  1. It's the MS 406 family. Heavy losses during the German France Invasion, fought also against Italians, had the polish squares nsigna in its fuselage side during France campaign, it is the only aircraft still operational at the end of WWII and a Swiss version was produced till the 1949.
  2. for me it's perfect also a new correct Macchi C 202/205 , oc course ! And If IBG made it I'm the first to run for buying !
  3. I hope to see the same attention on details and kit engineering on a more interesting subject in a next future. A P51A, or a Tempest, or others of this category of subjects. Good luck to IBG.
  4. from modelforum.cz: Alfred Riedel from SH answering to some questions about the new P36: Ta P-36 bude malá nebo ve čtvrtce? Odesláno z mého Redmi Note 9 Pro pomocí Tapatalk Určitě 1/72 a pak se uvidí JimiX píše:Á, výborně... Na Hawka jsem velmi zvědavej. Bude se blížit stylem stavebnice spíš Warhawkům, nebo stodevítce? Díky za odpověď. Já bych si přál, aby byl zpracován jako Bf 109E jenda58 píše:Tak za P-36 . Budou obě motorové verze? Ano, a podvozkové taky. The P36 is in1/72 quality : wishing a 109E quality Different parts for different versions
  5. As Eduard is launching Tora Tora Tora operation with Zero in 48 scale, is it possible SpecialHobby launchs the P36 around the first week of december ...
  6. Tamiya covers only some versions while in the Eduard's intention the complete family is covered, probably with all the differences in the wing installations and panels and so on. So for all Zeroalcoolik the answer is: Tamiya is not enough !
  7. Mr Sulc , Eduard chef, answering about the possibilities to see the TORA TORA TORA Project declinated also in 72 scale, has declared: "My si určitě uděláme svoje Zero v 1/72. " (source: modelforum.cz) Translated: a family of Zero in 72scale by Eduard is in Eduard's plans of the next future.
  8. T6 Texan, among the versions also the "Zero" conversion for movies and air shows!
  9. Well, I think they are ex-dragon instead of Hasegawa origin. Why? Beacause the Hasegawa kit is too old for having a kind of interest by a firm like Hobby2000, and plus because the only P38M on the market was by Dragon ( I don't consider the older Revell P38M, a vintage kit).
  10. I mean that after the 1/32 Cobra ICM 'd have plans for a new Cobra in 1/35 scale also. I Know about the 32 one.
  11. Surfing on net, I read from the same ICM "net" advisor they have plans for a Cobra (G version- we can suppose a family) also in 1/35 scale, first he's spoken about something unespected and interesting for the next year, than he's spoken about the plans for a kit in 1/35 scale. So after the 32 scale one we could see a new 35 scale Cobra from the same ICM.
  12. that's right. Assuming all the points by our polish friend are good, IBG can not produce or is not convenient it produces( because Eduard or SpecialHobby or ArmaHobby or other brand competition) che following: Tempest Family ( SpecialHobby and Eduard have interest in it and no polish/RAF squadron ), P40 Family ( SpecialHobby has a recent family of good quality - even if the P40 and B/C versions are out of the family and Airfix is not so good and easily outclassed ), Typhoon Family (because no polish squadron flew it), P51 ( because Eduard promised B/C and D/K in a not so distant future - about 2023/24 - it is not sure the Allison versions will be coverd, anyway ... and also ArmaHobby announced a P51B/C ), 109 anyversion ( because Eduard and SpecialHobby ), Fw 190 ( because Eduard), Hurrycane ( because the recent ArmaHobbyFamily), I16 (because ICM and the russian subjects are a bad investment), Yak 9 ( too complicated for too many versions and differences and russian subject ) ... all these types are excluded ... so it seems IBG has little alternative for a next good investment and kit with really god business potential ... it's not so and it is not so because IBG makes business and in the business is possible to find competitors with your same articles. Two years ago ArmaHobby did the Hurricane despite the Revell and Hasegawa kits, and also the recent Hobby2000 reboxes ... Arma makes a good and better kit in comparison with the other brands. So IBG now need to leave making polish fighter with no hope of good performances in the business and make a type that also in presence of competitors is better, because IBG is in the business and making business is fighting. So with classic subjects , another classic is the Spitfire MkVb and c versions, IBG can have really good opportunities to make money ... Eduard will realise its early Merlin Spitfires from the 2023 ... so there's the time to sold a lot of kits before a competitor arrives. So for other classic items. It's business, it's a risky opportunities for invest money, but it cannot be pretend there's no risk at all in a market without competition ! At the moment it seems that the "classic WWII" items with sure potential are all covered ( I could also put in the classic group Stuka, BF 110, Beaufighter, Mosquito ... may be P38 and P39 is out of the count, but are nor used by polish ( may be P39 ). Considering my wish, I hope the following news: Allison P51 family, Curtiss Hwak 75 / P40 and P40B/C family, Macchi 200/202/205 Family . Allison P51 is not well coverd at the moment, an accurate kit is needed. The same for the Hawk 75/P36/early P40, Airfix recent issue is not so good details, there a lot of space for improvements. About the Macchi C 200 /202/205 family ... the first subject, macchi C200, is covered badly by a recent HobbyBoss easy line kit, AML made also a kit not exaclty so easy to build, a real short run. Macchi C 202 is covered by Hasegawa and than Italeri ( this is a kind of clone of the Hasegawa ones, with worse details in some area and better rendition only of the undercarriage) but Hasegawa kit has a lot of problems of shape and proportion, so it is for the 205 that descends from the C 202. So this italian family of fighter could be a nice and interesting options from the business point of view. Italian Macchis are nice shape aircraft, with attractive and different camouflage, IBG could think to these ... as IBG thinks in 35 scale to some italian items ( and we hope it's only a beginning ). We'll see the surprices sooner or later ... I hope for something really international and not so strictly polish in the future. Let's cross our fingers. Ciao
  13. If a Yak1M sells good, I can imagine that the same performance is in the possibility of a good Yak 9 ( I want to limit all to the main D version ). I follow from years the personal "J.Thompson Battle" for a new Yak 9 family, a new kit would be more than welcome also by me, of course, and I'm surprised that main Est companies from Russia and Ucrainia seem to ignore this type ( I mean the main brands, Amodel has done its part in the battle!). It's incredible that the type is apparently ignored in any scale despite its history and its performance during WWII. The last operative version, Yak 9U, so well performed that I read the order for the luftwaffe gruppe was to avoid and escape by the involvement in air combat with Yak 9 U equipped formations ! May be only a mith ? May be, anyway in such a way the Yak 9 is still ignored by the main brands seems to be out of any logical human comprehension! Airfix in the 70 had a kit, one of the first produced kit of the type and one of the first items in the Airfix catalogue ... at that time the new projects offices studying the history deeper than today ? Of course a certain part in this story is the not so spread high numbers of images and pictures of Yak 9 available, making a simple search on web, give poor results. Mainly the same images. Does it depend on this ? mah ... hard to Know.
