The upcoming 1/72 C-130 appears to be an H model now.

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

It's ok, the pictures are in English.

I do so like some of their modern gear, especially gear like the Tracked Radar vehicles.

Plus the old Imai and similar back catalogue of ships like the Medieval Cog and the 17th Century ships

When a kit does come out, who'll be first to paint it as an X-32?  8)

While waiting for the Sukhoi kit to materialise, you could do an Italeri X-32 in Russian digital camo!  >:D

Is it just my imagination, or does that design appear to owe a lot to the X-32?

It's the intake that starts so far forward.
Had Sukhoi gone with side intakes, people would think it owed a lot to the X-35. With a bit of YF-23 because of the tail. So... *shrugs*.
I guess there's only so many ways to skin a cat. Especially when talking about supecruising stealthy single-engined cats carrying their armament internally that should still be able to dogfight (catfight?).

FWIW, I think Sukhoi owe a lot to me.  ;D Because this looks a lot like that single-engined YF-23 profile I did many moons ago.  :icon_beer:

It has been pointed out on SPF in the thread about this aircraft, that it resembles one of these

Zvezda news for 2022!
LINK! to their catalogue in .pdf on vkontakte.



Glorious cover art of an all-new Su-25   :icon_beer:  :icon_beer: :icon_beer: ........ in 1/48.  :icon_twisted:  :icon_twisted:  :icon_twisted: I guess Greg will be happy. So at least there's that. Really, really hope they'll eventually scale it down to 1/72. I could use a dozen.... or two. A 1/72 Frogfoot in 2021 Zvezda quality and Zvezda prices would be just.... :-*

After some quite careful, tentative steps over the years Zvezda now seem to fully embrace 1/48.
Yak-9D
Il-2M3 Shturmovik
Mi-35M - the place-holder picture shows a Mi-35M with the President-S countermeasures turrets - neat!

1/72 gets a snap-kit Yak-9D and another Hercules (C-130J this time). Looking forward to that Yak. Even as a snap-kit it should be really nice.


1/144 gets a 757-300 and an A321neo.

1/35 armour can look forward to a T-15 heavy APC with 57mm turret, a Taifun 4x4 with 30mm turret, a Kamaz dump truck and a Kamaz 4x4 racing truck.
WWII armour in 1/35 is to get a T-70 light tank, M4A2(76), a Dodge WC51 , an STZ-5 artillery tractor and a SiS-3 76mm field gun.

In 1/72, there will be a Maus, a Pantsir S-1 (cool!) and a T-72B3.

No new ships, it seems.

Want to stick the Kamaz racing decals on a Typhoon-K MRAP.  >:D For a more "robust" version of Paris-Dakar.
Really hope the Kamaz dump truck does well. Always good to have more civilian options in 1/35, whether you use them in military dioramas or as civilian stuff in its own right.
That's not a whole lot in 1/72 aircraft this year. And no signs of a MiG-29A 9.12 or MiG-29UB 9.51. :icon_crap:

That Zvezda did an all-new T-62 and UAZ 3909 minibus/truck in 1/35 in 2021 somehow passed me by.  :o

Moritz

The UAZ 3909 won't be released until Feb 2022 although there are a few for sale on ebay.
