Really disappointed to see that nothing is released in 1/350 since last summer.
1/700 is too small for my eyes and my fingers now, and I think I am not alone.
I hope manufacturers, both resin and plastic, will think about it.
I am waiting for the Kutuzov from Combrig in resin at 1/350, like sister Ann in the Bluebeard tale (Sister Ann, sister Ann, do you see him coming ? Now sister, I just see an empty road...), and would like plastic manufacturers issuing such niceties as Queen Elizabeth, Gerald Ford, Vikrant, Shandong or Izumo, just to speak about aircraft carriers. Battleships Hyuga (not the hybrid one already issued some years ago) or Vanguard, Jean Bart, would also be very welcome, as well as the ships promised by Trumpeter (Nelson, Rodney, Baltimore, Littorio...) !

Dear Philippe,
please read through the last pages of this thread or define "nothing". Missouri, Ranger, Seydlitz, Hyuga (Hybrid new tool), Alaska, Hiyo to name a few.
Best regards,

Yes, I understand. Thus I define :
Missouri is nothing new, there are plenty of her in all scales.
Seydlitz is already produced by Combrig, ok, in resin
Hyuga hybrid is nothing new, just of remake of the Ise produced some years ago, And it is surprinsing that the full BB version was never issued
Alaska was released last summer, Guam will be / is the same with different markings
Hiyo is another Junyo of winter 2017
Therefore, in your list, for me, just Ranger is a new modelled ship, but I must say it does not interest me.

Okay, time goes fast.
I just wonder whether the group of builders in 1/350 is that big or just comparatively "loud". At least from the sales in my shop I must assume the latter. I would have thought Ranger will sell well, but no. Same with the Dunkerque/Strasbourg and Zara. Let's see if the current offer of Aoshima Kirishima at 110€ will raise some interest. Not new, but no longer expensive.

Unfortunately, I fear you are right. And not only for 1/350. For all types of models the same, ships, aircrafts, vehicles...
In Brussels, the last shop I know closed down this winter, after two others closed down within the 8 last years... I will now have even to buy paints and glue by internet !

Maybe a lot of people feel like I do,that 1/350 scale ships are too expensive, and we have limited space to store things. I would definitely buy a Ranger (and the Langley) in the smaller scale but income and space say NO to 1/350.

I don't recall this being posted before. If it has, my apologies. From a Japanese site earlier this year, Fujimi is planning to release the Yamato tower bridge in 1/200 scale sometime in 2018. This on the heels of its 1/200 main turrets.

Talk about a piecemeal release.

Oh be still my beating heart.... Any more info on this? I'm slowly building a 1/200 Yamato currently.

Would certainly be a $$$ way to improve the old 1/200 kits...

I already have the L'Arsenal's Main turrets, secondary turrets, and covered 12.7 guns, waiting on the uncovered 12.7 guns from them. I might as well wait for this bridge section and add that to the mix. Think I'll put that on the hold shelf for now and start another kit. But if anyone has the link to the original page or more info, I'd love to know.

No other information on the 1/200 bridge tower has come to light, yet.

I just saw in an email from Hobby Search that Pit Road is releasing a USS Livermore Model.

It lists it as a "pre-order."

But I am wondering if it isn’t just a re-release of their old kit... Or if it really is a new Gleaves-class DD.

Anyone know anything?

Quite a strange way to release a kit! You just know Fujimi has a 1/200 Yamato in the works.

I wonder which stern they will mould into their hull...

Thanks Steve - wow, is this the first Aoshima kit containing/of an IJN subject that doesn't use the old waterline consortium sprue for its small parts? About time!

That's because it's not their kit, just a tacked-on extra already released separately.

The extras are great value for money. Full etch sheet and wood deck for the price. Just paid my pre-order and it came to £55 for the kit, detail parts and shipping from Japan.

I am happy for the photoetch set, but not for the wood deck toupee. I wish they left that part out.

The IJN DD included with the Exeter is a Yamashita kit with "back dated" bridge(?) parts as I believe Dan K has indicated in a posting on the CASF forum.

I bought the turrets, thinking it was going to be a stand alone, then, to my surprise when it turned up I got three turrets.
I thought it was strange, oh well, answers that question.
