SAirfix 1/35th Tanks!?

Are these not just the old Tamiya models re-badged as Airfix?

The consensus from across the internet is that they will be from Academy tooling. It's been put to me that the tractor will be a re-box of the Thunder Models kit.

Is there any info on the new Tiger 1 tanks in !/35th scale ? Are they old moulds from another model maker or will they be brand new ?

Academy are distributed by Bachmann in the UK, that certainly muddy's the waters a bit - oops.

I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, it was some ###### bringing me another loco!!
