Yes, Miles Sparrow Hawk, good call!

Mark, whats a 'Vac' Chester Jeep - vacuform? Do you know who made it?
The only Jeep kit I can find reference to is the NKR 1/32 resin.


Malc, Yes, vacuform. I dont know who made it. Ive see it on Ebay, ever so often. They go for 20.00USD or so. Iv got the Cessna 140, very-very crud, but a start. Wish I could help more. I look at the 140 kit again to make sure I didnt overlook a manufacture, and let you know.

Here's a few more I'd like to see, all 1/48.
Steve Wittman's Bonzo or Buster.
Rivets
Tony Le Vier's Cosmic Wind.
D.H.71 Tiger Moth (monoplane).
Avro Avian.
Percival Vega Gull.
Can't understand why most of these have been ignored and why the manufacturers put their energy into failures or one-offs, interesting as they are.
Thus we have a Bugatti (never flew), a Crusader (didn't work well), a Gloster VI (ditto), a Hughes (succesful but really a one-off) and a comic characters seaplane.
All the ones on my list had a variety of schemes, existed in several forms (plenty to keep the kit basher busy) and were phenomenally successful.
Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful that some of the above exist but not in preference to so many of the others.
Modelling's a funny old world ain't it?

Hello Aminne,
Re the S4, I know and Marsh have served racing aircraft well but they're extremely expensive and I don't like 1/32. Atelier Noix did some lovely kits in 1/48 way back but they were also expensive (less so than Marsh) and are now no longer around. Pity no-one else picked up the moulds!

Yes, the Curtiss 18-T! Does anyone know if there are any kits of this? Especially 1:72 or 1:48?
