Oliver Publishing Group has released some great books – is this
new title – “To the last Bullet” Germany's war on three fronts Part II - Italy"
amongst their best? Well we read it today and thought it only nice to share our
thoughts in today’s review
Alpine Miniatures has set a hard task for themselves in replicating one of the more famous SS men of WWII and his companion in their latest figures set – we look at them both and put them together to see if this sculpt is cut from the right cloth or an impostor to the cause…
You have to admire the large scale dioramas of the amazing “Panzerwerk” factories - Intricate scenes of large tanks
being built and repaired in massive factory complexes seem like another world. Well this did indeed happen in real life and when trying to recreate these scenes modellers just cannot get
enough research material and inspiration. We now have the next best thing to actually being in these factories - especially the MAN factory in Nürnberg that the guys from Panzerwrecks have made the focus of their latest special book title. We have read it and can give you an extensive look at it in today's review.
Should we take another look at signing up for duty? Of course not! But it’s
good to dream isn’t it? With the two new figures from Aurora we can live life through
the eyes of some female Panzer commanders. We are off to enrol…
The good ship Revell
of Germany ploughs into the Christmas season with some serious and some fun
modelling project to tempt you this Christmas – of course to modellers they are
all serious but for the people buying them for you they might just look like
fun….Hopefully they can be both! Check them out in our preview of their December
Time to put your old Revell kits away! Kittyhawk have plans to release the Kaman SH-2D &F Seasprite in 48th scale on the 20th of December so if you are lucky you might have a four bladed Xmas present. We have some new info on colour schemes from the boxart for you..
CGS Military Figures
have provided us with the new boxart of their latest bust – the famous French
Imperial Guardsman in 1815 is the subject – he is sculpted by Carl Reid and
painted just as skilfully by Painted by Man Jin Kim. We thought we would show
you the new pictures…
If it doesn't rain it pours … this– the "Object 279" from Takom is the second kitting of this type we have seen in the last few months. Let’s have a nice look at this all new tool super heavy AFV and put her together to see just how different she is…
Kagero’s “Units” series continues with a great subject - the
unit of Jagdgeschwader 2 “Richthofen” - this grouppe had many aces and served
right throughout the Second World War in several different types – so lot of
choices for the three scales of decals which accompany them! Let’s look deeper in our
You can pretend you are making and painting this model of Santa and the child
as a Christmas decoration? And if that doesn’t cut it as an excuse you can sink
into a chair in the corner with your brilliant new boo of thirty years of
Andrea History – or if not that there is a brand new Figure International coming….
We tipped you off to the first part of Telford IMPS releases from Barracuda Studios just yesterday – now
we have part two of the new stuff – new resin updates for the PCM Tempest and
the new Meng Me 163.
D-day miniature studio - a new company focusing on
releasing resin figures from WWII has two new figures of the “allied” lovers
amongst us – their set of two single or in a pair Dispatch Rider and British MP in 35th scale are a
welcome change to the genre..
Anyone who has been following Roy from Barracuda
Studios in recent history will know that he really “fancies” British
aircraft. Well he has made good on his passions with this – his latest conversions
and corrections from the Spitfire and Westland whirlwind…
This month Italeri restores some faith with some better
pictures of their new Starfighter – it may still be all we hoped! Along with a
re-issued Dodge that modellers will snap up, a tiny helicopter in small scale
and THE most gaudy F-16 you will ever see ( still cool tho)
With all of these modern AFV’s on the market recently we never realized there was not a magazine out there that focused solely on modern armour and military – But apparently there is - Abrams Squad: The Modern Modelling Magazine is published by PLA Editions and purports to be the FIRST magazine in the world devoted to Modern Warfare modelling – but how does it compare to other magazines in the market?
Two aircraft that are very popular with modellers – the Corsair and the Catalina – are the subject of Squadron’s new “in Action” titles this month. We have some preview information on them both in today's news
