Trumpeter has made a number of announcements covering works in progress, at the moment all of these are only art work or CAD images. Take a look inside for more details.
Trumpeter has announced no less than SIX new armoured fighting vehicles and three sets of workable tracks. One of these releases will put a big grin on the faces of our Canadian members I suspect. All of the armoured fighting vehicles announced here are post World War Two which will also please all of those who are into the more up to date armoured fighting vehicles. I will add it is interesting to see Hollywood making a showing in model kit artwork in the case of the M1129 Stryker Mortar Carrier armed with 120 mm Mortar.

Here is a breakdown of the armoured fighting vehicles in the works from Trumpeter

01554 - Russian T-62 BDD Mod.1984 (Mod.1972 modification) 1/35th scale

01505 - Canadian Grizzly 6x6 APC (Improved Version) - 1/35th scale

1512 - M1129 Stryker Mortar Carrier armed with 120 mm Mortar - 1/35th scale

05541 - Soviet IT-1 Missile tank - 1/35th scale

01599 - JGSDF TYPE 87 SPH - 1/35th scale

01530 - BMP-3E IFV - 1/35th scale

Here are the three new workable track sets Trumpeter is working on.

02047 - PT-76 Workable Track links 1/35th scale

02051 - T-64 Workable Track links - 1/35th scale

02058 - E-10 Workable Track links - 1/35th scale

This artwork was discussed here some time ago and the guys said it was from the film "Transformers".. or at least similar to a scene in the film. I haven't seen that film, so I wouldn't know for sure. Hisham

Nothing on the horizon for the first half of the year. Just got the Trumpeter releases for June, and nothing from the BTR-70/80. Mind you Trumpeter can always surprise us. It does have the first of the BRDM 2 series on it however, and more tracks, Panther, SV103 and E-25 I believe.

Another month another must-have from Trumpeter (at least for me). That Type-86 is another dream come true. Any sign of sprue shots?

There are already blatant errors in the Grizzly CAD drawing that are carried over from the early Grizzly kit. Trumpeter....there are tons of modern Canadian armour modellers with in depth knowledge about the AVGPs...feel free to send an email or PM if you want to correct errors in your kits!!!!

Adam... here's some pics of the Type 87 done by Pit Road.. which is the same kit as Trumpeter's http://www.sembado.com/photo/51th_ths/7.html Hisham

Thank you Hisham! But who designed this kit first? Does Trumpeter only re-box it?

It's a kind of a collaboration between the two companies. They've done this before with a couple of other Japanese wheeled vehicles.. like the Type 82 Command Vehicle and two others, if I remember correctly. Hisham
