We are starting to get some of the 2022 catalogues through and these are some of the kits that will be appearing throughout the year. The focus looks like being on German WW2 subjects and if you like Stugs you’ll be spoilt for choice, but there are some others that are worthy of note: a new Crusader MkII from Border Models and a Chieftain Mk10 from Meng should be popular.
There are also some re-releases due. Mainly old Matchbox kits from Revell (Particularly pleased to see the Wespe – I made the pattern for the pickaxe on the mudguard – my first job at Matchbox…. Hmmm. It’s showing its age). There are also some classics from Airfix and the Dragon SAS/LRDG Jeeps are to be re-released.
