Default How about some NASA birds?

A few months back I suggested we have a Euro1 month, and Hobby Master did kinda run with it and produced a couple releases during the Oct 2013 poster showing off the RF-3C, F-16, FB-111, and A-10 in the similar Euro1 color tone. So I'm going to suggest another one and see if it gauges any interest.

I think Hobby Master can do a NASA month, using the existing moulds they have now, I'm pretty sure it would a quite popular. Especially after Falcon Models might one day make the T-38 NASA livery, it could kick on a collection theme:

Here are some classic NASA liveries that HM can do:
Both Single and Dual Seater F-18



When FM comes out with their T-38, we need the F-104 to partner up with:


Although I prefer if they did the TF-104 since the mould is better (especially the nose probe)


The F-111 would also be an interesting choice:


And then there are the others like F-102, F-100, and F-106



What do you guys think? And I'll let William know the response to this suggestion.

I agree, an F-111 and T-38 would be nice.

I have harped on Falcon for not announcing a NASA T-38 model before now. Talk about as sell out model, poor judgement for that to not be in the mix yet.

Been asking for awhile for Hm to do a NASA F-18.

Dryden has two F-16 C/d models, this one used in 1991:



A bit plain of a livery and this one which is on display:



The XL would require a new mold, but still, if HM really wanted to do a NASA F-16...

Nice picture of Balls 8. I've been to Edwards AFB and seen this airplane up close..

As a 1/400 guy I'm hoping JC Wings does the NASA Super Guppy.

That F104 looks sharp! Speaking of NASA jets, who could forget these spectacular birds?

F15 Active(Perhaps a moded series with the new mould coming up)

Good Idea, I am currently looking for a 1/144 DC-8 model kit with new CFM56. Then I will apply NASA "vomit Comet" decals on them . I am so into NASA after watching Apollo 13 three times XD.

I would like the NASA F-15S/MTD active. Those thrust vectoring engines and foward canards make the f-15 look so much cooler. Please make one in 1/72!!

Sadly, Witty Wings beat HM to it with this scheme:


So yeah... the TF-104 would be the ideal candidate for Hobby Master to do this scheme on an F-104.

Sorry for the crappy pics, but here are most of what exists for 1/72 NASA diecast:

F-104s by Witty Wings, Aviation72 (using Witty mold), HM, and Hot Wheels. All different tail numbers



Also, 2 CW NASA Blackbirds, the Corgi NASA Harrier, and the Dragon's 2 X-37B OTVs.




It would be great to see HM fill out the NASA ranks with a Hornet, F-16, and maybe some other great airframes. The only other 1/72 NASA diecast I am aware of is a rare ERTL X-15 that I've only see once.

There's one on Ebay right now for $15. It can only be displayed gear up, and it has some big panel lines, but it's a cheap addition for variety.

Oops, definitely not the same aircraft. The Evergreen Museum F-104 is a 'G' model that's been painted as NASA F-104N (N813NA) which was the aircraft in which Pilot Joe Walker lost his life after colliding with the second XB-70 on 08 Jun 1966. Interestingly, aircraft 013 and 813 are the same aircraft. 013 was redesignated 813 in the year before the crash.

Cool paintjob, but the original NASA bird had a polished metal finish and wasn't grey.

On a side note, I dislike how so many US museums paint the canopies. It makes them look like big toys. Why do they do this?!

Revving this thread as with the new HM S-3 Viking model, they could now do the last US flying vikings with the NASA livery:



And from SuperKungFu's original post, this one is long overdue for HM to make:





Can't find good NASA die cast (HM or CW) on the secondary market, people love them and keep them. Another great one for HM to consider:





A good way to start off 2017.

I wonder how much detail they can get onto this model, as it's fairly small since it's 1:200. But nevertheless I'll probably get it...

I have a modest NASA 1:72 collection, kinda concentrating on the space stuff like Dragon's models and the beautifully made Bandai releases. This thread has kinda encouraged me more to get a couple more methinks.

However, as a small side issue, a Shuttle/Hubble combo from Bandai is my dream for NASA release. Either Discovery (Launch or Servicing Mission) or Endeavour, Columbia and Atlantis (servicing missions).

That would be a very very speccy release.

The Inflight 1:200 airliners are some of the best NASA die cast on the market at the present moment.
That's a shame as Century Wings and Inflight have done a much better job than Hobby Master to this point and there are plenty of good NASA liveries HM could do that would sell. For now, this is the best you will find:

Default Re: How about some NASA birds?

its actually a super guppy

try ebay item 302446082901

the seller has a few interesting aircraft for sale. he has spent a lot of time scratchbuilding various shapes, which makes the canberra and super guppy so unique. his actual paint finishes are ok but not spectacular which means that perhaps somebody might want to improve these a bit, but at the very modest price he's asking it's a steal. i got a folded wings big cabin skyraider off of him (awaiting arrival).

he's selling a very nice ac-130h gunship there at an absolute bargain price. again, the exterior fiinish is not perfect and I'm guesisng he build this before the italieri -A gunship kit came out and is probably kicking himself a bit for it, but still an amazing job scratchbuilding interior parts.
