Not at the moment.

If you look at the first post on this thread there is a list (ordered by scale) which is kept updated as kits are announced, released (and occasionally cancelled) - a great resource, very useful and I am grateful for the work put in by "Timmy C".

Ah yes, I had seen that. Just wanted to check to see if anyone knew of any rumours about a 1/350 kit... :cool_2:

Could anyone answer me a question to save me reading through 143 pages please?

Does anyone know if there are any plans afoot by any manufacturers to release a 1/350 kit of the Illustrious class from WW2? :smallsmile:

Yes, as the "Release Date: Jun 2010" indicates at the bottom.

It was by me personally - on my BritModeller account - and I stand by my thoughts - despite Joy Yard claims on the facebook page
eg https://www.chinahao.com/product/564729851453/
This is ' offered ' for sale ( supposedly ) yet there are zero units in stock !!
also I found a Chinese website where it was originally for sale - and used a translator program to decipher the Chinese writing
this is what it says
" News JOY YARD HOBBY: 1/350 Latest progress update on USS Missouri
Static model enthusiasts 2019-01-07
All the way to support so far the gold owners, I am sorry to inform everyone: because of mold processing problems, before the Spring Festival can not ship.
If there is because the scheduled time expires and automatically refund - the gold master, can wait for this product shipped to the same store to the original
"

I am convinced old test sprue shots meant nothing unless we see actual an In-Box review and its released for sale
I am certain the project is dead in the water ……… I hope I am proved wrong , however ( I like Model Ships )



lI was the OP of the troubles of Joy-Yard in May... and even before that last year.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=167046&hilit=joy+yard&start=40

As of June, Joy-Yard says they are still going to make a run at it. But I haven't seen anything on the Chinese forums to indicate that they actually will.
I think its more of a last gasp of air before the project completely disappears.

I looked at the pictures of the forthcoming Aoshima releases of Dorsetshire (a re-release) and Cornwall (a new release) on the HobbySearch website and I can say with a degree of confidence that the Dorsetshire kit is indeed a "corrected" 1/700 scale version. I say this because it shares a number of distinctive engineering features with the more recent Norfolk kit, rather than the original Dorsetshire kit (I have both).

The photos of the Cornwall model looks like it is still under development, as it is crude in places; the hull bulge looks good, but the bow knuckle is not in evidence. I assume this will be added later. Aoshima took the effort to correct the inaccurate bow knuckle in the original Dorsetshire kit in their Norfolk release (and it looks like the Dorsetshire re-release has the corrected knuckle as well). So don't draw too many conclusions from this early preview of the kit.

The Norfolk kit is really nice--very reminiscent of the best of Dragon's past 1/700 releases--though perhaps a bit over-engineered, as deckhouses consist of many/multiple parts. But the detailing is, overall, quite delicate and nice, so Aoshima seems committed to doing a good job with these kits. The re-release of a corrected Dorsetshire kit is testimony of this.

Is it probable that the retooled Dorsetshire shares the Norfolk hull, internal supports and waterline plate plus a slightly retooled main deck from he original Dorsetshire kit to fit the Norfolk hull? I assume that the balance of the original kit parts are unchanged.

Yeah no kidding; I am very pleasantly surprised they're going back to Dorsetshire.
I nominate underscale Wasp for their next re-do :big_grin:




Double giggity! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :heh:

Sorry, patrol boat 101, 102 was DD224 USS Stewart

Over at Hobbysearch today Aoshima have a Dorsetshire, standard version and Cornwall with a WW1 vintage S-class destroyer. Cornwall claims to be a new mold, but I'd like someone else to scale it before I get one, having been burned by the earlier Dorsetshire. I want that destroyer though. Maybe it can double as patrol boat 102 in the IJN.

There's some sort of modern flattop too, JFK CV-67 from Trumpeter, but we don't get excited about that, do we?

Perhaps the 1/700 Type 23 is full hull due to the fact that the ship has a lower transom, which would be difficult to produce with the hull split.

  Post subject:  Re: *Inj. molded plastic* Upcoming Ship Kit Releases  Reply with quote
The Type 23 in 1/350 kit by Trumpeter was released at least five years ago.

It has only the full hull option. Perhaps that is the explanation: they simply were lazy and did not modify anything to adapt the kit to the typical usage in the specific scale.

Hello, where did you see the information? neither on the Trumpeter website nor on his Facebook I saw information or confirmation. (I have been observing what has been related to this kit since its first announcement, I already believe 3 years ago). Is it confirmed is water line? (since there are recently released 1: 700 models that are full hull).

Regards.

Alberto


Those recently released FULL HULL kits are:

Chinese Navy PLAN Type 002 aircraft carrier 06725
Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate 06720

I would expect all of Trumpeters 1/350 Type 23 kits to be released in 1/700 as Full Hull.
(Wish all future 1/700 releases would have the Lower hull. :thumbs_up_1: )

It seems strange that with Trumpeter's history, a release of a 1/700 kit that's probably based on the previous 1/350 full-Hull kit mold, would be devoid of the lower hull. Perhaps a portion of their business decision is based on whether the 1/350 version has a separate lower hull. If the 1/350 hull is one piece, like the 1/350 CV-64 Constellation, then conversion to 1/700 is easier to do as waterline. Geeez, look at all the red plastic they save...:cool_2:

Fortunately Trumpeters latest re-issues of the Pearl Harbor 1941 Battleships still have the lower hull. At least that is good news for those of us who want a complete model of a ship. I see they have added flag decals and an engraved name plate to the kits along with the recent price hike.
