I just wish someone would do an Aero C-104, oh wait...

 

Personally I'd much rather see a Tatra T.131...  :)

This is all very exciting, perhaps ICM will bring out an accurate Tiger Moth next to complement the Bucker!! :)

Now we’re talking!

In order to further this thread's degeneration I must insist that ICM are actually tooling up a 1/32 Skoda Kauba SK 257, with looks well ahead of its time...

Never going to happen, no one's going to buy a model of an aircraft that looks like that. Oh, wait...

The 'D' was used in the Dutch East Indies, not the 'B' as I previously stated..now I'm on the fence for the review...😀

Can someone enlighten me about the -D designation ?

Wherever I look, I see no version beyond the -C, the most numerous one being the -B :hmmm:

I’m assuming it’s more a « glitch » from ICM’s boxart. And of course I hope there will be more decos than just ones with swastikas ...

Quote from the german Wikipedia:

 

"Replaced the B version from 1938. Differs externally with a larger tail wheel. Engine Hirth HM 504 A-2 (105 hp)"

So much excellent stuff in the ICM catalogue that could be scaled-up, but I imagine the injection moulds would cost a fortune
(Ju 88 C-6, Do 215, and Do 217 night fighters, and multiple Foxbats). Long may they continue doing 1/48 and 1/32.

Kit has arrived - and it looks really good!

 

4 decal options are all WWII Luftwaffe.

 

Working from home today - so may be able to get some photos done over lunch time...

Bummer about the decos being LW only :(. Maybe this is why it’s a « D » version.

I’ll wait for the « B » then, and hopefully they will have decos of other aircrafts than LW...

I have an order ready in my cart from Hannants. I think i'm going to add this kit... ;)

I already have the Bu-133 and Bu-181 (will be built as a swedish SK25 !) from Planet models, that 131 would be a nice addition.


Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Looks to be as good as their I-16. Great to have another manufacturer of top quality 1/32 kits.
