So excited about a Kitty Hawk release.

My ultimate Navy aircraft of WWII may surprise some. The OS2U Kingfisher.

Don't know why but I love it. Just looks great to me. So, how excited am I that Kitty Hawk just announced that the 1/48 is a mistake, it's going to be 1/32.

I don't care what's on the bench, when this comes I'm all over it.

What's everyone else think?

I can appreciate another 1/32 release but not a fan of this plane. Come to think of it i hardly build american stuff.

Still cool though.

I think it's one of those releases many have asked for but once it gets here you don't see built that much. Like the P61.

I truly understand that "resonance" one can feel with some aircraft. My wife keeps telling me that it has something to do with reincarnation; I think it's more to do with what first grabbed my attention as a kid... :)

 

Regardless - follow your bliss, so to speak! I look forward to watching your build, when it happens.

 

I am working my way though my short list of planes that call to me (for whatever reason!). I want to do each of them in 1/32 before I'll move on to other types.

Echo the sentiments that it's great to see another 32nd scale release but personally I'm waiting with anticipation for the Mirage IIIC release coming from Italeri. I know the IIIE is what most folk want to see but l just want to do a 6 Day War lDF one.

Cant wait for it!  The OS2U is SUPER DUPER ugly with the wheels on it, but the ungainly looking single float and out-rigger floats is really cool IMHO.  REALLY looking forward to this one!!!

I think the Kingfisher is a cool aircraft, built one vacform and turned out pretty satisfactory, but KH has already made some cancellations on kits they were going to release in 1/32nd scale, like the F11F Tiger, which apparently had a "bad selling rep" ............go figure, even BEFORE it was to be released....i'm a little disappointed, and that's an understatement.

Yes!  Very Ugly!  But I'm with you on planes meaning something because of childhood memories.  I believe I saw it on one of the battleships when i was a tot and the awe of it all!  I

 

I will be grabbing one of these myself.

Actually pretty excited about this one too

I saw a stunning one in 1/48 recently - perched on a scratch-built catapult & masterfully weathered in multiple "sun-faded" shades of blue

I second the HpH catapult comment/wish. I built their Arado catapult & love the result! They take commissions based on numbers so if enough folks were willing to pre-order one, they might consider it ...?
