A small news item

JASDF 1/72 Patriot Missile with truck

Aoshima announced the release of a 1/72 model of a Patriot Missile Launcher with a truck to haul the mobile Anti-Aircraft installation. The model is expected to be released in July and retails for approximately €19,00 to €25,00 at Hobby Link Japan.

Mk. VI

Other Japanese model building news comes from Tamiya. They will release a 1/35 scale Mk.VI 'Male' tank in July. The retail price is not yet known. A 1/35 Mk.IV has been availible for years from Emhar (as is a Mk.IV 'Female' and 'tatpole') but I find it an interesting release anyway being the first WWI model released by Tamiya.

Revell Kit.No. 03131 Leclerc

Not really news the 1/72 'Leclerc T.5' from Revell now availible. It is a re-release and a review of the model can be read here. It find it to be a very good model of a very futuristic looking tank, should not be missing from any modern armour collection.
