Recommended Posts

Hopefully it'll be a new tool and not a reboxed Italeri!

 

Cheers,

No clues as to what version?


Off topic (and my Cyrillic is non existent) but do I also spot a Sherman in 1/35 on that list and a Tu-85 in 1/72?

It is Sherman, but in 1/72 it is a SU-85.

For me also S-400 missile system (Rus. C-400) in 1/72 is interesting, I hope for Turkish decals.

Ship in 1/350 seems to be Delta IV-class submarines (Project 667BDRM Delfin).

A newly tooled 1/72 Herc is much needed! Looking forward to this!🤩

Looking forward to seeing what version of the Hercules this will be, hopefully there'll be an RAF vairant in the works at some point! :)

Sure hope it is an E or H and not a J.

I agree. But... in the case of subjects in category "still operational" such as the Su-27 and MiG-29, Zvezda seem to have chosen to release the most recent variants first. I hope not.

 

Zvezda, if you're reading this: C-130E first, pretty please.

Hoping for a lot of things from Zvezda's Herky,especially the fuselage extension for the C-130H-30 and the correct fuselage shape.

C-130 E/H/K first please,......... the J can follow later! Looking forward to building an RAF Herk,...... be even better if there are optional parts for a stretched C.3 variant. Crikey the schemes for this kit will be ENDLESS!!!!!

 

Cheers Zvezda!

If Zvezda really are to produce a modern standard 1/72 Hercules then I am sure they will shift truckloads - a late 70’s early 80’s RAF version would top my list.

Whatever version Zvezda produce will be "the wrong version" .

Surely their obvious option is to go for an H-model, thus covering a wealth of markings opportunities as well as a plethora of variant possibilities? I understand the allegiance to the K-model but it wouldn't make commercial sense, given the limited potential it would present. Don't get me wrong, I am a Herc lover, but I think for the greater good the more popular machine has to take priority.

The Wild Geese is a great movie, it's in my must watch Christmas movie list! Had to google IAR, some nice Hercs.

An “H” is a license to print money.

If this turns out to be the benchmark for C130's in 72nd scale(we all hope) maybe a scaling down to 144th would not be out of the question? I can display more in the smaller scale than the larger and consequently would buy more than one . Given the huge variants and colour schemes I could make several without too much effort.
