The first of Eduard's new original releases for 2008 arrives next month in the shape of their eagerly awaited 1/48 scale Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat. While the earlier Fw 190 and Bf 110 have been quite complex kits, this time Eduard are aiming to make the Hellcat much more straightforward and aimed at the mainstream modeller. Although it may be somewhat simpler, we can still expect the company's attention to surface detail, as the accompanying photo of the fuselage of a test-shot shows. Also exciting for Navy fans, February sees the ex-MPM/Special Hobby Fulmar issued in a new form - the Mk.II, complete with the prominent cheek inlets and a set of 5 x colour schemes.

DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class - Multimission Destroyer: Advanced Technology Surface Combatants, USA

In November 2001, the US Department of Defense announced that the DD 21 program for the future surface combatant had been revised and would now be known as DD(X). The program focus would now be on a family of advanced technology surface combatants, rather than a single ship class.

A revised request for proposals was issued and in April 2002, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, Ingalls was selected as the lead design agent for DD(X). Northrop Grumman led the 'gold team' which included Raytheon Systems Company as the systems integrator.
