New HK Models Kit TBA @ US Nats!

Recommended Posts

For sure, it’s poor marketing, but the reality is that it likely won’t matter at all.  When the kit is finally announced, it will get the same reaction as if it were announced last week.  People will either be interested in the kit or they won’t.  I can’t imagine anyone saying that they would have been interested in the kit, but not now since HK let me down by not announcing at the Nats like they promised.

If the Hoover marketing issue you mentioned was in the UK for free flights to America, yes its very true. Absolutely incredible how stupid some companies can be....

 

Yep, that's the same fiasco that I read about.

1/32nd He-177 would be epic.. 

 

But I would love a Maurader, Do-17/217,.... but if it's something like a B-29, all I can think of is making one into a Tu-4 :wub:

Very frankly I'm hoping this will be a jet and ideally a cold war one. The number of not yet released WW2 major actors is quickly decreasing whereas jet releases are becoming very rare in large scale. WW1 is also rather well covered now with regard to regular releases. Moreover, it also looks we won't have anymore many resin options for them as Fisher stopped production, Hph is also interested for some time in WW2 topics and LEM is focusing now on smaller planes...

Ok so this will obviously be a 1/32 F-22 with weapons bays opening/closing via HK's new App... which btw also enables you to turn on your air-compressor while on vacation in Hawaii (assuming we have opted for the $799 connectivity upgrade for our compressors).

PS Word on the street is that there will soon be a premium version of the App which will enable canopy opening/closing and, possibly, a jet fuel smell simulation. But those are just rumors...

LSP member Maciej Goralczyk, known here as barkhorn, is designing the decals. He is a WW2 SME and is being sent a test shot for decal fit checks. 

He has also stated it's not the Auntie Junkers or an early Mustang.
 
Merit pledged six kits to raffle winners without announcing the subject, which is due to start shipping by the end of September. So, unlikely to be a mega expensive kit such as a B-29 n'est ce pas? 
 
So, taking in all those factors, yeah, sure, why not a Mod 1181 RF-101C with working KA-1, -56 and KS-72 cameras or a latex replica of Sasha Bonilova?
Might be wrong but I still think it's a Bf 110 G-4, Me 410 or — blimey — an attempt to cash-in on the Fw 190 craze (God help us)

You took the words out my mind Dr Dave

 

I think they were too embarrassed to tell it's just another Wurger
