The kit is so new I don't think anyone knows about it not even a release date. I am curious what the price tag for this would be and if it comes with photo etch or not.
But further more the biggest question is how accurate is it. Being Trumpeter I expect it to have some huge errors. The 1:350 scale Battleship Texas model I want to get they horribly modeled the torpedo protection giving a ledge that scale wise would make it 6 times wider than it really is.
But none the less if they can release the 1/200 kit for not much more than the 1/350 minicraft kit priced at $67 last time I checked my sources. If it is say $80 - $100 I would buy it and I would buy two of them possibly three. I know one would be a lit up display model. Another one might possibly be a diorama sailing across the ocean with lights. Or maybe even a wreck. Either way would go great with Hellers 1/200 scale Le Suroit Titanic Salvager kit.
