I had a discussion with them today. They confirmed New Mexicos' (1941+) are going to be released. Hopefully during this year. Let's keep our fingers crossed...

What scale and would they be in full hulls?

Based on what Samek has released previously, they'd most likely be 1/700 waterline kits

I have Profile Morskie's books on the New Mexico, Mississippi and Idaho.
Out of curiosity, was there any difference for the New Mexico in 1945 compared to her refit in 1944 besides the ms21 paint job?

Thanks to ModelMonkey and Gabriel, we now have copies of New Mexico's October 1944 Booklet of General Plans for New Mexico online!

According to ROP/Samek representatives, they're working on it.

If Samek releases one or more NM kits, I will design at least one superstructure for them.

Steve; any chance you'll design some of the turrets for the 1/700 Samek WWI series dreadnoughts USS South Carolina etc like you did for the WWI USS New York/Texas?

Cool. :thumbs_up_1: I'll probably use it for the Blue Ridge's kit but we'll see...

Free Time Hobbies has abandoned the YMW and Midship lines of kits and have thrown away most of the patterns and molds. I have a few sets of molds and patterns for some kits that were under consideration for revisions and re-release as BRM kits. Unfortunately, there are no files for the etch and the previous supplier priced themselves out of consideration for them. In addition, the molds for the metal parts are also dead and cannot be replaced, although most of those components would have probably been replace with items from the BRM 3D line, or cast in resin. With so many missing components, though, those plans have also been cancelled.

With the announcement of the Samek kits and the Model Monkey upgrades, the Midship kits can be considered to be history now. I'm sure the Samek kits will be worth the wait.

I hope Samek will offer the kit in WWI configuration.
