Previously covered in a brief update (via the U.S. Importers) we present a batch of company-supplied images of Trumpeter's Aerosan in 1/35th scale.
When this was announced, a month or so ago, I admit to scratching my head as, on first reflection, it appeared to be duplication of the Aerosan from Vision Models. This, you'll be delighted to hear, is NOT the case.

Trumpeter have decided to do the ARMORED version of the Aerosan rather than the plywood and metal version portrayed in the previously mentioned release.

The new model, which, according to Trumpeter themselves, will be released in June 2011 and is:

02321 - NKL-26 Aerosan

Our thanks to our colleagues at Trumpeter Ltd. for the Update!

This keeps looking better every time we see more on it. I really like how the belt for the pulleys is PE, may be a little thin but it looks a lot better than molding a chunk consisting of two pulleys with thick sticks of sprue connecting them. I hope that the PE support brackets on the skis are each one piece instead of two or three separate pieces.

I can only say that Wild Bill, fan of anything wierd, is moving this puppy to the top of his list. I can't believe this thing hasn't been in a James Bond movie. Hmmm. Maybe I can paint it british green and give it a few extra trick weapons.

Hmm, I'm guessing jet turbine, remote lasers, miniature mines, and hidden rockets are in order for your build then?

Strange yet interesting. I see the way the thing steers by the swiveling rods on the side but the ski axles don't seem to have a pivot point that would move them left or right. Does anybody else see this or is it just me?

No Alfred, you're not the only one. But strangely, this looks exactly the same as real ones. I stared at photos and plans but couldn't figure out how this things steered. Like you said, the joint between the arms and hull only allow for up/down movement. Strange....

How it steers: I would suggest picking up the Tankograd book on the Aerosan.

Yes, that's true it seems a sort of SF vehicle Thanks a milion to trumpeter to give us the opportunity to build also those odd and stunning subjects The only thing that worries me is the pe part around the circular main hatch. It seems to me quite difficult to mount it in a decent way I don't known if I buy it yet , actually I've been waiting for t-64 for ages and unfortunately I can't afford to buy all that I'd like to have...But it'll be very hard not to pander cheers

This "Аэросани" (Aerosani) are looking very nice! I'm going to to buy them!

So glad that someone finally made styrene aerosan kit! Although my Kirin resin RF-8 was an "exciting" build, I'm really looking forward to building a straightforward and VERY detailed version of these sleds
