Welcome to GreatNews!

The year 2003 is starting with a "Bang" as you will quickly notice from the new
releases: The
  "hot" items of the week were Tamiya 1/35 T-55A and Marder III Shells. Accurate
Miniatures also
  surprised us with the re-release of the 1/48 SBD-5 Dauntless expected early
next week. The
  B-25s are also available from the same company, and we are glad that this kit
was finally
  re-released as we were almost out of these beautiful replicas. Hasegawa
released another
  batch of new kits including a 1/48 Bf.109F-4 Trop and Spitfire Mk.VIII US
Army. Car Modelers
  will be glad to see the Tamiya 1/24 Enzo Ferrari, two new 1/6 scale
motorcycles Honda CB750
  and CB 750 OHC and many other releases from Fujimi, Aoshima, and Playing
Mantis (Polar Light).
  One decal to be pointed out is the Xtradecals on the 1/48 Hornet for the two
best sellers
  Classic Airframes kits. Trumpeter also released the highly expected 1/72
F-107A and we
  restocked the incredible 1/350 USS Hornet. Other interesting releases should
be noticed
  like the new AJ Press, Militaria in Detail, or Wydawnictwo books.  Italeri
also released
  a 1/12 F-16 Cockpit, 1/48 S-3A Viking and two 1/72 figure sets Cossack Cavalry
and Union
  Artillery. GreatModels has now "dropped" the Imex 1/18-1/35 Display cases due
to the
  impossibility to receive or ship these products without damage to the thin

We have received many "Special Orders" lines during the week: Lone Star Models,
DES kits,
  Verlinden production, SAM Publication books (still waiting for a "lost box"),
and Milicast
  to name a few. We are also expecting many more lines from foreign suppliers.
We have finally
  received the ENTIRE 'Naval Series' paint line from Testors. Ship Modelers will
be pleased
  with this Acrylic line, especially considering the many wooden ships arriving
at GMW next
  week. GreatModels now stocks over 20,275 products for the static modelers, and
  8,000 R/C products. The overall database now includes over 100,000s products
to choose

You might have noticed our new pricing policy, involving deeper discounts for
  "not in stock" and expensive products (over $200). It looks like many modelers
  started to take advantage of these aggressive prices as our January sales are
  better than our record-breaking December! We appreciate your continued support
  GreatModels and hope that we provided a spotless service during this past
