    I remember about a year or so ago, we were all agog over the 1/32 scale 21St Century Toys models. IIRC, they had a Corsair, Macchi 202, BF109F, and others. They seemed to be of decent quality, especially for the price.

    But I haven't seen any for quite a while. I don't remember seeing them anywhere but Wal-Mart. I have seen them advertised on-line at Target, but the price is over twice that Wal-Mart was selling them for. Maybe Wal-Mart was asking for too big a price cut and 21st told them to go fish.

    That's the other thing on my mind. Apparently Wal-Mart is getting out of the model business. While I really hate the Wal-Mart business model and what they do to local economies, they were pretty much the only source of entry-level or intermediate models.

    Good thread!
    I wanted to ask for the same thing. My American friend sent a beautiful P-51B as a Xmas present for my son and I´m really surprised by the quality for this price. I´d like to buy more models in this scale but don´t know if I have a chance here in Europe. Do they produce a P-38 as well?

    I really like the Zero. I have a Razorback P-47 "Jabo" that I bought from the museum a few years ago. I wanted more, but the missus wasn't pleased with the P-47. She does put up with it though.

    They've also made SMALL models with decent detail as well. I want to know if there is any other company that sells aircraft this small for the detail (if I did this right hopfully my pics are availiable to load! :oops: )

    I know it well. I used to work there. There was a huge Department of Energy science project back in the early 90's called the superconducting super collider and I worked there for two years. After it got all political and the democraps shut it down and there wasn't anything to do, I used to go downtown every day and go shopping or watch a movie.
