If only it was in 1/350 scale.


I second the motion. :(

Bof ! most certainly a release of the old kit by Hasegawa at the same scale 1/450. I do not think the current covid situation will push manufacturers to invest a lot in new big kits.

No, it'd be the new-mold one released in 2015: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10343419

Don't count on it, scale model building has had a big upswing this year. People stuck inside looking for something to do....

BIG NEWS TODAY - at least for me :)
Japanese Light Cruiser Yubari at Battle of Savo Island is coming from Pit-Road!
Hope they will make a corresponding PE set, too

I've been looking for Aoshima Exeter Limited Edition with corvettes. All seem to be "sold out", "not in stock", or "not available". Did I just miss it, or is it just temporarily out of stock because of Covid? :pout:

Very cool that there is a new Yubari kit! :woo_hoo:

@ drasticplastic: the Exeter special edition with the Flower class corvettes is long sold out. That is not COVID19-related, it was a limited special edition. It is unfortunate that the Flower class corvettes are not available separately.

Bummer! :pout: It was the corvettes I really wanted! I suppose Aoshima threw out the molds no longer having a use for them! :doh_1: Please, Mr. Flyhawk, after all the British destroyers, how about some nice corvettes?

I have the corvettes, as reviewed on the review forum. I sold the Exeter.

The corvettes are far too good to never be sold again. It was evident from the sprue shape and the brass and the excellent full-colour instructions that a lot of effort had been spent to make them suitable for an independent release. But nothing came.

I'm going to start another thread to try to list 'extras' which came with kits and them disappeared.

I was just about to ask did Flyhawk made molds for this Pit-Road kit too.
Too bad.
I guess Flyhawk spoiled us. :wink_3.gif

Since Trumpeter released a 1/350 heavy cruiser HMS Cornwall, does this mean they will also release her sister 1/350 HMS Dorsetshire also in the future? Sorry if I missed a past announcement about it.



Ahem,anyone have any news about my old question above?

Haven't found any news I may have missed in forum searches today...

Extremely unlikely. Dorsetshire was a different sub class to Cornwall with a completely different hull.

Not sure if mentioned already (didn't find it however) - the Very Fire's 1/700 USS Missouri is about to be released in a couple of days according to Hobby Easy. Both the standard and Deluxe editions.

Hello!

I'm surprised that 1:200 DKM Scharnhorst is coming very soon!
