Here's an interesting one... The new Dragon MBT-70...

 

I'd post a link but it doesn't seem to be letting me...

Freedom isnt free... it must be paid for. Too often it is paid for by the blood of patriots. For those who have paid their share, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

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.

Wow, nice, how would you like to use that in a diorama!

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.

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.

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

For the Viet Nam modeler:

Never have heard of "Bravo 6" before. The offer some incredible figures

http://bravo6.diorama.ru/

 

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!
