Any Tamiya 1/32 rumours?

Recommended Posts

I wonder--Did anyone bother to just ask the person at the Tamiya booth what the scale was--such a simple and obvious thing to do?  Apparently not, but it would have been interesting to hear the reply.

Unfortunately, ever since we started hearing rumors that Tamiya was getting out of the 1/32 game in favor of 1/48 aircraft modeling, we haven't seen a single 1/32 new offering but we have seen several new 1/48 offerings.

 

Tamiya is funny like that.  They do whatever they feel like doing and you never know what they are going to produce.

 

It's been forever since they've produced a new 1/12 F1 kit and I fear they are moving in that direction with their 1/32 super airplane kits.

 

If and when they actually show up at a model show with a new 1/32 aircraft, I'll be very pleasantly surprised, especially if it is anything German in origin!
 

Until then, I'm waiting for Z.M. to get those FW-190s to market!

Well, I'll have you know 1/72 is my preferred scale.........in U-boats.

 

;)

 

Amongst my other 1:72 "stuff", I have a Monogram B-52, and I see no need at all to have it any larger.

So... ... ... 

Re-issue F-16C Thunderbirds or do an F-16C/N Aggressor pack like in 48 scale and new tool F-14 :)@Zactoman

Never gonna happen...but deep sighs...

 

Way too sensible for Tamiya to do.

What are you talking about? I'm talking about 1/32 FW 190 series from Zoukei Mura.


Though unlike a lot of folks around here, I build all kinds of subject matter in all kinds of scale.

 

I would build a good 1/72 airplane model if the spirit hit me.  I think a lot of folks around here would not.

 

Click the link and scroll down for the FW 190 from ZM.
