Miniart 1/35 Triebflugel!
Posted by Real G on Wednesday, May 08, 2019 1:58 PM

Oh man:

http://www.moxingfans.com/new/news/2019/0508/5793.html

So where the heck is a new-tool 1/72 version?  Amusing Hobby is doing one in 1/48, so where's the small scale equivalent?  I built the dinosaur-era Huma kit, but it's old and tired and could use a replacement.

In 1/35, the Triebflugel's wings will take up a lot of shelf real estate.  Oh well, it will look nice next to my Meng V2 misisle.

35th seems and odd scale, why not 32. That said, i might well be adding one. But a new 72nd would be nice.

Unusual for Luft '46, but there's not much size difference between 1/35 and 1/32. Never done a miniart kit but this could find its way onto my bench. Could be a fun project.

Bish,

I agree 1/72 would be the preferred scale.  That way I can form my own Triebflugel Staffel!  Stick out tongue  And of course there are other whiffer possibilities, like Japanese home defense squadron, belligerent Italian forces, captured Soviet, US, and British machines, and of course post-war French.

But I'll definitely buy a Miniart kit, odd scale notwithstanding.  I confess to have had 2 1/48 Amusing Hobby kits on pre-order because I felt I could not get enough Triebflugel.  But I cancelled one in anticipation of the Miniart kit.

SnapdragonXXX,

I wonder who will be the first to mod a V2 Meillerwagen to take a Triebflugel fuselage?  The lighter transport trailer could be adapted to carry the detached wings.  A diorama perhaps?  Titled "Somewhere in the Black Forest".

Just saying.  Angel

An interesting thought RealG. 

Maybe a modified Tamiya Famo and tank trailer, a couple of trucks and a launch platform in bits on another trailer, maybe the new one from Das Werk, with a load of soldiers looking at the aircraft on the trailer.

The Title?

Somewhere in the black forest German solders realise that someone high up has come unglued!

 

I would like more luft '46 kits in 1/32 or 1/35. The difference between the two scales is not really noticable and they would be fun builds and certainly draw eyes in cabinets and give us the opportunity for some interesting camo schemes.

The Shinden I'm building at the moment is going to get a "Rising Sun '46" luftwaffe type splinter pattern using Japanese colours. Something different to the prototype upper Green, Lower light grey. Time we had some fun in larger scales!
