and the Me 163. We have seen the future and it is 1/32 scale.

About damn time someone did a Do 335 in 1/32. Now all we need is a 1/32 He 219 and I'm set.

There was once a time when I would have literally punched thru a wall with joy...

at the idea of an injection-molded 1/32 Do 335.
But now? Meh. It'll sell well, it'll no doubt be impressive as hell, but I won't be lining up at the local internet-mart to pick one up.
At least if Dragon's doing it, we've got a reasonable shot at seeing it done correctly, unlike a certain Chinese behemoth whose name rhymes with "chumpeter".
Oh come on Lynnn , I thought you liked their '109...
|February 2 2010, 3:19 PM |
...and some of their onther kits are not that bad? Did we forget about Dragons "attempt" at the P-51?
What, their 1/24 Gustavs?
|February 2 2010, 3:26 PM |
They're acceptable, but nothing more... they've got outline and detail errors out the wazoo, which is a common theme with the company. Dragon's mistake was trying to meet Trumpeter on their playing field with rivets, and they chose an incredibly poor airframe to do this on... note that the rest of their line has not been savaged NEARLY as bad, their 1/32 110s are apparently awesome by all accounts for instance.
Dragon made a mistake and learned from it. Trumpeter constantly makes mistakes, and does not. Ergo, I have faith that Dragon will do a good job.

I absolutely love this plane, but I've got the Tamiya 1/48 one pretty far along, so my enthusiasm for the Dragon announcement is a bit more muted than it would have been otherwise. I do hope that they do a 1/32 Ar-234B, however...
...erm, P-51D in 1/32 anyone?

Not too sure about the quality, I'm afraid that tanks and planes kits are developed in different offices..

the Bf 110 was changed to include a slat option. They're listening and clearly trying, and the prices are not through the roof.
There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

I see Steve, but after the horror I've seen on the Mustang, and above all considering what masterpieces others can create in the same scale (i.e. Tamiya Spit), I'm not gonna believe it until I see it..
