You’re right granch, the Thomas Gunn Miniatures Natter model is a bit too small. It is probably closer to 1/32 or 1/35 as opposed to 1/30 scale. Not sure why or how they got it so off - I have a couple of their premium 1/30 wooden model aircraft and their V-1 Reichenberg model and those are correctly scaled.

Very cool and the Natter looks like it’s coming along nicely!

I just got this awesome idea of building one of these so it could mount one of those model rocket engines... If the model is balanced and stable enough, it could be launched and the little charge could blow out the cockpit section and a parachute, allowing it to float back to the ground... Almost like the real thing 8)

So
- Normandy
- TMANTHEGREAT and
- PVANROY

are on board. we need 2 more. Better 3 or 4.
Maybe you interested guys can do some propaganda for the Natter in other Model builder forums. Lukas and I would really appreciate this.
Payment should be done with the half of the amount as a deposit. But only when Lukas starts the second production run.
I´ll keep you oinformed
Let me know if some advertising is possible.

That looks absolutely beautiful, Crazy Kraut :D

I need to get started on my kit and hope it comes out looking half as good. What did you use for the decals?

Outstanding!! Wonderful looking model and a very nice paint scheme.
As Autumn sets in and winter not far behind, I'll be getting back to my
1:18 projects...Natter is first. :)

I’m familiar with Peddinghaus having gotten some sets off eBay... I know they have 1/32 scale aircraft decals, but do they do custom work like the larger decals for a 1/18 or other large scale model? Thanks :D

Yes they do custom decals for the 1:18 scale. You just need to ask them about. In ebay they are offering some custom sheets for detailing Me109, 262 and Fw190.
