Well eBay is going to be hacked off 

We have a re-release of the sea vixen and Severn class lifeboat 

A new tool 1/72 buccaneer 

A coastal command wellington

And a fillet less p51d

A new tool 1/48 tiger moth and drum roll 1/35 scale armour! 

As well as the previously mentioned spitfire and hellcat

I'm wondering who the 1/35 moulds belong to, because it's not listed as New Tool.
I might go for the tractor, but the rest is mostly boring Panzerkamfwagonkriegermaschinenry *.
3 tank US tank destroyers but not one an Achilles which would have been tempting

* Yeah I know, it will sell by the bazzillion but it's still boring :P

A quick Google points me to academy on the tank destroyers which makes the achillies a strange omission as that is a lovely kit. If they're all academy then we have a bit of a curates egg. The tiger isn't bad. The tank destroyers aren't bad. But the Mk.iv will be a rip off of the early seventies tamiya kit. Dunno about the hetzer or the Panther

The consensus seems to be the armour will be Academy. Tony Surridge has suggested that the tractor is probably from Thunder Models.

Been trying to get a look round the Airfix website all evening but it keeps spitting me out. Must be busy :( Plenty interesting kits from them for 2019 including the Bucc and MiG-17.

One question answered that has intrigued me for a while. Some of the US jets tooled up during the Palitoy ownership are putting in a reappearance.
