Trumpeter: Kits for July Release | Armorama™

Two modern era kits are slated for release next month.

This is partial text from the full article (usually with photos) at

I could definitely be talked into both of these.

As Trumpeter have done a 1/35 SADF Rooikat, I wish that they do 1/35 kits of the SADF Ratel IFV’s (all variants), the SADF Buffel APC ( grandfather of the modern MRAP) and the SADF Caspir APC.

Takom have done the 1/35 SADF Rhino G6 mobile artillery unit. How about a 1/35 G5 towed arty unit, Valkyrie and Bateleur wheeled rocket launchers.

Come on Trumpeter or Takom!!:pray:


Just when you thought you were out, they pull you back in. Going to have to add the S1 to my wish list.

Hmm, hope they release the earlier 2S6, as well, especially now that the alternative is OOP (since Panda went bust).

Nice additions to the 1/35 & 1/72 scale worlds.

I built the Panda kit a few years back. One of the most difficult kits I’ve ever put together. A veritable piece of shlt.


I’ve read that it’s overengineered like their BMD-1/2 kits, but didn’t realize it’s that bad.

An additional reason for trumpeter to backdate the announced kit, then (plus, hope they release their own BMD-1/2s after they already did the BMD-3/4/4M).

I had been hoping for a plastic Caspir/Warwolf for years.
