Hey guys,
If you could have any plane made into a molded foam design what would you ask the Plane Santa for?

By molded foam I mean similar the the Alpha models designs.

I'd say a good looking P-40 Warhawk or a sport plane like an extra or a cap would be where I would start.

What ya' got up your sleeve now??

I-16 mosca or a GeeBee model Z, Y, D, or R1/R2.

actually any golden age racer would be sweet.

Peashooter! That would be cool!

No, no make it a twin engine beechcraft! Or a cherokee!

Kits of civilian light planes are too scarce. Who needs another warbird? Especially something as common as a p-40, p-51, spit, F4U corsair, p-47 or any other WWII fighter. Bring out something less common.


or a PT-22!!

just my $0.02

I agree, but any common aerobat would be sweet.. maybe even a Pitts Python!

It would be nice to see larger warbirds than alpha or fsk that had retracts and all the other goodies a scale warbird should have =)

I like all the ideas so far.

One thing important though would be the price. NES StreetJets are cool but $79.99 for a 21 inch wingspane foamie? no way!

If you could hit the $20 mark and make a profit on it you'll be a wealthy man.
Look at the success at the Cox Micro Warbirds. They must be making money, there the right scale and right price everything about them is perfect.

$20 Geebee, Yak, F3A, Jet, Pitts, Rutan, Experimental any one would be a dream!!!
