Parkzone's Next Z-Foam Warbird.... and thoughts,feelings, etc.

I totally love my T-28 and some of us are not really fans of the Corsair, pls consider other 4-channel warbirds in the future made of Z-foam. I would like a FW-190 but do not like brush gear motor or plain foam 3-channel planes... Scott

I would die for a scale looking fw 190. I was so sad when they discontinued the airframe only version of the one they have. I swear I would dump the plane Im about to get (t-28) and get its airframe on the spot!

I bet the next one is a Zero... They did the mustang, spit, and fw... which are the three major ones from that theater... so it would make sense to do a corsair and a zero..

Yes a Zero would make sense, but they should also do a 109 to complete the European Theater.

P-39!!!!

I flew my Corsair today and its pretty neat. I love trying to do scale flybys but I really miss the completely trouble free touch and gos and taxiing with the T-28. A P-39 would be perfect and there are so many color scheme to choose from.

And talk about something nobody else has done..... The mod guys could clip the wings and paint them like Reno racers and over power them.

Come on.... P-39!!!!

What about a CAC -12 Boomerang or a Wirraway or a Vaultee Vengence or a Beech 12 or a Beaufighter or anything but another zero

Last thing I want to see is a zero. Yuck. Flying tin can. A p-39 or bf-109 would be swell though.

I'm with CyberJay, a Zero's next in line. Just look at the fuze's of the Trojan and Corsair, round, offering the most support all the way around for the plane, with no major stress areas to reinforce. But it would be nice if they went back down the line a little and redid the FW-190. A great flying plane in that cheat foam, hollow wing and subpar electronics.

By that reasoning then how about a Lavochkin LA-5, 5FN, or 7.

Talk about under recognized fighters. The LAs were bad arse. There was an incident were 2 P-51's were dispached in less than a minute when they mistook an LA-7 for a Focke-Wulf.

Lexta, being an Aussie I'd love to see a Boomerang and / or a Wirraway, but it isn't likely to happen due to market demand me thinks.

There is a Boomerang electric kit offered here in Aus, but it's a built up model, and I know little about it. I guess a Wirraway could be 'fudged-up' by converting an AT-6, Hmmm! thats something that may be worth looking at. I mean one fella in WWII did shoot down a Zero in a Wirraway, and it was a nice looking aircraft, although there are very few WWII aircraft that don't look good to me.

It won't be a 'specialty' aircraft. It will be something very popular. I'd look for a possible remake of the P-51 or Spit. Possibly an FW or varient.

But really, I'd be looking at the P40. Very popular but hasn't been done by a Horizon company. P-38 is out (E Flite).

I suspect what ever it is. They've already started working on it. A Zero would be my guess though.
