Found two "Tarheel Hal" P-47s at a local Wal Mart today. It is a beautiful scheme and my example is nearly perfect! It is hard to believe that this was actual WWII noseart and not an airshow scheme :wink:

I hope to find the Tarheel Hal P-47 here soon. It is a great looking scheme, and I can imagine the model looks nice. :D

Can you please post a picture of your Tarheel Hal P-47? I would really like to see it. Thanks. :D

I personally think it is one of the best and most striking paintschemes for the 32x P-47 8) My example was nearly flawless and the colors have a shiny gloss to them. What may appear to be paint blemishes in the pictures are really light reflections off the paint gloss. Its hard to believe that this was the paintscheme for an actual warbird in the ETO - it seems to be more of an airshow scheme! The accessories (figure, drop tank, rocket tubes, bombs & racks) are the same as on all the other 32x P-47s. This scheme would also look GREAT in 1:18 :wink:

Funny - this past weekend I found "Tarheel Hal" P-47s in a WM out in Midland, Texas so I got it.
Sabrefan, not worries if the Tarheel is here in Texas it is just a matter of time before it will show up in LA.

I haven't seen any 32x planes in my AO since I bought my Stuka and Corsair last month. :cry:

I finally took my Hackl 109 out of the box and put it together. I can't get over how realistic it is compared to my old desert yellow 4 109 that I got years ago. That thing looks like a toy and this looks like I just built it from a kit. Great aircraft! I still have my new Corsair and Stuka to open one of these days. I can't wait for the Polish squadron P-51B!

Yes I do Like that Tarheel Hal scheme. They have one at the Air Museum in Galveston. They usually fly it at shows but it was being overhauled last time I visited. Hope to find one here in Central Texas soon. Does anyone know when the release date for the F4 Phantom is?

I picked up the new 262 yesterday and I was surprised to see it listed as S4. I think I have at least 6 now.

1. White 3
2. Yellow 7
3. Yellow 3
4. White 5
5. Red 13 dogfight series
6. Red B (S4)

Just an observation, can anybody fill in the series numbers?

Found 1 lonely red B 262, of course didn't ring up on the register, had to wait for them to figure it out. But, my opinon it's the best 32xw 262 to date.

Amen brother. I just picked one up today along with Tex Hill's "Bullfrog I" at a TRU over in the states. Lucky me, because I had been to two Wal-Marts already, and after finding only 109's, I was ready to return to Canada empty handed.

As for Bullfrog I it slightly edges out my Black 12 190D-9 for the best fit of any 32X plane (IMHO).

I keep looking for the Bullfrog P-51, no luck. There was one ME262 at TRU, maybe there was a Bullfrog also and someone picked it up. :(

Found another Bullfrog/Princess P-51 duo at another Wal Mart in Fresno. Princess still had the uneven tail stripes which really detracts from an otherwise excellently rendered paintscheme...

On another note, I also found the new FOV 1:72 vehicle Battlepacks and the 1:32 aircraft at a Fresno area Target. The battlepacks included the "Dragon Wagon" vehicle :wink:

I'm probably going to have to take my Bullfrog back to where I got it. The hardpoints for the droptanks didn't come with the rest of the plane. :(

Hey tman, so they're making Bullfrog in 1/48 or Princess in 1/32???

Brand new WM opened near me today.
They had a new "Dogfights" set containing a Corsair and a Zero. I did not check details carefully. The Zero was dark green.

Not something I'll go mad hunting down, but that has to be one of their better pairings for a Dogfight set 8)

Are these 1/32 or 1/144?

Picked up the new Stuka/Macchi 202 Dogfight set today. I really don't need more of either aircraft, but both schemes are really quite unique! The Stuka is a plane used by an Italian squadron in the Balkans campaign and has the Italian insignia on it. The Macchi 202 is from the same group as the previously released "Reinar" Macchi (S2?). It has a nice banded green-on-tan cammo pattern, save that the right wing carries a smoke-ring pattern. On the real plane, the wing was damaged and had to be replaced with parts from another plane. Its nice to get new repaints!

Went to a Wally World across the river tonight, and lo and behold were two 32x Dogfight packs, both of them "Big Hog" vs. "Red 183". I quickly scooped one set up, and I just finished putting them together. The Zero is excellent, but I gotta be careful around my Corsair's landing gear as they're quite finnicky, and the canopy is loose to the point where slide off at the slightest touch. Any thoughts?

Edit: They also had a couple of "Cobra" and "Bastogne" playsets as well as some XD stuff.

3 new kits, A6M3 Zero, Macchi C.205, and Bf-109-G15. (I think it was a G15 anyway).
