Mc 200, it is ugly enough to be good looking and certainly is unique. Do it in 80"-85" and I will be in line to get it.

Well a little late but what the hey, In the bigger critters I'd like to see the P-63, P-39 in 1/5 or 1/4 the P-82 in 1/5, I like the Macchi 202 and agree with some others here that some Russian planes would be interesting.. Randy

1/4 scale P-40C!!! Jerry Bates is the ONLY other person I know who has plans for that one. That was the original fighter that the Flying Tigers of the AVG flew in Burma and China. I think it looks more bad@$$ with the shark mouth than the E version

Hello Bobby,
We are looking into your request of the 1/4 P-40F version!
It will be a wood constructed and will have a fiberglass fuse as an addition.

Dino.. check out the differences between the "C" version and the "F" version. The "C" version is much sexier to me when you add the shark mouth. Very cool!

Hey Bob,

Thanks for the pics. We are not quite there yet to pick out the exact version but I can tell you we will consider all avenues.

Either way... 1/4 scale P-40 would still be awesome. Its my favorite plane and its my dream plane to build! Im looking forward to seeing what you guys pick... it will be exciting no matter what.

Dino btw... I got that Hangar 9 P-47! Ill email you if I have any questions about it.

Just to let you know, we are working on the P-51B and it looks like we will be moving forward on the P-40. Not sure exactly which model.

We are also working to finish a fiberglass Fuse for our 190A and for the 109.

Keep the comments coming!

ORIGINAL: Capt. Winters

I would like to see a 82 in. TBF Avenger with glass fuse. I would also like to see the 80 in, P-39 glass fuse. May we call you "Santa" ? Take care Capt. Winters
I would like to see the avenger in 80 to 100 inch also with fiberglass fuse.

Hey Ed,

We are still working out some details. We will have the full wood kit and short kit soon. Hang in with us. We just want to make sure we get her 100% right before we launch it out. Keep my email pilotpj@gmail.com and let me know you want on the list and I'll keep you informed as we go.

Thanks!
PJ

As there are tons of P-51, P-40, P-47, etc and rightfully so I'd still like to see something different in 1/4 scale.



It would save me from drafting it up.

Any one mention a Heinkel 100?

Flat center section, with a single spar behind the gear (strong)

Tons of dihedral (stable)

90 degree landing gear with positive down locks (INWARD RETRACTING)

Wide track mains with large wheels (nice on grass)

4 split flaps, with BIG fish filets on the fuse.

Small aircraft. 92 1/2 inches is 1/4 scale. 1/5 scale is only 74.2 inches (That is for the fighter wing. The race wing was 25'ft)

Very clean design, no external cooling vents (hard to keep it from over heating)

Not alot of pictures of it. They never saw combat.

The Japs bought them and copied/re-engineered them (KI-61 Hein)

Would it be possible to SELL more than 5 to 10 kits around the world?

I guess that is why it is not modeled much.

Dino and PJ,

The vote for a P-39 is now up to three. Piddling, I know, but we can make a lot of noise if we have to. Once you get settled into your new digs in Florida, maybe you guys could look at the Airacobra as a viable offering. Please?

Al

Personally, I like this one flown by George Welch. The same George Welch who, along with Lt. Taylor, did battle with the Japanese during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Consolidated was selling short kits of their 100 inch P-39 at the IMAA West Coast Festival two years ago. Fiberglass fuse, foam wing. They had about six and sold out quickly. It was under $500. I grabbed their flyer but the website never worked. They are in central California. Here's a pic of one of their completed kits:

Since I am already on Mustang B list, I will also jump on the P-39 Bandwagon. Preferably a P-39Q.

Hey guys,

I'm on board with the Air cobra as well, but you will have to help me beat that into Dino! He is a hard headed Italian/German who grew up in NJ!!! Do you know what that does to this good "ole" country boy from Kentucky?!?

Here is my problem with the really cool designs that not many people would want. Ever heard of the HE 112? Sort "a" looks like a 109 on steroids. It was a fast little bu gar and flew very well. I had an 80 inch version. I would simply love to build that and campaign it, but to be honest with you, nobody else would want one....or at least not enough people to offset the cost.

There is a tone of cost that is associated with working on a new model. Everything to working on the scale drafting, molding parts, finding someone to build the set of gear, building a few to fly "out there" for ya'll to see, etc. So....it is a delicate balance to find something "new" yet have enough people interested in the plane so your money will offset our cost. (aaaaaand thats why we get so pissy when people copy cat our stuff)[:'(] We are currently working on two major projects for Meister-Scale. We are developing (meaning I'm currently building the plugs) a fiberglass fuse for each airplane we currently produce minus the fun scale P-51 and Spit. 2nd, we are looking at new planes. Up for grabs at this point is the P-51B (we are currently in pre-production "stuff"), A P-40something, I don't know which version, and maybe a P-39....MAYBE!!!

Oh yeah, for all of you fellas out there that have been screaming about a P-40 "I want a P-40 I want a P-40", jeez! Do you ever sleep! [sm=spinnyeyes.gif][sm=biggrin.gif] I need some help from ya! We have two different P-40s on the table. What (besides the under scoop) is different? I need to know if they cut on the fuse different, same or different wing, etc....Here is why. I could work on a mold that would accept both so you could choose which one you wanted. If I need to simply add or subtract certain features but could sell one fiberglass fuse mold.......well that would be just super wouldn't it. I'm sure one of you guys are going to tell me that the fuse is very different and force me to have to either choose or build two! So let me know...

Thanks for all the information....NOW GO BUY SOMETHING MEISTER!!!........................................ ..........Go on!

Hey PJ, you pick a Russian bird or a rare German bird, and I'll dontate all my research and drawings.

As for the He 112, would you be looking at the early version with the razorback/turtledeck, or the B model with the almost bubble canopy? I like the idea of something different of course, and all the He100 to He112's are great looking planes that fly well.

Early Model:




Late Model:







PS: When do you think you guys will be done with the Fw 190D9 glass fuse?
