Surprise, surprise; Currently One Man Model are gearing up to print the Short Scylla in 1/72 and 1/48 but he is posting messages on Britmodeller saying that he is willing to do it in 1/32 as well. Price will be 480 USD in that scale. 

 

He is selling the 1/72 and 1/48 versions here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/115612833930 and asks that anyone that wants the 1/32 version to message him.

 

Kind regards,

Paul

'cause it's ugly, has lots of struts and wires and did I mention it's ugly. It's just because I'm ancient that I knew what it was without the photo. Come on guys there must be a more deserving airframe to go to all the trouble with, the Blackburn Blackburn has been criminally ignored by the modelling world for instance. Now there is an ugly aeroplane.

Actually the guy is making the models HE wants. It looks he has no actual large scale marketing goal. The sales to other modellers are a positive side effect of his hobby. Globally, this is very positive for others as well as this results in the release of oddball topics we would never see otherwise! The Scylla was quite famous as she was the mainstay of Imperial airlines with the HP42/45. She has that Agatha Christie era flavor! Not my cup of tea ;) but nonetheless interesting. However, I'm afraid this one will ask for a TON of work to get a good result in large scale.

Ugly pffff. The Short Scylla is a rank amateur in the ugly stakes…. The Dyle et Bacalan DB10 hit every branch of the ugly tree as it fell out of the sky…

I love that people are using 3d printing to create models rare and unusual models for the rest of us.  Now...   I just need the ones I want to be made.  But I won;t list them to avoid turning this into another wish list.

Nicely put Gazzas.

:clap2:
