1/48 (?) - Pilatus PC-21 by Hobby Boss - rumour...


Recommended Posts

Found in the Weibo from one of the most talentuous Trumpy Boss Chinese illustrator, Yiming Zhang: a Pilatus PC-21!

The next Hobby Boss secret project after the 1/48th Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234948314-148-embraer-emb-314-super-tucano-by-hobby-boss-released-avm-usaf-conversion-set/ ) ?

To be followed.

Not to seem ungrateful, but a non-resin PC-7 and PC-9 would be nicer. So many colour schemes and markings...I.

I understand where you're coming from in terms of the colour schemes/users arguments, but the PC-21 is just so COOL!

Personally I've little interest in turbo-prop trainers, but I would definitely buy a good 1/48 PC-21, particularly having seen one displayed at Axalp a few years ago. The PC-7 I can take or leave, but I always thought the PC-9 was one of the ugliest planes ever built.....donning tin hat and getting into trench now!

I would welcome it very much!

Turbo porp trainers are really nice and underrepresented aircraft in a great variety of color schemes and operators!

the PC-21 is just starting to spread... (Switzerland, Australia, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Quatar, Singapour)

:) :)

PC-21 will more than likely better both PC-7 and PC-9 family in term of sales, adding to mentioned list there are plenty of potential buyers in Europe alone ( Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Portugal ) not to mention rest of the world.

Would love someone to do it, but would prefer likes of Revell than HB, aside from PC-21, would like to see legacy PC-7 and PC-9M.

For all the historical subjects that have been kitted, there are still many types in current military service, some of them quite widely used, that have rarely or never been so. The Pilatus trainers are glaringly obvious examples, as too are many modern helicopter types. I would happily build a PC-9 or PC-21.

you make an excellent case for kiting this plane.  I did not realise it was so widely used.  It is certainly a beautiful aircraft and with the right scheme it would really pop

 

Here is another option (this I would build!):

Excellent point; I'd also add that the Beechcraft T-6 Texan II (also of Pilatus lineage, of course) could do with a mainstream kit, too.
