1/72 scale hanger

  • 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?.

  • 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!

    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.
  • Question [?]not sure if you are still looking, but flightpath (etched). have released sets in both 1/48th and 1/72nd of airfield diorama sets including blast pens, nissan huts,air raid shelters etc.lots of other bits and pieces as well.
  • 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.

  • Thanks for all the info guys, there's enough to keep me going for a while. Cool [8D]

    Best regards
