Excited!!!  1/48 Ka-27 :)

Happy also to see the 1/35 CV90-35 announced.

Also interested in the 1/35 Hungarian 44M Tas

As for the rest…well, I seem to have most of the interesting ones already either from other manufacturers or in conversion sets. ???

^ When they do the Super Tucano in 1/72, I'll buy half a dozen easily.  >:D Warts (inaccurate belly area) and all.

One thing I don't get is the bit that people needn't worry about the little mould line running across the canopies. Even if the Super Tucano didn't have a antenna or det cord there, you'd still get the mould line. The Super Tucano has a blown canopy and the toolmakers need to make a two part mould to allow for the undercuts. So, you either have an easy to remove mould line or an inaccurate canopy. Simples.

And the blown canopy is really obvious on this aircraft. A canopy from a single part mould would look just silly.
Cheers,
Moritz

I saw several of these kits on the shelf today and was tempted to take a couple home with me but decided to wait until Emil has his next sale or a better price is offered by another source.

Hobby Boss 1:48th scale EMB-314 Super Tucano (kit number 81727) in box review at CyberModeler. 




I may have to pick one of these up and put it in MARPAT for a nice little COIN/CAS platform for my beloved Corps.

COIN Schmoin, full blown luxe-interior super-car stylie version, leather seats, wood inlay or carbon
fibre trim.
The latter depending on whether one is tasteful old money or nouveau poseur.  ;D

An almost was:




As for other deas, the EMB-314 is actually a contender for the RAAF PC-9 replacement so you could do a pure trainer version.

another idea might be some sort of race plane...

Just had a thought flash! What would the Super Tucano look like on floats? Double or single?

See if you could sell one to Justin Beiber. I hear he likes things that are expensive and go fast.
