Not very new because it is a few months old now, Strelets have a French 65mm Schneider mountain gun 1906 in their set of French Foreign Legion Artillery. Plastic Soldier Review says this about it:

"Many of the new artillery batteries used the somewhat aged 75mm M1897 field gun, but the very mountainous terrain in which the Legion often had to operate meant the use of mountain guns was a natural choice, and this is what we find in this set. Here we have the 65mm Schneider-Ducrest Canon de 65 M Modele 1906, a mountain gun that could be stripped and carried on six mules, and was widely used in the colonies. As usual the model here is simplified to a degree, as it only comes in nine parts, but what there is could be described as pretty accurate in terms of basic shape. Certainly the brakes are missing and the weight-saving holes in the trails are not cut right through, but we thought this was a pretty reasonable model for such a set, and quite nicely made so as to be fairly easy to build. As always with Strelets there are no instructions, but it is simple enough."

Another not-really-new release is the pigeon loft based on the 'Ole Bill' by Roden, released in September 2020.

Has anyone ever filmed or photographed a master being made from scratch? I was looking at the complexity of the stairs and safety rail on the B-Type sprue and wondering how they do it. Has our friend Baldwin ever kept a photographic record of work-in-progress? I think it would be fascinating.

James, 

I made couple of masters by myself. Some of them were fully manual but since a year I am doing it with 3d printing. The most important things is to be able to imagine how to split the final model into a parts that are castable with resin based on silicon forms. It is not an easy task regardless you are working with 3d or fully manual..

I just received it today. The 1/72 Skoda 30,5cm M1916 from Hauler: inbox

All the parts are made fromgre resin. Without bubbles, holes etc. High quallity casts + PE Parts.

Clear manual

Over all: highly recommended!IMG_20210412_221242.jpgIMG_20210412_221405.jpgIMG_20210412_221422.jpgIMG_20210412_221453.jpg

I hope that it is pictures of the A7V during construction and not the finished model as there are to much faults on it. Both small and big. What scale is it?

It is an stl file, so it can be any scale.

I understand Plant models also has a 1/72 scale model of the Austrian 30.5cm M11 howitzer how does this kit compare with the Hauler kit?

Note I would like to build it as a KUK armee weapon I have some 1/72 scale Hat KUK Infantry that need some artillery support.

Planet model has M11 type whereas Hauler issued M16. These two are completely diffrent constructions. However, both models are top quallity

Yes, EaglesNest have some interesting WW1 subjects, but they still have limited shipping to many countries, mine included.

Strelets are preparing a "WW1 French Field Kitchen" set:
http://www.strelets-r.com/Pages/Set.aspx?SetID=416&M=M

Which model is this to represent? Doesn't look like the cuisine roulante models I can find pictures of, which have covered and central "chimneys".

The quality of the few Strelets (artillery) kits, and the many figure sets, has dramatically increased during the last years, these figures being a good example. Regards, Pat

Those figures do look nice, but I've often found that the quality of the actual Strelets production sets strangely seems quite far removed from that of the masters, unfortunately...
