The P-38 looks 1/72



It does, doesn't it, however looks can be deceiving shown amongst those bigger scales, it might be 1/48, looks like figures along side diorama wise? Good news for the 1/72 guys if it is.

Hope its a new variant 1/48 P-38 if that's what it is? but unless Tamiya are teasing us again, this is it for another year, quite underwhelming IMHO compared to Airfix's future schedule and surprise build up announcement recently.

Long Live Airfix :)

More I look at it and judge various scales, that is a new 1/48 P-38 we are getting, not what we all hoped for but happy with that ... I will buy it :)

I'm convinced that is a 1/48 P-38 now, it may not be new grey tool usual plastic release, just a repop of their older kit in Silver that makes a lot more sense, it really is hard to tell from that deliberate low quality image many of us have zoomed into.

Perhaps there is more to come yet :)

That looks official, thanks.

61123 1/48 Lockheed® P-38® J Lightning, numbering makes sense, yes please, first release was brilliant, this makes sense now

I see the pic is dated 2nd Feb, so if that’s it I would say it’s very underwhelming unless you are into 1/16 RC tanks. Looks like the Challenger is the only new tool in AFVs/Aircraft as surely the 1/48 Tiger and P38 must be modifications of existing tools.

And for those in any doubt still, last Tamiya 1/48 Aircraft was kit was 61122 Tomcat launch, I for one welcome the new Tamiya kit 61123 P-38 J Lightning very much, much more interesting schemes available.

To bad for 1/32 guys, was wanting a 109 too, maybe next year.

That Challenger is a nice surprise. Briefly wondered what they have lined up for missing number 32602 later in the year, but that code was the German infantry that came out late last year.

Only one new aircraft kit announced. Just a new - and expected - variant in 1/48th: - ref. 61123 - Lockheed P-38J Lightning

Dedicated Britmodeller/rumourmonger thread is here: link

★ This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit depicting the Lockheed P-38J Lightning, a WWII aircraft of which around 10,000 were manufactured.

★ The dynamic form is captured in style, complete with enlarged engine cowlings and radiator fairings.

★ Air ducts connecting engine underside intercoolers and oil coolers are a real treat and should not be missed.

★ Features an accurate rendering of the altered canopy with flat front face.

★ Comes with three marking options, plus masking stickers to aid with painting of the canopy, a background information text on the P-38J, and a full color painting guide.

If I am being brutally honest, a P-38 variant that we all knew was on the cards at some point given the two previous P-38 releases, is a bit of a disappointment...I know its a beautiful kit and I may indulge in the -F release sometime, but I was hoping for something genuinely new (and larger!)

1/43 Farley Fruitbat Mk. XVILSVX. In typical Tamiya fashion, they release the less popular version first - we won't see the most built version, the XMLIX, until MMXXXXVIII. 

 

All boxings will include PE for the upper wing railings, whine glasses, pitchforks and menus, while the tables and chicken coops will be cast in resin. In addition, all boxings will include a packet of:

Inflatable tyres are also included, for those who don't like vinyl. 

 

 

 

...and so we wait another year.......

Given Tamiya's track record in the past, not necessarily so. Yes we have a few 1/48 kits that offer multiple version options, however there are many others that have been left behind.

I am quite disappointed.  I had high hopes for a new 1/72 warbird or jet....  Oh well, there is always next year.

These are the releases that would have been shown at Nuremberg Toy Fair according to their blog. Tamiya and many other Japanese manufacturers usually have major releases at the Japanese International Toy Fair in Tokyo in June.

Having built the P38 G/H kit, my favorite kit and the most fun build ever...  I cant wait for this new J!

 

This is early 2022 release...  I hope there will still be another NEW 1/48 kit announced tomorrow!

:phew:  At least I don’t have the angst of looking at a 1/32 P-38 early and turning to my Trumpeter P-38 with backdate sets etc knowing however good a job I hack out there the out of box Tamiya would beat it hands down and be an easier build. 
 

Always look on the bright side of life :whistle:

Is TamiyaBlog affiliated with Tamiya? Given the effort they've gone to to build anticipation and countdown clocks, seems odd to release the info on the side the night before?

Airfix did a similar thing this year.
