Posted by kaleu on Wednesday, December 08, 2004 9:37 PM
I saw this list of kits on another site. Stevens International, the U.S. importer for Trumpeter kits as these kits listed as upcoming releases. No firm dates though. I certainly am hoping Trumpeter comes out with the SA-6 and MAZ-537 asap!!!

There was some WW2 stuff, a one off german assault gun based on the Tiger chassis called the Sturmer Emil? I hope somebody knows what what that is. The Kubinka museum has pictures of this vehicle. It seems like Trumpeter is following DML's lead in releasing kits of one off german tanks. I saw the pictures of the actual thing and it is huge!

Yawn. Not really anything that interests me. I'm still waiting to hear about that KV-1 that I heard about at the beginning of the year. Angry [:(!] Thanks for posting.

Too bad about the LAV, I bought my son the old Revell kit for his birthday.

That would be "Stubborn Emil", the 12.8cm Selbstfahrlafette L/61 or Panzerselbstfahrlafette V. 2 built and tested on the Eastern Front, 1942-43.

Don't know what the rest of the stuff is. Wink [;)]

Did a Google search for "12.8cm Selbstfahrlafette L/61" and found a number of links:

http://www.achtungpanzer.com/heu.htm
http://www.achtungpanzer.bos.ru/sel128.htm (in Russian)
http://home.netvigator.com/~thomplam/emi.html (this appears to be a resin kit)

A picture from AchtungPanzer.com:


I've never even heard of this particular vehicle before, let alone seen a picture! Looks very like a giant Marder.

To jessiahkinnamon: am I seeing things, or does the figure in your signature pic have no head?!? - is there some significance to this or is it just damaged? Big Smile [:D]

Interesting to see that Trumpeter is doing the exact same three JGSDF vehicles that Pit Road is releasing.
Or does Stevens import Pit Road as well, and those are not actually Trumpeter releases?

Wow, that's a large gun!! I must admit the LAV and the 12.8cm Selbstfahrlafette L/61 interests me some, but the rest is not interesting in the least (soley my opinion)

Brian,
Trumpeter and Pit Road occasionally collaborate on kits (like the JGSDF Type 89) and the 4 new ww2 French/German kits coming out now.

I think that it would be fun to build something so unique as a bunkerbuster bomb cannon on wheels..

must say that nothing really jumps out at me from that list...post war armour isn't really my bag, although maybe one day i'll do a challenger II and the self prop gun the brit army uses, if only to double the numbers we have of the things!!Angry [:(!]

Tongue [:P]
Kind regards, Nicholas

I'd have to say that I agree with the majority, nothing there that jumps out. I am concentrating on WWII at the moment, although eventually I'll try my hand at some ODS and OIF stuff .

That, in addition to the announced SCUD-A on IS2 chasis from Bronco. If these kits see the light of day, I'll be one VERY happy camper!!!

Seems that no one is interested in anything but WWII stuff. Too bad, as I think some of the Soviet stuff is so aggressive and sleek, just nothing else is as good, IMHO.

True for me anyway, about the WW II stuff. The only modern stuff that I like and now own, are the Abrams, Bradley and Humvee. I hope to one day get a Challenger II.
