One for Bill: 1/48 Convair B-36 to be released:
Does their insanity know no bounds?!

How about a Brabazon? Or the An-225?

Boeing 314 Clipper would be nice to see in 1:48th scale,

That would be nice - would go nicely alongside the pair of 1/48 Sunderlands I have...

Another subject that I have yet to see in 1:48th scale is the Curtiss C-46 Commando.  Maybe HPH will consider doing that as a future release?

Reeve Aleutian Airways livery would be a nice option for the decals :)

Others in the works from HpH:  (all are 1/32 kits): Grumman F7F Tigercat, Douglas A20 Havoc, DC-3 Dakota, Savoia-Marchetti SM.79, Messerschmitt Me323 Gigant, Handley Page H.P. O/400 and Zlin/LET Z-37 Čmelák.  There is also talk of a 1/32 SR-71 or B-58.

BTW, here are pics of the F7F and Me321 in work:

All are massive kits. Where do you display them? That's crazy talk making kits that big.  ;D

How about that?   One of those never thought ya'd see it things.  And love that box art !
Super extra good news for Greg's 1/48 stash.
Requires deep analysis and contemplation to build as 1/72  :icon_alabanza:

Pretty much have to have one just to marvel at it.  Need to do a price check first.

Built as 1/72:    243ft fuselage    345ft wing    70ft 1.5in height
Then to find however many 1/72 engines to fly it.
Runway, taxiway, parking apron, and hanger size would be civil engineering challenges !
How many hours would it take to fill the tanks ?

They had that at Telford and surprisingly it wasn't as big as I thought it would be.

Having seen a 1/48 B-52, I have to agree. The B-52 is slightly smaller than a B-36, these two are 1/72 scale and on same size base boards
