For all you 1:48 scale nuts like myself, just heard this is gonna be released soon. A definite must for my Brit/Soviet force when we play Chain of Command.

A must-have indeed.

I really hope Tamiya keeps releasing these 1/48 scale gems

Me too! They've discontinued a ton. It's heartening to see this new release.

Is there a list of what has been discontinued?

Just go to the Tamiya site…it pains me to see all the those kits no longer made…but if you look hard enough, you can find them.

I believe, as with much of their 1/35th, they are looking to redo some of those discontinued items.

Like many of the large manufacturers, they cycle their products through. They are rarely OOP for long.

I'm very pleased to see that. The Churchill was one of the most common WWII armoured vehicles not available in 1/48 (another obvious gap is an M3 or M5 half track).
The Tamiya kits do seem to come back into production every few years. It took me a couple of years to find a Panther, but I've found everything else easily enough (in the UK).
