And what is wrong with 1/72? I can give you 32 or 48 reasons why the other scales are no better!!  ;D

Nothing wrong if you like that scale...unfortunately (for me), I prefer 1/48. :(

NP. When I was younger I did 1/48 but now I am spaced constrained so 1/72 is it.  :-[

And yet some folks say that when they were younger they did 1/72 but now they are older and the eyes/hands/patience are not what they once were they are going for the larger scales... ;D

The eyesight is certainly an issue. But SHWBO is not willing to give me the space for 1/48 so itty bitty pieces it is.

Nope, evidently the 1/72 version was successful enough for Igor to decide to do this on his own! I had no idea until I saw it at another forum.

Unfortunately he's made a rather egregious error and put the cargo door on both sides - the real deal has it on the port side only.

And yes, I will get one at some point!

Easy compromise: buy it, and send it to me. I'd love one of each 1/72 and 1/48!!

And if anyone's wondering no, sadly I'm yet to get my own 1/48 FU-24. I want one so, so bad  :'(

Never having seen a Unicraft kit in the flesh & trusting my fellow modellers that they were total crap, it's nice to see that these images completely endorse their opinion! :smiley:

Unicraft P.1127 (lower moulding in image, with my own interpretation above) ... ah well, it gave me the incentive to make my own, a quiet lunchtime and a block of tooling resin :)
