The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

They said it would never last, but large scale is more popular than ever.

Every year, we here about the impending demise of large scale models. With Tamiya taking a break on them, and Hasegawa slow rolling new releases…

But this year alone:

Revell Hurricane llb    
ICM CH-54 Tarhe.   
HKM A-20 Havoc/Boston.   
Infinity Aichi D3A1.   
GWH Tomahawk.    
Airfix Spitfire   
Lukgraph Westland Wapiti

And that’s just aircraft off the top of my head.  Plus 1/16 armor coming out the ying  yang.  Yep, I’m happy.

But hey, something’s got to go sideways.  Maybe Border will announce all future aircraft kits in 1/35, and all future helicopters in 1/32. 😂

For the life of me, I cannot believe Ernie left off the biggest granddaddy of them all, the Devastator.   I know, it’s still vaporware until it’s in your paws…

But Trumpeter also came out with the F-35A this year and the B is on the way.  They did the C late last year.  
Also….Kotare Spitfire Mk.Ia

I have noticed a slowing trend in aftermarket for 1/32. Caracal has gotten out of 1/32 decals and I think Two Bobs did as well, but cannot verify.   I think Ernie posted the other day that it seems Eastern Europe is picking up the pace on a lot of new aftermarket.

There's also the ZM FW190 A something something coming out. 

Also Italeri has announced a 1/12 Lancia Stratos which is a must have for me. 

Round2 has a 1/32 TiE Fighter coming this summer and a 1/24 N-1 starfighter too.:sofa:

I’m hoping ZMs 190 is the short nose. We have decent A-7s and 8’s, but we need an A-4

It is … first 2 scheduled releases are the A-4 and A-3 …

First release (2nd half of year) is a special edition of the A-4 … I have 2 on preorder 😍

Comes with the territory Brother just point to her shoes and handbags.;)

LOL that you think it works that way. 
 

As my wife puts it, “I use my shoes and handbags.  You have 300 kits you haven’t used yet, but yet you want another?   You will have to live to 287 yo to build what you have now.”

They just don’t understand logic.

Well, my ex-wife had a few dozens pairs of shoes she never wore, and many pieces of garments with the shop price-tag still on …

But she did not like my modelling anyway …
