Quote from: The Rat on January 09, 2017, 07:38:16 AMTo raise an old complaint that a lot of us have, what's the manufacturer's fascination with German projects that never got off a restaurant napkin, when there are so many real prototypes and one-offs?Maybe the German stuff was just a little bit more weirder and crazier? A lot of the stuff the Germans designed, prototyped, and built was definately ahead of it's time. It would be nice to have decent injection molded kits of all the Martin Baker fighters for a start. Airfix should do a new tool SR.53, and other post-war projects. It would be easier to find real data on such things, and the whiff possibilities are enormous.Sorry to hear you're not getting the aircraft you want. Have you tried writing to various manufacturers and asking them for stuff you'd like to see?

Quote from: Weaver on January 09, 2017, 08:22:05 PMThe German stuff is sexy because the What If narrative is a scare story: "What if the Nazis actually managed to get all this cool stuff into service? Man, we came this close to losing the war!"
Quote from: Rheged on February 03, 2017, 07:40:22 AMWhat about a decent Vickers Windsor, or a Victory Bomber, or Barnes Wallis' Wild Goose?
Quote from: PR19_Kit on February 03, 2017, 10:57:46 AMI have the diabolical Contrail Windsor vacform, and while it's a rubbish mould, it's not as big as I thought. For some reason I've always thought of the Windsor as the next size up on a Lancaster, but it's only a little longer and a bit more span, and the max AUW is less than a Lanc.
