Default New Releases "May 2018."

Ton of new releases announced:




Not a bad list.

- This may be the F-117 that i finally get.
- Love all the P-51s.
- Will probably get the USN F-5 Tiger II

New tooling:

Apache longbow.

Unclear why you'd want to release 2 shuttles simultaneousy, but, well, there you go.

Seahawkeye, Iranian F-4 & F-5, and Top Gun F-5 for me.

I'll also get the Endeavour as I live in LA and got to see it trucked through Inglewood, and on display at Expo Park...also lived at Edwards AFB when it came out of the factory and did its first landing there, watched it from the wing of an NKC-135 on the TPS ramp. Was really cool for a kid to see.

Would have jumped on the F-117 but just recently scored an unopened HA5801 for 105 USD.

Will we finally see an end to those barrels of blue after this F-5 release?

Still waiting on the F-117 the Serbs took down

Nice to see these IRIAF releases, though I now have to choose between the F-5F and the F-4D ! The F-117 is tempting too. Helos come back is interesting too, hope HM plans more of them.

According to the other website, HM is going to release a black Saudi RF-5E Tigereye. I have been holding out from getting a F-5 Tiger II because I was hoping HM will produce a RMAF version. But the South Vietnamese version is good enough for me. Now I can have the F-5F and RF-5E too.

HM you are great. But I still hope you will produce an RMAF F-5!

Gonna go for both Iranian releases to go with my IRIAF Tomcat. And you know why I like seeing the Longbow? Because I am sure we will soon see this beauty:

Likely much better than the other manufacturer who goes with inconsistent scales, adds unneeded surface rivets where there are none, leaves models covered in oil, etc.

But the new, improved, FoV are also likely to release an updated AH64 at some point too; might make things more interesting than AF1

Nothing for me. Still looking forward to my PLAAF SU-35 and the SU-27 from previous months announcements 'thanks HM!'. Nice to see those two Iranian birds though. Should make one or two folks on here happy!
