  1. Well, I didn't ask, but I am sure and assuming it is the Revell Skycrane you are thinking of..... the post does say 1/72 scale..... so I am 'assuming'...... and there again it would be great for a new Sky Crane.... we are due , I'd say....

    I have always wondered, if I was the ONLY one interested in this machine ( I guess not wahoo!!) as most of the model guys all want the big military iron. And as it is one of if not the highest manufactured helicopter in real life, how does it go without love in the model world? I do hope that IF there ever is a good one, it is a true 206 and not a Kiowa that has to be modified as there are some stark differences................ I am still hopeful.... and I am feeling better there are you guys out there that are interested in this as well..... kind of a warm and fuzzy feeling...🤗
  3. I was lucky to have one in my stash, and Mike says he will open one month, close the next to fill the orders, then the following month open, then the next close to fill orders, so every other month open and the next closed... makes sense, as he is a one man show and doesn't want to make a bad impression or ruin his business, I can live with that personally, at least he isn't taking many orders and lots of money and not fulfilling them in a timely manner... this is a great solution I'd say.... it is certainly workable from both sides, as long as we are patient.... his stuff is really good, and I am willing to work with him on this. Not like it is a matter of life and death..... I've had kits in my stash for years.. so a month or two ether way is no big deal.... so I am patiently waiting with anticipation...... Jeff
  4. Hey guys, not sure if this has been posted here before, I looked but didn't see it, which is no surprise as I can't usually find the milk in the fridge either, but Mike West at Lone Star Models has a Fire Bomber conversion for the Skycrane. I saw it on another site, and emailed him to ask if it was true or is it a tease, ( so much fake news these days) and he assured me it is happening, but a month or so out as the decals have been drawn but not printed just yet............... my apologies if the is "old" news, but for a guy like who is interested in this stuff, this is exciting... https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/new-1-72-fire-bomber-conversion-set-and-1-72-pb4y2-t512289.html#p2704670
  5. Thanks Zak, I sure hope it is there, BUT I will say that I spoke with Mike at lone Star models and he is doing an airtanker conversion in 1/72 for the Aircrane..... so that is a good step, but still not a 206....... if you come across anything, I'm all ears ... Jeff
  6. Yeah, thanks, that gives us some hope............... I'd be in for at least 6 maybe even 12..... just don't tell my wife.....
