Here's an interesting one: a French GCT SPG turret on an T-72 chassis:

D'oh... I posted this already in the Trumpeter section, forgetting we had a HB thread here.

Anyhoo, Leopard 2A4M CAN:

That is sweet! I've been hoping for a Leo 2A4M since I saw the versions used by Canada and Singapore a while back.

The 1/48 crowd can also look forward to some BiG MiGs in 2015!

What's that on the left? Saab Lansen?

Some new releases by HobbyBoss

These two are of particular interest to me:

1/35 Hungarian 44M TAS:



1/48 Ka-27 Helix:



I wonder if we can expect a 1/48 Ka-29 in the future (fingers crossed) - after all, they have already done it in 1/72.

All hail the God of Frustration!!!

And if they do a Ka-29, might we also see a Ka-31 with the AEW fit?

1/35 Hungarian 44M TAS?  I wonder where they got the drawings for that?  Only one built and it was destroyed along with the factory and the design office when it was bombed...  Interesting design though.  I could see the twin engines being replaced with something more powerful ASAP.

Better test shot of the 2A4M CAN on their FB page. Also a French VBL 4x4 in the works. Will post pic here when I get home if nobody else has by then.
