I would say that the very fact tthat the forgeworld models are still available is a suggestion that there isn't a plastic one in the works. When the trygon, baneblade and shadowsword were done in plastic their resin counterparts dissapeared a couple of months before the plastic releases. If they are talkign about plastic thunderhawks for may then the forgeworld ones should have already vanished from their site.

The model's been around since 2008, so I doubt it's a Thunderhawk-related release. I'd say it was a flyer release, seeing as there are no Baneblades or Titans and lots of flyers.

The Thunder hawk is pictured with a turbo laser destruction which is one of the option for the FW kit, still stated in the blurb on FW site but not pictured in the current set of pictures on the site, but both pictures in IA Aeronautica have it.

Lends some credibility to the new Apocalypse roumours

While this isn't conclusive about whether one is being released or not this is definately a FW thunderhawk,
it is the one shown in white dwarf when apocalypse was first released


(additional) just had this forwarded to me
