1/72 scale hanger
Posted by shannonman on Thursday, June 09, 2005 2:00 PM
Hi all,
Is there such a thing as a 1/72 scale aircraft hanger kit ? . I need one for an airfield diorama.
Also are there any 1/72 kits of modern gliders?.

Big Smile [:D]

This guy built a hangar out of card in 1/144. I don't see why you couldn't scale up the plans and add a little more detail. Good luck!

Airfix made some building kits that could be adapted, but I think they are OOP.

Actually, the latest Squadron flyer had some Airfix buildings that could work.

I've done a lot of looking on this subject. If you're interested in a WW2 small, single aircraft hangar try Airmodel:

http://www.airmodel.de/shope/shope.html

There a couple of HO kits which are more modern at (just do a site serach for "hangar"):

reynaulds.com

This is about all I've been able to find. If you're inclined to scratch build one there are lot of HO scale building materials which should make it a fairly simple process.

Shannonman,
There are kits in Model railroading of hangers Oscale trains are nominally 1/48th
and S scale is 1/64th. You could change out the pedestrian doors and be close for
1/72nd scale, If you found an Sscale you probably wouldn't even have to change
those doors, Try the Walthers model RR site or catalog.
Good Hunting.

Badcat Toys makes a 1/32nd / 1/35th scale 1930's hanger. It's huge and
VERY pricey. http://www.badcataviation.com/hac191exbadc.html

I don't know a lot about gliders but I got two 1/72 glider kits.
Both are polish, a Gil and a Mucha. They look like very old kits, so they probably aren't modern aircraft.
Most glider kits that I have seen are old eastern european kits.

Best regards
