Academy have announced they are releasing a Swedish Infantry Fighting vehicle CV9040B in 1/35th scale. Take a look inside for more details.
This latest release from Academy includes photo etched components and a turned aluminium barrel. Also included are either individual or link and length track links (I cannot be sure from the pictures provided and I do not speak Korean)

I also thought, it was already released some months ago. Perhaps this is an error and mistake, because Hobbyboss annonced their one. http://www.hobbyboss.com/a/en/product/armor/1_35/2012/0106/808.html greetings... Soeren

Yup this is old news. Been out ages, well more than a year, going on two.

Is it retro week on Armorama or something? Between this and the "announcement" of the two-year old Trumpeter M1117, suddenly it's 2010 all over again. Still, at least anybody to whom these kits are news will find a nice selection of aftermarket resin and PE already available for both

I think Darren said in another news thread he was catching up with older new releases so he would have a book mark as to what he had done and not done.

It would appear that you are correct on this Academy release as someone has now provided me wioth a link to an English version of the page. Al regarding the Trumpeter release I also believed this was an old item but it is listed on Trumpeter site as Oct 2011 release! Lastly I would request you cut me some slack as with Jim Rae's current unavailability I am running around like a headless chicken trying to cover everything.

So October 2010 makes it new???? Maybe you should double check some online webstores first, many indicate when a kit in stock was first released. Cheers, Christophe

You see what I mean Christophe I don't even know what year it is. It should read Oct 2011. If nothing else at least members are taking the time to comment.

Durn.. when I saw the thread title I got my hopes up for a CV9035. :-)

Hi Guys here is the original boxart On the one Darren posted, you get the mention New Tooling. Maybe Academy modified their original kit while they were working on the C version. Just my guess. Olivier
