Here we are nearing the end of January and Nuremberg Toy and Hobby Fair 2019 just finished its first day. The Italeri and Academy 2019 catalogs came available before the show, both of which have been published here for your reference. With all of the news that came out of the Nuremberg show and the other news that came out in the last 24-48 hours, it made sense to update the Kit Release Tables early. I'm sure there will be more news coming, but any further updates will appear on our regular update this weekend.
I don't know about you, but we're in the midst of that Arctic air mass here in fly-over country Indiana, and the high today was - 9 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of -35. Last night and tonight, the lows drop to -15 degrees ambient and the winds will take that down much further. It was so cold here, that even the US Postal Service suspended operations for the day. If you're affected by this weather system as well, take care and be safe. In fact, just stay close to that warm hobby bench!
Before all of the hobby show news started flowing in, I was in the middle of preparing a first-look at the new AFV Club 1/48 U-2A 'Dragon Lady' kit, which will appear here tomorrow instead. Overall, the kit is awesome and is definitely NOT your grandfather's Hawk kit!
Stay warm and go build something!
