1/35 KV-85 now available:
Unfortunately, according to the folks at Missing Lynx, Trumpeter used a JS2 turret rather than the distictive KV-85 turret. Damn, I've really been looking forward to this kit....

Unless things change between now and the release of the Vampire, Trumpy has made it too streamlined and pretty.   A ready made Whiff in the box!   I'd buy a dozen.  :)  ;D :-*

Dear Guys hello!!
Yes the A-3D skywarrior is coming up! I painted the boxart of it a few months ago so i knew it'll be released prety soon! I hope those guys at Trumpeter to create a good model!
Also the P-61B-2 Black widow ''lady in the dark'' 32nd scale, will be released soon which i also created it's boxart! I am sorry i do not know how to post images in the forum otherwise i would have done it! I am sure another guy can do it!
I think i'll have to find somebody to show me how to post pictures and other stuff cos sometimes i encounter some very nasty critic from other modelling sites where i answer to them with facts but i cannot send them my data cos....i do not know how!!!!                                         best wishes,  Kostas Kavvathias

There are multiple options for posting images.

You can attach them directly using the "Attacments and other options" section below the writing pane (just Click on the "Attach" area).

Alternatively, you can use a hosted image site such as photobucket or similar and then link in images.  There are some guides in the Forum Notices section.  This is the preferred means as it helps keep down on memory storage for the forum plus you can access the images for use on multiple forums should you wish to.

A bit pricey, but I plan on adding one to the stash.

I doubt it will, Trumpeter's trucks always seem to be ridiculously expensive when compared with their other kits.

Cheers!

Dear Elmayerle, thanks for the good words about my art!!
I was given the word that the kit will be of good detail and in different approach to ZM's model!
Let us wait and see!!

The Korakorum trainer is a nice little kit and was easy to build. I did one as an armed operational trainer for my Cartel airforce.

Scalemodels.ru has posted some pages of the Trumpeter and Hobby Boss catalogues for 2013/2014. LINK
They're  not the full catalogues (and mixed up to boot  :-X), but just the armour pages of both catalogues and some ship and 1/72 Easy Build aircraft pages of the Hobby Boss catalogue. A lot of stuff is therefore still missing.

EDIT: Yay! Trumpeter's following up the Italian 4x4 Puma with a 6x6 one!  :)

Scalemodels.ru has now posted more of the Trumpeter catalogue for 2013/2014. LINK Strangely enough, the ships are still missing. EDIT: Google tells me scalemodels.ru said something about this being "Part 1". END OF EDIT

1/48 gets more MiG-23s. And more MiG-21s, including the twin-stickers and some Chinese F-7 developments. Hope we'll see the J-7s downscaled to 1/72 some nice day.
1/72 mostly gets kits announced last year.  Plus a new family of Intruders/Prowlers.
1/144 is just the stuff announced for 2012. If we do actually get them this year, that'll be okay with me.

According to someone on ARC , there'll also be a J-15 (Chinese Su-33 Sea Flanker) with folding wings in 1/72 this year.  :D
