Trumpeter to shelve Wellington

Not sure if this is old news but for those waiting for Trumpeters Vickers

1/48 Wellington you'll be waiting a long time.

Shame, I was looking forward to re-doing one of my first ever kits.

Sort of like the 1/48 Sunderland and Dornier Do-24 promised by one of the French outfits. I think they start these rumors as a sort of "market research" thing to see how much interest the rumor generates before investing any time or money in real molds. The latest "promise" is a

1/48 scale Handley Page Halifax.

Squadron has it pictured on their "coming soon" page. I doubt they'd take part in rumourmongering (at least intentionally.) If FM has it that far along they'll release it. Trumpeter OTOH may have bitten off more than it can chew. hth

This discussion of vapourware reminds me of a cartoon in "Model Railroader" originally published in the '50s. The boss calls the engineer into his office and says, "Maybe we should get around to producing that 2-10-8-6-4 we've been advertising for the past year."
