

If anyone is interested, I can recommend the recently released Shipcraft book on the Nelson + Rodney. If you are modelling either of these, it's well worth getting as an additional source of info. The line drawings and guide to modifications will help me modelling the Tamiya Rodney as she appeared in 1941, when she fought the Bismarck.

thanks

Mike

HI,

I don't know if anybody else has noticed this in the current POCKETBOND catalogue (page 63):- 1:35 63593 G-5 SOVIET MTB, I hope it does appear as the catalogue number is listed before the X-5 - 63504.

CHEERS

TONE

Some more news from Japan:

Pit Road leaflet: HERE.

First sign of a 1941/Pearl Harbor configuration USS Tennessee (Trumpeter kit reboxed for Japanese market) and another Japanese auxiliary, the food supply ship Irako.

I see that they're also releasing a JMSDF Asagiri class destroyer with a full hull option.

Mike. :)

Tamiya releasing 1/350 Kagero IJN destroyer in October.

Sounds like a re-pop of their Yukikaze from a few years back.

It also looks like the 1:350 Olympic is still on the cards.

Yes they are focusing on the ships that were sunk, as Aoshima have recently done the USS Wasp along with the Japanese Sub that sunk her, so expect Hermes to be sold with the IJN Carrier Air-group that sank her. Not that i'm complaing as it gives a rare RN Carrier and perhaps we may get the County Class cruisers as part of the same theme.

HMS Hermes will be most welcome and i'm looking forward to getting my hands on the USS Wasp. The Japanese Army Aircraft Carrier looks interesting too but I can't remember it's name offhand.

thanks
