Interesting Jan! I for one would welcome 1/200 airliner kits!

I have always built Hasegawa 1/200 airliners, and Hasegawa appears to be losing interest (or money?) in this subject.

Jazzie - you have hit in all mentioned... 🙂 

Petr asked me to create that tartan tails...., I am not so much happy as decal designer.

What I know, that line is planned to be a good supplement to Herpa die casts in the same scale. It is a try.

And - to 1/144 scale of the same subjects - did you notice that SAABs are 3D designed...? 🙂 But I did not tell no word about.

Good luck on the Tartan Tail, something i am reliably informed is hand masked then painted! I hope vinyl is involved somewhere along the line!

Jazzie - I have had some detailed looks at tartan tail and I am sure it was done the way you wrote....

 

Gentlemen, we have got the first series production Triplanes, look very nice. We will start to distribute this Friday, stay tuned... I will post some test build pictures when we have built

that little gem.

On approach by KP and AZmodel. Quoted "New Tool" ???

Though the question: what is covered by the concept of "New Tool Model" in these future kits ?

Hmmm does that mean 1/72 is a possibility as well?

wamwig - 1/72 absolutely not. Sorry. Technologically above our possibilities of today...

Dear Jan...which are the tool changes on the two new boxes of the Bf-109 G14/AS labeled as new toolings???

 

Do you have on the pipeline any additional box for the G10 Erla???

Completely new fuselage sprue by the look of it: Hannants. Looking at the colour guide it appears to be the same process as with the original kit - the fuselage is actually for the G-10 (WNF maybe?) and you have to fill the requisite fuel filler points and use decals to simulate the G-14/AS locations.

In general, new G-10 (WNW) have new fuselage, as the old one had some problems with cockpit fit. We also have done some

shape refinements.

The rest can be found in the answer of MikeR just above.

Talking About 109s you guys should do  Hispano HA-1112 M1L Buchon

 

Special Hobby do on in 1/72. 
 

https://www.scalemates.com/kits/special-hobby-sh72311-ha-1112-m-1l-buchon--1127664

 

I believe Academy/Hobbycraft did them in 1/48. Id like to build one or two of these also, so understand your desire to have one.

Buchon is planned for 2021, if everything goes well..

Nice :) the 1112 or the older 1109 Hispano ones?

There's a marked difference in front fuselage shape, not as simple as slapping a Merlin nose on a 109G backend...

Jamie from Sovereign is working on converting the old Hobbycraft one.

Andrew S. - unfortunately not this year thanks to insufficient capacity at the lould makers. A lot of another projects and - thanks to COVID and the fact that all actions are cancelled in Czech republic, KP/AZ decided to do kits with export potential.

Big chance for Aero 304 is 2021.
