Keep an eye out for the great sculpts by Armorama.com member Tomas Castano
Minie' Ball Miniatures, a new line of Civil War kits is cast in 54-mm scale resin with many sculpted by world renowned figure sculptor, Alan Ball. These resin castings are done very well, with minimal cleanup required. The line has been introduced with 4 figures, Civil War personailty potrait heads (ideal for figure conversions!), and three types of US cavalry carbines (Civil War era). There's even a set of flying quail birds!
There has been a lot of praise and criticism (in equal measure) heaped upon Dragon Models Limited for their release policy. It has seemed, from where I have been sitting, that I was unable to publish a news story on their recent releases without a flurry of comments. The majority constructive, but some going a little further... With the release of this new set, Allied, and in particular U.S. Army Modellers, should find this new release absolutely invaluable...

Simply not enough work is done (on my part) to cover what is coming out in 1/72nd scale, to retify this and to 'mollify' the many braille-scalers out there, I have decided to do a 'Compilation' story looking at the recent releases from various manufacturers...
Good as they are, DML's SdKfz 251 series, in several areas, do need a touch of improvement. In some areas of the kit the (inevitable) thickness of the plastic really cries out for improvement. These new releases from the Polish company Part, should be of interest to anyone who takes their 251s seriously...

In this, the second of the reports on the 'renaissance' of Takahashi Modelling, attention turns to their plans for 1/35th scale figures....
There are many notable figure sculptures out there and of course many superb figures. In recent years, one of the most impressive range of figures have come from the Japanese company, Takahashi Modelling, not particularly for their subject matter, more for the quality of the sculpting. Now they're back. With a vengeance!!
While possible not the most interesting of releases to the general population, the June 2005 releases from Spanish manufacturer El Viejo Dragón Miniatures will serve to fill a gap in the 1/72 scale figure market and get modellers of this genre somewhat excited. These are the first of what promises to be an interesting new range for the Spaniards.
