    RE: Warbird Choices

    Yeah...somebody posted a big picture of a Typhoon...now who was that? Or how about a Tempest?

    Personally, I would prefer the 60-1.00 size whatever it ends up being [8D]


    The Dewotine 520 (it is the 520 that's the cool looking one, right? ) would be awesome...


    And I forgot to say...thanks for asking Mike [8D]

    RE: Warbird Choices

    I also like the Typhoon/Tempest idea...having already built another Hawker aircraft...and my mouth waters at the idea of something
    like a Macchi or Yak...although H9 is not moving in that direction,....I'll gladly scratchbuild those!!

    Yessss GO SEAHAWKS!!!

    That would be a nice bird! Here's another vote for it too - in the .60 to 1.00 size, of course.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Has the Hawker Hurricane been nominated yet?

    If not, it's another plane that is well worth considering. With retracts and flaps, please.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Since KMP did a Hurri and it turned out nice, a 60 size would be a repeat.

    But a Hanger 9 1.50/ 50cc Hurri would be most welcome. I'd buy two !

    Ok, Ok I'll bite on the trolling! [sm=drowning.gif]
    ----- I'd buy, and I do buy, in the .60-1.00 size, but never the bigger size. (said again just for clarities sake) KaChing!!

    And now back to ...... [sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

    I still think an flap update of the current Corsair would be a huge success.
    Now 'THAT' I would be buying at least two of. Just like I have two Stearmans now - and plan on getting a third! Also bought the GP P-6E Hawk. Another in the .60-1.00 size range.

    Hanger 9 - do you see a trend here on where my money is going and what I'm spending it on and what I would be buying?[sm=greedy.gif]

    Another candidate - a Bucker Jungmeister. One of Germanys pre-war 'trainers'. In .60-1.00 size, of course.

    I don't care what anybody does except please, please, PLEASE someone disable the [8D][&:][>:][X(][:@][:'(][][:-][&o] thingies on Ramon's computer!

    That said, give me anything (think P-26 Peashooter, F11C2 Goshawk, Beech Staggerwing) in the 50cc range and that's where I'll spend my $. Pretty much anything with a round engine please.

    Thanks for asking Mike.
    ...and then the unthinkable happened!

    A big challenge is a DO-335 designed for both glow and electric. Matt covering would be a big difference with competitors.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    BEAUFIGHTER!!!!

    93" like the Traplet plans. There is a laser kit available out of France but it is the only one I can find anywhere. There are plenty of Mosquito kits and other warbirds, but there is a distinct lack of Beaufighters anywhere.

    Dave

    By the way Mike, Hangar 9 need to start leading the way and glueing their ARFs better. The Corsair has received a fair bit of criticism and I am in the process of stripping and re-glueing mine at the moment.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Dave,

    I suggested the Beau to the guys at KMP/YT as it seems they're really into doing more of the unusual birds, wouldn't that just be the cat's whiskers if there was a beaufighter available ? With the short nose it would have to be a gasser, twin G-26's would be perfect.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Since an ARF company's main goal is to maximize profit, you got to ask yourself a simple question: "Would plane X bring in as much profit as plane Y or plane Z?"

    RE: Warbird Choices

    And sometimes you gotta throw caution to the wind, grow some brass balls and just make a statement [:-] I'll bet there are plenty of Brits and Aussies (And some Yanks) who would love to tuck a Beaufighter into their Hanger without all the hassle of scratchbuilding one from a kit.

    Always two sides to the coin....

    Cheers,

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Anything Russian!
    Someone name one decent Russian ARF on the market.

    Yak, Lagg, La-5, La-7, I-15, I-16, Mig-3 Any will do nicely!

    Next british:

    Hurricane, Typhoon, Whirlwind

    American:
    Haven't they all been done?

    German:
    Am I the only one who doesn't care for Nazi's?

    Italian:
    Macchi MC200, or 202

    Jap:
    Ki-43 would be unique for sure.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Nice selection Yee-ha.....though the Jerry planes do have their appeal, especially in the camo department, but a monokoted german fighter is kinda ugly.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    BF109's were also flown by the Swiss and Russians. So there are other Alternative schemes for the 109 other than
    the German camo...

    RE: Warbird Choices

    A 60size Yak 9 would be real sweet, I'm thinking of an electric conversion down the road and that would be perfect. Though my first choice of a Dauntless or Helldiver would what I'm looking for.

    This hobby is just out of control, waaaaayyy too many planes to build, buy or assemble....[sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

    Hey Mike - Still with us or have you got the information to support a plane already in the makes ?

    My vote

    Dauntless Dauntless Dauntless Dauntless in the 1.50 range. Oh, and did I say that a Dauntless would be a good choice. The Skyshark is too small.

    RE: Warbird Choices

    Well, after looking at this thread I would pull the following out as good contenders (In no particular order);

    Stuka
    Hurricane
    La-5
    TBM Avenger (working torpedo doors of course)
    Hellcat
    FW-190A-4 (You could add fiberglass gun cover for those wanting to convert to the A-8)

    I would prefer matt finish and at least 80" span to make small gas engines viable (hmmm...who was it that was carrying the Evolution engines?).
