Large-scale aircraft builders all over the world rejoiced when Tamiya announced its amazingly detailed “bubble top” 1/32 Vought F4U-1 Corsair, as a follow-up to last year’s release of the “Birdcage” version of this iconic aircraft! At the other end of the size scale, Tamiya’s 1/35 German Jagdpanzer IV (70) Lang joins their Military Miniatures lineup in November, and the 1/48 German 6 Wheeler truck Kfz.69 3.7cm Antitank Gun Towers will be released later this month.

Also in November, Tamiya’s 1/24 Subaru BRZ Street Custom heats up the streets, and their Fully Cowled Mini 4WD Magnum 2014 (AR) will heat up the Mini 4WD tracks!

Hasegawa, meanwhile, provides us with a 1/24 Nissan Sunny Truck (GB121) Long Body Deluxe in November, with the speedy 1/12 Honda NSF500 1989 WGP500 Champion arriving the following month.
