  • What's next Alpha?

    Thanks for all the amazing aircraft you are creating Alpha!
    I have ordered my 1600mm spitfire and love my p-38 & Tigercat! I can't help but wonder what you are currently cooking up.........any chance of a hint?

    ! Wouldn't we all like to know!
    A couple years ago Alpha used to offer up a secret "project" name like the military does and you could only get close to what it actually was in a very round about sort of way. Nobody got even close using logic. Only WAG's. All good fun but don't hold your breath. All is very top secret and hush hush....

    Ditto's to the MRC team though. Last couple years have been beaucoup fun....

      Ha! The average interval between when a new product is delivered and when we're asked "what's next" is less than a week. Good fun

      For practical purposes including multinational language barriers, all of our projects have names. Sometimes those names reach the public ear, sometimes they don't. Sometimes those names are actually related to the model in a loosely identifiable way, sometimes they're completely random and undecipherable.

      If you're certain you want to waste the next couple of hours on Google trying to break the code while avoiding madness...

          Haha thanks for being a good sport Alpha
          BTW please dont take the question as ungratefuleness, its the by product of the amazing quality, stable, unique & great value models you are producing. I cant help but be excited about what your working on next

            Ha, I take it all in good fun as I said above, Wesnc! We're very grateful for everyone's support and neverending enthusiasm

            Compared to "Tennyson50", Project "Virtue" has a more logical albeit meandering path to describe the model it comprises. Starting right now, if anyone posts here and correctly articulates the correlation between the project name and the secret aircraft, I'll send them a gift certificate when the aircraft is officially announced. Starting date is now, ending date is when we officially announce the aircraft (or it's unofficially leaked, which as always we hope never happens).


            Just a disclaimer that it won't be easy, though --these are not supposed to be easily deciphered.

                Good catch, TSHobbies. Project Virtue is a jet, and Project Tennyson50 is a warbird. And as the first to give it a [somewhat] shot, I'll do you one better and confirm that Virtue is not an A7.

                  ah, no A-7 then, well that narrows it down lol hmmm.. good to know we'll soon have a new edf and prop to decide from then ! they both must be unusual considering the 'typical' planes have been done, and I doubt any of them will be ones that have been done over and over. hmmm..well, my P-61 guess stands , as for the jet, my last guess would be the F-35 ...just cant think of anything that you guys would attempt that hasnt been done yet. Exciting times indeed! curious, will we know by the end of the year?

                    I'm guessing F-22 for the jet. I mean, one HAS to be in the pipe somewhere down the line from Freewing. I'm guessing B-24 for warbird..

                      My guess on the next prop is Flightline 1600mm BF-109. Looking forward to the coupon.

                          Can we guess a list of what the next EDF will be ? If soooooo, here's my short list :

                          1. F-22
                          2: F-35
                          3: F-100
                          4. F-4
                          5. Mig-15
                          6. SR-71 (long overdue, ha-ha)
                          7. F-117
                          8. B-1
                          9. Rafale
                          10. Mig-29

                          I can see why some of these may never make it to production in the near future, but one can only hope.

                            Agree with almost everything on that list T-cat! You're missing a 106 and 105 though!

                              I thought about that , but didn't add it because I knew you would put those on it since I saw you in this thread already. I hope they make one of those for you!

                                You're going to have the development team working 24-7 with all those aircraft. You know, large flying clubs can request aircraft be developed... Those are all good choices. Thank you, Matt

                                  Ha-ha, that's for sure. Good thing Alpha is super human. That good man seems like he needs zero sleep to function properly.

                                    What's this "sleep" I keep hearing about? I'm suspicious of sleep... it feels like I'm practicing being dead... no thank you. I'd rather be eyes open all day and night making planes for all you jokers. :D


                                    Don't forget the first "AND" in my earlier post:

                                    "Starting right now, if anyone posts here and correctly articulates the correlation between the project name and the secret aircraft, I'll send them a gift certificate when the aircraft is officially announced."


                                    Who knows? If this becomes really interesting, I might send you the entire aircraft for free.

                                        , what's funny is when I see you, you always look so fresh/awake like you've slept for 10 hours.
