On a previous site, I used to post news of new models I had found on the 'net. If there is enough interest, I'd like to do the same here. It's not an exhaustive search, I don't look at the really big makers - Dragon, Tamiya etc, but on the more 'obscure' or unpopular makers and those models that interest me. All pictures I post will be either from the Makers' website, or Facebook page
Some new models, both available and coming, from one of my favourite makers - ICM

I particularly like these 1/35 WWI models

Something different from ICM, their 1/16 models have been soldiers/ceremonial guards - from Game of Thrones
icm night king 1-16.jpg
From Bronco - the forerunner of the Duster bronco m19a1.jpg
and from IBG the TKS tankette, there are 3 boxings, one base model with 'quick build' tracks, another the same but with glue, paintbrush & Hataka paints, the third boxing has a metal barrel, 2 figures and doesn' have the quick tracks ibg tankette.jpg
Please feel free to post your own finds, bur please only post pics from the makers sites, or Facebook pages, and credit them.
Thanks for looking in - feedback will be appreciated

Dave .
Great idea of yours to do his thread again on here.:thumb2:
Certainly like the Colt tractor, same tracks as the S65 , as Colt helped set up the factory. It's interesting to note that the design of these tracks has never changed, the designer's got it right the first time .
Quite like ICM, always something different coming from them .

The Roden Holt is VERY expensive - around £50 - a bit rich for my liking!
I'm gratified to see the number of visits, and likes - please add any of your own finds, especially in areas that I don't have much interest - braille scale, sci-fi!

John,
I'm afraid I was a bit lazy in my search! I generally look at the Lowestoft site for a baseline UK price, and go from there, but not today. I can assure you that SMS is on my search list...............

From the Zvezda Facebook page - 'on sale in July'
New Tooling : Su-100 in 1/35 zvezda su-100.jpg
Updated (?) Terminator in 1/35 zvezda terminator.jpg
Even though it's 1/144 the Mainstay will look striking zvezda mainstay.jpg

Over on PMMS.
MasterClub are releasing individual track links for the M4 Sherman of various types.
Including assembly jig and end- connectors which insert into the links.
These could be a real Godsend. Picture borrowed from Terry Ashley's PMMS. 35122.jpg

I may just want to buy myself a set of those to replace the AFV Club Sherman tracks I’m decidedly unimpressed by.

On the Trumpeter/HB Facebook page - Trial assembly of their 1/35 M911 Tractor & M747 semi trailer - and NO, I don't think you get 2 tractor units HB Tractor & semi.jpg

Now that's a beast! You'll need a big shelf to display that.......

Heh … I once converted a Tamiya Universal Carrier to that version. I suspect this one will be better than my efforts.
