Weren’t there some new small ships released?

I could swear that Five Star released a Aircraft Recovery Ship (a higher detailed version of the one that comes in the IJN Tuggers set).

I wish Five Star would finish the Second Set of the PE for those ships.

Pit-Road is planning to release a 1/350 Yamato Bridge structure in September. The translation says it's based on the updated research used for their new 1/700 kit. An interesting accessory.

Lots of pics on the Hobbysearch Japan site: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10551350


I saw this and really had to question what was being gained. Side by side with the Tamiya Premium edition and the Tamiya plastic has more detail. The only real difference I saw was the gun tubs on the Pit-Road had some girders and detailing on the inside walls that the Tamiya does not. There is also some gentle bridge detailing but I think its minor and not worth $80.

Why not Boston? Canberra is Canberra. After all if we can have a dozen or more Bismarck's and Tirpitz in the same scale why not two sister ships.

Yes they are resin. If you look at all the photos HobbySearch shows they show all the parts with what apppears to be resin over pours, plus the parts are yellow and you can tell the built up superstructure has been primed. Estimated cost $81 so further evidence it’s a resin set.

The photo of the parts looks like they're made of resin?

Dodo Models announced in 1/700:

German frigate of the Baden-Württemberg class (Klasse 125/F-125)

Danish frigate of the Iver Huitfeldt class

Image

In case of the Iver Huitfeldt it is stated that a NH-90 would be included, but the drawing shows the correct MH-60R - plus two Arvak class tugs, one loaded with a 7.62 cm gun :D

For sure there are classes for which a endless number of kits are available. But there are also still classes, for which no kits are available, e.g. for USS Little Rock and Oklahoma City as missile cruisers. Were there are lot of difference between Boston and Canberra? For sure, bot were modified during their service as missile cruisers. I would have thought that it would be no problem to built Boston from the Canberra kit.

This is really good news! It will be interesting if Niko Model releases also the late version. The plans of the early version are much easier to find.

Apparently Orange Hobby announced another 1/700 kit of a 1950s ship:

USS Boston, CAG-1

I do not understand why another 1/700 kit of the Boston class. The Canberra by Niko Model is already available.

That's awesome, one of my favorite postwar cruisers, but I hope they also have the missile armed version planned for future release. It's too bad the real ship ended up going for scrapping after having been saved as a museum ship.
