2014/2015 Trumpeter, Hobby Boss and MRC/Merit catalogues


Recommended Posts

I saw these links posted on a thread about new plastic ship releases on the Ship Model Forum. They show the pages of new items in the 2014/2015 Trumpeter, Hobby Boss and Merit/MRD catalogues:

Some interesting stuff for everybody I think, if it's done well:

Trumpeter

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2804557302

Highlights - the same 1/24 scale stuff has been in preceding catalogues for ages but there are new aircraft items in 1/32, 1/48, and 1/72
1/32: Bf109G-6 (late), G-10, and K-4;
1/35: SA365N Dauphin and HH-65C Dolphin USCG; AS565 Panther; Chinese Z-9WA
1/48: J-8F Finback; MiG-23 MLD; J-7A; J-7G; MiG-21MF; MiG-21UM; various Skywarriors: TA-3B, EKA-3B, ERA-3B; T-38C Talon II; PLA JL-9; Cessna A-37A Dragonfly; Westland Whirlwind Mk.I; F-106A and F-106B Delta Dart; DeHavilland Hornet F.1, F.3, and Sea hornet NF.21; Su-7 and Su-11 Fishpot;
1/72: A-6 Series including the EA-6B; Be-6 Madge; MiG-19PM;
I'm skipping the armour because I don't know that much about it
1/200 Ship: USS Iowa; HMS Hood
1/350 Ship: HMS Montrose Type 23 frigate; HMS Roberts and HMS Abercrombie gun monitors; USS New York BB-34 and USS Texas BB-35


Hobby Boss

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2804569608

Highlights:
1/48 Aircraft: F4U-1 series; F4U-5 series; Embraer EMB314 Super Tucano; Bv 141; F4F-3S Wildcatfish (I think this may be a leftover from previous catalogues); P-61B and P-61C Black Widow; BAe Hawk 100 series and single seat 200 series (woohoo!); Ka27 Helix;

MRC/Merit

http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2804573205

Highlights:
1/48: H-34 and VH-34;
1/16: MRAP
1/18: Fw190A-5 and A-8;

1/18: AV-8B Harrier II
1/48: PT Boat - PT-596 and PT-109 (which coincidentally are the same boats as released by Italeri in 1/35)
1/18: UH-1 (looks like a B or C)
1/18: German Flak 36 88mm gun

Hi there

You missed this...1/18

Merit 1/18 AV-8B

I listed it, but put it on the same line as the 1/18 Fw190. It really does deserve its own line in my post.

That has the potential to be awesome! Never heard of that manufacturer before, anyone know their pedigree? I sort of assumed from the scale that I'd be RC rather than a typical kit...

Some interesting stuff in those catalogues !

My concern however is that many of these kits have been announced for years and are nowhere to be seen... which ones will actually apperar and which will not ?

Hobbyboss continue to list the FAV

Hopefully eventually it will actually be produced! They've listed it as "new" for about 5 years now

DH Hornets - nice.

But again no Tu-22 Blinder :-( Somehow I keep hopeing for years they might continue their 1-72 Russian Bombers. The ESCI kit could do with a decent replacement.

A 1-16 Harrier??? OMG. Sounds like an outside display ;-)

Sea hornet & Whirlwind for trumpeter are 100% purchased already

Ka-27 Helix, been wanting one of these for a while, as I think the 1/72 is a little too small for my collection

on the edge with the SA365N in 1/35, will pass judgement when I see the price.

Dragonfly will be interesting to see

They seem to design and co-operate on all the big stuff for Trumpeter. They have a selection of 1:18 scale aircraft which started off as pre-builts and are now being released as kits. I've just bought their 1:35 Diamond T tank transporter also being released by HobbyBoss, and their address is in California.

Thanks, by the time I can A) afford it and B) have room for it I'm sure it'll have been reviewed and no doubt pulled to pieces!!

Agreed!! The SU-9 & SU-11 ALMOST make up for it thought. They also forgot the Yak 25/Yak 28 series as well :weep: . The TU-22 has to be one of the best looking aircraft EVER - despite its problems. Here's one I made earlier. The old ESCI kit is still worth a go- especially as it's the only game in town!

Nice one Allan. I got the Revell boxing really cheap and a correction set as well (longer fuselage, wheels, tailplains and ejection seats) but there are still lots of problems - like the engine shape. Anyhow - someday I will build this.

Good grief. An Su-33 and an Su-33UB, in 1/72 scale :Tasty:.

Could not have imagined a mainstream injection manufacturer to have even thought about doing an Su-33UB/KUB/whatever. Maybe the Chinese Navy will be acquiring/manufacturing their own?

I do hope that Trumpeter produces both of these kits within the next two years, especially the twin seater as the thought of doing a 'cut and shut' job on the Italeri Su-33 and Su-34 kits...

That 1/18th Huey sounds great.. as does the Av-8B. Wish it was a Gr.9 though.... hmmmm, how easy to covert!?

..the Trumpeter PLA JL-9 also looks great & the F-106.
