I am not certain if this is fake or real (found it on FlickR first, but then on scalemates, too) - in both cases, it's nice: mecha ordnance from Trumpeter in 1:100 scale for/from the Chinese SF movie "The Wandering Earth".








Great additions to my 1:100 Macross kit collection, esp. the Destroids!  ;D

That would look good in any armor collection, wearing any nation's colors.  Hmm...perhaps Nova Anglia or Tsingtao :wacko:

It's probably the same CAD design, just scaled up/down?

Something really new: an 1:72 F-106B:



Announced for April 2018. according to HLJ.com (https://hlj.com/product/TRP01683/Air). Pricey, though, at around EUR 30,-.  :-\

Cheapest (UK supplier) one of these I've seen (and ordered) at 24.50+free postage:
