Coming out of Hobby Boss is an announcement for a heavy multi-turreted tank in 1/35 scale in the works.
Hobby Boss has announced that a Russian T-35 is in the works and should be available soon. This heavy multi-turreted tank started development in the early 1930s. The tank saw little war action due to many mechanical failures, but some did serve in the early stages of the Battle of Moscow. As an extra bonus, Hobby Boss has stated to be working on a Russian T-28 as well.

A new styrene T-35 AND a new T-28 as well? NOTHING to complain about, there! These will, I am sure, be fairly popular and another breath of different, even fresh, air for all, and specially for those looking for more pre-WWII stuff and the odd and less-successful explorations in armored warfare! I think I'll save my pennies in anticipation! Bob

I'm happy to see a new T35 and really happy to see it coming from HobbyBoss. I wonder if it'll have any interior.

These will kill the "collectibility" that those old ICM kits are now enjoying. I hope the companies have done their homework and overcome any accuracy issues the ICM's had.

I'm pretty sure you have the first one right! ICM's old "collectible" kits should soon become more prosaic old kits. I'll HOPE that you are also wholly right on the second point! That one awaits the jury until we see whatever it is the HB trots out. I too expect that some stuff will be fixed and the detail and engineering much better. This will be GOOD. Another reminder of that Golden Modeling Age we are so lucky to be living in! Bob

So Yuri, If I understand what this pic is saying, the kit looks to measure out pretty well so far? Cool!

Never fears... I am just finishing up my T-28 for the Stain's Armor campaign (ICM Kit) and then new kit announced............

Cool? May be. But, if "Trump" will release the corrected kit this will be better. Anyway, rivets and holes are not very important. But the size of "box under main turret" is very important.

Great news anyway!
