At the beginning let me say that this report should serve simply as an indicator as to what to expect from Trumpeter during 2007. There have been other items announced which were not on show at Nuremberg and other items in the catalogue which may or may not appear this year...
Trumpeter's stand was one of the more visible during the Trade Fair. Partly this was due to the constant demonstration of tank combat between a 1/16th scale R/C T34 and a Tiger. However, entertaining (and good-looking) as these undoubtedly were, a number of the new 1/35th (and 1/16th scale) Armor kits were on show. This report should serve as a reminder of what to expect in 2007:

Trumpeter - 1/35th Scale Armor Releases for 2007

02304: German sFH 18 Field Howitzer

02305: German K 18 Field Howitzer

00364: Russian BMP - 3

00365: Russian BMP-3M

00368: German Panzerjagerwagen

00370: USMC LAV-R (Vehicle recovery)

00371: USMC LAV-C2 (Command and Control)

00372: USMC LAV-AT (Anti Tank)

00373: German PzIVB 'Grasshopper' leFH18/1 L2b

00375: 'Stryker' ICV

00376: Russian T-62

00377: Russian T-62M

00378: German GW 'Grille II' 17cm Cannon

003XX: Multiple GMC M16

In addition to this list was the 'Dicker Max' which was announced in fall '06 at the Japan Hobby Show.

Also previously announced at Japan were two NEW 1/16th scale AFVs:

There are so many cool new things! I do not know where to begin. The "Grille II" and the "Dicker max" are both definently on the shopping list. The BMP 3 is a very nice addition as well. Don't get me started on the 1/16 vehicles. They are just beautiful. I had never imagined that somebody would make a modern highly detailed kit of the King Tiger with a complete interior! Thanks for the update even though some of the things had been announced earlier.

All I can say is wow, I need another job to pay for all these new kits that I want, the Grille II, the Grasshopper, the two howitzers and not forgetting the two parts of the Armoured train, I can only hope they release a full BP-42/44 standard train, will save me scratchbuilding so much....
