Probably a good idea since anything said or shown today could be regarded as an April fools joke. :lol:

That's why we did not make any post on the 1st. However, we are facing some delay on our side and we will still make good on a "April" announcement within April.

Is this going to be a modern bird or vintage?

It will be one each if we can still count the FW-190 A-5.

This is excluding JSI, right?

JSI just announced that their next is the F-86 Sabre.


yawn, There's only a million of these already on the market, and removable gear?
bleh.



oh info @ batcattoys.com


was hoping for something that hasn't been done yet.

This is probably the first time I have been truly disappointed about a 1:18 announcement. At least make it an all new paint scheme :-(

yea that is a disappointing announcement. Of course the mold must be the old admiral or the 21st one. Much easier to release this than make another complete one like the Dauntless

It's a nice looking plane but I could really care less, no sale here.

Here's the Bad Cat link for the F-86.... http://www.badcattoys.com/fsajetmajjaj.html

I'd like to see the FW-190.

While good to see a new 1/18 release, another F-86 Sabre is hard to get excited about.

Thanks to [email protected] for the updates, and hope that he doesn't take the lack of enthusiasm personally.

Lets hope we see the Focke Wulf sooner, rather than later. :wink:

Just got the email. What a bummer! I got my Huff packed away in the closet, I don't need another Sabre. :? :(

If they HAD to do an '86, a Dog Sabre would have been cool but I dunno if I would have bought one of those either. I can pretty much only afford Easy Model 1:72 these days. a 1:18 bird has to be REALLY special for me to pull the trigger. :lol: :lol:

Couldn't be less excited - Unless, maybe, they were announcing a repainted Mig 15!
Merit, IMO, missed the boat on this one - Don't think sales will impress...
Really curious, though, as to why Merit would choose the F86 for a repaint?

That's a good point, it is nothing personal at all. I am very grateful for them keeping the scale alive. However, at this point with my collection I will only be adding new planes, no more duplicates, I just have too many.
