We actually had several new items at the Scale Model World Show in Telford last weekend. I've got them all up on the websites now. Tom's Modelworks has the all-new 1/700 USS Argonaut kit as mentioned below and also a new PE set for the new 1/700 Aoshima Illustrious and Victorious kits.
White Ensign has new products also. Peter Hall has created two new sets for 1/350 scale German Destroyers. Set PE 35185 fits the Revell and Zvezda kit of Z-17 and set PE 35186 is for the various Trumpeter kits of the 1936 Mob destroyers (Z-25, Z-30, etc.) as well as Z-43. Both sets are comprehensive and beautifully executed as Peter's always are.

All items are available on their respective websites.

Thanks! It is a nice little kit of, what I think, is a very cool submarine - maybe not too successful but cool-looking and it has two 6-inch guns!

I assembled this yesterday. It goes together quite nicely. Any plans for future subjects?

Anyone built this kit yet ? I am almost done with mine and have been very happy with this little gem ! Detail is crisp and very complete.

I notice the decals also have V-5 and V-6. I would love to see a SS-167 Narwhal kit - I would be in for two !

Narwhal and Nautilus are definitely on the list of "things to do!" I've been occupied lately with a new set for the Fujimi IJN tankers. It's pretty comprehensive and it took a bit longer than I thought it would. Well worth it though I think. Set 794 on the Tom's website.

A quick demo build of the tanker bridge can be seen on the Kawasaki Type CASF thread: viewtopic.php?f=51&t=152657&p=741339#p741339
