Well not really... AFAIK ICM didn't announce an A-26K.

I wouldn’t worry too much about not hearing about progress on this kit.  Previous Xuntong/Bobcat kits have been announced then pop up much later.  I get the feeling they operate under radio silence.  Their recent Firebar/Brewer and Beagle kits popped up after long periods without an update.

 

As to other things they might be working on, they at one point announced a Tupolev SB-2, which would be cool.

 

 The Counter Invader would probably sell better though.

Tupolev SB-2 is reported nearly ready and coming soon for years now...
