Default I would like more military aircraft

I think a 1:400 f-16 or Raptor or Stealth would be awesome, along w Russian/Chinese Flankers, a B-52 would be nice, the Gemini B-1 was abhorrent

Definitely love my mil stuff and always up for anything new that's military in 1/400 scale but as far as fighters are concerned, do you not think it's going to be too small??

You can get B-2s, F-16s, F-117s, and F-15s with Dragon Wings KC-10 and KC-135, and even C-130 models. I think Dragon also did a stand alone B-2 release as well.

I have the F-117 but it has no landing gear, some of the larger jets I think are suitable for 1:400

It means they're a bot. For some reason, there are bots that seem hellbent to post on this forum. Always popping up under new usernames, as they continuously get banned by the mods as they're caught.

Yeah, I know it's a bot. I just don't understand the whole purpose. Is there money to be made by doing this kind of nonsense?

.... If you are adept at model-making there was two sets of Navy aircraft by Tamiya. I made them in the mid-1980s. Naturally, nothing more modern. They are 1/350 scale, but the difference is hardly noticeable. And they do have landing gear. I don't know how available they are, but if all else fails I have both unassembled sets that I could part with.

I for one am only interested in airliners in 1:400. I bought a Dragon C-5 because it was available and a home ROC visitor. But I for one am not interested in 1:400 military aircraft and would not buy them.

Gemini have just done the A400
But personally prefer 1/200

the small jets come in at a similar size to 1/400 airliners.

Rumor has it that Sky Classics will be releasing a version of this scheme very soon. Possibly available at Aviation Retail Direct or via a specific retailer here in the U.S. Checkout the ARD site to see a video review of a similar model recently released by Sky Classics.
