They got beat to the 1.48 F-5 so looks like they will put the cad etc to use in doing 1.32

1/48 Blenheim Family- nice - that will save paying extortionate prices for one

I would like to think otherwise, but given Companies track record I would be very sceptical, much larger and experienced manufacturers would

struggle to tool before mentioned list....Wish them all the best but seems a bit diletant to publish such a list

given huge amount of resources needed to turn out those subjects...hope they prove me wrong...

Quote your words, perhaps an attempt to block possible competing projects.

This can work... if the announcing company actually releases something...

1/32 F-5A family is needed, then we can do Canadian aircraft

Just read a post over on ARC that SR-71 test shots have been spotted, but no pictures.

A new tool and well done SR-71 has been a dream of mine for a fair while.

A nice new Blenheim MK iV in 48th would land nicely, I think. Pretty big gap in the market for such an important plane.

I have the 1/48 F-5A released under the Tiger label, and it will not be buildt anytime soon. So if this is to be anything to compare with they must do much better work, on molds, decals and accuracy.

But model companys have learned before, and will again so we'll just have to wait and see.

Here you go. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=281718&view=findpost&p=2682540 I would like to see pictures of the test shot.

Although the poster does say "test shot for first kit" Perhaps he didn't mean the SR, and I let my enthusiasm run away with me (again).

Apologies if I am mistaken.

No he didn't mean the SR-71 but the Tanmodel first kit, the 1/72nd Hurkus-A: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234965759-tanmodel-172-tai-hurkus-a/

The next Tanmodel kit should be a 1/48th RF-84F Thunderflash: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234967246-148-republic-rf-84f-thunderflash-by-tanmodel-cads-in-progress-box-art/

Tanmodel has recently announced having started the design from a 1/72nd Buccaneer S.2: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234974428-172-blackburn-buccaneer-s2-by-tanmodel-design-started/

Yep,

He says after the permission both from the Chief of the Turkish General Staff and Commander of the Turkish Air Force, they'll laser scan the aircraft for their projects of 1/32 scale F-5A, F-5B, T-38 Talon, F-4E (RF-4E) and 1/48 scale T-37.

I see the CN235 & 295 are now in 1/72nd scale, was a bit put off by the previous 1/48th scale but 72nd is much more manageable and wil fit on a UK sized shelf! Probably get a few if the price is right.
