1/72 Heavies, What would you like to see?

Recommended Posts

Definitely a new tool MODERN B-1B, with Sniper pylons and either bomb racks or a CSRL, and a B-52H. I have too many fast movers and not enough heavy iron. Plus, Bones and Buffs seem to have more character.

2. YB40

3. Neptune (can't remember all the numbers)

4. a whole series of the Northrup flying wings

5. revised hailfax with a radial version as well

6. a new HS 177

7. a new B17E

8. a new B17C

9. B24M

10. I no it's not a heavy, but how about a new Pe-2?

C-123 all variants, so we don't have to deal with the Mach 2 "kit".

Larry

and there's many different variants of this bird alone! I'd like to do a couple special ops birds that made insertions into North Vietnam and maybe some Bright Lite stuff

I am for new C-130 models, but I want to see some of the early versions too, C-130A, B and some other non transport variants like the gunships and drone control. I also want to see some early B-25s like the B,C and D. Also new tool B-52s, especially the early ones.

Any E-3 (A/B/etc) AWACS well detailed and with acurate engines. Ohh yeah, and including the ESM Bumps!!

Please! I would give my left arm and both of my legs for new tools of these:

All of the C-135 series. Release a baseline kit and let us buy the neccessary conversions/upgrades to model any aircraft. Something like the current weapons sets that are out today would work for that. Having all of the conversions/upgrades in injection moldings.

An up to date B-52H. Again, conversions could be done in injection moldings. A D model would also be killer.

A new tool B-1B, but in 1/48. I would do 1/72 if it was detailed enough.

A new tool B-36 would be awsome, but I guess I won't see that in my life time.

That's about all I have for right now.

RYAN.

UM released a series of them, it is a really nice looking kit. Recessed panel lines and options to make all of the various versions. They're are still available out there at some retailers.

Bristol Britannia (Perhaps in an option kit of the above Canadair kit, all plastic)

Short Belfast (all plastic)

Blackburn Beverly (all plastic)

Douglas C-133 (all plastic)

A.W. Argosy (a/p)

Lockheed C-130A/E/H/J Hercules (accurised a/p)

Junkers Ju-390 (a/p)

All the Airbus twins and their variants military and civilian (a/p)

Airbus A340 (all plastic)

Airbus A380 (all plastic)

Kawasaki C1 and the new C2 (a/p)

Beriev Be-10 (a/p but fibreglass would do)

Chinese Turboprop version of the Tu-4 (B-29, probably also as a conversion kit)

I approve of this statement.

YES PLEASE!!!! There are numerous threads asking for aftermarket parts or a new tool. We need a 1/72 B-1B. Is anyone listening? I think the B-1B fans have been asking for a new one for what???? 15 YEARS NOW!?

Heck I would love a new 1/72 B-1. Hasegawa would be my preference though. If one of the Chinese manufactures does it theres no way I will buy it. Kinda sick of seeing all these new kits that are nowhere near accurate and have those godawful trench line and pothole surface detail. Just my 2cents.
