This is the final issue of 2017 (albeit our January 2018 issue will be on sale just before Christmas), so I thought I’d review some of the contenders for my kit and manufacturer of the year. We’ve had some pretty awesome kits released this year: Trumpeter’s large modern Russian artillery and rocket kits, MiniArt’s superb T-60 series, Takom’s FV432 series, IBG Models’ Scammell, 1/72 kits from Flyhawk and, to end the year, Meng Model’s Panther. Of the kits we’ve seen in the magazine, I have to say IBG Models’ Scammell is a wonderful kit, but, out of nowhere really, Academy’s K2 Black Panther, in terms of a pleasurable out-of-the-box build, is hard to beat. In terms of manufacturers, all of the above have established themselves as major players with their plastic kits, but I have to say two small resin manufacturers stand out for me, both in terms of subject and the sheer quality of their kits and accessories. The first is Korean-firm DEF Model, whose resin wheels and other accessories (not to mention their growing figure range) are always superb. Second, we have John Osselaer’s wonderful Paper Panzer Productions range of ‘Panzerwaffe ‘46’ vehicles and accessories. We’ll be seeing much more of both manufacturers’ work in the pages of MMI over the next year.
