Thanks, looking on eBay now.

The Junkers F.13 is a favorite of mine. It was available from 1919. Here's the wiki article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkers_F.13

The first few images in this google image search are of the Franklin Mint 1:48 scale model of the F-13, float plane version:

https://www.google.com/search?q=Junkers+f-13+beni&rlz=1C1EODB_enUS567US568&espv=210&es_sm=93&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=AdUMU9ipN4_voASGzIDwAQ&ved=0CCYQsAQ&biw=1391&bih=747

Franklin Mint produced at least three earlier 1:48 scale wheeled versions of the Junkers F.13, but I imagine they are hard to find now.

Yes, that's a good Pulp plane. I do like the float plane version. I see that Revell make a 1/72 kit but I can't find a 1/48?

It turns out that Blitzkrieg Miniatures are planning a line of 1/56 aircraft. I assume they'll be concentrating on WWII models (they have a Stuka up as a preview), but I emailed them to see if they maybe plan other planes that might be usable for the interwar period.

Michi, Love the Duck!
The AAR where it lands next to the Doreen is a classic!

The Junkers F.13 is a favorite of mine. It was available from 1919. ...Franklin Mint produced at least three earlier 1:48 scale wheeled versions of the Junkers F.13, but I imagine they are hard to find now.
I love this plane to and wish I could buy a Franklin Mint one.

Here are two more I wish I had the cash to purchase;

1/48ish diecast Twin Beech

look on ebay for John Deere Twin Beech
20-30$ + S&H

and this beauty, a diecast 1/50ish Electra Jr that is sweet

it comes in silver paint and a limited edition polish metal  :-*
look on ebay for wings of texaco 17 lockheed electra
$50 on up + S&H

I think both of these are perfect for pulp airfield, smugglers, etc.

Also, here are a pair of rocket planes WIP from http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=62140.0

Thanks for all the kind words.
Here it is with a bit of greenstuff and the figure for Lonestar, the Cowboy of the Skys!


Lonestar is the famous Lobster Johnson fig with a hat from the Reaper Bones Shadow figure.
Now for some paint.

And with all these do gooders rocketing around, there needs to be a bad guy to fight [or Bad Girl  ;)]

The Red Baroness and her infamous Flying Wing!

Its just the 1/48 testors Komet sans rudder to give it that wingish look.

Amalric

Winglets?
Gents, thanks for the idea.  ;D


Now I got to paint them  :?
So much to paint and so little time.

A couple of 1930s 1/48 scale planes I recently acquired. Still waiting for decent weather to prime and paint them.

Curtiss P6E


Gee Bee model R race plane



My 1930's air power blog post for my VACW game. The models are perfectly suited for pulp games too, and really cheap. The struts on the P6 were a pain though.

Fine Molds do a nice range of 1/48 sea planes from the Studio Ghibli film "Porco Rosso"

I've got the SAVOIA S.21 Seaplane

Great thread!

I have the Testors Gee Bee Racer and Curtiss Racer for my Pulp Adventure plans... though only Gee Bee has been partly painted so far.

edit: forgot to mention that I do plan to add machine-gun pods to them :D

There is some more great stuff here. Those FineMolds kits are really good. I'm just finishing the Curtiss RC3-0 and it is a really well-made kit. I've just got to put the transfers on and I've got a propeller from the USA that looks like it's whirling round (if I paint it right!) but I can't remember the company name. I'll post it here when I find the website.

It's called Prop Blur and they have a UK distributor as well now.

Michi, that black and white shot is superb (well it's all superb). How did you do the mist effect for the photo?

A couple of additions to the list:

Minicraft's Skyrocket (as in Blackhawk Squadron).

Testor's Grumman Goose.
