Miniart 1/35 Focke-Wulf Triebflugel interceptor

Recommended Posts

Why would they do it at all?  I don’t think this is on any list of desired kits.  However, paper panzers and what if’s don’t do a lot for me.  On the other hand since it is German people will buy it and no one can say it is inaccurate because I don’t think any of these were ever made.

Why has Revell done kits of every Luftwaffe paper project?  Why did MMD sponsor a 1/35 "Nazi" flying saucer?  Beats the heck out of me.

Actually, Revell only did a handful of Luft '46 models. The ones who really did a lot of them were MPM/Special Hobby/Planet Models conglomerate. The reason why they did it was because it was very lucrative. Think "Goop": super-hyped BS that makes lots of money. :)

But WHY would they do it in 135th???   (Im assuming they thought it "helo-ish")      Boooooooooooo

Exactly. There should not be ANY aircraft kits in 1/35. IMHO, that scale should be stamped out entirely (even for targets).

There'd have to be a snoot-full of rudder authority to counter the torque from that gigantic propeller.

 

As for the kit.....meh, even if it was 1/32.  Guess Luftwaffe 46 isn't my bag baby...(best Austin Powers voice).

Coincidentally, I just a few days ago pulled out my resin kit of the 1/32nd Trieflugel, probably the same kit Brian started. Thought it would fit in nicely in the multi-engine GB. But I got to finish the 335 first.  Focus, Ray, focus!!

Only if it were powered from an engine or engines inside of the fuselage.

 

But it's not. 

 

Seeing this thread did remind me to get out my mostly-built Unicraft 1/32 kit. Just needs a pain job and final assembly...
