What are we actually missing in 1/32?

Recommended Posts

How about a Spruce Goose

 [ I'd need to buy another five modelling tables to fit it on though ]

There are a Yak-1b (A2Zee), a La-7 (HPH), Hs-129 (Grey Matter) and a Spitfire V (Hobbyboss). Even a Su-17/22 (Ruporator, via Ebay). Nice kits all together.

 

Well, the Mig-29 by Revell and P-51B by Trumpeter could need a replacement... The Yak-3 by Aeropoxy is also so-so. Buildable and looks like one, but smaller parts like prop and UC are not that good.

Well, we are still missing these:

Val,

Kate,

Ju-87A

Devastator

Yes, I know these have been promised. Some by Trumpeter. Uh huh, Trumpeter promises next month but they omit which year. There have been kits that were announced and finally appeared 4 years later.

But eventually most come out so I cannot holler at them. They are trying and eventually they do produce. One just has to have patience.

And the others have been announced. OK, so we will wait.

After all, I  have been retired for well over a decade and we retired folk are supposed to be sitting on a beach in Florida sipping drinks that have umbrellas in them and waiting patiently to die. Thats why people retire to Florida, isn't it?

After all, I haven't the time to even open the boxes of the kits I have in my stash, not to speak of building them.

so, it's a year since asking the question..

 

..grateful thanks to Kittyhawk and Silver Wings for going at the list but there are still quite a few 1/32 subjects that are just begging to be done, and that is without even looking at what needs re-popping (Tamiya P51B/C anyone..)..

 

I like to look at the list and dream about scratchbuilding / kitbashing, but then again these are our golden years in 1/32 so who knows what we can scratch off next year..

There must be something wrong with me...there isn't a single plane on that I would run out and buy. I guess that means that pretty much everything I care to build in 1/32 is already being made, even though I don't own it all yet. I can't decide if that's good, or bad.

Really???

 

There are very few WWII props on that list that I WOULDN'T run out and buy if someone release a nice kit version....

 

I would, just for starters, DEFINITELY buy a Helldiver, any of the early Yaks, a Lagg-3 or La-5, any of the Fairey aircraft, any british bomber in general, a plastic Me 410 or Fw189 or Ta154 or Hs129, an updated/non-Trumpeter P-47D Razorback or Wildcat or P-38 Lightning... the list goes on and on really. There's plenty of ways for the manufacturers to get more of my money. Oh and the thing I want most? A diverse high-quality series of Hurricane variants...

As implausible as it might have sounded in the past I'm still hoping Glen & KHM will give us a B-58.......and it doesn't appear to be listed, but KHM will have a Jaguar for us in 2016, and Fly will get us a Wessex this year hopefully.

A new Beaufighter would be a good seller I think. Just like the Revell Mossie, the Revell Beau requires a replacement. I just happen to know a museum that has one and would probably let a company crawl in and around it to produce a new kit.

Jaguar would be a top seller for sure. I don't know if they build models i india, but if they do they should sell tons of them.
