So we do listen and read.
So, a P-39 AirAcobra in the 980mm range
Can't really see them getting the retracts very scale on this one. Just too small. IMO

Interesting. A Soviet P-39 would be cool; I believe they used them more than anyone

Sun of a female dog this is an expensive year. Thank you diamond hobby now I have to buy a nother plane along with one of your gyros( wink wink) it's about time now not to be greedy with my wish list how about a yak -9 or mig 3 next along with a fw190 maybe ta152 version then you would get more of my cash when those come out. My p-39 will get a soviet paint sceem when I get it.

Great....., but,.....gonna' be pretty crowded in a 980mm size airframe. Hope there's a smell in the air of a larger one to come along later....... Sad, in a way though, as these announcements come so far ahead of a true release date.

Taz, you could have put the size in your thread title for the better....

Wow.... wish they released this a year ago, as I like the way my alfa flies but I assume the FMS will have thicker foam, which would be great with my bad luck and lack of skill

My next warbird will probably be the FMS Tempest... PLEASE FMS, DON'T DISCONTINUE THE TEMPEST!!!


And why wouldn't a 1000mm class plane have retracts? That's a silly theory.

Hope it's not from my first opening post. As I never said it won't have retracts!!

And no one else has said they won't have retracts.

I said they would have trouble getting them scale!!
Can you please tell me how they are going to get a steerable nose retract right where the motor has to go?? I just can't see it happening to scale!
