Now that the dust has settled from the holiday period I though that I would list my top ten kits and products from the last year. Normally these lists are published at the end of December but I thought that now is as good a time as ever. Of course trying to pick just Ten items from all of the super new releases that we had last year is almost impossible for me so I have cheated a bit and sometimes chosen a kit to represent a whole range rather than just the kit itself.
So at Number ten I have chosen The Hobby Boss 1/35th Scale M4 High Speed Tractor. I first came across Hobby Boss when they released their range of 1/48th scale tanks, mainly Russian T34’s and KV1’s. Although these weren’t great sellers in my Ebay shop I have persevered with them because the kits are just brilliant. The M4 High Speed Tractor is typical of the quality that you get from them. The kit contains some 286 pieces including some beautifuly produced photo etched parts. The attention to detail in the kit even includes self adhesive spray masks for the canopy! The kit received a superb review in the January 2009 edition of Military Modelling so please be reassured that if you are not familiar with the Hobby Boss brand you will not be disapointed if you decide to have a go and build one of their kits.
At Number nine, are the new comers to the fantasy figure market, Mantic Games, with their Elves war Host. At
