Trumpeter 1/32 New Releases

I remember seeing a list maybe a year or so ago with upcoming Trumpeter releases, and I didn't pay too much attention to it because it seemed overly ambitious. I'm usually skeptical of these things anyway - they tend not to pan out very often (read ICM). Anyway, now that the SM-79, F4F, F4U, Hornet & Essex, F-105, et al... have all actually been released, I went to look for the list and can't find anything in print or online now. I vaguely remember a P-40, P-47 and a TBF in 1/32 being announced. Can anyone confirm these? Any word of an F6F? Any word on new ships?

Also is anyone buying, knowing they most likley wont ever build, but getting one of each to help ensure that they keep up with new stuff?

Wanting these yes. Actually plunking down a Ben Franklin plus, for them is another story. The only one I bought was the A-10 and that was only when Model Expo blew em out at 40 bucks. I am hoping to have enough of a down payment to get the SU-27 when that is released. I want one next to my 15.00 Revell MIG 29!

Cheers, Max Bryant

Trumpeter had their 1/32 P-40B on display at the Hobby Show that was in Japan last weekend. Also, the 1/32 MiG-3. These should be the next kits out.

I'm scarfing most of them - got the A-10, Mig-15, -17, -19, -21, and F-105G, and if luck is with me this weekend, I'll probably pick up the K5 Leopold.

The Su-27 tops my list of MUST's, and I'll be after the F4U-1D (maybe two), the P-38, the Avenger, the Harrier, the Wildcat, and who knows what else they have up their sleeve.

Yes - I'll build ALL of them, or die first. Trumpeter has been answering all my prayers in God's own scale (because, let's face it, God's own scale is HUGE...) and I plan to keep buying.
