1/32 Spirit of St. Louis??

Recommended Posts

What ever became of that 1/32 Spirt of St. Louis kit that was (as I recall) at the test shot stage about 10-12 years ago?  AFAIK nothing more was ever heard of it, but the tooling was basically done.

Besides the Aerotech one that Eric built on here?  Can't seem to find another one in 1:32

 

No, there was a really gorgeous mainstream injection molded kit underway.  They showed a built up test shot before the plug got pulled on the project for some reason I don't remember.  I find it hard to believe anybody would scrap completed tooling like that.  

 

Maybe it will resurface someday.

It would be great to have one in plastic, but no matter which way you go, that metal cowling is still going to be waiting for you at the end!

 

As I recall, the kit I'm referencing had the swirl pattern etched into the molds.  That's part of what was so exciting about it.

Sounds a bit Auroraesque to me...

Remember it too Jennings - can't remember the planned manufacturers name - but it may come to me.

 

Had full interior framing and looked pretty well finished in the last photos I saw...

Good, so it's not the drugs then... :)

 

 

I want to say something like Bronco or Mustang or something horse related was the name of the company.

Absolutely not - and I was really looking forward to it!

 

I'll have a dig - no promises...

Try Pegasus Models 8001 Ryan NYP 'Spirit of St.Louis' - 2008 (ish)

 

Off to see if I can find anything picture-wise on the Interweb...

That's the one!

 

I *may* have something on an old backup from the 32SIG website - I definitely had some photos somewhere...

 

Looked to be a stunning kit.
