I have spoken with Gary Hatherly of GT Resin, and he's intrigued about all the fuss over a resin conversion of the Dragon Bf-110 kit from the earlier versions to the iconic G-4 night fighter. He has said he might be willing to undertake our wet dream, but only if the following conditions are met:
- A minimum of 30 buyers would commit to the set (likely priced around $150)
- Those 30 buyers would be willing to plunk down a deposit (refundable if the project goes forward, but not if you change your mind)
- The group could provide Gary with the plans, drawings, details, etc. of what's needed (hey, he's a jet jockey, not a propeller head)
- We tell him what the conversion set should include (engine nacelles, rudders, nose, flame dampers, cockpit).
He mentioned something about the G's wings being larger than the earlier versions. I was not aware of this, and would recommend that he work off the last kit released, the E variant.
Let the dialogue begin.
