Michael Benolkin has just posted a in-box kit review of the new Hasegawa #01561, 1/72 scale E-2C Hawkeye ("Hawkeye 2000") for your review on Cybermodeler

The MSRP on this little gem is $58.95 (US$) which will make you and your wallet cringe when you go to cash out and take this kit home.

The Hannants price for the new Lancaster GRIII with lifeboat is an eyewatering £55.00.  My response is unfortunately too harsh for the delicate maidens who post here.

Oh, go on - you know you want to................ :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

I'm guessing it involves "sideways" and "and the ....... lifeboat...."

Maschinen Krieger is a scifi seriescreated by Kow Yokoyama in the 1980s.  It centers around a future war fought by forces primarily composed of powered armor suits.  It was intended to create a very different visual style from the Japanese "giant robot" genre.  Here's the Wiki article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maschinen_Krieger_ZbV_3000

A good selection of (well) built-up models can be seen here:

Yep Weaver it's a continuation the SF3D models. I read somewhere that Kow Yokoyama bought all the old moulds from Nitto and is planning to repop them himself if the moulds are in reasonable condition. Saw a pic on a Japanese site of a dark blue Vtol with a Bo105 cockpit, Looked very interesting.

Not new kit news, but the latest batch of new arrivals inthe UK have eye-watering prices.  1/48 F-15DJ, a kit over 20 years old, £38!!!!  The new tool 1/72 Hawkeye?  £32.50!!!!!!

I've wanted both these kits since they were announced, but not at that price!

Nev, I had a good look in the new 1:72 Hawkeye box at Yeovilton yesterday and even at that price it's reasonable value...it is just gorgeous!
If you consider that peices of poo-poo (with an english accent) like Trumpeters 1:49 Sea Fury are rrp'd at £24.99 then the extra is worth it.
It's a big, wide world out there...so if it's all the same to you I'll just stay indoors!

It also appears to be a bit of a putty monster from the WIP threads on BM & ARC.  At that price I would at least have hoped for it to include wingfold options.

As for Trumpeter, they've got seriously greedy lately.
