Most Wanted Poll / Wish List 2018 (and beyond)

Recommended Posts

Anything Swedish. I would love a 1/32 Gripen, but a Viggen or Draken would be amazing

 

An F-11 Tiger would be sweet

 

A Tempest has been on my list for years

 

Anything US from the inter-war period.

 

A Lockheed Hudson (in any scale really, 1/48 or 1/32 would be preferred)

 

AEG.III (Wingnuts, are you listening?)

F-111A/C/D/E/F, F-111B, FB-111, EF-111

It’s not that much bigger than an F-14 or Su-27 and many variations without many tooling changes.

I spoke once to Mr Song and he said that Trumpeter were working on the development of a 1/32 scale kit and then decided to release it as 1/48 scale Hobby Boss kit! Bummer!!!

I hope they change their minds.

I know it won’t happen but just think what Revell Germany could do with it in 32 scale.

My vote:

 

BV 138

 

D.B.

 

Nice..............tiz a really cool/different looking seaplane to be sure.

 

There is a really cool water diorama featuring the BV 138 HERE.

 

I think with my fascination of seaplanes, Im going to have to try a water dio one of these days. His method of reproducing water is quite ingenious.......

I can tell you Brian that I've been working on such a 'diorama' (though for me, it was just a 'sea base') using an old Glencoe Martin 'China Clipper' kit, and it has been a disaster! I might post photos of it when I can take some decent ones (not that it matters much). I'd love to conquer this water effect for seaplanes and flying boats, as like you, I have a fascination with them, and would love to be able to display them this way. Thanks for the link to the Bv 138 build though; I'll have to read it carefully and see what techniques and approaches I can glean.

Cool Kev. You know the guys around here..................there is always something cool about or something cool one can learn even from disasters..............

 

In this case he started off with a dense foam base, cutting holes in it or channels as needed for the plane, landing and boat, then used Paper mache or (Celluclay here in the states) to cover it, creating "waves" as he went in the paper mache with a food spatula. After he let that dry, he indicated he used 20 min apoxy to cover the waves, then highlighted them after he was done.

 

The results speak for themselves, and are quite impressive IMHO.

 

Like you Kev, I think I will have to re-read, and experiment myself on something before actually trying this on a real dio. From what I read of his article, he also used a:

 

"test-area where I could figure out the best methods for the real thing"

 

Post up some pics if you get a chance Id love to check it out, disaster or not. :)

id really love to se a 1/32 scale Draken and Gripen ... Revell ? Trumpeter ?

 

others on my wish list would be a T.6 Texan/Havard, Do.17 (pretty please Revell !) Canberra B.2 and a DH. Vampire, preferably an FB.6 but a T.11 would be nice too :) (hmm a Vampire and Meteor would be a nice way for Airfix to introduce the scale ?)

 

cheers, Joe

1/32 Russian WWII fighters !!! The Mig-3 and Stourmavik are great starts, but seems like every other major combatives airforce has been reproduced several times over and the VVS has been largely ignored by the mainstream.
