Brad,
Cheers, this thread has been up & running for a month, and nearly 1600 views - gratifying!!

Thunder woke me early today, and I found this on the ICM Facebook page icm b liberty.jpg
'Release in August'
As a fan of ICM, and their softskins, this really ticks the boxes, and WWI as well!
Dave
Just to reiterate - Feel free to add your spots - I just tend to cover the makers and subjects that interest me....................

From several 'local' newspaper websits..
I'd heard of sinking ships to create artificial reefs - now surplus tanks are being used for the same purpose off Sidon, The Lebanon. AMX-13s and some surplus APC have been used........... amx dump.jpg amx dump2.jpg amx dump3.jpg
How's that for a diorama idea?

I have this feeling my father will approve when I show him these photos. (During his national service, he was a fitter in the Dutch army, and doesn’t appear to have overly fond memories of the AMX-13 :smiling3:)

On the Academy Facebook page academy vindicator.jpg

Not a new model, but a reboxing of the Accurate Miniatures original
Given the huge glasshouse canopy, nice to see masks included!

All in 1/35. Love the top two - bet they both come in to the £100 bracket.
I wouldn't enjoy making a model I'd paid so much for! Just my fears kicking in! ( I'd be thinking ' Could have bought 4 models for the price of this!')

I remember a pic of M113s being pushed off a barge along our east coast for the same purpose some years ago. Thought it a terrible waste at the time. Now, not so much. Thanks again for the updates on model world Dave. PaulE

Italeri have announced a 1/35 T-34/85, with full interior, and PE details. At the moment there are only some rather poor CAD renderings, which I won't post - I'll wait for some more positive pictures.................

There were both metal & wood crates. Both very sturdy. Photos show piles of them looking intact. I believe the metal ones were for the Napalm type as it was slightly larger than the HE type. I've read where the basic load on 251s were 5 HE to 1 Napalm. PaulE
