If you a scale Nazi, don't post here. Some people like what it is BECAUSE of what it is

Scale "Nazi"...? Scale police, maybe...

Anyhow, Scott did say a while back they were working up some unique new things.

With the crop of flight stabilizing gizmos that are coming available, could be I guess.

And, I do think the 229 is quite a beauty on it's own.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Tempted to skip the Sea Vixen and Mk24 Spitfire and wait for this baby. Meanwhile having too much fun with my Vampire!

Now bring me a XB-35 and I will be ecstatic!

Spitfire 24? Haven't heard about that. What size...1100mm or 650mm?

Seriously....I would get that one too. And the Typhoon. And the Mk.24. Right after I get the M.E.163. And the Jug. *cough*
The Horton was a revolutionary design, and from the looks of it, seems to be (roughly) scale to the other offerings that Durafly puts out. It will be interesting to see the flight reports on it, especially after reading about all the fun peeps have had with the little 163...lol.

However...I still think that Durafly should do a NICE D.O. 335. Judging by their efforts on the scale of their other 1100 size aircraft, I would bet the 335 would be an absolute knockout.

Ditto on that. I have the Lanyu 335, fitted with retracts and flaps. Great little plane but can't handle grass. Something large enough to manage rough fields would be the ticket for me, preferably 1200-1400mm

Great ideas on the D0 335 in a @1200+ span! I've held off buying the more common WW2 birds, but a large scale 335 would be a "must buy" I love the way your Do 335 turned out Jeff. Mine's still sitting unfinished in the closet

The German flying wings are very cool, and I hope there are many more "oddball" WW2 aircraft coming out.

Very nice. Looking at it closer it does appear to be EPO foam. And I do recognize the oleo struts from the HK website. Good show Scott!

Center section of the fuse looks like it came from the 1984 dune movie. Guild highliner and what not. I like where they are headed but this needs a lot of work to fix the looks
