I just spotted some sprue shots for Academy's next releases on MMZ.

M10 TD Soviet 'Lend Lease':


Panther G wheels and tracks and what looks to my inexpert eye to be a Sturmpanzer:


As usual, it looks like Academy are going for the simpler end of the market, which I personally like so long as what's there is accurate - which I think most of their recent all-new releases have been.

Sturmpanzer IV. The text says there are other Panzer IV variants on the way. It also says the Panther is to be Panther G last (terminal in Google translate)but if the sprue is any indication there will be other G versions in the future.

Surprised they haven't announced another Pzkpfw IV G/H/J variant. The parts were there in the first release for many kinds of production variants.

The M10 is nothing special with only the Masterbox crew and steel track as variation from other releases. Why not a new M4A2 with the crew instead? But something as rare in Russian service as the M10?? (About 50?)
