Their sf stuff is, but a lot of the rest of their stuff isn't.  There are some useful items shown.  I definitely have a use in mind for that 1/48 late-model MiG-21 update set.

Black Dog has some new products available in a variety of scales:

Link to the page listing 1:700 scale accessories for ship modelers

According to PMMS, Black Dog has announced several new female figures in 1:35th scale.  Sadly, these figures were not found on the what's new page at Black Dog.  :(
However, for those interested in this item, these are listed as:

Israeli Woman Soldier No1 (F35089)
Israeli Woman Soldier No2 (F35090)
Israeli Woman Soldier Set (F35091) (contains both No1 and No2 figures as a set)

Israeli Weapons TAR-21 TAVOR (F35092) contains six types of TAR-21 TAVOR rifles outfitted with a variety of optics and other accessories such as sound suppressors and grenade launchers. 

The other items that might be of interest to our UK modelers is the FN-FAL + Backpacks Falkland War (F35093) which contains the following major items:

2 X Bergen style rucksacks with sleeping pad
2 X Bergen style rucksacks with sleeping pad and M72 LAW
2X FN-FAL with iron sights
2X FN-FAL with telescopic sight
2X FN-FAL with CQB combat optics
2X M72 LAW
4X Large pouches
4X Small pouches
4X Canteens 

Hopefully Black Dog will update their web page soon to show these new items.

Their Israeli M113 with the 60mm HVSS turret is interesting!

Comes as no surprise Greg, it is a 1:72nd scale kit :) 

Verlinden used to offer that turret as a resin conversion with some PE bits but I am unsure if it is still in production at this time.  I used to have a two of the things myself but lost interest in IDF things and disposed of them to Zod a couple of years back.

That turret would be nice on a Sheridan, scorpion or LAV

A bit small for a Sheridan but Scorpion or LAV would be a good match

The M113 HVMS is here, about 3/4 of the way down (and yes, it's in the One True Scale..... ;))

Love the nitpicking comments from Trisaw, he's looking at photos of the smaller Flyer 60 and
stating that the Black Dog kit of the Flyer 72 doesn't look right.
Well, duh.  :-\
