72nd scale Tamiya Bf-109 g6 ?

Recommended Posts

Hobbyeasy has a preorder option for a 72nd scale G-6 .  Did a cursory google search but couldn't find anything . That said , considering they downsized the Ki-61 , there is a good possibility they will downsize this as well.

So a 1/72 Spitfire Mk1 in around 12 months then???? 

 

That  will get the forum commentary juices flowing...

IftTamiya could do the same with their DO-335 and HE-162...

What was wrong with Dragon’s 335 and 162?

Scaling down their 1/48 G4M1 "Betty" would be nice too! However, if Tamiya were going to do that they would have done so by now.:hmmm:

 

Not sure about the 109 but I suspect it will sell very well - Tamiya+1/72 Bf 109=lots of sales!

Since the 1/48 Zero is there a single new tool 1/48 Tamiya WWII kit that hasn't been down-scaled to 1/72?  We got the Zero, IL-2, Hien, now the Bf-109 to that's four for four.  Odds are pretty good we'll get a spit in 1/72.

Good afternoon

 I would prefer to see Tamiya downscaling the 1/48 P51B they did it for the D so why not ? and we miss a good 1/72 P 51B ..

 

Cheers

Good afternoon and happy New Year

 

 I would prefer to see a brand new toolrd Tamiya 1/48 P51B/C  and then the same in 1/72, or vice-versa 😉 We really miss  good  1/32-1/48 and 1/72 P 51B/C..

I am sure that there is also huge need for a new Tiger tank or an F-16 in 1/72. ;)

Actually Tamiya have already released F-16...

There's a huge need for new Spitfires Mk.I/II and Va/b/c, Griffon Spitfires, new Mustangs B and Allison Mustangs, A6M2-N, A6M2-K, A6M5 a/b and c and P-36 though. Although I would love to see Meterors Mk.1 and 3 too (together with Tamiya's Schwalbe and Salamander).

 

But I will be happy if this new Gustav includes both rudders and canopies. And I hope, but (unfortunaterly) it rather unlikely, they will do Friedrich too (both -2 and -4).

I hope it is not the ITALERI kit since they rebox some of the Italeri kits.

Sorry I don't  want to sound like a negative Nelly but I was thinking of this .

I don't think your fears will be realised as in the earlier post by Sturmovik, it confirms it is a new tool and this makes sense as Tamiya have more recently scaled down their newer 1/48 kits.

 

Personally I am looking forward to it, as any new Tamiya 1/72 kit is welcome just to enjoy the fit, engineering and finesse of the tooling. I hope they continue to scale down in this way and my heart hopes for the F-14 to receive the same treatment, although my head says this is very unlikely.

twenty years from now on and they will probably release a BF-109F2, then maybe after one freaking hundred years later an F-16D and the downscale of theirs P&W F-16s

It was confirmed a couple of pages ago. I think It was concluded that Tamiya would downscale their 1:48 fighters to 1:72.

Ah, my apologies. I stumbled across it by accident and assumed it was quite new, didn't browse back far enough to see otherwise.

Then they need to get started on the P-51B.
