1/48 H-21 Announced for 2015. I guess my Aurora and Special Hobby kits will find their way to a vendor table now. Italeri's helicopters are generally pretty decent (at least, compared to their 35th armour).

Will probably get one to do up in Red/White/Blue RCAF SAR / DEW line duty.

Italeri 1:35th PT Boat Conversion Kit (number 05617) - First Look by Michael BenolkinClick on html or thumbnail to view.
This looks nice for armour whiffery!! :-*


I have acquired two of those since I posted that link.  Yes, there are a number of nice items included.  I especially like the two versions of radar masts and the 20mm Oerlikon.  Just wish it would have been the later light weight mount instead of the original and very heavy mount used on the early ElCo boats.  My only complaint is that the price for this kit is quite high and if you can find it for less than the MSRP you should take advantage of that lower price.

This one has kind of flown under the radar but looks interesting:

Sherman M4A3E8…. Looks like a new suspension and turret added to the older M4A3. While I always like the Italeri Sherman kits, the A3 was kind so-so. Given that Dragon, Academy, Tasca/Asuka and Tamiya have all released E8s in recent years,  I'm not sure if another iteration is necessary but hey, why the heck not?

Looks nice! Two types of track is a nice touch.
Is there other "Fury" kits out there?

Italeri is re-releasing the B-66. Can build a B-66B or a RB-66B. It's a low part count kit

A good candidate for new engines. Winglets. All Glass cockpit.  :P
