Tim and Jan nailed it!

Still waiting for Rodney/Nelson though

I have been on Trumpeter's website and cannot find the 2018-2019 catalog. Any idea where to find the listing/catalog of their new products for 2018 & 2019 ?

My only concern is the lead time between announcements and releases.
Trumpeter seem to have become slower and slower at this.

One example might be the 1/350 Nelson & Rodney.
I can't recall when they were first announced, but I reckon it may have been late 2014 or early 2015, yet still nothing.

The Exeter & York were in last year's catalogue, so who knows when they'll come into reality.

Well if it takes too long for Trumpy to get it done, just reach in the stash instead.

Aside from 100+ other kits, I have 10 capital ships in the stash and two in the dockyard and one in the post. Im done. Im too tired...you know what I mean ? I cant take it anymore. Please Trumpy, make it stop...

Exactly with the Rodney/Nelson. Had it scheduled for 4 years ago. Then they went and upscaled it to 200. Only thing they have done with it since then is left it in catalog. Also listed Baltimore cruiser class. Kinda lost my faith in Trumpeter. They will go out and release a bunch of Chinese ash and trash ships before we see any of these I bet. Schleswig -Holstein...no thank you do a Baden or decent Konig class (LOL no sense asking for 350 scale british WW1 bb)

LOL! I completely agree! God knows I appreciate new kit releases, but if no new kits were EVER produced there are enough already in circulation (and in my own stash, for that matter) to keep me happily building for the rest of my days!
