Very cool kits! Both looking great!
Really like the IJN BB Kaga and in 1/350 scale, incredible!
I’m two times as impressed!
Looking great in 1/700.
Cool subjects, B65 rocks too. Good to see that available too.
I’ll pass on all of these
Oh wonderful, from paper Panzers to paper warships. I hope they continue with similar projects from other countries (and not just Germany); G3s, Lexington/Saratoga as battlecruisers…
wait what？paper？I believe you have mistaken the manufacturer.
“Paper Panzer” is a term used to describe those vehicles designed by the Third Reich which never made it beyond drawings, mock-ups or incomplete prototypes but nonetheless are produced in quantity by kit manufacturers, a process accelerated by their inclusion in some computer games. The “paper-” prefix has also been used describe other projects which similarly did not make it to even a full prototype. I am using the phrase in this manner rather than indicating the material from which the kit is made. Your confusion is understandable as I understand there are printed paper models of some of the vessel I referred to.
Oh, you mean “project”，As I konw,They are planning to produce:IJN 88 project and TaishoFuso/Ise class, USSR 7 class ,USN Fletcher/Somers/Sumner class and Missouri 1991
Any idea if the German “Battlecruiser O project” is on this to produce?
Likely just another terribly inefficient German WW2 era ship design but the lines of the ship look pretty good.
Exactly, one which did not come to fruition in the form as it was originally envisaged. Kaga was completed as an aircraft carrier while Tosa was never completed but used as a test item before being scuttled. Similarly, of the five French “Normandie” class battleships, the first four were launched incomplete and later scrapped; the Bearn was in a less advanced state of construction and still on the slips so was completed as an aircraft carrier. A kit of a Normandie completed as a battleship would qualify as a paper project, but a theoretical model of one of HMS Hoods scrapped sisters completed as an aircraft carrier would not (it would be a “What If”) as there was never an official intention to do this.
Wow! H Class battleship too! Haven’t kept up and didn’t know about those.
There are many things that I don’t konw about HMS and MNS,But I’m really eagerly anticipating the Vangurd and Richelieu by Flyhawk
