I wonder if HobbyBoss/Trumpeter will anounce new semi drednought soon, they made Danton and Lord Nelson so Satsuma should be next i guess.
I would love to see more of full pre drednoughts especially french to be honest.

Also does anyone have any news on Veryfire 1:350 Aoba?

Trumpeter's 1/200 Enterprise is on its way and there is a new 1/72 WW1 U Boat U.9 from Das Werks.

What time frame did they present there Enterprise in ??? Looks like her original 1.1 inch AA has been swapped out for 40 mm quads.... Aircraft would suggest Midway ??

1.1in guns weren't removed until after Eastern Solomons. It's been previously mentioned that it's most likely a Santa Cruz fit.

Correction that was likely a typo. The 40mm were what is added after Eastern Solomons.

She had the quad 40mm installed by Santa Cruz. One of the reasons she survived and Hornet didn't. That and she didn't eat a torpedo.

Hmm... with Intrepid now under the Trumpeter label, will we finally see release of the Vietnam-era aircraft packs?

Add the HMS Calcutta scaled down to 1/700 as well! And while your at it, if your not going to release the Belfast in 1/700, then make its sister the Edinburgh appear instead!

How long ago was 1/700 Belfast, from Trumpeter announced there? 5-6 years ago?
I guess some items are just way down on their priority list.

Hasegawa is releasing a 'limited edition' of its 1/450 scale IJN Aircraft Carrier Shinano in January 2021 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the laying down of the keel. The model website (not a sponsor on here) I saw this on does not mention whether the kit is an upgrade or not. Although it does say you get a bonus special badge.

If only it was in 1/350 scale.
