Combat Missions pits four elite squads comprised of six non-active military and law enforcement professionals against one another. Comprised of Navy SEALs, SWAT, CIA, Marine Recon, Delta Force, and Green Berets, squad members must use their strength, skills, and wits to compete for bounty — and, more importantly, for honor and pride. Check the USA site for showtimes.
This is kind of dated but the FineScale Modeler website has a list of models that will be released by Trumpeter in 2002-2003. The article says that all the kits are "new tool" unless otherwise noted.
Italeri has announced three new releases, all tanks. The first is the "Marines M4 Sherman", a PTO M4 with snorkel setup. The second is an "M1 A2 Abrams". And the third is an "M-60 Blazer" of Israeli origin. As far as I could find these kits/molds have not been previously released by Italeri. If anyone has any further info on these kits please comment below (read full story).
Ken Fortier has put together this list of new release armor kits. Some may already be available and others unreleased as of yet. We are planning to add a section to the site to track all new release kits (and perhaps all current releases as well - sort of a kit library).
We have added a new option here on the site. We will be sending out occasional (weekly or bi-weekly) emails outlining some of the recent additions to the site. It will come in the form of an eNewsLetter. The important news is that if you want to receive this eNewsLetter you will need to submit your email address (link is on the left side of the site). Registration to the site does not automatically sign you up for the eNewsLetter.
From The History Channel
On October 4, 1993, the world was witness to the graphic images of dead American soldiers being dragged through the streets in Somalia. What had been planned as a 30-minute military mission had erupted into one of the most intense gun battles of recent U.S. history.

Based on Mark Bowden's best-selling book Black Hawk Down, takes an in-depth look at the Battle of Mogadishu by presenting the first-hand accounts of Army Rangers, Delta Force members, UN officials, and Somali militiamen. Bowden shares his knowledge and research throughout the program, guiding the story from the arrival of the UN peacekeeping force through the events of October 4, 1993.

I am working on several new additions to the site and wanted to let everyone know about some of what's been going on here since the site went up in mid-December.
The 2002 IPMS National show will be held in Virginia Beach, Virgina by the Tidewater IPMS and the Hampton Roads Scale Modelers. The event will be held July 31, 2002 through August 3rd at the Pavilion Convention Center. All the details of the event are still being worked out but you can find the latest info on the official Web site, 2002nats.tripod.com.
I was sent this email from "Aer Colectie", a model manufacturer in Moldova (formerly part of the USSR). They list their new releases in 1/72 Armor as well as a Kursk (1/400) submarine. You can view the entire e-mail, just follow the link below.
I got this rather cryptic email. I hadn't heard of this scale or these manufacturer's before, but I figured someone might find them of interest. I believe the site of origin is www.russianscalemodels.com. The email follows...
AMPS (The Armor Modeling and Preservation Society) will be holding it's eighth annual National Convention. It will be held at the same location as last year, the Havre de Grace Community Center, on April 19-20, 2002.

Tamiya's new 1/32 Scale Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero Fighter (Zeke)
The masterfully designed 1/32 scale model of the A6M5 Zero shipboard fighter, with all its intricate detail and moveable parts has now been taken to the next level. Tamiya is proud to release a 1/32 scale model of the Mitsubishi A6M5 shipboard fighter that features realistic lights replicated with light emitting diodes, as well as propeller rotation coupled with synchronized engine sound.
Developed primarily for ground troop support, the 105mm equipped M4A3 was added to the Sherman series. Now, Tamiya presents a 1/35 scale replication accurate down to the casting of the round gun turret. The battle postures of 3 ground troop figures and the steady gaze of the tank commander convey a sense of tension felt during battle. The kit comes complete with heavy M2 machine gun and a variety of accessories. Pair this model up with the 75mm Gun Late Production version for creating the perfect diorama.
