Roman Cavalry (Italeri 6028)
Gaul Warriors (Italeri 6022)
Celtic Cavalry (Italeri 6029)
MDF laser cut Village Buildings (4 buildings & a cart ?)

6195 - Berlin 1945: Fall of the Reichstag playset
Soviet Infantry (presumably Esci 203/Italeri 6057)
German Infantry (presumably Esci 201/Italeri 6033)
T-34/85 (presumably Italeri 7515)
IS-2 Stalin (presumably Italeri 7502)
8,8cm Flak 37 AA Gun with crew (Italeri 7512)
Pz.Kpfw.V Panther Ausf.G (presumably Italeri 7504)
Pz.Kpfw.VI Tiger I Ausf.E (presumably Italeri 7505)
MDF laser cut Berlin Reichstag

6196 - Gladiators Fight playset
Gladiators with chariot & wild animals (Italeri 6062)
Roman Infantry (presumably Esci 224/Italeri 6047)
MDF laser cut Amphitheatre Ludus Arena

7078 - T-34/76 Model 1943 (Esci 8047)
7079 - Sd.Kfz.251/10 mittlerer Schützenpanzerwagen 3,7cm Pak (Esci 8053)
7080 - Sd.Kfz.251/1 mittlerer Schützenpanzerwagen with Wurfrahmen 40 (Esci 8022)
7081 - Churchill Mk.III (?, could be an error, since they already re-released Esci 8043 "Churchill Mk.IV" many years ago)

On the bright side, they announce a brand new Semovente da 75/18 in 1/35, NATO Pilots & Ground Crew in 1/32 and Spitfire Mk.I in 1/48... . :coffee:

re-release is better than no-release! ;)

I wonder how big the lasercut version (by Sarissa Precision I presume) of the Reichstag will be. Should be huge.

Meanwhile, Italeri released a few of their announced 1/72 kits.

6196 - “Gladiators Fight“ Ludus Gladiatorius gladiator training school playset
- Gladiators, chariot & wild animals, 14 figs in 11 poses + horses & beasts (Italeri 6062)
- Roman Infantry, 40 figs in 11 poses (Esci 224/Italeri 6047)
- MDF laser cut “Gladiator Arena“
Sadly, there are no spectators included. Hence one could try to populate the scene with appropriate Linear-B, Nikolai or similar figures.

7077 - Sd.Kfz.251/8 Ausf.C mittlerer Krankenpanzerwagen (Esci 8067)
7078 - T-34/76 Model 1943 (Esci 8047)


Furthermore, some sources are stating that Italeri designed a brand new T-55 kit, an in-house design, no Revell or other cooperation.
The same sources announce the re-release of a former Toxso kit, namely the German WWII schwere 10cm Feldkanone 18.
The original kit contains a schwere Protze 18 für Kraftzug limber and is quite good already. It seems the Italeri re-release will contain an alternative barrel which allows to build the 15cm schwere Feldhaubitze 18 as well. Both versions were widely used standard guns during WWII.
Excellent, but equally confusing news. Maybe one of our italian friends could shed some light on the validity of this?
Any further information would be greatly appreciated! :thumbup:

I believe the T-55 have started its life as a Toxso kit as well. On the Henk of Holland page, you can see that Toxso announced it, but did not go anywhere - hopefully this means we will see a Shilka further down the line.
