Yes PLEASE!

I’ve really gotten into the German Raiders this year, and would love to build some of them (and their victims). Will have to get the NNT Kormoran now that global shipping seems to have been somewhat straightened out.

I was doing some random browsing and, sad to say, I found this:
https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10712929
The Trumpeter kit could actually be potentially better than the Flyhawk/Sphyrna release, even though it is annoyingly not waterlined! Trumpeter has made more use of slide-molding so there are fewer parts to the superstructure to line up. Can't address the quality of the surface detail. There's a comprehensive set of PE included. Looks like Flyhawk went totally "economy" on their release!

So the SBD Dauntless did have folding wings after all?

No it did not. It was not possible for Douglas at the time to get the stability to withstand to pressure of dive bombing and out folding wings on it. Even the late model SBD-5 did not have folding wings. That was one of the Navy’s complaints about. It was also one of the chief reasons for replacing it with the Helldiver.

My understanding is that Vee Models is in some way related to Joy Yard.

I see Aoshima is releasing a variant of HMS Kent in December.

http://www.aoshima-bk.co.jp/en/product/4905083056738/

Wouldn't it be nice if they decide to expand the County class coverage to other ships as well? Anyone know if that is planned?

I for one would like a May 1941 Suffolk, a Canberra too!

Hi PaulC, I don´t want to calm your excitement too much, but have you seen any of the Aoshima 1/700 Kent-class already? Unfortunately, they are not much up to the quality of many recent 1/700 releases (Fujimi, Flyhawk...). They can still be used as a basis for further improvement or conversion, but you´d end up with a lot of plastic waste then ;)

Hi Vladi,

I actually have built four and am working on a 5th (as Berwick)! While I do appreciate the incredible and intricate work so many of you guys do, I just do my best with what I have and am happy with them.

While Aoshima's quality can't even remotely compare to Flyhawk's - if I was waiting on Flyhawk, I wouldn't have ANY 1/700 Counties right now, much less 5.

For Suffolk, better Aoshima tools the stern cut down than for me to risk trying it myself! :oops: :big_grin:

So, with them still releasing variants of ships they've already done, I hope they'll do more of the class.

Paul

Ok, Paul, you are right. I should have kept that comment to myself, sorry for that... It just reflected my own frustration from the Kent kit, I had much higher expectations.
I now stop stealing this thread on this topic - back to modelling! :wave_1:

Not exactly a model warship, but I'll be getting one:

RPG models, the people that brought us 1/35 CWIS close in weapon system kit and a 1/35 Searam will be doing a 1/35 GoalKeeper close in weapon system model kit:
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... tn__=-UC-R

Hope to see more 1/35 ship-board weapon systems in the future.

Just saw that this morning, but I'm kinda disappointed. 1/70 scale? What the heck is that? Would have killed them to go 1/72? Besides 1/35 would have been amazing. I'm hoping Takom and RPG Mdels have even more Naval weapon systems kits in the future.

A 1/35 quad 40 with crew would be high on my wish list.
