You can't argue with thousands sold.

I have as much interest in the P-39 as all the other factories that thus far have not made one, surely that tells you something? Every plane has it's fans, the P-39 just doesn't have that many of them possibly as much as anything because it was a lousy Warplane, it also lacks certain other qualities that for commercial reasons, I am not going into, as I have said before, it may get made by us....eventually.....but priority it certainly isn't.........oh, and to whomever said I have an aversion to Japanese planes....yup, that's why I own a 90" Zero?!
Well I stand corrected. Was a total hipshot based off of nothing more than my opinion (which I stated) and the fact that the Vampire is $25 less than all the others; a significant discount. Certainly meant no offense.

As for the P-39 there of course are issues for any manufacturer with the nose gear and motor all up front but I'll have to agree to disagree on its popularity vs said EDF's. Yes it was not the most successful allied plane but the poll here shows that at least in this community it is popular. (Of course I realize that manufacturers and retailers have to sell beyond this small group of enthusiasts)

Anyhoo, again, I meant no offense as I understand that you cannot please everyone and the one Durafly example I have is a fantastic combination of quality at an affordable price. Keep pumping em out!

Alan

Vulcan I totally agree, and with everyone sold HK could donate some coin to the real one gracing the skies at the moment..

Come on Scott and co here's some inspiration...

Can I throw down a request for a Grumman avenger. Folding wings, bomb bay doors would be sensational.

The 1100mm wingspan is spot on. Maybe its time to increase the complexity of the product in order to create further additional product value and have he ability to move between a 6 channel setup and beyond.

Scott Thank you and the HK team for making this hobby so easy. What we have today was unthinkable when I started in the hobby. A big warbird with all the bells and whistles is an off the shelf reality! Affordable, flies well awesome. Well done.
And the fact that we as modellers can just ask for a model to be produced is.. well just unbelievable really.

So requests,
Supermarine Swift, Short Sunderland,a solid 70mm Hawk with retracts in EPO, and a Yak 3

Merry Christmas and thank you

OK, I bought the Stuka even though I said I wouldn't and I like it a lot. Still want a Val. I really like these fixed gear types--less headaches. How about a PZ11 or PZ24.

I would really like to see a PZL P-11. No retract hassle and very unique.

Agreed, but unfortunately no real market appeal. We do have some very interesting and lesser seen models coming this year, starting of course with the Mk24 Spitfire, ready for release very very soon.
