What’s new from Italeri for 2021, quite a bit. As I don’t want to spoil the surprise in this blog, so click on the link below to view their PDF:

Italeri have put together a good mix of periods. What did catch my eye was the Korean War marked kits.

They have some 1:72 and 1:48 aircraft in this range and some 1:35 armour. It will be interesting to see if they expand on this range.

There is no mention of these kits being new moulds. This makes me think they are reissues with new decals.

The 1:48 BAE Hawk T.Mk.1 caught my eye. Again Italeri do not mention if it is a new mould. This makes me think it is another re-release.

The 1:32 NATO Pilots, Ground Crew and Accessories look very interesting.

Having a 1:32 Revell Tornado ECR sat in the stash, I can see these new Italeri figures coming in very handy to complement the Tornado.

A plus point, these figures are new moulds. I’m really looking forward to see what they look like when the are released.

As we can see, quite a lot of Cold War subjects. Apart from the kits I highlighted at the start of the blog, oh and maybe the T-55 and T-62 1:72 scale tanks, there are not many I would consider adding to my stash. (But never say never!!).

It is great to see more kit choice from Italeri and long may this continue.
