What are we actually missing in 1/32?

Recommended Posts

...and some small parts. Detailed underwing pylons for the SpecialHobby Buckeye and for the F-104G to carry Kormorann ASM.

Italeri are running a "submit your suggestion with photos" and I have obliged with a large smorgasboard of J.35 Draken imagery.

 

First generation Harrier/Sea Harrier would also suit the 1/32 scale Italeri ethos of smallish jet, lots of possibilities with only minor extra tooling, and multiple Nation use.

 

Tamiya really should do a big Beaufighter before too long. But please do a Mossie NF.XVII/XIX before doing the razorback and bubbletop Jugs.

 

Hong Kong Models are so painfully slow I'm content just waiting for the FG.1/F-4K Spey-powered Phantom II.

 

Tan Model have pledged an RF-4E/F-4E and F-111A/E after its Freedom Fighters and Talon, so all's well there.

 

Revell, well apart from a Dornier twin I'd like to see the Ju 88 A-4 released as a C-6 neu variant, and a new tool Bf 110 G-4. If parent Hobbico insist on more stars 'n' stripes, then F-22 might be fun, and from Revell much cheaper than the real thing with a real liklihood of a second production run in the future.

 

Hasegawa, a new tool Hayabusa, plus Seiran and Ki 100 types would be super, please.

 

Zukei-Mura? I think they may be focusing more on 1/48 now but their quarter (sic) scale Phantoms are begining to look distracting.

 

Fly please do a 1/32 Jet Provost T.3/4

 

Trumpeter just get the bl**dy MiG-29A and UB out.

 

That's enough for now,

 

Tony

We're getting the O-1 and O-2 that I mentioned earlier in this thread last year I think, now I'll go with F3D Skyknight, Ju88G-1 and G-6, B-57, A-7A/B. Tamiya doing a P-51B and Beaufighter too.

Haven't we run out of airplanes yet?

This topic is over 2 years old already. 

Have we missed any airplane?

Really, this string is lots of fun and wishful thinking but I cannot think of any more aircraft that are feasible for a manufacturer to produce without going bankrupt. Anyone want a B-36?

Well, I've already banged on enough about a Revell Dornier 17Z....come on Revell!!!!  :mental:

 

I did have a really good think about another Airfix 1/24 kit, and for me although I would love to see a Griffon Spit, I can't help think that a P-51B in 1/24 up to the standards of the Typhoon would make them mega bucks. I'm just drooling thinking about the potential colour scheme options!!

Mr SSculptor...I concede that you make a very good point, but maybe someone will look in here for some inspiration...hopefully..Revell, I'm talking to you...Dornier...why isn't it on my workbench yet!

Yeah I kinda agree with Sccupltor that these threads get beat to death on about every forum I visit (hence the a/c I put up on the previous page lol) but still it is so hard to resist for many to not put up there 1/32 "hopes and dreams" list even if it is the 100th time....

 

Shoot I cant resist doing it again:

FJ4 Fury

Val

Kate

B-26

A-20

Beaufighter

Halberstadt Cl2

Hanriot HD1

 

And for the more crazy list (for HPH maybe? they seem to like big unusual subjects): Hawkeye, Stoof, WillyFudd, Ventura, Valkyrie, Caproni Bomber

Steve, I agree with you that perhaps some inspired miracle will happen and Revell will make a 1/32 Do-17 kit. 

Then we can get aftermarket people issuing the old early nose, and a D0-215, and a Do-217, Do-317....

I do get carried away at times.

Stephen;

 

It would be great to have all those options for a Dornier kit. I had hoped that the salvage of the Goodwin Sands Do-17Z might have raised enough interest from the manufacturers. Perhaps Revell don't seem to think that the Do-17 would make them enough money in 1/32. After all, it does seem to constantly live in the shadow of the He-111 and Ju-88 despite being a reliable workhorse for the Luftwaffe. It would be so nice to be able to complete that trio of BoB bombers in 1/32. Like you, I'll try to believe in that miracle!

Zoukei-Mura has no intention of ditching 1/32 ... All variants of the Fw.190 are currently in the works, in 2 types of kits - Standard SWS format or the new "Basic" format (think highly detailed standard kit form) ...

Apart from the phantom, all 1/48 kits so far have been a downscaled version of something released prior in 1/32.

 

Rog :)
