The Latest Scale Model News from the All Japan Model & Hobby Show 2014

Large-scale aircraft builders all over the world rejoiced when Tamiya announced its amazingly detailed “bubble top” 1/32 Vought F4U-1 Corsair, as a follow-up to last year’s release of the “Birdcage” version of this iconic aircraft! At the other end of the size scale, Tamiya’s 1/35 German Jagdpanzer IV (70) Lang joins their Military Miniatures lineup in November, and the 1/48 German 6 Wheeler truck Kfz.69 3.7cm Antitank Gun Towers will be released later this month.

Also in November, Tamiya’s 1/24 Subaru BRZ Street Custom heats up the streets, and their Fully Cowled Mini 4WD Magnum 2014 (AR) will heat up the Mini 4WD tracks!

Hasegawa, meanwhile, provides us with a 1/24 Nissan Sunny Truck (GB121) Long Body Deluxe in November, with the speedy 1/12 Honda NSF500 1989 WGP500 Champion arriving the following month. And December will be extra special for aircraft modelers, as Hasegawa gifts them with a special limited release of a 1/48 F-16D Block 52nd Advance F.F. Singapore Air Force Special!

Aoshima’s first new tooling of a British ship in 40 years, the 1/700 HMS Ark Royal, pulls into port in December, sporting a fleet of Swordfish torpedo bombers. Small-scale military fans will want to grab the amazingly detailed 1/72 JGSDF Maneuver Combat Vehicle MCF Prototype kit, and for spacecraft buffs, Aoshima brings out a non-scale replica of the Epsilon Launch vehicle. Both release in October.

And “KanColle” fans will want to invite the 1/700 Kanmusu Mamiya into their collection in December!

Pit-Road’s Girls und Panzer Type 89 Ending Ver. kit features a highly detailed tank and pre-painted figures of the Ahiru-san team to come along for the fun! Warship buffs will want to check out the 1/700 IJN Shimakaze Final Ver. in November and the Japanese Munition Ship Kashino in December. In October, Pit-Road’s 1/48 F-15J JASDF will come in for a light landing as well.

Her favorite lines are Hasegawa's Mechatro WeGo line, Meng's World War Toons Pinky line, and weird miscellany like Platz's bonsai tree kits. In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.

  1. Whoops! Brian here (the big guy in this video). That Kotobukiya Super X 2 I was drooling over in the video is actually a plastic model kit, not a die-cast item as I erroneously said. Guess I was too excited! Sorry for any confusion.
