i would love to get 3 or 4 Comets from Rubicon.
I have just collected a 1/6 scale Armortek Comet, and this is my current favourite Brit tank

I got quite excited when i heard that Warlord was doing one, then realised they doing it in resin & metal so i will not buy it.

Hoping that Rubicon can do one in Plastic.

Cheers
Tim

Thanks for all the ideas for a future tank kits.  We hear you loud and clear.
Definitely will try to do every single one on the list!

A good friend of ours popped into the studio yesterday for a live 3D sculpting
session. While taking a break, he sketched a prototype we are working on...
and autographed it when finished. We are loving it!



Enjoy!
;)

Has a T26/7TP/6 ton vibe.

Not sure about the tank though.

Film4 at the weekend for those in the UK.(edit: or not).

You beat me to it. A T-26 most likely and if that's the case I feel some Russian vehicles in my future.

What I was wondering was if the midday deadline was not traditional elsewhere.

We cannot discuss more than what we had already disclosed.
We now have specific guidelines on when a project can be posted
for preview and comments.  Enemy spies had been lurking around
our HQ for our top secret projects... need to be more diligent!

How about releasing a Maus ? I know a  limited edition one was  released in 28mm  resin last year , but I think a plastic kit of both versions would probably go over well with the late war / Conflict  47 / Weird war types .  I'm not really a fan of limited produced WW2 vehicles , but 3 different kits are coming out this year in 1/35 , one with interior !!!! , and that's sort of peaked my interest . And if I get one in 1/35 , I got to have one in 28mm as well , just for diorama purposes





This is the V1 Maus which the Germans blew up . The turret from this vehicle was mounted on the turretless V2 hull and it now resides in the Kublinka museum  in Russia . Lots of great pictures on the net and a Chieftain's Hatch video walk around ( WOT ) as well as a Russian walk around on youtube

Interesting thought, and I would buy one if it was not silly money.

It's a fascinating vehicle but as a prototype that never reached the army I think it would be very low on my priority list.

I don't really get the fascination with the Maus.  It was a dead-end design that never saw service, and it's actually a rather boring vehicle (all those slab sides, devoid of detail).  I'd also hope it was very low on Rubicon's to-do list.

I guess there will always be an interest in the biggest, most powerful weapons and think that is part of the attraction with the Maus. However for me wargames that presuppose the war continued beyond 1945 are in the fantasy realm and isn't where my interest lies. Doesn't make those that enjoy the 'what ifs' wrong of course.

But if you want to see what happens if a Maus is not enough, have a look at Rich H's thread on LAF:
