According to Hannants, it looks like Amodel are going to be releasing an early model Tu-95 Bear (with the three rear turrets) in 1/72nd scale!  This has got to be the kit that's been on my want-to-have list the longest.  Although I suspect it won't be all injection-moulded (unlike what Hannants are saying), I still look forward to this kit with extreme anticipation.  I'm sure that it will be in the normal Amonster fashion, with the major parts such as the wing and fuselage in fibreglass-resin, and the other parts injection-moulded.  I suspected this might be coming as they recently did the Tu-116 (Tu-114D), which was the straightforward transport version of the Tu-95.  The Hannants link is here -

My all-time favourite aeroplane (and most-wanted kit of all time) is now available from Hannants for the low, low price of 173.33 Pounds Sterling ($270.74USD)!  Oh well, every silver-lining has its cloud.  And just in time for Christmas!  Now who in my family has the bob to buy me this as a present?  Here's the link, by the way - http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AMU03272 Get them while they're hot!

I'd love to see that, Massimo, and if it were as nice as their Pe-8, it would be a wonderful kit indeed.  I don't think I can wait that long, though.  If I can scrape the money together, this is a kit I have to have.

Regards,

Jason
