  1. Hence, they calculate opportunity cost too.
  2. I think you are explaining opportunity cost here.
  3. For my wallet and conscience what would be a relief.
  4. I still hope Tamiya starts with WWI, downsized Mk. IV tank would be nice.
  5. Good look! Airliners modelling was really hit by that conflict. About name, I think it should be unique, so Google search doesn't return funny results. Maybe name of oblast or city you are located could be used? Anyway, if you are going to produce mostly airliners, then my idea is "UAliner" or "UR-liner". PS. I would love to make IL-62m in Ukraine government markings, I hope someone will pick up idea!
  6. At this point I wonder if Eduard will re-release L-39 Albatross in pixel camouflage.
  7. Going by current trends, maybe another Bayraktar? Poland have ordered them too.
  8. HMS Conqueror from MikroMir in 1/350, pictures from Facebook profile. Additional note:
  9. Source: Link (Facebook)
  10. Going by Japanese hint, a new Val is my guess too. First three Japanese aircraft I read about were "Zero, Kate and Val", and first two are pretty well covered. Also Polish connection isn't a important factor any more.
  11. Hellenic air forces used them in combat too, some were sold to Turkey.
  12. And it's already posted on Tamiya blog: Tamiya Featured Releases Early 2022 that would have presented at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2022 Static Models: Military Models 32601 1/48 British Main Battle Tank Challenger 2 (Desertised) 32603 1/48 German Heavy Tank Tiger I Early Prod.

  13. According to third person message on airlinercafe, owner is aware of problem. https://www.airlinercafe.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=11795
  14. In 1/72 scale it would be over 1 meter long. I rather expect it to be 1/144. There is nice visualisation of this ekranoplan:
  15. Transport aircraft used in civilian use or the other way from 40's would be nice and be closer to your main are of interest, like de Havilland DH.91 Albatross, Avro York (for example LV633 Ascalon, Churchill's personal aircraft.), Vickers VC.1 Viking, Avro Lancastrian. and such.
  16. Is that just a wish, or if not may I ask for source?
  17. According to Answer Plastic Kits comment under post about TS-8, if everything goes well kit will be released in May.
  18. For first, It can't be bought, last time Revell released A330 in 2013, according to scalemates.

  20. So Martinet is from Smer, C-47is from Airfix
  21. I'm bit disappointed by kits chosen to be released in 1/144 scale. I hoped some older kits with no other kits in mentioned scale would appear, like Fokker 100, which are hard to obtain and have to be search as second-hand.
