As far as I know Eduard is planning to release late FW 190 this year. I don't remember the release date, but some say sth about summer.

I was interested to see the Hawker Demon in this list, which was not produced in the earlier run of Hart kits. Can I ask if you noticed the thread last year which showed that the Demon had a lowered top to the rear fuselage? No other 1/72 kit has captured this.

This one Grahame. Don't get into a sweat trying to find one. All they did was throw the Hind kit into a box with different decals (which are not accurate for the first one anyway).

They completely ignored the 2nd (Starb) forward firing gun on the mouldings. One was supposed to take a knive and carve it's position out from the fuselage sides yourself. Pure slackness.

There was talk at one point about a short-run F7F Tigercat. Is this still planned?

I would be very happy to see this come to pass, but I can wait for progress. Hopefully your expansion is exponential but still manageable Petr, We all want to see you do well on account of your interest and dedication in seeing our interests met. There is room for short run kits FOR EXPERIENCED MODELLERS and we all love the HQ kits you have produced as well. Doing some cutting and shape adjustment is the least of my concerns if it means we are getting a kit otherwise unavailable to us.

I would like to see Grumman Goose available again. Maybe I'm alone with this idea.

You're not alone - count me in, too!

Cheers,

Bill

It would be really nice to see the Gauntlet kit with a new resin ? Alvis Leonides engine and cowling and markings (including civilian serial) for the currently flying example in Finland

if you need any detail references for it I can happily provide lots of photographs of the machine taken over the past ten or so years :)

cheers, Joe

I suppose it is not really within the types of aircraft AZmodel normally do, but the world really need a brand new 1/72 Heinkel He 115! If any manufacturer would like to do one, I have brand new scale plans made from measuring the sample currently under restoration in Norway.

I'd rather like a few neglected British types:

De Havilland Moth Coupe

De Havilland Don

Hawker Hotspur

Hawker Henley

Friends,

The DH Don I really like it. Very nice.

They're on the plane some more drawings and photographs.

I think I could make it. Although only in the short run, but I think you'll like it.

Along with MB-5, which is already in preparation is another beautiful piece.

YESSSS!

You like it then, eh? I'm more partial to the MB 2 - the MB 5 looks too much like a Mustang. But what do I know? Winkle Brown liked the MB 5, and he actually flew the thing.

Cheers,

Bill

My personal favourite is the mighty MB3 for looks, but the MB5 is still amazingly cool indeed. Luft 46 my maiden aunt, it would have been eating Nazi Superscience for breakfast.

Methknks it's great news. Even if it's short run I'll buy at least one MB5. Great plane.

Yeah, I probably will too, just because I like oddball subjects. Although I did just buy that Fine Molds F-14, but I swear it will be the last one! :)

What about modern, accurate kits of the PZL.23 and PZL.37 in 1/72nd? The old Heller 23 is short on detail and has some shape inaccuracies, and there really is no good 37.

'Course I'll buy an AZ MB5, I already have a Skybirds one, so why wouldn't I? :D

Since we seem to be wishing for esoteric types (no, I'm not counting the MB5 among them):

Why not the shapely little Piaggio P.136L amphibian?

She was Italy's first commercial a/c project after the war and she looks a bit like a twin-engined Republic Seabee.

There was a vacformed Broplan kit long ago. If you Google the Piaggio for pictures, you'll see that there's no shortage of colourful liveries.

And she's kind of cute…

Kind regards,

Joachim

OK, if we're punting:

Koolhoven FK58

Curtiss-Wright CW21

Arsenal VG33

Vultee P-66

That ought to occupy me for a while!
