Merti at Comic Con 2019.

Post by trex0770 » Fri Jul 19, 2019 5:39 pm

Heard from a friend that Merit has a booth at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Wondering if anyone can confirm and if there's anything 1/18 scale.

It would be nice to see them offer another 1:18 or other scale pre-built and painted aircraft.

They're on the official list of exhibitors. Nothing else on the web about them being there or any new 1/18.

Would be nice but I wouldn't hold my breath. The most logical would be an A-8 Focke Wulf 190 as a follow up to the A-5 like the Hobby Boss kit.

I agree.
Thought the Graf scheme was a little over the top, but I don't know if anything else would sel these days.
Maybe an over the top Gunhurz version?

But yeah not holding my breath.

On the subject of Merit 1/18, here's an interesting flashback showing the prototype 190A-5 with wing racks for the HobbyBoss kits mystery bombs with nowhere to put them and aren't even on the instructions.
