Hi,

As far as I am aware, only Hasegawa and Frog have produced this kit in 1/72 scale (apart from one example in 1/144 scale)...Are there any other makes and scales? (and which one would you recommed, assuming that it is even still possible to buy one?).

I am guessing that the Hasegawa kit will be head and shoulders above anything else, so if anyone knows where I can get hold of one, I would be gratful. Is there a 1/48 vacform version of this aircraft?

Many thanks

Derek

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Hasegawa and Frog kits were one and the same. I have an old Hasegawa issue and it is quite nice really, it has also just been re released I believe so is relatively easy to get hold of.

It would be a bit of a handful in 48th, it's a pretty big bird!

Jen.

Thanks Doc and Jen...The search shall continue.

1/48 is big, but this is one aircraft which demands 'presence' Wink (which reminds me, are there any good plans for this aircraft).

Cheers

The Frog boxing is Hasegawa tooling.

It's bulky, but it would have a smaller wingspan than a B-29. It never struck me as a particularly pretty flying boat. Somehow, the Sunderland IS, to my eyes. The Mavis, OTOH, IS pretty.

The Japanese company ARII produced an "EMILY" in 1:144 scale a few years ago, they are available second hand occasionally.
Its a lovely kit, all recessed panel lines, I picked one up last year and its on my to make list to go with the Trumpeter Type 97 "MAVIS" I am currently building

General Melchett is doing a 1:144 Emily over at Britmodeller. This is an LS boxing, presumably the same tooling as ARII?
