EMB-314 Super Tucano - 1:48 Hobbyboss


Recommended Posts

Arrrrrgh what I wouldn't give for one in glorious 72nd.

HobbyBoss almost always scale down their 1/48 projects to 1/72, sometimes Trumpeter also scale up those for 1/32 too. So, it is not wrong to dream. :rolleyes:/>

Then dream i will. I'd get the duarte kit if i knew a supplier.

Mr FCM, a little off topic here but did you at one point do a decals sheet in 1/72 for the smoke squadron's current scheme?

To make a decal sheet in 1/72 for the smoke squadron's current scheme, applied on the Super Tucano, I need to wait for HobbyBoss scale down their kit... As I know, today there is only one Super Tucano in 1/72 scale, the Duarte's resin kit, and a resin kit does not create the potential market to justify the costs to produce a decal. You may notice that there is no decal maker producing decals for resin kits...

Meanwhile for the new HB kit it is a possibility, but the extremely colorful markings, can be an expensive decal...

Today it is possible for T-27 Tucano, considering the Premiere kit.

Price-wise, what's you guess? I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say the $68-$75 range.

Eric

How did you get to that price?

HB 1/48 Hellcat is about 18USD, F-105 costs 37USD in Hong Kong, +postage.

If that kit costs more than 25USD I'll be surprised.

I'd love to get my hands on this one ASAP. Thanks Hobby Boss!

But how come Hobby Boss's own website doesn't show it at all?!

I have been looking for an EMB-312 Tucano in plastic forever but none is available, only in resin from hobbymex store in Mexico for $100 at that!!!

Could anyone please update us as soon as it becomes available? I believe it should be around $40.00 + shipping.
