Recommended Posts

Okay people here we go! These are the 2011 poll/wish list categories. All aircraft would be 1/32nd scale,Helicopters 1/35th scale. 1/24th has it's own category. If the 1/24th list becomes extensive I will break that down into eras also. Choose as many aircraft and eras as you like. I will be tabulating the votes manually. And seriously, please no 1/18th scale Martin Mariner requests !! These will be passed on to the major manufacturers in letter form as we did 2 years ago. We will be announcing a closing date on the poll in the near future.Let the games begin!!

WW II - German: Henschel Hs 129 - Lots of great camouflage schemes (from the Russian winter to African summer) and weapons systems, and one can have fun weathering it just like a tank.

Not too many answers to this one ... Are we spoiled to the point we do not want more, or more prosaically is the thread not visible enough ?

 

Anyway, trying to give it a bump ...

Thanks Hubert I was thinking the same thing! I may have to put up another mainstream post as a reminder! Everyone seemed so passionate about it and that's why we set it up again. Oh, well thanks for the bump!

OK, OK. I don't know how much good it will do but here is my 2 cents worth.

I am not including 1/32 models that already exist as wood kits or as vacuforms, because to me a vac is a model as much as a resin or an IM. The Guillows wood B-25 is fine with me as a 1/32 scale model.

 

Japan WW2

Val

Kate

Nell

Betty

 

USA WW2

Devastator

Helldiver

Martin Mariner

 

Germany

Do-17

Do-215

 

Italy

Cr.42

WWI

DH 9

 

Golden Age / Pre WWII

 

Curtiss Falcon

Hawker Fury

F3F

 

WWII USAAF / USN

 

T6 Harvard

 

WWII RAF / FAA

 

Firefly FR1

 

WWII Germany

 

Hs 126 (maybe in 35th scale to appeal to the tankies)

 

Post-WWII USAF / USN

 

F106

 

Post-WWII RAF / Royal Navy

 

Hawker Sea Fury

DHC Chipmunk

 

I'd actually only buy the British types here, but the others would do well in the whole market, I reckon. And why the 1920's and 1930's has been so ignored by the mainstream manufacturers, just amazes me! We have a handful of lovely resin kits, an old P26, F9 and P35 and some racers from Williams, but where are all the rest?

I'm going to pick only one "Most Wanted" aircraft. You can wish for a new tool done of this or that kit done to today's standards, but I wanted to pick one never available in large scale. It fits in Golden Age / Pre WWII / WWII category.

 

Lockheed Model 14 Super Electra / Lockheed Hudson MkI,II and III - It was used as a Commercial Passenger Aircraft and in war paint a Bomber, a Reconnaissance aircraft and a passenger carrier.

 

On 8 October 1939, over Jutland, a Lockheed Hudson became the 2nd RAF aircraft to shoot down a German aircraft. The first British aircraft to shoot down a German plane went to the Blackburn Skua of the Fleet Air Arm on 26 September 1939.

 

 

First Allied attack on Japanese in Pacific War.

Royal Australian Air Force. No.1 SQDN.Hudson bombers attacked Japanese ships and landing barges off the Malayan coast one hour before the attack on Pearl Harbour.

Notice the bomb bay doors one WWII's forgotten bomber.

For those who got to have guns

Better view of guns

 

So thats MostlyRacers and myself going to build this aircraft if somebody decides there is a profit to be made makes it in 1/32 scale.
