I was told by the owner of the nearest LMS I frequent, to expect a 1/72 injection C-17 from Kinetic.  This was after I was explaining to him my vacuform/resin (half Combat Models/half Anigrand) one I was about to start in the near future.

That would be interesting.

At least that means they haven't abandoned 1/72 just yet. Although I personally can't see why they chose a C -17. I'd rather have seen them scale down their Mirage 2000s or their IAI Kfir.  :uuu:

Kinetic seem to do large kits, and a 1/72 C-17 would be quite large I think ----  ;D

Below are all 1/72 scale

Some years back Panda was supposed to do a 1/72 C-17, and it even had a kit number listed.  Nothing ever came of it.  I can't see it myself.  For modelling purposes the kit is something of a bore.  They are all the same gray, with relevant national insignia,  usually toned down.

Well, there was the proposed BBJ-style derivative; not only could you arrive in your own private business jet, you could bring your transportation with you.

Alternatively, it would look great in FedEx markings.

Some very nice decals you linked there Robert.  The price is a bit daunting though.

Yeah! I know, but the Draw Decal stuff is top-notch plus you've got a big canvas to work on   -----

Thanks for doing the links better Jeff  :)

Sweet, almost enough to make me give 1/48 a try.

Almost bought an Italeri Mirage F-1 in 1/48 the other day but thought better of it.

The only 1/48 kit I ever built was a, from memory, Revell P-40 Warhawk for my younger brother it was fun and looked good but didn't last long before our adopted mentally disturbed brother tried to make it fly....... ::)

Maybe that sad memory is the source of my hesitation ref 1/48.  I do have a FJ-4A Fury and a Seahawk in the stash but haven't started either.  Maybe I could just reserve the scale for my alternate RAN FAA Whiffs.

Israeli 109 - cool!  :) I want to build a diorama of that pic (can't find it at the moment, of course) of the guy who strung up a hammock between the muzzle brake and the turret and caught some Zs. Bad drill, I know (and after some Zs he probably caught some flak  ;D), but it was a funny pic.

We-ell, if the Kinetic kit's not too expensive when (if) it comes out, I may have to buy one & compare the two. ;)
