Yeah the SBD looks nice, but out of my league.

I'll will be getting the Liberator though. They probably will not have fixed the bombay doors, but I'm buying one anyways.
The edition size should be way down there in the 300 size by now.

Already have 4 of the HM 1/32 Dauntless, so enough for me, although this one is pre war, so something different. Obviously to go with the upcoming 1/32 Hellcat.

1/200 is not my scale, but like the Pan Am DC-3, and the Lockheed Constellation "Warning Star", in a different scheme.

HM continue to pump out a lot of releases, month after month. 8)

Only interested in the 1/144th stuff, hence the B-24D. Nice. Wish they weren't so expensive though. Im hoping they continue to pump out more and more versions and use the 24 mold.

Still hoping for these:

I think so far the schemes they done have been pretty good compared to what we have seen in diecast at any scale.

That's all I'm interested in too pretty much, though I might get the 1:72 Princeton Hellcat, that's about it.

This scheme is not too bad. I like that they did a 1943 version with the red around the insignia, and we finally get an OD version that's not an assembly ship.

I too hope they'd make some more of these 1:144 aircraft. Hopefully there's another Ju-52 in the pipe also.

I'll get that B-24. I've been wanting them to make one in a standard OD Green scheme. I have the "Lady Be Good" model. The HM 1:144 B-24 is expensive for such a small item, but its one of the best 1:144 planes out there. They need to expand the line to other bombers.

I bought the Snow White & 7 Dwarves and like it a lot. Recently got the PB4Y too as it's different enough from the others.

Usually the prices on the later releases are slightly below the first few. They did that on both the last Ju-52 and PB4Y, so maybe we'll get a break?

I too would like them to expand the line. Something a little nicer like the F-Toys B-17G only die cast.
