DML (Dragon Models Limited) and CyberHobby
« on: December 15, 2011, 09:46:41 AM »
Michael Benolkin has posted a review of the DML 1:200 scale Northrop YB-49 kit that provides images and a description of the kit contents.  It certainly has potential for speculative and fictional modeling subjects.

Brian, this should appeal to you in that it is certainly much smaller than the AMT/Ertl/Italeri B-35/B-49 kits and might work to your favor for any possible projects you have in mind for the flying wing. 

I wonder if DML will offer the B-35 in the same scale?

I had heard that DML is planning the XB-35 as well as the V-bombers in 1/200 scale. They already have an assembled display model of the Vulcan in 1/200 as well as the YB-49.

I have this kit; the most annoying part is the odd (for aircraft) scale. 1/144 or 1/350 would have been better. Even in 1/200 it's a sizable kit (at least in wingspan). Looking at the instructions, the main landing gear has an odd attachment method. It'll make a great whif, though. And at 1/200, it's almost exactly the same wingspan as the N-9M, the 1/3 scale version of the B-35.

Looks like Dragon is getting into real-space 72nd in a big way with a Mercury/Redstone combo and this little beauty

I picked that kit up along with a Vulcan with the thought of Scale-o-Rama-ing them into something 1/72.   But, after looking at the kits themselves better,  I'm second guessing myself.   :)

If this is the place for Cyberhobby as well, one of the gaffes they did on the new Sea Venom is perfect for whiff-land with that overextended wing.  PR or HF Sea Venom's anyone?    :-*

Yeah, that relatively odd scale of 1/200 kinda earmark them for scale-o-ramas. I got meself a Vulcan to kitbash it with a 1/72 Hawker Hunter fuselage into a 1/72 bird. Maybe as a Vulcan proof-of-concept design. After looking things over, I'm now thinking of kitbashing it with a Revell 1/144 Tornado (or two) to make a two- or even three-seater attack aircraft.

The only problem is if I built one, I'd probably reverse the wings so they're swept-back.

Same here! I was big on FSW until I started modeling them in X-Plane. They were not much fun to fly. An X-29 with normal wings would look cool!

An X-29 with normal wings?  :icon_surprised: Never thought of that! Hmmm.... F-16 or Rafale wings? While keeping the canards?
