RCN News - - Contents - By Jim Bates

A few new kits of in­ter­est to Royal Cana­dian Navy mod­el­ers are on the horizon for next year.

Trum­peter plans to re­lease a 1/350 HMCS Huron G24 Cana­dian De­stroyer (1944) in Jan­uary 2014. The kit will con­sist of over 260 parts in­clud­ing photo-etched de­tails and dis­play stand.

Also due early in 2014 is a 1/32 T-6 Texan from Kit­tyHawk Model. Test shots look quite de­tailed, though the first box­ing will prob­a­bly not con­tain Cana­dian de­cals.

Even more ex­cit­ing news is that Kit­tyHawk Model plans to re­lease a 1/48th McDonnell F2H-3/-4 Ban­shee kit. Only CAD draw­ings have been re­leased, so the kit will prob­a­bly not ap­pear un­til mid to late 2014.

To go with the Ban­shee, Canuck Model Prod­ucts with be re­leas­ing RCN de­cals in 1/72 and 1/48 for the Ban­shee, as well as two sets of mark­ings op­tions for the CP-140 Aurora in 1/144. Step­ping out­side their usual Cana­dian re­mit, they will also is­sue a 1/72 sheet for the Royal Aus­tralian Air Force P-3 Orion in 1/72.
