Re: What Is Your Favorite Twin Engine Aircraft ?

There's plenty of twins I'd like to have in a larger scale model like a B-25 or C-47, but I think I would rather have a Grumman Goose, Pre-war, 1941, 1942 etc. military markings. Da plane da plane… :lol:

In 1:1 scale too. 8)

Re: What happened to BBI?

Surely no one has to pay any royalties to a company who formerly made aircraft or armor under the Nazi regime? Maybe a Volkswagen Bug because it was made postwar also in the same way, but a King Tiger tank? Surely not anything made by Mitsubishi or Kawasaki during the war like the Zero or Tony, but ...

You guys forgot the p-40E. Skyworks had a conversion kit for the P-40B Tomahawk, but as of yet none have been done otherwise. :) Plenty of choices for different ones from different countries who flew them.

Re: Dragon P-47's?

They are outstanding. Like the Mustang I think they have more detail than any 1:48 versions. All the fiddly bits you can use a little white glue to hold them in place. The bubble tops have sliding canopies. The razorbacks have optional opened canopy. The Eagleston and Gabreski are hard to find now. ...

Re: Good early war FW-190 recommendations?

I bought one Corgi. The Dragon Warbirds is the only other option I know of.

There's one or two that are the early versions A-3 through 5 with non typical camouflage.

Re: Corgi Bird Cage Corsair

I pre-ordered the 1:48 Ken Walsh from HM just to have one that is a little more refined, though some don't like the...

This is an interesting release. Think I'd like to get one to go with my other planes in similar FAA colors. Didn't know it was a pre-war version? but at least in camouflage. Not too keen on the over all silver pre-war Brit aircraft. The Oxford top profile shows no insignia on the wings, yet in C44's...

This is good news. Particularly the P-40. Plenty of Corgi Emils, but I could buy more. Likely the Brits will be getting some liveries on this American warbird before we ever see a Taylor and Welch. Which is understandable because they fought with it first in North Africa. Nice looking desert birds s...

Before an Avenger in 1:48, Hobby Master needs to make an A6M Zero... I have a Maurshin diecast Zero, which looks the part, but it's not big on detail. A Hobby Master version would be far superior!
