ICM seems to have found a niche market in the time from 1935 to 1940- ish. Is it too much to think they will do a US and Japanese subject that meshes with their current line up? A TBD would fit, as would a Spruce trainer.

And a ......Do-17.

Yes! An early Do 17 for me, too, please! And what about some beautiful french planes of this period?

This looks really good.....

Does the kit have location holes for the rigging? I can't seem to make out from the pics I have seen so far....

Cheeers.

The answer is no, but the instructions illustrate very well where they go.

All you need is the drill and off you go!

Looks like a nice model, and it's one I've wanted to see on the market for some years, so thanks very much, ICM.  Now the next thing is to see what pre-war non camo offerings the aftermarket will do.

 

 

Cheers,

Michael

 

AIMS have a couple of sheets in the works

Based on what they’ve released so far, my impression is that their 1/32 offerings are limited to smallish, relatively simple aircraft with simple cockpits.  A TBD would be bigger and more complex than what they’ve offered so far, as would twin engined bomber.

No Pascale it doesn’t I’m afraid. :wacko:

Well that still leaves a few untouched subjects: American, Japanese, French. Italian Cr 32 or Lysander or Japanese pre Zero fighter please!

I can’t recommend these ICM kits enough.  The I-153 kit just fell together.  I opened up the female plug holes a bit on the one fuselage half and the used some liquid cement and this thing glued up solid.  There is also a real pronounced fuselage to wing fairing on the lower wing that just fits so well to the fuselage.   A simple one main wing strut on each side and this builds into a solid late biplane fighter.  I can’t wait to get a Gladiator.  The pictures of the Gladiator build look stunning.  

 

I love the subjects they they are picking for IM.   A Dornier?   Oh yes.

I taped up the fuselage halves of the Gladiator Troy to see what the fit was into the lower wing.......absolute perfection!  Couldn't agree more with your comments about ICM, their Jungmeister is good too.
