The October, 2016 releases are out. Here are some of my initial impressions:
IJN57, CVL Ryuho: This is a good-looking figure. Included are two sprues of aircraft that I can't identify in the photo - probably A6M and D3A.
UKN54, CA Berwick: Overall good; I've been waiting for this for a long time. My only reservation is that the turrets look a bit clunky (perhaps from same mold as older County-class cruisers). Regardless, I'm sending in my order tonight.
US108, 40mm Bofors w. 21/2 ton GMC SWB: Good models of the weapon and the vehicle. There are no figures for the guns in firing position, they will have to be taken from artillery figures.
US109, 21/2 ton GMC short wheelbase: Useful for towing light - to - medium artillery.
AC113, Messerschmitt Bf110. The shape of the engine and propeller mount identifies this as a C-through-F model. I don't think I can be any more specific from the photo. I was a bit surprised that GHQ provided two aircraft for this large a plane.
AC114, Mi-28: No photo posted yet, so no information beyond the identity and the fact that there is only one aircraft in the pack.
N578, ERC 90 Sagaie: This is a good-looking model. Five in the pack.
W109, SA-10 Grumble: The photograph looks good, showing the transport/launch vehicle in travel mode. There are only two vehicles in the pack, so probably two TL vehicles, no command vehicle, and no radar vehicle (disappointing, but understandable - the command and radar vehicles could be set up as far as 30 miles from the launchers and there are at least three different generations of radar associated with this missile system). It looks like the launch vehicle can be set up with the launchers elevated. Those interested may want to lobby GHQ for the appropriate 30N6 Flap Lid fire control radar/command vehicle and either 36D6 Tin Shield (for SA-10 Grumble) or 64N6 Big Bird (for SA-20 Gargoyle) search radar vehicles.
W108, BM-27 Uragan is listed now, but no picture yet..

Where's the BM-27 due for release this month? Not on this list, and also not listed in the catalog?! Sad

The SA-10 does look like the launcher is a separate piece, allowing for a launch mode set up. I'll be looking at a few of these in next years budget. Very Happy

I maybe mistaken but I believe Shapeways offers both the radar and command vehicles can be for the SA-10 system. I hope my memory hasn't failed me.

I went looking for pictures of the ghq 'Zis Bus' on line and found a plastic kit of a vehicle that looks like the GHQ model. The plastic kit is by AER models (reviewed at teh link below) which is now defunct. the kit was of a 1/72 scale 'ambulance' variant Zis-16S. Featuring the 'simpified' or 'production expediant' truck cab joined with the bus back half. Inside was fitted to accomsdate wounded.

model review:
http://www.onthewaymodels.com/reviews/AER/HTimmerman_AER_7206_08_09_28_41_58_preview.htm
also great photo here:
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Y0-JO9-KY2I/TtK-k56bf_I/AAAAAAAAAN8/9PY3FzmxFyA/s1600/DSCN8632.jpg

I was expecting GHQ might opt for the zis 5 variant featured on KFZ der Wehrmacht's site here - http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_english/Motor_Vehicles/Soviet_Union/ZIS/ZIS_5/zis_5.html. (3rd photo down)

I was surprised and glad to see the bus half joined on to the truck cab.

I was also pleased to see the Mercedes 3GA truck. what a wonderful 'old' looking truck

great work GHQ!

Might I draw your attention to this page, from Battlefront?

link removed

In 15mm resin, these T-55AM2 models are going to be very expensive and the army will likely require a lot of them. This east German army just screams to be done in 6mm though!

Great chance for you guys at GHQ to fill this gap in your line. I guarantee lots of people are looking. Smile

I have been meaning to prepare this list since GHQ's announcement of new releases came out but just got around to it. At the end of December, USN-93, the WWII USA small seaplane tender USS Barnegat (AVP-10) is scheduled for release. Ships of this class had a variety of appearances and we don't yet know which will be modeled. Here is a summary of possibilities:

The first two of the class, Barnegat and Biscayne, were characterized by a massive crane, apparently the same type as mounted on the much larger Curtiss and Currituck classes. They had two single 5"/38 enclosed mounts forward and a variety of smaller anti-aircraft machine guns (no 40 mm or 20 mm). I hope that this is not the appearance modeled by GHQ, as only two of the ships had this appearance and both were significantly remodeled during the war.

The most common appearance, and the one that I hope GHQ models, had a medium-sized crane, three single 5"/38 gun mounts (two enclosed mounts forward and an open mount on the weather deck aft), a quad-40 mm mount superimposed aft, two twin 40 mm mounts (one on each side of the funnel) and a varying number of 20 mm mounts (most commonly four twin mounts). The additional armament aft prevented bringing aboard larger seaplanes, but they could still perform their support function by lifting these aircraft onto a barge alongside. As best I can tell, at least 13 of the ships, including the rebuilt Barnegat, had this appearance.

The next most common version was common to most of the late-war-built ships of the class and some of the rebuilt early-war ships. This had the same medium-sized crane, a single enclosed 5"/38 mount forward with a superimposed quad 40 mm, the same two twin 40 mm mounts and a variety of 20 mm mounts (usually four twins). Much of the open space on the aft deck seems to have been occupied by working boats, small landing craft, etc. I have found illustrations of twelve ships in this configuration.

I have found photographs of six ships of the class that carried four single 5"/38 mounts at some time during their career. The two forward mounts were enclosed, the two aft mounts open. They also had two twin 40 mm mounts and a variety of 20 mm mounts. All of these seem to have had a significantly smaller crane than other versions.

Three ships appeared with two single 5"/38 enclosed mounts forward, four twin 40 mm mounts (two abreast the funnel and two aft), a medium crane, and an open working deck aft.

Two ships had an enclosed singe 5"/38 forward and an open 5"/38 aft. A quad 40 mm mount was superimposed forward and two twin 40 mm mounts were alongside the funnel. These ships seem to have had six twin 20 mm mounts rather than the more common four twins. The space that was normally occupied by a superimposed gun aft was filled with work boats.

Two ships had a unique appearance:
USS Mackinac (AVP-13) was built with a semi-fixed crane, two enclosed 5"/38 mounts forward, and two twin 40 mm mounts. It was later modified with the standard medium-sized crane and different armament arrangement.
USS Absecon (AVP-23) was modified as a training ship during construction with two cranes of the same sort use on modern light cruisers and a catapult mounted aft of the funnel. Two 5"/38 enclosed mounts were forward and four twin 20 mm mounts were alongside the bridge. Apparently no 40 mm mounts were carried.

Four of the ships were modified during construction as torpedo boat tenders (AGP). These had an enlarged deck house aft, an enclosed 5"/38 mount forward with two twin 40 mm mounts aft of this (instead of the single quad 40 mm mount found on some AVPs), two more twin 40 mm mounts by the funnel, and a second, open, 5"/38 gun mount on top of the deck house. They carried six twin 20 mm mounts rather than the more common four.

You may notice that the numbers above add up to more than the 35 hulls built. This is because a number of the ships had significant changes to their appearance during the war.

I hope that this guides others who will be making purchasing choices when GHQ reveals which version is to be modeled.

Don S.

December models are up, all with pictures!

Looks like Don got his wish with the Barnegat class seaplane tenders, with his
"common appearance" description, which I like too, More Guns! Very Happy

T-55AM2 released as a super bonus surprise. Nice job guys! That is quick work!

I'm sure you're going to capture a tonne of sales of those with the new Team Yankee book due out shortly. Way to strike while the iron is hot. I will order some I'm positive, as I want a horde of those with swarms of BRDMs everywhere.
