We have quite a few WW2 1/44th/12mm updates for you. There is lots of designing and tooling going on at the moment for this range.
A couple of days ago we received test frames of the eagerly awaited Wespe. German self-propelled artillery. This model looks fantastic and the frame is packed with little extras such as stowage and 4 crew figures. As with all our 12mm range, it is nice and easy to stick together and we can’t wait to see them painted. They have gone into production and will go on sale very soon.
The M10 tank destroyer is also nearly finished. We had test frames through but the tooling just needs a little tinkering with and then it is ready to start being mass produced. Thanks to Barry Evans for painting up these great little models.
Barry has also painted up some of our new M5 Stuarts. These are superbly detailed kits, and great for reconnaissance and infantry support.
We had test frames of the Sexton last week. It looks fabulous but needs a bit of extra tooling before going on release.
Other sets currently being tooled include the Priest, Puma, Panzer IV variants and Sherman variants. The Russian infantry are being laid out for tooling and we will have images of the British 6pdr, Loyd carrier and crew in the next couple of weeks.
This is a continually expanding range and we will be adding Russian vehicles in the new year.
Steve has been busy working on some terrain to show off the models superbly painted by Ruben and Barry for us. This scale really has all the advantages of being big enough to contain a lot of detail, and yet small enough to be able to fit a lot on the table in a small space and not look overcrowded.
We will be working on some terrain articles in the new year, showing you some techniques for making your building and working with and adapting commercially available models.
Plenty to look forward to!
