I've been following the KH Huey over on ARC, the makers have some decent UH-1 experts working as consultants - the kind who have been scratching/bashing existing kits for years to get every aerial, vent and panel line right.

I thought I've read somewhere no F-15 has ever been shot down in combat
There's a first time for everything! You're right though: the Wiki for type losses says "Of all aircraft lost, none have been lost in air-to-air combat."

According to them what knows the 1/35th is still in the pipeline.

Really hoping to see Kitty Hawk produce an F-86H in 1:48th scale. 

F6U Pirate was never one of my favourites.

I could see the F6U fitted with a pusher prop ala the Alekseyev 218-III.

David Funke has shared images and product review at modellversium.de for the new 1:48th scale Kitty Hawk UH-1D "Huey" model kit.  Plenty of pictures showing the kit contents and how many parts are in this kit.  :)

Personally, I would be interested in doing a carrier based trainer version  (akin to the T-45) or perhaps a single seat modification...or maybe a UCAV

All three of those sound good.  For the single-seat version, have the pilot where the backseat pilot is now and fit the new nose with a radome, suitable radar, and "black boxes".

Hmmm.....


Yak-130 single-seater concepts by Motschke, on Flickr

I think I like the original one best. While I'm not so sure about the Hawk 200, I think making the previous back-seater the driver works here.

And a Yak-130G (G for "gak" - "hook", as on the Su-25UTG) is a splendid idea.  :smiley:
