  1. I do remember that Battle Axe came out with one but good luck finding that. I had at one point making the nose like the late Rumpler by WnWs but the front of their nose was much too big to put on an Albatros. I wouldn’t mind having at least one. I just broke down and ordered a Roden Albatros lll OAW.

    Do 17

    I can see an open box review of the 17. “Well, folks it looks like, uh, looks like an airplane. Lots of very good lines with little injection marks. I just can’t figure out what it’s supposed to be. It kind of looks World War 2ish, and someone included WW2 German markings. I noticed no one put their Manufacturer’s name on the box or their instructions. I wonder why. Is it a JU-something or other? Why didn’t they at least put a sketch or a picture of the completed model on the box? Strange. Looks like a fat pencil. With a double tail. Kinda like a Dornier, forget I said that. Did they make a Junkers with a twin tail? It should be a big seller, but I’ll admit, if they didn’t give it to me for free to review it, I certainly wouldn’t have gone out of my way to buy it, but that’s me.I guess I’ll build it, if only to see if I can make rhyme or reason out of this kit. At least we can run it up a flag pole and see if anyone salutes it....”

    I’d even be happy with an enlarged Airfix 1/72 Do-17 at this point. At least I think it was Airfix. We have yet to see a FW-200 Condor.

    There is a Do-17 that was recently raised from the English Channel that was externally in good shape. You can see it on YouTube.

    As far as I’m concerned, they pretty much put a Do-17 conopy to make the Ju88, they might have done that inside also, we don’t know, but I’d be happy to see a Do17 with a Ju88 interior. To me it’s the exterior that counts, as long as there is some kind of interior although I can remember being happy when Models only had a seat, stick and a plain instrument decal. Some even had only a pilot’s shoulder and head. It was the outside that mattered. I still keep my models closed up. You don’t see althat much through a closed canopy..

    Of course it’s taken forever to see a C-47 or a B-24.

    So you feel better So you feel better, one is on its way, just don’t know from where, or when. Maybe from this posting, some company will realize it, especially since they brought one up from the channel. Someone did say once that there were none in existence but WnWs is producing WW1 bombers for which none exists today.

    We’ve seen them in 1/72, anyone think it possible to see one in 1/32?
  9. I don’t have the kit, but has anyone tried Future Floor wax?
  10. I saw one in German markings at the Musee de Militaire in Brussels. I was surprised at how small it wasA model in 1/32 won’t take up very much room.
  11. Use superglue gas to frost all the windows and state that it’s early morning due, so you don’t have to super detail the interior.
  12. The problem is that Wikipedia isn’t a very reliable source, since anyone can contribute to it.
  13. It is listed in the catalog of engines released by Engines and Things. They state the 57 as being used for both the 47M and the prototype N. Right now I’m about 500 miles from my reference library, so I went on line.
  14. It’s not that much bigger than a F-105 , yet the 105 was a good seller.
  15. Also look how obscure the HP O-100 and the HP O-400 are and how big, but they are in development. I remember complaining about a 240 Howitzer never being released in large scale and everyone saying it was too large yet TWO companies released a much larger WW2 German Rail Gun. Funny how no one puts any stops at producing anything NAZI, but when it comes to equipment US soldiers used and died on in WW2, oh its too big.
  16. The only 107 I ever saw was my 1/72 scale one I had in the sixties.
  17. You are absolutely correct, but I still remember it as being the most common jet in the sky, but guys like me are a dying breed, and if it hadn’t been for modern eye surgery, there probably be none of us left building any models. Just like I see less and less of us marching in Veterans’ Day Parades.
  18. One company has released a 1/32 DC3, and another is releasing a C-47, but we now have much larger B-17s Lancaster’s, and Liberators, so why not a 101?
  19. When I was a teen I the ‘60s, I saw an A-26 parked with a B-25J at the Detroit City Airport. Talk about cool. The A-26 model may not be perfect, but how many of us are going to be able to tell. It was not all that common of an airplane, even in 72 and 48th scale, so I just might have to have a Havoc with a Mitchell.
  20. What makes even less sense and also decades too late are 1/24th cars, trucks, and tanks and 1/25th cars, trucks and tanks.
  21. Yup! That question is many decades too late.
  22. The name of Quarter Scale for 1/48, has been used since Aurora Models came up with it in the 1950s, long before RC, when the only flying models were U control, in which 1/4 size airplanes would have been too large. Back then the only RC Models were being used by the military for target practice.and we have been using quarter scale for 1/48 ever since and decades before 1/4th scale RC, which has never been called quarter scale. Technically you are right, but with 1/32 bing used for planes and 1/35 being used for vehicles and helicopters, who says modeling is logical?
  23. Plus Models in Japan have a 1/35 M60, and ET Models makes a 1/35 Detail Set for the M60 in 1/35.
