Well it has been sometime since we have heard of the pending Duster from AFV Club. Is the pending release getting closer?
Back in October 2011, Amorama brought the news of the planned AFV Club M42 Duster. Knowing that sometimes these take a while, if ever coming to the market, and it has been a long coming for the old Tamiya kit to be replaced. Well recently AFV Club posted some updated pictures on their Facebook page, that I would like to share. And I usually don’t buy into rumor control, but there are rumblings that the Duster may be available by April 2012. This is based on some Asian vendors offering a pre-order. Not sure if this will actually happen, but we can keep our fingers crossed.

I think this is about 15 years overdue. Skybow was supposed to do this great little track and it became vaporware . It looks like it is going to finally see the light of day, so I'm a happy camper. Now, we still could use the M-37 series ...

Is it my chosen period of modelling (WWII)? NO Is iot my preferred nationality of AFV (British)? NO Do I want one? Yes I do! This kit looks awesome. I will certainly be giving one a go

I'm with you Chris. I'm primarily a WWII builder but this one sure interests me. Kind of reminds me of the Kugelblitz. Coincidence....ahhhh....maybe. Jeff
