Finally got one.

Post by [CAT]CplSlade » Mon Oct 15, 2012 1:47 pm

Finally won an auction for a Revell Mosquito kit in 1/32.

Been trying for a while and keep getting sniped at the last second.

But now the hunt is over - one more British plane for the collection.

I have that one too, but I painted over the dome and added the MG's, to make it the cooler fighter version.
I pretty much have all of the 1:32 WWII aircraft by Revell. The ONLY ONE left in that collection that I don't have, is the ME-262 with the giant cannon on it's nose. Wait till I post my B-25 photos and how I converted it into a toy that fits 21st Cent. U.S. pilot figures.

I know this is a bit off topic but when I got my 21ct 1:32 262 it had a nose cannon but I've never seen it in anyone else's pictures anywhere am I like a luck person to get one like that or are others that way it's the yellow 7 262 by the way

Are you saying you have something different from the little hole in the tip of the nose?

Yes it came with a black cannon about 5"-6" long fits like the antenna on my F-104's and also came with the 2 bombs.

I have never seen or heard of that. But you never know, perhaps 21st released a few, then went under? Would you be willing to post a photo of your ME 262 with a nose cannon.
What if?? ThankX

Congrats on the Win I know it took me quite a few tries to get both of mine as well. Here is one of them done. I bought the grey matter figures fb nose conversion for the other one. Good luck with the build and be sure to post pics!

With the lack of new pre built releases coming we should open a thread for stuff we've built ourselves.

The release of Pre-built WWII models have been slow and uninspiring for about 4 years now, since the demise of 21st Cent. Toys.
The lack of activity forced me to start building 1:32 tank, aircraft and figure kits.
I must admit, my collection has never been more exciting!
To our great fortune, 1:32 aircraft is currently experiencing a new heyday!
All the BIG war planes are being released on a monthly basis. The B-25, B-17, Lancaster, HE-111, Black Widow and the Uhu just to name a few. Now, if you are willing to mix 1:35 with 1:32, a UNIVERSE of BATTLE is within your grasp! Torpedo boats anyone?

I would not be averse to that.
