  • Was just browsing hannants and came accross this.

    http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/WSP-61

    Not yet released, but its for a 32nd scale P-61 by Wing XL.

    Wing XL apears to be part of Wingscale. Arent these the guys that were making the 32nd B-25's?

    Could be interesting if you have room.

  • would be an awesome kit in 1/32, a tad big but still awesome. i am building the ancient revell/monogram P-61 in 1/48 and the detail is a tad sparse. and you could cram alot of detail in a widow that big. not sure if it's the same company, but if it is this should  be an amazing kit.

  • Just built the Revell 1/48 P-61, a poorly made kit, but I managed to fix it up decently.  A nicely made 1/32 P-61 would be awesome, but pretty large to display.  Probably have to hang it from the ceiling.

  • B-26 would be great to build in 1/32, again it would be big, but the "Widow Maker" is one of my favorite planes of all time. it has that mean, nasty look to it that only a few planes have.

  • They showed up on a previous posting, but gave no specific details other than the planes will not be released in any specific order.

  • Don't expect these kits to appear this year or even early next year. I believe Martin has to establish a relationship with a tool and pattern maker and then secure a source to produce the kits even before he can bring them to market.

    He was well on his way with the B-25s and the Meteor when the tool company and he parted ways. Those initial B-25s are going to be released by a yet unknown company...I have my guess written down on a piece of paper...and even the tool company has it on their website offering to produce it for anyone with the capital to do so after the contract with this again yet to be announce company has their run with them.

    What many don't understand is many of the molds a company releases isn't their molds. Unless they have paid for them. A good example is Two Bobs released their T-2 Buckeye...the kit was produced by MPM and is now being rereleased by MPM. Others are doing the same, producing a kit under their own brand, then the kit is released later by the company that actually did the tooling and production.

    Again, don't expect the P-61 or other kits on the list anytime real soon. It takes time to pull everything together and deliver. Personally I would have recommended he do like Tamiya...say nothing until its ready to ship.
