I guess P-38 if it’s a new “new” subject or perhaps a 1/32 Bf 109G-6 if “big” announcement is a hint 🤷‍♂️

I am ok with a P-38 but NOT ok with yet another 109.

Sarcasm on

 

They will finally announce that they are working to release the complete F-16 family on both scales?

They will announce their very special 1/72 F-14D Tomcat and completely skip A early, A late and B variants just to make 1/72 people sad like they did for the F-16 and the 1/48 crowd?

Another BF-109?

A freaking 1/32/5/whatever Tiger to resurrect Aeris?

 

Tamiya is the Baghdad Bob of the scale modelling industry

We sorely need a accurate D/H Huey. I have no faith Kitty Hawk will correct the errors of their 1/48 kit when they upsize it and a state of the art large scale AH-1G Cobra is sorely needed too.

Tamiya showed first information about P-38 on last Shizouka show.

Looking at the sneak preview pictures, my guess is its some US aircraft from WW2.

I am also hoping this is true!   I didn’t realize Tamiya had previously shown P-38 info.   I just was guessing based on the discussion in the props thread.

Looking at the sneak peek photos I think it is definitely a P-38.  Just which scale and version?

P-38. One pict is of the horizontal stab one other the lower forward nacelle where the outer wing intersects the nacelle.

I know the pics show a P-38, but I'm sure it'll be retooled at the last second to be yet another Me-109 or Fw-190 or a Spitfire.

What errors? Floyd Werner and another fellow did the research, and you don't get better than that. Yes there were a couple small errors that are easy to fix. I'm waiting for the 1/35th scale version.

The most accurate kit on the market and less effort to correct ANY errors than the previous offerings. I'll take what I can get.

Scissors are way off, stabilizer bar way to low, access panels thicker than armour plating. All are very noticeable and make for a unrealistic model. Heck Revells ancient kit has those parts right.
