I'm kind of surprised Trumpeter haven't released one given they have done a bunch of other helicopters in 1/35.

Same here, especially as they've done little ones like Chinooks 'n' all. ::)

Might cost an arm & a leg but it'd be cheaper than both arms, both legs, kidneys, liver, spleen & corneas required to afford a resin version in 1/35. :icon_crap:

A 1/1 from Boeing would be cheaper than a resin 1/35 kit.

I wouldn't have classed a CH-47 as smaller than a CH-53.

Strangely, I have a 1/35 CH-47 in my stash --- and parts for a 1/32 one too. Plus a 1/48 CH-53

It's rare and it's resin but it does exist:

@Greg/GTX - Yeah, I knew aboot the Collectaire F-86H but you apparently did not purchase enough of the Collectaire kits to warrant the development and production of an injection moulded F-86H :)

The one kit Id love nowadays is a modern 1/72 Javelin. Its just such an awesome-looking plane.

That and a 1/35 ferret at an affordable price....
