Italeri published their 2017 preview catalogue just now, a few hours before this years Spielwarenmesse in Nürnberg opens its gates.

1/72 stuff:

6180 - "The Last Outpost" AIW Battle Set, MDF laser cut Blockhouse with 3 figure sets (American & French Infantry and Indian Warriors)

7072 - Sd.Kfz. 265 Panzerbefehlswagen I (Esci re-release)

As always, there are all kinds of kits in various scales.
Sadly no signs of the eagerly awaited figures & kits from their 2016 online poll. But to be honest, that wasn't to be expected that soon anyway.

Best Regards

I was hoping for more ambition from them with the choice of buildings,but at least one there of interest to me. I would of liked to have seen an Afghan hill fort , the grain store at Essling maybe their Rorkes drift is stunning , I hope they continue down this route.
