There are two new kits on the way from Revell of Germany with the memories of the Cold War.
Revell of Germany has announced two new kits. The first is an M48 Patton in West Germany service, while the second is an 8-wheel AFV, the SpPz2 Luchs. These look to be interesting subjects from the Cold War.

03236 M48A2GA2
03036 SpPz2 Luchs A1A2

Armorama would like to thank Revell of Germany for the update.

The M48 have been announced quite a long time ago, and was initially scheduled for a September release, any change in the release date? Cheers, Christophe

It had better be. If it is new, then it failed fixed any of the old kit's glaring inaccuracies.[/quote] That's fighting talk do tell?

If it is new, then it failed fixed any of the old kit's glaring inaccuracies.[/quote] That's fighting talk do tell?[/quote] The lower hull conspicuously slopes inwards, not vertical like in the kit The tyres provided are too conspicuously wide There should be no foot step notch in the third wheel well rim on the right side The gun mentlet is totally wrong. There should be no gap under the mantlet when the gun elevates, and the gun should be able to depress about 10 degrees. All major weld seams are missing The spent shell case discharge chute is too far to the rear, and should pivot as the gun elevates and depresses.

As an old M48A5, M60A1 and M60A3 Tank Commander in the early/mid 80s, I'm happy to see any new "Patton" series of tanks coming into the market. I'm just glad that Revell of Germany is releasing German Cold War Armored vehicles in 1/35th scale... PLEASE release a German M113 with the MG1 mount on the T/C's hatch... Better yet!! PLEASE release a copy of the HS-30 APC with the 20mm cannon!!
