There's a 1/72nd Shenyang J-31 Gyrfalcon due in October.

Trumpeter are releasing this month a 1/72nd scale M1117 too. I will be having some of these. Although the ACE kit of it wasn't a major pain for sausage fingers to build, I would rather build several of these as part of my task force, just to keep the blood pressure down  ;D

Trumpeter and Hobbyboss have just released theyre 2018 catalogue over on Facebook.

so far, i havent seen anything interesting from the trumpeter lineup, quite dissapointing  :-\
Hobbyboss however, is entering the 1/144 market with various Antonov AN-12 & Y-8/9 derivatives  :mellow:
on the bench:

-all kinds of things.

1/72 Tu-128 and Tu-128UT sound pretty good. Not my thing, but a 1/48 Fairey Albacore is off the beaten track.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
