Yeah, maybe I'm not totally discounting it, it wasn't in our original plan that's all, we have to take things one step at a time, the manufacturer you refered to in fainess, doesn't release a 50mm and 70mm version each time either!

Yep, fair call Scott. I just see a window of opportunity here. It never hurts to make the suggestion. With 50 or so new model ideas already swimming over there, there may be no time or room for this one(50mm Vampire) too, hence working with Jalin might be the way.

Most of the scale models have never been offered before, or are models never seen in a particular spec before, it is all very fresh and exciting (for me anyway). Basically, it would be a long way down the road.

Before anybody asks, no, I can't tell you what they are until they are in some sort of shape of or for production, our competitors would love that info!
You are really putting out some great looking models, The Tiger Moth, Lancaster, Vampire and Spad are among the best loking foamies around. Could I hope for a Gloster Gladiator in the future ...a sweet looking bipe.

Keep up the good work

I cant fly a 70 with retracts at my field but I'd bite anyone's hand off that offered a Vampire/ Venom in a 50mm...

We would have traded you that rain for our heat wave a few weeks ago...about a month or more of absolutely no rain and temps 100+ degrees. We've bee burning up. Finally the rain showed up and we are sub 100 so all is well. Hope you have a boat as you might need it.

I wold love to get one of these when they come out. When I was a kid the airport where my dad had his plane (Geauga County Airport in Middlefield Ohio) had both a P-51 Mustang and a Vampire. One fairly wealthy guy in the area actually owned about 20 planes at this one airport, from a Cassutt to a Gee Bee Sportster etc. Anyhow one day they decided to fly the P-51 and Vampire at the same time. They were chasing each other around the sky. Then they broke away form each other and the Vampire disappeared so we all watched the Mustang then behind us about 100 feet off the deck perpendicular to the runway came the Vampire and took us all by surprise! If he had machine guns we all would have been goners! It is a vivid memory for me as a kid, I was about 14-15 years old. It was great. I have a RC Mustang so now just need the RC Vampire!
