Thank you for posting the picture. (Definitely had my hands on the figures first  ;)) Admittedly I know begger all about aircraft kits but I suspect that one cost more than all of my sea planes put together.  All the same Its a nice looking set.

Totally forgot to add this ,when it arrived.
These are both money boxes from the same manufacturer (Ertl.)
The white one is surprisingly heavy in comparison to the red one .Even more so when you forget it's metal and pick it up.

You probably forgot you had loaded it with pound coins.

Does anyone know what scales the New Ray diecasts turn out? My local Toyworld have gotten a restock of the four WW2 planes (B-25, DC-3, B-17 and B-29) as well as a new series of classic aircraft with Red Bull sponsorship.

I don't trust what it says in the catalogue...

I apologize for this boring photo of a model plane still in the styrofoam in its box. I don't want to take it out of the box until I'm ready to put it on the game table. But I just stopped by my storage unit and took this photo on a whim, wanting to show it off here anyway.

This is a 1:48 scale Franklin Mint Ju-52 French civilian airliner:



On second thought, I'd better not leave such a lame photo up here for long. I'll have to get this out of the box and take some better photos.

Yes. In fact, you must take some photos of it in a game. :)

great piece of equipment. will you keep it "factory fresh" or weather it to a more used condition?

No plans to weather any of my planes or vehicles at the moment. To much other stuff to do.

I’ve seen them in the box. The B-25 is supposed to be 1/72, I suspect it’s smaller. They are all essentially fit the box, so none of them will scale with 28mm. The one that does is the P-40, which does, roughly, work out at around 1/48, being a bit larger than my Hobby Boss one. Alas it’s a disaster in terms of detail, with the undecarriage completely wrong and the cockpit and integral pilot toy like. If I can be ever be bothered it will get converted into a crashed wreck.

Pity cos their helicopters are great little models and some are ideally scaled.

Great looking model. What's the wingspan measure? 1:48 scale -- I'm guessing it must be close to 2'?

Cool!

But why buy a completed model instead of making it yourself?  That's half the fun.

If you're anywhere near the Bay Area in California, I'll help you with all your model building needs.  :-)

A 1/48 Ju 52 would be massive - well over 2' wingspan... Not sure if this is true 1/48. Very interested in seeing how this looks on the table and next to miniatures to get a sense of how she really scales.
