I know a member on here broadcasted their response with FMS flat out saying they were making a new FMS F4U for the 1400 mm scale with all the bells and whistles(aka flaps). BTW, where is the SBD heading to in the pics? Please dont tell me you bought the real thing!!!

It was sitting at the Planes of Fame in Chino, CA. It looks like a recent acquisition.

On the subject of glaring errors. . . Look closely at FMS's large P-47. The canopy has an extra band and the pilot is too far rearward. I think is is totally inexcusable! I hope someone will make an after market fix for it.

This isn't much of a FMS thread. Its more speculation, which is probably more prone to derailment. Now if the Dauntless hijacked a thread based on a current model of FMS, then yeah, bet they would love it.

P-47 RAZORBACK!!!

At least the Freewing thread has something good tangible to talk about.

KI-43 Tony (not in poster)
Hawker Typhoon (not in poster)
Spitfire (previously issued)
P-40 (previously issued)
Tempest (not in poster)
P-51B (I believe that's a B in the poster)
FW-190D9 (that's not a Dora 9, right?)
P-51A (not in the poster)
JU-88

Feel free to check my answers against the poster... I'm ok at identifying most WWII planes but I wasn't totally sure on a couple (P-51A vs. B, which version of the FW-190, etc.) and I'm not 100% sure that it was said that the plane wouldn't be a new version of a previously done plane...

If I'm right, we're getting a P-51B, JU-88...or we have been led astray.

EDIT- now I see the JU-88 :O
Seems the only thing left on the plate new is the JU 88, Mustang (even B) is hardly new. Though I can't see the JU 88 selling to the masses, just a few diehards on here would be about it IMO

That said Brent, the poster is kind of misleading...
As far as I can see, the bird is not exactly on there...

I agree I doubt the JU-88 is it because it isnt very well known, not saying they shouldnt...bring on another P-51...
