1/48th Scale HPH B-36!!!

Recommended Posts

Yes, sports fans, you read that right, HPH are supposedly coming out with a 1/48th scale B-36. Let that sink in for a moment. A. 1/48th scale. B. 36. A 1/48TH SCALE B-36! Here's the link to show that I haven't been drinking what I soak my airbrush in - http://www.hphmodels.cz/hph/?lang=en

And, I thought the Monogram 1/72nd B-36 was big! Can we finally get a 1/72nd C-5 Galaxy? How about the An-124(126/226)(not sure if this is the correct designation for the big Russian one)? Yes, in The One true Scale(the Russian a/c).

The An-124 is available from Modelsvit in God's True Scale (1/72nd scale to you heathens). I would not be surprised if they come out with the An-225 Mriya also. Paul, thank you for the photograph of that beast - now that is what I call a model! I can get buried in the box it comes in. Now all I have to do is sell my car so I can buy this kit.

Anyone who buys it without the permission of his Significant Other might well end up doing just that... :D

i think I can confidently say that wouldn't fit in my spray booth. Which is just as well, since I hate to think how many jars of alclad it would need and how much that would cost!

I think you'd need an industrial airgun for that one.

That's amazing. I used to have a 1/72 one and that was huge!

 

I wish someone would bring out a 1/48th Vulcan, Victor and Shackleton.

Having built the Monogram monster some years ago which had its own size issues, I have to say again, why?

That is actually one of my insane dreams, to one day have a 1/32nd scale B-36. With the (re)-appearance of this monster, maybe it's not so insane.

Can I be the first to whinge that it's not in 1/32 scale? Or 1/18.


Ed, why not have words with Jason?

I'm sure that men of your caliber could split a 1:1 scale down the middle,

one wing each, and your respective neighbourhoods have their own awning! :whistle:

Saw one at last year's Telford show.  Sight to behold indeed.

It certainly was ! Now if only they'd do a Phantom FGR2, or an F-100D, or an F-101C, or . . .   :smile:
