More goodness from Hobbico?

Seen at the 2013 Nuremberg Toy Fair, Hobbico booth. A Fletcher class destroyer and behind it a cool looking modern style cabin cruiser.

That Fletcher looks very like the one KY Models showed to me at SIME a few years back but that never went to market.

That is most definitely KY's model that they developed for Graupner back in '09 but for whatever reason never went into production. That trawler behind the Vela 1M is also from KY, as is the cabin cruiser & the fire boat. Not at all bad looking from that photo Patmat posted in your other related thread.

I believe its 1:100. Here are a few shots I was able to get of it backstage at the 2009 SIME.
