  1. ^^People, including myself, have no interest in badly mismanaged forays into 1/32 scale.

    1/32 I-15 bis?

    It hasn't been announced, but given the releases that have been done so far by ICM and the ones that are planned, I would not put it past them to release the I-15.

    1/32 B-29?

    I'm living proof of that point!

    1/32 B-29?

    If it's done "right", I would be in for one. As is stated already in this thread, I would not get one just because it's available.
  5. ^^ Thread drift is very prevalent in here. It always starts out about the intended subject. Then someone makes a post about what they wish ZM would release and how we don't need another Bf 109G, etc. and then it becomes a "wish list" thread eventually. Seems like all threads left to their own devices start turning into "wish list" threads.

    HGW A-20G Havoc - IN PLASTIC!!!

    ^^ wrong thread.

    ICM Gloster Gladiator

    Some rods and some wires, perhaps. My guess is that those landing and flying wires were probably aerodynamically flattened wires that the RFC/RAF came up with for the first time during WWI. They appear wider than normal because we are seeing them on their flattened sides. The crossed items between the wing struts and connecting the flight controls are rods.

    HGW A-20G Havoc - IN PLASTIC!!!

    Not wanting to derail this topic too much, but does anyone know why WNW has ostensibly been able to achieve this desired oil-canned look on their Lancaster while it was beyond HKM's capacity? Is it something beyond the capacity of computers but if you literally use a more "hands-on" approach, the effect can be achieved?

    HGW A-20G Havoc - IN PLASTIC!!!

    I'm not sure what "laced" means, but I did notice the stressed or "oil canned" appearance of the wings around the rivets. Looks like someone else besides WNW is taking this approach to larger aircraft models.

    Copper State Models 1/32 Nieuport N. 17

    I do like having a plethora of stickers to choose from when it comes to my Nieuports.
  11. ^^This confirms what I thought I was seeing on the CAD images and photos of sprues of the kits. WNW needs to move over now. Someone else is at the table now.

    ICM 2018 1/32 Release

    Nice, indeed. I am guessing the landing gear are deployed on the boxart because it's "bombed up" and hasn't dropped its payload.

    Trumpeter 1/32 P-40F Soon to be Released??

    And don't forget their "A" effort on the Fairey Swordfish that followed on the heels of the Tamiya 1/48 effort.
  14. The problem that some might find with all Hasegawa in-line-engine subjects is that there is no engine to model in the kit. For this reason I believe all Hasegawa subjects of 1/32 scale in-line-engine subjects are roughly like building scaled up 1/48 kits. If you don't care about displaying the engine and this is not an issue, the Hasegawa kits would probably be acceptable.
