Ummm...is it just me, or do the props have the blades the wrong way. Those appear to be left hand (cockpit perspective) props. That's a big flaming model.

Dream come true for me but the rivet counters at Hyperscale are out in force

I really really didn't need this right now.

I just wish I could see the B-25 in the box BEFORE I buy, and BEFORE they are all sold, so I can make a purchasing decision based on how far this company's products are removed from Trumpeter/Hobbytoss the overall kit is. I.e. fidelity of scale, finesse of moulding with regard to overall presentation etc.

As a dedicated 1/32 scale modeller I'm amazed by this but it is far too big for me, I would have to build it and bin it, shame.

I'd love to have a go at one. If one started taking shape in my den the wife would think I was planning a Colditz style escape....gliding over the back garden,clearing the fence only to crash into the river short of my landing ground!

Yeah - Just imagine - Superdetail, resin accessories, photoetch, super paint job, aftermarket decals, 15 months hard grind, then have a street party and take to it with a chainsaw and sledgehammer.... then hara-kiri????????

Looks faaaantastic, just a bit too big for my personal taste - the Revell 1/48 G is plenty big enough for me :)

Not quite - although I do have access to one :)

I already have two versions of Doug Feeney's ID Models B-17s in the loft - a very early one with the original fin and an F/G.

This will make things a *lot* quicker - and I think I may need two - one as a G and one to convert back using the ID Models back end :)

Be nice if they did a B-24 to go alongside the B-17

build it then sell it, anything you made back on it would be a bonus as you've had your fun with it anyway!

I could be tempted by a B25 if they did the 8 gun hard nose version.

You mean like these:

North American B-25J Mitchell "Gunship"

and

North American B-25H Mitchell "Gunship"

Liberator would be ace - but I'm really looking forward to the Invader (I have a started Vietnam B-26K vac somewhere in the loft)!

Well, I wanna get one of the Gun Nose Mitchells, but a 32nd B-17?.
Nahh. :fraidnot:
Too big.
As for a 32nd Liberator...have you any idea what the wingspan would be? :gobsmacked:
