Trumpeter's U.S. importer has just sent us details and some images of Trumpeter's releases for 4th quarter 2007 and 1st quarter 2008.
Beginning with 1/35th releases, three are being scheduled for (february, 2008) release:

2304 - German 15cm s.FH Field Howitzer

Consisting of 264 parts on 6 sprues, the kit also includes brass tubes, a turned-aluminium gun barrel, 100mm of metal chain and markings for a German Army example. Price is listed as $39.95.

The second of the 1/35th (full-kits) has been the subject of a great degree of both speculation and anticipation:

211 - MAZ-537G Soviet Tank Transporter with 5247G Semi-trailer.

With a length of around 70cm (26") and a correspondingly large number of parts, the 'vital statistics' of this new kit are: 492 plastic parts (including 9 clear), 9 truck tires, 9 trailer tires, brass wire, 4 frets of Photo-Etch parts and a die-cut mask for window framing. SRP is $149.95.

On the less 'spectacular' but equally useful side, is the last of the 1/35th scale releases in the form of:

6607 - LAV Series 8x8 tire set (325/85/R16 XML)

Eight replacement tires for the USMC LAV-25. SRP $14.95

In a different scale, but very much armor-related is:

701 - 1/16th scale Soviet Tank Crewman (1942)

Finally, in Trumpeter's increasingly large range of Braille-Scale armor kits, are:

7265 - German Pz.kpfw KV-1 756(r) Tank


7266 - German Pz.kpfw KV-2 754(r)

That's still going strong. Pictures of a testbuild of the hull sans upper hull was shown. It was posted here as well. Just look for the thread.

Yahoo The MAZ-537G is not my cup of tea but I'm happy they are finally releasing the15cm s.FH Field Howitzer.

I wonder from what material the LAV-25 replacement tyres will be made of? Are these any others than the kit's?
