Great to know you're attending, Bill. I for one am really looking forward to any new product info you might collect. What new and creative items are you concocting with the intent of draining my wallet?

Can you send someone over to Trumpeter's booth and find out the release date on their 1/48 Type VII?

Classic Warfare is taking pre-orders and they say April.

Thanks Gary, that's been listed a while. Stevens has it on their TBA list, but nothing else in the US.

The way Trumpeter likes to pack in a big box holding a lot of smaller boxes, I'm thinking a 1/48 U-boat is going to be a hefty shipping ticket from the UK. The place I paid $20 on the Revell 1/72 wants 75 pounds sterling on the Italeri Schnellboat freight. Yikes.

I'm pretty sure the news he is talking about is a whole 1/16th scale tank.... but then again I could be wrong

Yea, this time the news isn't from us though Nor is it from anyone you guys would expect.... Nor would it be the news you would expect either (though I know you all have been waiting too long). However, it will be VERY welcomed I can say that!

OK, one of the big companies, like Revell or Trumpeter, is gonna start making 1/16th scale RC vehicles. They're gonna start with soft skinned, the Deuce and a Half!

That's my guess/wish/fantasy/prayer.

What would make the most sense for a mfg to get into the market and make a hit.
probably a FURY. Or something modern and very recognizable, like a Bradley.

Yeah... a Bradley would be cool. Or even the M113.

Modern = yes
Fury based = no

Also not Trumpeter or Revell. You guys know who it is, but they haven't ventured into the tank market yet

Hmmm, that brings to mind some of the big players, like Hasegawa or Dragon. It would make sense for Dragon, already having a lot of 1/16 figures. It would be very cool to see a big name (Tyco?) come out with an Abrams.

Any way it goes, another big name making stuff we can spend money on is good news.

AE, losi, traxxas, wonder who it could be.
Modern sounds good. Maybe it is some type of LAV.
