It's always fun anticipating the next line of model kits for the coming year, in this case, 2021 and eventually, 2022.
Some new kits will be reissues, some would be a modified reissue (with altered , updated, and / or all new parts), and some will be an all new kit from the ground up.
With the new technologies for making kits today, such as CAD 3D plans, and slide-mold abilities, kits that wouldn't have been affordable just a few decades ago, can now be made for scale modelers everywhere.
Some model companies are digging deep in their vaults to release kits that haven't see the light of day for 30 or 40+ years. Round2, with AMT, MPC, Lindberg, and Polar Lights as their cornerstone brands, is constantly finding new ways to reissue old kits with an added bonus: better quality, tampo printed tires, and of course, better decals.
Revell has also been digging deep in their molds and has reissued many kits that have been dormant for quita a few years. Some kits have moderate updates to the mold, yet retain the popular features that modelers enjoy.
Moebius continues to produce new kits, or a variation of a kit they already have, ever expanding their model product base. Moebius is known for taking years to finally produce a new kit - but the wait is often well worth it.
Other companies like Hasegawa, Aoshima, and even Tamiya produce a new kits. At least one or two each year. Traditionally these companies reissue many variations of existing kit molds with new decals, a new modified part, which works well to broaden the appeal of their kits.
The scale model business has it's ups and downs, it's movers and shakers, but as long as they can supply their steady stream of new and exciting kit each year, modelers everywhere will be buying and building for decades to come.
