Eduard - leaflet for distributors

Recommended Posts

Yeah, four Hornets vs one Su-22; must have been one heck of a battle.

Interesting markings though. 

 

Looking fwd to the imminent release of the 1/32 Brassin AIM-4D Falcons. Lots of scratchbuilding in store to make the L-series rails to put them on an F-4E.

Eduard leaflet for distributors June 2019

 

June 2019

The intro from Mr Sulc indicates that the 1/144 Fw 190D-9 is a reissue of the Sweet kit. I assume he means Platz because I don't recall Sweet ever doing a kit of this aircraft. I suppose it could also be from F-Toys, but I'm hoping for the Platz kit.

I have already reserved some at Hannants and a friend is reserving one of the Czech Air Force Limited Edition kits for me...

Oh. Thought you might have been talking about something that could take on the 27's, 30's and 35's like the Gripen-E

You can't possibly be serious.

You're right. What was I thinking. I meant the Folland Gnat.

I am sure the legendary Sabre slayer can handle flankers . :D

Na! My money is on this:

 

XF91-21republic

 

If only Eduard would tool one of these. I think it would be a great candidate for the BFC 'what ifs'.

Is that an optical illusion or does the wing spreads out like a dog's ear ? 😮

It looks like someone swapped the left and right wing and also flipped them while assembling the kit.

It's not an illusion. The wing was designed with reverse taper to prevent the wing tips from stalling first and causing the aircraft to pitch up into a potentially unrecoverable attitude. This was a problem with many early swept wing jets. I believe it was later found that suitably placed wing fences prevented the spanwise airflow that triggered the tip stall and the configuration was not widely adopted.

It's an awesome plane. It's like the USAF accidentally gave a contract to the Flash Gordon team. 

Thunderceptor. Designed by Loki and forged by Thor's hammer.

 

If Kitty Hawk carry out their threat to make 1/32 Thunderstreaks and Thunderflashes I hope they also do the Thunderceptor, the variant with the big turboprop and the parasite version that was tested on a B-36.

I love the XF-91 Thunderceptor. Been up close and personal with it in Dayton Oh. many times.
