Hobby Boss news for 2012 from their catalogue! CLICKY!

Personally, I'm looking forward to the WZ-10, Delta Force FAV and the Panhard EBR. Really diggin' the Panhard EBR. Awesome left-field choice there. Not giving up my hope for Hobby Boss or Trumpeter to do some 1/35 South African stuff just yet.
Cheers,
Moritz

I am with you on the EBR...here's hoping the 1/48 Su-27 leads to a Su-32/34.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Looking forward to the Z-10 and Hoplites in 72nd.  Another brave choice in 32nd too with a Black Widow.

I hope their FAV actually makes it unlike Dragon's attempt.

Once again, very happy with their 35th offerings.

<...> here's hoping the 1/48 Su-27 leads to a Su-32/34.

About the only chance, I'd say. A conversion set would be fantastically expensive. All you could re-use of any given kit would be the wings and fins.

Must have that EBR 10. Never thought anyone but Heller would make French cold war armor. :D

^ Sure hope they'll scale that one down to 1/72. Lots of whiffing options!  :)

I've considered buying one of those a few times - I just wish they would hurry up with the other variants such as the 35mm gun or 120mm gunned variants.

Looks like a decent kit at a moderate price and it certainly looks much better than the old Monogram kit.

Looks like a corker of a kit.  Seems like a bumper year for things that we wouldn't have expected in styrene.
