    So what kits are you eyeing for your stash, looking to build someday?

    One of mine is the Special Hobby 1/48 BR.20 - I love the Italian camo scheme but I just don't have the airbrush skills to pull it off. :( Maybe someday...

    My goal is to build at least one of each type of Night Fighter used in WW2. I currently have an example from each major country but still looking. :)

    A noble cause! Which reminds me of another "wish list" kit - the Italeri Tigercat. Check out this site for a great video of a restored Tigercat...

    I want a 1/48 Me-410.

    I saw the Pro-modeler one at one of my local stores but the owner had tracked it down for someone and has two others waiting for the same kit.

    I have been after the Dragon 1:72 Horten IX for atleast 10 years -am always seeing it advertised in their catalogues (this year included), but no-one seems to be able to order it, no reviews for it on the net either...

    Evan, I'm not sure but the Dragon kit might have been re-boxed and offered by Revell.

    Don't trust that kit. Mine was a mess.

    Love a 1/48 FW 190D or even in 1/32. Have none at the moment.

    and Wayne, I'm with ya. I have stopped buying any models for 2 years now. I have far too many.

    That's what YOU think. I've got the perfect kit for you! HobbyBoss is coming out next month with a 1/72 Dora Railway gun.

    [​IMG]

    From Squadron's November catalogue...

    Krupp's 2nd 1350 tonne WWII era railway heavy siege gun. Kit consists of 1767 parts and features accurately molded massive dual-hull superstructure, 4 bogie span bolsters (with asymmetric left and right assemblies), control room, and complex gun carriage - all supporting an exceptional weapon with rifled barrel. Also includes injection-molded railings and ladders, shells, charges, 2 ammunition elevators, display base (side-by-side railway tracks with bed), plus photo-etch parts (6 frets including walkways and load bearing platform elements). Assembled gun is adjustable in elevation (includes breech ballast for balance) and completed length is approximately 43.75".


    :shock:

    I'll wait for 1/32.... That should make it about 8 feet long.

    I've got a stash of at least 20 unbuilt planes and half again as many unbuilt 1/700 waterline ships. And I normally blanch when I see the pricetags on most models today. But there are a few thing's I'd sell my two granddaughters for:

    (1) A reissue of the old Williams Brothers 1/32 Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk USS Macon airship fighter with photo-etched pieces and sheet styrene allowing you to create a diorama of the plane in the airship's hangar.
    (2) A good styrene 1/24 Polikarpov I-16
    (3) A good styrene 1/24 scale Me-163 or Bachem Natter
    (4) A good 1/48 or 1/32 He-112B
    (5) A large, accurate (1/400 or 1/350) plastic kit of USS Macon or any other rigid airship (there have never been any good plastic airship kits, period)
    (6) ditto the above in 1/700 scale
    (7) A 1/32 Aichi Seiran complete with catapult and appropriate deck/superstructure sections of an I-400 submarine

    Dzieki my friend, but it's not the same kit unfortunately.

    I have 2 Revells, and while they are very nice (much better than the PM kit!), the Dragon kit is more fully and accurately detailed - complete with Jumo engines!

    Well I just pre-ordered it, lol. Thought it about it for a few days after I got the catalogue - it was eating away at my brain saying, "John, you know you want me, you know you do," Yeah, I'm not susceptible to glitzy advertising...I can't build the thing though - maybe someday I'll have the skills for it.
