Steve,
Understand completely your decision to decline any more requests, but would it be possible to get an update on your "to be developed" project list? Some of us have future builds in mind and it would help tremendously if we knew what goodies might be coming down the Model Monkey slipways to prevent scratchbuilding regrets!

Dave

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your interest and patronage!

Except for a few projects already announced, the project list is now "close-hold" and will not be made public. This is to help preclude competitors from preempting products in research and design, then quickly releasing identical products spoiling the market and wasting significant efforts and monies spent, as has happened.

I do regret any disappointment and inconvenience this causes modelers.

I will confirm two soon-to-be-released products, hopefully this month or next (no promises), a set of RMS Titanic funnels in 1/350 and 1/400 scales, and a bridge for USS Salem in 1/350 scale, not necessarily in that order. Renderings of one of the funnels appear below at about 80% complete. Some of what you see will change.

There will be more nameplates, too.

For those who haven't already done so, please consider subscribing to Model-Monkey.com at the bottom of the catalog's main webpage. Subscribers receive new product announcements via email, about once per month or so - no spam.

Thanks for your interest!

I regret to say that other than custom text on nameplates, I no longer accept requests for new research and design projects, free or commissioned. Other vendors may accept your request. You can reach many on Shapeways' 3D design request board, link: https://www.shapeways.com/forum/f/3d-de ... quests.92/

Hope this helps, thanks again and best wishes!

The Japanese 40 mm/62 is the gun called 2-pdr. Mark II (PomPom) by the British.

Niko Model offers one as Japanese version:

But I am sure there are better parts for the British available.

Guest, don't count on that as appears not many made of the actual gun & was in service about 10yrs as was replaced by the 25mm gun starting in 1935.

It will be a little while before both the Belfast compass platform and the Vickers weapons are ready. Thanks for your patience!

In the mean time, several new nameplates for modern PLAN (Chinese navy) Type 052B, 052C and 052D class destroyers are now available. Some examples are shown below. And a recent printing, the 1/700 scale USS Arizona Memorial, follows.

Thanks, Walt!

Good news, Vickers are in the queue
and research for them is complete. It will be a while before I can get to them. The queue is very full.

In other news, nameplates for all Derfflinger class battlecruisers have been added to the catalog, with names in Fette deutsche Shrift font for a traditional look.

Steve, I was wrong about the scale of the Sopwith Camel and Dr.1- they are 1/16 scale. Would love a couple of Vickers.

Happy to announce an island for USS Intrepid CVS-11 as it appeared from 1966-1967 in 1/350 scale has been added to the catalog. This island is intended as a replacement for the Gallery kit's island. USS Intrepid's island was in this configuration during operations off Vietnam with Carrier Air Wing 10 (CVW 10) embarked, tailcode "AK". The 3D-printed island has a more accurate shape than the Gallery kit's island and features open bridge and PriFly window framing and integrated venturi.

New nameplates include all modern Royal Navy Trafalgar-class submarines and several WWII-era T-class submarines. Nameplates are also available for all four T-class submarines in Royal Netherlands Navy service.
