<...> Quite interesting that the HARM, SLAM, etc are provided. <...>


The SLAM and HARM are only there because they're on the same sprue as the GBU-10. The whole sprue is from one of their 1/32 weapons sets (LINK). At least they don't make you buy heaps of unnecessary ordnance as in their Su-25s and MiG-23s.
One thing I'll never understand is Trumpeter's obsession with highly-detailed engines -  that nobody is ever going to see!  ???

Reminds me of the Minicraft (Academy) 1/48th scale F-117 kit that was issued many years ago that included of all things a pair of AIM-7 Sparrow air to air missiles in addition to a rather decent pair of laser guided bombs.  That was back when much was still not known about what the aircraft was cleared to carry.  I still prefer the Testors F-117 with the B61 nuclear bomb shapes.

Re:  MiG-23. 
I ran both the CPI numbers and the Rule of 72 on what I paid in todays money for the Italeri MiG-27 in 1982.
Suffice to say the least the new issue kit is no more expensive and will be a sight better than what thrilled me back in those days.    :)

Never thought I'd see the Drakon as anything other than a resin conversion.  Kudos to Trumpeter.

Wow! An Italian Puma 4x4 AFV in 1/35!  :icon_surprised: Didn't see that one coming! Way to go, Trumpeter!  :) Hope they'll also do the 6x6 version.



Also, a 1/48 Supermarine Attacker F.1!



These two are from their 2012-08 Update (LINK!), which also says there will be an individual track link set for their E-100 series. Awesome, as the rubber band tracks in that one were a bit of a let-down.

Mentioned in their 2012-06 Update (LINK!) is the 1/48 MiG-23M Flogger-B!



Cheers,
Moritz
