Just discovered this brand. I have a slight hunch that these are (updated) re-releases of the Euromodel Plus range of old. Can anyone confirm ?
TIA

I don't have a site of the company, but you can already look here:

It's related to a question Juergen asked last week about another manufacturer which is distributed by Tank Models. I don't know if Tank Models bought the molds or if they are cooperating with EuroModels but the two are definitely connected. On their web-shop, the models are listed under their our brand:
http://www.sklep.tankmodels.pl/14_tank-models
But if you click on the individual models, the page's title says "EuroModels Plus".

Some of the things are definitely new, like the Krupp Waffentrager, early Churchill IV turret and the German truck accessories. No idea if they updated the EuroModels but from the pictures, they look the same.
There is a little more information on their "About us" page located here:
http://www.tankmodels.pl/en/about-us/

Hope this helps,
Jeff

yes, now that you mention it, there are some new... or at least some non-Euromdel kits there.
I say "updated", because I saw somewhere that some kits contained metal barrels, while the Euromodel kits didn't.

TankModels is a polish (mostly braille scale) shop and rare models (rewsin and eastern brands + Modelltrans) distributor for Poland. But also from my knowledge They bought those Euromodel masters and molds. They re-relased their models with some upgrades and are announcing some their own, new production. Time will show us what will be new
