I think Mike told me that the 2019 list all but the same as that of 2017. I shall not be holding my breath for anything new.

Nowadays I tend to wait until test pics appear before overly anticipating a new release. Until there's something concrete then these announcements are essentially the hobby industry's equivalent of 'vapourware.'

I would agree Mike. In 1/700, I'm only interested in British destroyers so their isn't much to interest me.

On another note Mike, can I make a Group II T Class Sub from you Group III with a little modification?

 

Stuart

It would be difficult I think, there are quite a lot of differences.

Most of the kits in the new list were announced two years ago, some have obviously progressed but so far Flyhawk have tended to release 1 or 2 entirely new kits a year, by which I don't mean variations on something previously released.  My point really is that it if they keep to that schedule, it is going to be some time before most of these are released.

 

By the way, the 1/350 Prince of Wales is expected for release in three years, so 2021....

IHP 1/700 HMS Colossus Class light fleet carrier

 

Imperial Hobby Production have formally announced their first new 1/700 injection moulded kit - the Royal Navy Colossus class light fleet carrier from the 1940's.

 

Starling models will certainly be stocking these kits when they are released later in the year

I've been having a think about Trumpeter's new Royal Navy ship announcements and I think they must be using Profile Morskie plans during the kit design process.

 

The 1/350 Calcutta, Colombo, Cornwall, Kent, 1939 Exeter, York, Naiad and Argonaut all correlate with PM plans whilst the Scylla was the subject of one of their print monographs prior to them going digital only.

Well, you can always go for the 1/200 Trumpeter Titanic; only $399 US approximately, 357 Euros, or, 305 GBP. It is a little out of my league pricewise, and definitely way out of any acceptance of the wife's. Oh well!😭

Mikromir are working on two 1/350 versions of the USS Parche special ops submarine, short and stretched, the renders look impressive.

There is a third US nuclear sub in the offing but no details yet.

Also seen renderings for a Japanese Target A/D mini sub in 1/35, yummy!!

 

All the best Chris

Damn! I didn't find that lower section when doing my research - I had very little to go on.

 

I'll just have to get the MM kit when it comes out.
