We're all interested to know "what's next" so this is where Tracy, Nicholas & the team will be able to share with us what's on the bench & the progress it's making into full production. But please be patient as things don't always go smoothly!

A-11 Matilda I (yep, the ugly one!)
M4 Sherman (the 'British' model used at el Alamein - direct vision slots, early track rollers, cast hull...)
A-34 Comet

I agree with Jaime about the Comets, Matildas and M11/39. I'd like to add Hetzers to that list. And the hatches should be able to open.

Agree with all of the above, also the Ferdinand/Elefant and the Pz III Ausf F. Some postwar armour would be nice too.

How about a WW1 Mk I/IV British tank? I've not seen any quick build versions of these.

My wish list.

M8 Greyhound (it's impossible to find and it's out of stock. Italeri had this kit but it was put out of stock very early. If you try to find and buy it in internet you won't find at all it's very demanding though.)

Sdkfz 251/1 Ausf.D (It has been one of the most WWII successful vehicles during the war and the most german SPW built during the war. It was built from early 1943 and developed with the purpose of halving the number of angled body plates, simplifying the design and thus speeding up the production. D models can be easily recognized by their single piece sloping rear, with flat doors. During the war, there were built approx. 15,252 vehicles and there were also 23 official variants, and sundry unofficial variants as well.
Armourfast has the Ausf. C also available in two versions(Sdkfz 251/1 and 251/9 Ausf.C) and I've thought to release the Ausf. D could be an opportunity to match the offer with both models , Ausf. C and D just because there isn't this model in other brands. (In fact, Hasegawa has Ausf. D but it is very expensive if we compare the prices from Armourfast with Hasegawa and Armourfast always includes two kits in a single box and Hasegawa just only one). Both versions, Ausf. C and D and it's versions were widely used in all theatres of war by the german army.

SdKfz 250/1 Leichter Schutzenpanzerwagen (armoured troop carrier). Sdkfz 250 was as well as Sdkfz 251the most successful combat vehicle platform of WWII. The Sdkfz 250 has a wide range of versions to be built with the same platform for example the SdKfz 250/9 Panzerspähwagen (reconnaissance vehicle), Sd.kfz.250/8 w/7.5cm k.51 l/24, SdKfz 250/6 Mutinionswagen and SdKfz 250/7 80 mm Granatenwerferwagen (mortar version) among others. It had also it's Ausf. D version in the same way as Sdkfz 251. Sdkfz 250/3 was one of the most famous german halftrack because it was used by Marshall Erwin Rommel during the Afrika Korps campaign as well as in all theatres of war.


Schwimwagen, Kubelwagen and Opel BlitzThese vehicles were also the hallmark of the german army during the war and widely used in all war fronts are almost difficult to find in others brands.

Stug Ausf B,C,D and F.

Sherman M4A2 76 mm W (It was widely used by the Soviet army during the final stage of the war)

Sdkfz 222\223\221

Soviet SU 122. Currently Armourfast has SU 85 and SU 100 and they're very similar.

How about some French tanks

There seems to be plenty of manufacturers covering the German tanks.
