RG-31 MK3 by "Kinetic". I don't know anything about the vehicle and the modeling company...all I know is that this kit is new:

I did a search and didnt find anything on this b 17 so here goes.   Been out for a while now a very large 1/32 B-17   Made by HK Models..not cheap but quality never is.

HK Models also does a very nice 32nd scale B-25 and Gloster Meteor.  There is a prototype Lancaster in 32nd scale as well. If you search HK models 1/32 on Google etc. there is a photo from the B-17 prototyping phase with an employee holding an assembled 25 next to the 17.  The size of that monster is a little daunting and I collect 1/18 scale military toys.

This is a good time to be a modeler ... Has anyone started the 1/200 USS Arizona or the 1/200 USS Missouri yet?  I have the kit but to much other stuff in the works now.

I like that White 666 Cargo Truck.  The Normandy troopers on horseback look pretty interesting too.  There are so many great kits and figures coming out that it is hard to keep up.  Thanks for starting this thread Lars.

Mirror Models released another 1/35 U.S. Army vehicle. This Diamond wrecker seems to be well made from what I have seen online.

No highjacking at all, John. Could you please post a picture of the federal truck. I'm unsure about how this exactly looks like.

Some of these Vietnam figures look like they were taken straight from the movie "Platoon". 

 

The sniper team has me a little confused.... I'm not sure that is the most stable shooting position for a long distance shot.

That's a pretty nifty looking kit which will doubtless form the centrepiece of countless future dioramas. The Higgins boat looks good, but I'm not sure about the amount of rust given that they were quite "new" vessels at the time, plus the fact that the sides and rear were of plywood construction!
