Default Who's up for a 1/400 Bandit?

The recent discussions of smallest aircraft in 1/400 (consensus is Saab 340), along with some of the other un-done props got me thinking about what would be a holy grail for me - The Embraer EMB110 Bandeirante. I think that would be slightly smaller than the Saab...

Specifically I'd want one in Royale Airlines livery since I flew on them several times out of MSY.

Royale Airlines - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



But I'm pretty sure that not many folks remember Royale, so what other 'Bandits' would you want to see?

This would be a great model if someone would make it
Im not sure if these liveries would make the cut, but I sure as hell would like to see the following;
Air New Zealand Link



Ansett & Tranzair

Ah the good old Bandeirante, used to ply it's trade round these here parts in Loganair livery back in the 80's. Yep I'd be up for that, possibly too small for 1:400 though...

I'd like some Beech 1900s! Much more prolific than the Banderante and a tiny bit bigger. (just a tiny bit though!)

I just knew someone was going to pollute my Bandit thread with a Brasilia request

(Yeah I'd like a Continental Connection EMB-120 since I've flown on those as well).

The 110 not so - i would love to see the smaller variants of the ERJ-145 - the ERJ-140 and the ERJ-135 in 1:400.. GJ/JC would only need to design the fuselage as the wings, gear and the tail could be used from their existing ERJ-145.. Another cool version would be a ERJ-145XR with winglets..

If you check over on wings900 there is a company making Beechcraft 1900s and several bizjets using 3D printing.

3D Printing - Page 22 - Wings900 Discussion Forums

The moulds look pretty good but at present they are just creating the moulds with no printing.

It does look awesome and something I wouldn't mind getting. Of course, I feel we'll see the 110's larger sibling, the 120 come out first.

I'd like a EMB-110 as well, but most a Xingu would be most welcome

I would like to see a DHC-6 Twin Otter in 200/300 with the long nose, that would be wonderful!

EMB-110 would probably be too small at least too small for metal... was 14' or so shorter than the Saab

Yes, A EMB-110 would be very small in 400 but I'd buy it! A -120 would be nice as well!

If there was a way to model the EMB-110 accurately and with details in 1:400 or 1:200, I'd be all over it.

would want to see these first though:

PBA


PBA / Continental Express (hybrid)


PBA / Continental Express (full cs)


Dolphin Air


Gull Air

Throw in a free magnifying glass for each purchase and perhaps they would sell.

I mean Nick has a very valid point. It would be interesting in 1:200 scale. In 1:400, just too small to bring out any details. Unless you were to use it as scenery in a diorama, in which case it is ok for I to be somewhat crude.

This would be small in 1/72, much less in 1/400.

I'd be interested in a DHC-6 or Beech 1900 in 1/200, but not in 1/400. It would just be too small. I have a 1/400 Shorts 360 and it's tiny. The Saab is even just slightly smaller. The Saab 340 is 20m long compared to the EMB110 and DHC-6 which are only 15m long. The Beech 1900 is 18m long.
