Hobby Boss
Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII

Hobby Boss is a Chinese company whose product line includes 1/35 and 1/48 armor, ships, aircraft, and figures. Their 1/35 line started with some modern German and Swedish tanks before breaking new ground with the M4 HST. The kit got good reviews, though to date there is no antiaircraft weapon to tow behind this variant as it is ammo bay is configured. More eagerly awaited is the M5, which can be paired with Italeri's 155mm howitzer and AFV Club's 155mm "Long Tom" gun and 8-inch howitzer.
