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

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.

Now they have an FL-10 turret, I wonder how long before we see an AMX-13 light tank from Hobbyboss to replace the ancient Heller offering?  Once that happens it opens other possibilities in the AMX-13 family as well.

It'd be interesting but if I was running Hobbyboss, I'd make sure I'd fully exploited the moulding as much as possible - AMX-13/75, AMX-13/90, AMX-13/105, AMX-13 DCA, AMX-13 VTT, AMX-13 Mk61, etc., etc.  THEN, I'd start on the Kuraissier and that would lead into the Steyr APC series...   ;)

The Jumo 004 could move the exhaust "onion" forward or backwards (quite a bit) as form of a thrust adjustment; it was basically the first "variable exhaust" jet nozzle.

Here's some more kit details:











Kit is due out in August.

One interesting feature is the optional metal nose gear cabin – this also acts as a nose weight to stop this kit being a “tail sitter”.

2012-10 has the next variant of the 1/35 Panhard armoured car in form of the EBR-11 and, finally, the 1/72 Z-10 Chinese attack helicopter.

Dear Guys hello!!
My name is Kostas Kavvathias and i am one of the artists who work for Trumpeter-Hobby Boss model companies! i live and work in Corfu-Greece!
I did the box art for the Messerschmitt 262A-1B and just wanted to inform that the strange ''onions'' at the engines are the normal tail ends of the BMW 003 jet engine! The Me-262A-1b was an effort to check the performance of the aircraft with the BMW 003 engines, instead of the normal 004 Jumo ones! I suppose the other guy was joking about the ''onions''!!
i hope i was able to help a bit!
Besides that, i am glad to have a look at your very nice site, and if there is anything i can be able to contribute, i'll be glad to do it so!
Have a nice day, or night, and please keep up the good job!!

Dear Greg, and rest of the guys,
Thank you for the wellcoming and i will be glad to be able to help in any way i can!!
As far as i was able to find, the Me-262A-1b was just tested on a few trials on the ground with the 003 engines on! i was not able to find more info! I did the image based on the data given to me by Hobby boss guys! In a way, the Me-262A-1b box art is a ''what if'' status! According to another info blog, that particular airplane did also a few short flights! After all finding info about Luftwaffe in late 1945 is a massive pazzle!
Also thanks Greg for the kind words about my art! I have done 25 paintings for Trumpeter-Hobby Boss up to now, and included are the box art for the 48th scale Trumpeter Spitefull, Seafang, Mig-23M flogger b,
Sukchoi-25A and UB, F-117A nighthawk in 32nd scale, plus all the Messerchmitt262's, F-14's,F4U-4 Corsairs from Hobby Boss in 48th scale!
Please have a look at www.Kostaskavvathias.com for more!!
Thanks again for the wellcoming, and happy to be part of your nice effort in the Magic world of Modelling!!!
Best wishes!!

Dear Doom, TSRjoe, and elmayerle,
Thank you also for the kind words about my art!! I really apreciate that guys!
Ever since i was a child, the magic box art done by the masters Roy Huxley and Roy cross made me really to start doing modelling aircraft kits(mainly)! I propably would have never enter this magic world without those magic paintings on the kit! i feel really dissapointed to see Airfix using those computer images nowadays as their box top! They are good, no doubt, but they do not capsure the magic feelling felt back in those early days of modelling times!
Fortunatelly, the Japanese and Chinese model companies still use painted box art on their kits, and so, i was lucky enough to be able to collaborate with them!!
Dear Elmayerle, there is no problem to undertake a commision at all, and please do not worry about the payment! i usually charge 600 euros for a 60x80 cm images! Depending of course what you like to depict on the painting! The trouble is, i am very busy these days with those Chinese model companies! Thank you for the proposal anyway!
And to give you some news, well....suppose to be secret, i just finished the box art for the announced P-61B black Widow in 32nd scale! i do not know the exact date of release though!
Have a good modelling, and not only, day!!                                                Regards, kostas kavvathias

A Merkava ARV? Wow!  :icon_surprised: That's quite "out there" for a full kit from a mainstream manufacturer.  Wonder whether they'll also consider a Namer HAPC?

that Merk-3 ARV is of a limited-production type that is no longer in service -- both Legends & AEF did it in resin several yrs ago.

I fear a kit of the production Namer HAPC (Merk-4 chassis) will be several years away unfortunately :(

The handful of Merkava ARV conversions were just Mk 3 tanks without the turret. The Namer is a new design from the hull floor upwards. So much harder to make a scale model out of compared to the ARV. The only thing model wise that would be common between the Namer and Merkavas would be the tracks and suspension.

I know they're quite different.  ;) The good things is we're talking about Hobby Boss here. Take their CV90 family, for example. The way they set up the sprues in their kit of the CV90-40C with add-on armour, they'll only be able to use the tracks, suspension and some assorted bits'n'pieces for their upcoming CV90-40 kit. The hull and turret parts will have to be completely new. And if you look at Legend's conversion for the Merkava ARV, that's also a fairly involved affair. I reckon the Hobby Boss version will also come with a lot of new parts. Lots of new parts plus an extra new hull for the Namer don't seem that unlikely.
So, going from Hobby Boss' inclination to consider "out there"subjects and and their willingness to make "family" kits even when they don't have very much in common, I think they might consider a Namer. Well, at least I hope they might. :P

Another thing that I find interesting is that they even consider an ARV. The ARV variant was the only CV90 variant they apparently did NOT consider (at least according to their pattern maker's comment on Armorama). Hmmm, a Leo 2-based Büffel ARV? Come on, Hobby Boss, you know you want to....

There are some very nice armour kits being released in 35th scale, and I am sure I am not alone when saying this this, but wouldn't it be nice if there were more 1/72nd scale stuff coming out too. It seems to me that this scale is getting left behind as far as armour and military vehicles are concerned.

There are some differences, besides the engines. The tail looks a little different and so does the nose and canopy. I did a Google search for the Ki-201... and the images it returned ware of my Ki-201 (1/72 RS resin kit).

Hi all!!
I hope you are all doing well!!
Nice to see posted the new kit releases for October! I was commisioned to do the box art for the F-14D and the F4U-4 kits!
I am a bit grin to see that Hobby boss team changed the original VF-31 markings i did in the painting, with the VF-101 Cream reapers, shown on the box! VF-31 is one of my favourite SQNS! I am anxious to see how the box art looks on the box cover cos they changed using computer graphic programs!!
I hope you'll enjoy the new releases!!                                                              All the best,

Very few manufacturers are perfect. I like Hobbyboss kits and as I prefer to build for fun small accuracy issues don't lessen their good value for money and the fact they're readily available, so much for me.

dear Queeg,
i think you are more than right! I remember how easy and free times were back in the 80's when i was building kits strait from the box and not having so many worries about the shapes and accuracy! That of course does not means i did not tried to correct some very obvious mistakes, plus making sure my model to be as historical correct as possible! But, a lot of modellers nowadays are always with masses of data and rullers in their hands and trying to prove that this or that is 0,4mm wrong, and that green there is not the exact green used from Luftwaffe in November 12th 1943 at 13.00 hours!!!!!!!etc etc
I think a modeller should have moments of enjoyment and not frustration!!
Have a good modelling times!!!                                                           All the best, Kostas

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.

Lucky Model has just listed the HobbyBoss 1:350th scale USS Greenville (SSN-772) to their web page. 

Click on html or thumbnail image to view additional images of the kit contents at LuckyModel.



This will have to do until one of the modeling pages does a kit review. 

Based on what I see in the images this looks to be a rather nice scale up of the 1:700 scale Greeneville kit with a lot more detail.  The SDV is what makes this kit appealing and also a what if since the real SDV was destroyed in a fire and never returned to service.

HobbyBoss came out with a new 1/72 Dornier Pfeil and there's a build review up on Modeling Madness.

Despite the work of an incredibly skilled modeler, I can still see the wing/fuselage join which is a pitfall with most of their kits.

Still, I think HobbyBoss is great for quick builds and projects not requiring extensive mods.

Really? I'm not seeing it. Which picture? On the upper surfaces it looks like the natural wing join/panel line/reinforcement. On the underside, what I thought was a bad join is just the lower engine scoop.

Check the 2nd shot Frank. The exhaust staining brings out what looks like a curved step between the fuse and wings.

Not that anything I build comes out any better, but this seems to be common among HobbyBoss kits.

According to the "Trumpeter & Hobby Boss Fan Club" on Facebook (LINK), Hobby Boss will continue their CV 90 family:



They haven't posted which version they're gonna do. My guess is the upper hull in the pic will be for a Norwegian CV 9030N, due to the cupola for the section commander in the back and the heavier ribbing on the access hatches near the engine. The heavier ribbing isn't represent on Swiss and Finnish vehicles, the other operators of CV 90s with a cupola for the section commander. The Swiss and Finish vehicles also have a noticeable step for the raised troop compartment (as do the Danish and Dutch vehicles), while the Norwegian ones don't.
The lower hull could be for a Danish CV 9035DK. They use the same two large hatches for the troop compartment the Swedes use, but have a flexible periscope between the two hatches (the Swedish ones don't and the Swedes have the heavier ribbed access hatches). I don't think it's Dutch due to the raised access hatch to the left of the engine and the Dutch version's (again) different troop compartment roof.
Cheers,
Moritz

Glad to hear that "export" versions of the CV 90 are in the works. One of the nations in my "Whif World" uses the CV 90 but I've held off on buying a 9040 in hopes that we'd get a 9030 or 9035.

Maybe there will be a CV 90120 in the works at some point.

A bit of disappointment in seeing that the fuselage does not feature any kind of weapons bay.  Still nothing to be sad about as it is still cheaper than the Collectaire kit :)

Same images as the link above but larger now available for viewing at ARC discussion forums at this link: 1/48th Northrop YF-23 Black Widow by HobbyBoss - box art

Friendly warning: Ignore the slag-fest by the "experten (*NSFW)" in that thread.  Just appreciate the fact that we have a 1:48th scale injection molded polystyrene model kit of the Northrop F-23/YF-23 that should be more affordable than the slab of resin that was offered by Collectaire.  I can not understand these haters in that thread nor do I wish to.  I see plenty of potential for this kit with or without the faults that the sad little trolls are going on about.  Unlike some of the other HobbyBoss kits, I will endeavor to acquire at least two of these kits if not more as I have always preferred the shape and appearance of the Northrop F-23 over that of the Lockheed Martin F-22 [C]Raptor. 

Now if someone has any idea about what the external wing stores pylons look like for the F-23 it would be a good time to share that information.  In the interim, I am thinking that using the wing stores pylons from the F-18 might be a good stand in for this purpose.  The argument being that the F-18 was designed by Northrop.  So why not?

I'm thinking that LO is LO and they'd likely look like what's on the F-22 or F-35 in teh way of pylons.

thinking of doing a RF-23 with the front quarters of two TSSAM's mated together, back to back, and semi-submerged in the weapons bay.  You could even use the LO window applied to certain TSSAM variants for optical/IR use (scary thing is, 15 years later, I still remember the shape even though I didn't work on it directly).

I think Boomerang II would be apt given the first CAC Boomerang.  KittyHawkII would also be acceptable.

^ When they do the Super Tucano in 1/72, I'll buy half a dozen easily.  >:D Warts (inaccurate belly area) and all.

One thing I don't get is the bit that people needn't worry about the little mould line running across the canopies. Even if the Super Tucano didn't have a antenna or det cord there, you'd still get the mould line. The Super Tucano has a blown canopy and the toolmakers need to make a two part mould to allow for the undercuts. So, you either have an easy to remove mould line or an inaccurate canopy. Simples.

And the blown canopy is really obvious on this aircraft. A canopy from a single part mould would look just silly.

Apart from the spelling and the fact that the CV9035 is in Danish and Norwegian service, not Swedish although the Swids may have ordered them too for all I know. 

Something interesting is BAE are apparently going to offer a version of the Patria AMV with the CV9035 turret, called the AMV35 for the CRV (Cavalry Reconnaissance Vehicle) segment of the LAND 400 AFV recapitalisation.  This suggests that the CV9035 (or an solved derivative) is what they intend to offer for the IFV component.

I'm glad I didn't but an aftermarket kit to convert the Dragon kit. Toobad they didn't go the extra step and make an F-15 out of the C. Time to look up Logan's profiles!

On the armor side, lots of new inter-war kits, especially the Vickers and the Russian T-18/MS-1 variants; the Eastern Express kit is truly unbuildable. Looks like they're making a modern Panhard VBL as well.

1/35 South African Rooikat.


At first, I thought this was a cruel, late April Fool's joke...then I did a little searching.

Armorama has it listed as a Trumpeter kit, with a test shot: http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=22132

Also found this site: http://spruenews.blogspot.com/2016/04/trumpeter-rooikat.html

Needless to say, yes, I will be getting one of these. I love wheeled AFVs!


MOD EDIT: Fixed the first link!  ;)

Thanks!

So...who do I need to thank for buying the Baxmods or Aerografix Rooikat and starting on it?  That's the only possible explanation for this being kitted in plastic.

Australia bought a handful of Mediums pre war to build an armoured cadre, a thought is had the earlier plans actually progressed to motorise and mechanise the Australian Amy there could have been a licence production deal and evolved versions could have been used operationally in the panic of 1941/2.

Indeed. And if they hadn't blocked me from the FB comments page, I could have let them know about this. Seems they aren't very good at taking constructive criticism.

In-Box Kit Review of the HobbyBoss (kit nr. 82406) 1:35th scale "Delta Force" FAV (Fast Attack Vehicle) at Modellversium.de

Not much in the kit which means you have to supply all of the baggage and weapons/weapons mounts.

They really, finally released this one?  I'll have to keep on the lookout for one or two to add to the stash.
