    Hello everyone,

    A while ago someone posted a thread about where you could find 21st century toys. On that thread I had a question that I want to make into a new thread. I was wondering- does anyone know where to find miniature aircraft models?

    I'm not familiar with scale sizes but I'm looking for aircraft not much bigger than a large coin.

    These are webcam pics of what I have and what I'm looking for size-wise...

    Thanks8)

    Revell (Germany) do a number of kits in this size (can't remember the scale exactly) -I think they go by the name 'Revell mini kits', some of which come as a boxed set of 3 different aircraft. Most subjects seem to be modern aircraft, mostly American types, and are prepainted. You just need to 'snap' them together.

    Do you have any information about 1/432 size? I'm trying to find some of the older "cruver" or similar models, for non-US countries. It's tough to find them...

    I remember seeing these. I saw a lot of them at a hobby store while I was on a small vacation....but go figure- I can't find them in my town :rolleyes: . I'll just have to look around for these some more- they're out there somewhere!

    I got your PM courgar.

    For the most part I'm trying to find most of the WWII planes you could find in the 1:72 scale (I believe this is the more common scale for models), but smaller. I'd collect the larger models but I'm kinda short on space at the moment.

    You should be able to get the Revell kits through the net, Velius. If not, let me know what you're after and I can try and get them for you in Hungary.

    I had/have an idea of trying to model mini aircraft out of wood from a WWII aircraft spotter playing card deck I have that have 3-veiw drawings of aircraft. They seem 'bout the right size too.

    No worries mate, I can only use the net at work myself (you will notice long absences when we're really busy). Just say the word if you need anything, and I'll see what I can do.
