Re: Could we finally be close to a new M-42 Duster kit...?
No argument there, Jon --- we've been teased on the Duster for, what, ten years or so, so we really can't hold our collective breath...? And I know that there are any number of kits which have received stock numbers, gotten the box art and catalogue treatment and have still never seen the light of day...and yet, I have a feeling that we're actually going to see this kit this year. Hey, who knows, maybe Dragon will jump on board and kit the Duster before AFV Club releases theirs!
I've got the Tamiya kit, but would love to keep it in the box in favor of a newer release... I've seen some great work done on the Tamiya Duster, Gino G's work coming to mind.
Fingers crossed for more Vietnam-era subjects from AFV Club and other manufacturers.... We need a new M113, M48A3 etc! Gotta have lots of new subjects to place around Bravo 6's figure line!
