That's a pleasant surprise. I wonder whether they'll consider doing it in 1/48 scale later.

I wonder where this fits in Clear Prop's future release plans - at the very least, they have already announced a Su-25 and a LaGG-3 series 66, and I believe I heard rumours about other variants of La-5 to follow the existing ones.

Ooh, that looks tasty. Especially with the folding wings.

 

Cheers,

Bill

 

PS. How about a 1:72 XF8U-3 next?    :)

Let's hope a S-2, especially an S-2F will come later.

 

The tracer will be in my to get list!

A whole new fuselage and modified nacelles, but we can hope. I’ll be happy if the Tracer appears any time soon.

Another announcement of theirs? I'm starting to feel somewhat worried about some of their earlier announced but still unreleased kits.

Same here! Clear Prop is not a very big outfit, AFAIK. They need to focus - especially on the previously-announced releases that I want... :whistle:

It would be a shame if they do not do this in 1/48. Looking at the images of their Skyshark kits it would be a slam dunk best seller. Especially since I sold my Collect Aire kit for $400.00 a while back. You know it would sell well if people are willing to spend that much on a resin kit.

To go from Tracer to Trader you need the S-2 wings.

 

From Trader to S-2 new fuselage and nacelles 

 

Let's hope!

The Trader had a shorter fuselage like an S2F-3 to S2F-1/2 relative to the Tracer.

I'd certainly like them to :yes:

This would be far more lucrative in 1/48 than 1/72. 

I'm quite confident they'll make good money on it in both scales. It's one of those odd looking airplanes that somehow has quite an appeal.

Not necessarily! Assuming you sold it in some kind of auction format, all you need are two people willing to spend at least $399 on that kit because $400 was too much for one of them.

Well, in 1/72 we can expect, quite reasonably, also the S-2 Tracker and C-1 Trader kits.

Let's hope!  

 

A good S-2 would be extra welcome

No auction. I sold it outright to a person that posted they were looking for one. I told the eventual buyer that because of the rarity of the kit I was going to charge a premium on it. I told him $400 + shipping and he was good with that. He said the price was fair for what the kit was and it's availability. So no, there was no biding war for it. I later sold a Collect Aire T2V Seastar for the same price, again to someone that was wanting to acquire one. Same explanation for the price.
