Accurate Armour continue with their impressive releases with two new items in both 1/35th scale and 1/76th. Although the latter is not a scale we tend to associate with the company, the choice of scale becomes quickly apparent...
The Polish AM Barrel company, ArmorScale shows no signs of slowing down in it's release schedule - this month, no less than ELEVEN new gun-barrel sets in 1/48th and 1/35 along with a list of a further TWELVE future releases...
A week or two ago I answered a thread on another site regarding AM upgrades for Italeri's D.U.K.W. in 1/35th scale.

Over the weekend, the annual Toy Fair was held in Nuremberg , Germany. Amongst the most intriguing of the new products announced, were tthose of a new company - Hobby Boss. The company is producing a range of armor kits in both 1/48th and 1/35th scale along with track sets....

In the third of these Dragon Models' News stories based on their 2006, catalogue, the attention turns to an increasingly important (and horribly neglected) part of the hobby - 1/72nd scale.

The list in the catalogue, is curiously enough, a lot more interesting than the lists for 1/35th scale.

It should also be noted, these are informative , not definitive. Things will doubtless change during the course of the year.....
Thru a special 'dispensation' - Dragon Models are allowing us to publish the details of the new products listed in theit 2006 catalogue.

As the modelling year comes to an end, and as I rarely get a chance to 'editorialize' (at least to any great extent), this seems like quite a good opportunity to be even more opinionated than I usually am (ahem...)

In this, I'm going to be taking a (highly) personal view of what (to me at least) have been the highs (and lows) of this year's new releases....

Sadly, for many modellers, 1/72nd scale still seems to require a lot of convincing. Here with the latest (and future) releases of 1/72nd scale armor from Dragon Models are a number of VERY convincing arguments....
