What Parkzone warbirds do you want for 2014? (The real one)

Hey guys, I know there are probably a million of these polls by now, but I just wanted to know what PZ warbirds you're hoping for in the new year.

I think a yak-3 (or-1B) would be kind of neat.

But more honestly, maybe a decent (flaps and retracts ready) P-51 would sell better.

Wildest dream ? Maybe a D-520 ? A Bf-110 ? No wait.. M-205 !

Or how about a P38 Lightning?????

My money is on an updated P51. Both the current P51 and Trojan are well overdue for a refresh but the problem for Parkzone is they both still fly and sell so well.....

Just like there are so many that say, oh no...not another P-51, I started to have the same opinion about the ever popular P-40E and later modles as there's just too many of them out there ...but If they came out with an early version of the P-40.....like a P-40B or P-40C which looks about identical it would be an easy chioce for me.....a P-38 would be a close second.
The good thing about this hobby is that if HH doesn't have the airframes I desire probably someone else will....

There are a lot of good choices they could make, and I'd be at the counter waiting with cash in hand. Hellcat, Dauntless, B-25, SPAD VII or XIII, P-40....

The B-25 is my number 1, but I would also love to see {Flame suit on} an updated P-51, especially a B.

P-37?

You should stick to Single engine or Twin engine. If you're gonna mix them we will need more choices.

Like the P-61!

I was hoping for a F6F Hellcat to replace the Wildcat. I'm a huge fan of pacific theater fighters. I also would like to see an updated P-51, with rudder control (Hopefully with optional landing gear, because I don't have a runway)

The rudder is stupid easy to install on the current P-51 though

Yeah - P51s are like aXXholes - everybody's got one! - but they're also a good bet because of "brand recognition" and more importantly, they fly well as models!

I can think of a number of cool planes that would be difficult by nature of their design like the Bearcat. I think they're bad ass, but smaller models exhibit difficult ground handling and demand the expected dark color scheme (black/blue) that will forever be a challenge with EPO construction... F7 fans be forewarned here too...

A "large enough" B25 with 480 sized motors would top my list...

I doubt you'll see a twin from Parkzone with 480's installed.

My guess is we will see a P-40 with the options of flaps, retracts,and fuel tank drop.

We will probably see yet another P-51 with the same options.

In the ultra micro, we'll hopefully see an FW-190 with a brushless motor.
