The next FMS warbirds in the 1400-1500mm (55-60inches) class!


it has been quite a while since the last poll and in the meanwhile, some of the most popular designs of the last poll have been produced.

So it is time to see what people would like to have next. I tried to include any of the more popular designs that are still out there, as well as some unusual designs to see if they would stand a chance at all.

If your preferred design is not amongst those in the poll, please post so.
There will probably be a runoff poll where those additional suggestions get the chance to be included.

That said, there is no different version for a Spitfire in this poll. The Spitfire could use a redesign anyway. If that is ever going to happen, there will be a separate poll about the preferred Spitfire version...

Alright, choose your preferred model. One vote each...

edit: for pictures of the various planes, please kindly copy&paste the name of the aircraft into Google Image search.

edit 2: this poll is not to find the one next warbird. Every plane that reaches a certain score is a potential future design!!!

Didn't hear anything about it. Just realised I forgot the Skyraider
Anyway, if anyone wants the Skyraider, vote for the "None of the above" option and post here.

Thanks for setting up the poll, Bernhard. I don't think there is a plane on the list that I don't like, although WWII birds will probably always top my list.

Hey Pitt, no prompting!

I like about 75% of these birds for sure, and as much as I'd love to see a Sea Fury and a Dauntless, ultimately the plane that would be an instant must-get for me would be the ME-262. There isn't a single proper one being made right now, much less with the proper detail and quality I'd expect from FMS. I'd buy it tomorrow. I don't even think I've ever seen a scheme I don't like on that plane.

Voted ME 262. Also really like the Ki-61 Hien or "Tony" for a close second. Check out this sleek bird if your not familiar:

Never been done, sleek WWII fighter, mean looking, fast, aerobatic & agile.

Rather than just letting people vote for one plane, you should have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd choice option. You'd get a much better consensus on planes that multiple people are interested in that way. There are several other planes than the one I voted for that I would be happy with, and I'm sure others feel the same way and could get a plug in for them. There'd definitely be more overlap that way.
