Meng Models will be releasing their version of the Shandong in 1/700. No release date given. From what I've seen of the pics elsewhere, it's along the same lines as their earlier releases for the Lexington (CV-2), Rodney & Bismarck.

And one can find images of the kit's CAD in my link in the first post - just updated a day or so ago!

Revell Germany is releasing a limited edition 1/700 "Hood vs. Bismarck" set. The box art shows Hood in what looks like her 1930's fit. Wonder if that's a new tool of Hood or a re-pop of the Italeri 1/720?

Same box art as the centenary gift set from a couple of years ago. Safe to say it'll be the 720 one, sadly.

I wonder if Flyhawk has any logic to the stuff they show in their future releases.

Some years they have CAD "drawings" of ships that are to be released. One would think that it should indicate that the ships is soon to be released since they have taken the time to make a CAD drawing. But then the ship disapears and something else appears that is released instead. I think it is odd.


I can't understand it either. We all know that they are not going to release even half of the kits listed as "2021 catalogue", so I don't really see the point of such uncertain lists.

Also, does it mean that Dresden and Emden were cancelled? :cry_3:

I want them to do SMS Moltke, but I think I might be pretty happy with Hood!

I'm very tempted by their Invincible too.

Half hulls. I think I could see myself buying the 1/700 SoDak and getting trumpeter lower half for it to make a decent model. Always liked SoDak, they were probably prettiest ones of the US modern battleships (with North Carolina), Bismarkc Like but more tighter in their profile, and - beautiful.
