New HK Models Kit TBA @ US Nats!

Recommended Posts

well, 12 pages with 10k views, and we don't know the type yet :D

I don't mind to wait 2 more months for new B-26 or Beaufighter ;)

 

there is one poster over on britmodeller saying that "it won't be any of the 'rumoured' subjects mentioned in the 2nd post." That would exclude Ju-52, F-4K/M and P-51B/C

however I cannot comment on credibility of the OP

Said poster designs decals for HK, so he knows what he's working on ;)
Although in the case of Phantoms he'll probably leave the job to someone else.

Weird.... when you go to HK models web site it has a black and white pic of a Spey Phantom at the top.  Not sure if this is just because they announced it in the past, or if it is the new release.:hmmm:

Yep, a shot of a Phantom's nose, a shot of a radial engine in a twin-engine wing, and a shot of a jet engine's backside.

We don't get pages of "oh god, they've done this wrong, they've done that wrong".

 

 

That will happen anyway! I can tell you right now how it will go:

- wrong version, I wanted the other one

- the whatchamacallit on the yoke that extends from the whatsit is wrong

- it costs how much? For that money I can get many other things that are completely unrelated

- someone will say "lock the thread" or something like that.

Summary of facts we know:

 

It's coming out at the end of next month

 

It's a WW2 subject but is not the P-51B/C

 

Six were pledged in a raffle, so it's unlikely to be a very expensive subject  = one prop probably

The whinge Radu missed out: not another kit of that type

Administrator should lock this imaginary thread going forward.  Someone will likely blow an O ring soon.  

 

I couldn’t help myself after Radu’s comment above.  :coolio:

 

Yeah...  Especially if "someone" finds out the kit is a modern jet and not a Luftwaffe prop job.  :piliot:

It's coming out at the end of next month ... In theory - New releases are ALWAYS later than the date indicated - So I'm not taking that for Gospel.

 

It's a WW2 subject but is not the P-51B/C ... How do we know for certain that it's a WWII subject, again?

 

Six were pledged in a raffle, so it's unlikely to be a very expensive subject  = one prop probably ... The first part is fact - 6 raffle ticket winners ... but the rest is speculation ... It could easily be a bigger kit like a twin. The Meteor retail wasn't that high and Average non-Revell kit value for anything in 1/32 these days has to be $100+

 

------

 

The whinge Radu missed out: not another kit of that type ... A forgone conclusion, apparently.
