Pitty they don’t sell the buildings seperately. Like the Russian Izbas or in this list the Pegasus bridge.

There is an highly detailed Benouville bridge, although you'll pay the price for it too! It won't stop me from buying it, though.

Zulus, do you want a MDM bridge or a better detailed resin bridge?

I am ok with MDF , I have seen one maybe two good quality bridges in the past but price and my clumsiness at breaking resin has put me off,but if the Italeri one is not very good, I may have to think again.

Well, the one i'm after for, is UK based. So that should be a piece of cake for you, exept the amount of money indeed.

Nice new houses and huts, but no new figures.

Dear Manstein,
it seems that you well informed in different productions. Do you know what happens with the results of the former figure-poll of Italeri two years ago? They wanted to produce new figures like Mexicans and Italians, but it seems that nothing followed this announcement.
I hate polls from producers which they ignore later on.

This last Italeri poll was implemented in september 2016 and many of us are looking forward to the elected kits & figures since then.

Zapatistas/Villistas Mexican Revolution
Italian Colonial Troops late 19th/early 20th century
Modern Italian Special Forces (Afghanistan & Iraq)
Fiat 626 truck
Semovente 90/53
Lancia 3Ro truck with mounted 90/53 gun
Adua-class submarine

Only visible for people with FB accounts I guess?

No idea if & potentially when Italeri will realise them.

Maybe some of our italian friends have better insight into Italeris business strategy?

Note that there has been an earlier Italeri poll around 2010 if I remember correctly.
Some long-desired results from that poll didn't materialise as well so far.
L6/40 light tank, P26/40 heavy tank, M18 Hellcat tank destroyer or M3 Stuart light tank for example.

But never say never. :thumbup: ;-)

I'm glad that they are reissuing Esci's Warsaw troops as the original box could reach quite a penny these days.
Many of the reissues are nice and fun figures.
