I'm hoping that REVELL will have the modern (retro-fitted to it's WWII appearance) version available
before I hit retirement age.  ;)  Too bad they can't provide an actual time frame for the kit release.

Hi Gents,

Revell of Germany has announced the range of their new kits for 2017. Sorry, no twenty-one in 1/72 in sight. So we have to wait another year:

Anyone heard from Revell in this question, any news?

Sadly... There's no news at all, from REVELL.  :(  At this point, I'd have to say that there's no chance
of a 1/72 Type XXI (at least from REVELL).

Hi Gentlemen,


"The Modelling News" has posted the Revell kits for 2018:

Maybe Revell do it like Apple and will announce during November "one more thing" a XXI in 1/72 scale for example.

I'll bring up this thread again, asking anyone heard anything? Of course with Revell and Revell of Germany having problems, who knows.

Later Tim

That's a pretty presumptuous thing to say, unless you have a direct "in" at Revell and know more than the rest of us. 
Of course, you're free to believe whatever you want to believe.
Just sayin'  ;)

BTW... Revell and RoG are separate entities; the current problems with Revell (USA) likely have no or very little impact on RoG.
