After quite a few days with no spots on Facebook, or on makers websites, this has appeared on the Meng Facebook page..........................

The Xmas Edition! Has an extra 1/35 figure of President Trump. He has the choice of 2 heads, one the iconic quiff, and the other a Santa hat!

Bemused by Meng producing this! I shall refrain from passing comment on POTUS having two heads!

May be trying to soften him up with the high imports duties threatened after Christmas on Chinese imports :smiling2::smiling5:

Oh, I can think of all sorts of uses people might put one to … but I’ll try to avoid making this a political thread by not mentioning any :smiling3:

On the HB/Trumpeter Facebook page.......................... HB ZT-11 01.jpg HB ZT-11 02.jpg
Obviously for the Home market, pretty unknown in the west.
On the Zvezda Facebook page................................ zvezda su-75 01.jpg zvezda su-76 02.jpg

In 1/100 scale! - I must say, I was taken by the track detail - anyone made or seen any of their 1/100 models?

Zvezda’s 1/100 vehicles are intended for their wargames — those have figures and some guns in 1/72 (rather good ones at that) but vehicles in 1/100 probably so they don’t seem overly big on the table.

Tim,
sometimes, translations don't really work, for example the ICM slogan on every box, below their logo is " New in the Best" , which doesn't mean much in English! Still, I can forgive them for their really interesting models!! - like my 'in-progress' 1/35 Krupp truck

Agreed David, don’t really care if they get the English wrong, as long as they bring out new kits....especially when they are of unusual subjects...

The texts like “accurate copy of the prototype” and “correct details of uniform” also fall into that category, if you ask me. Who would advertise a model with “inaccurate to a large degree” on the box? :smiling3:
