  • That would be very cool. I lost my primo float site years ago with urban sprawl, but I could find somewhere to fly it.

It has great lines, and would be well suited to belly landing on grass or snow as well. The HK Albatross has had a good following, would be great to see something different.

      • Any float plane would need to come with water for me to buy it. I'm in the desert.

        • I'm glad HK is bringing out some nice warbirds since Flightline got discontinued . Flightline was suppose to have a series of hand toss warbirds, but only the Mustang and Dora was produced. Thank you HK for the Lucky Gallon Corsair.

                Do you mean Marvel comics "pretend", fantasy airplane? Here's the closest thing to it ............................

                "Fully functional, large and fast" .......................... Are you prepared to pay $3000.00 per copy for something that'll fly for a few minutes at a time? I doubt Freewing would be willing to make something that costs that much. Rene was going to sell them but at that price, he couldn't sell enough to make it worth his while. Wishing and dreaming is fun but then reality nails you square in the bank account.
                Some of their planes are approaching a thousand bucks. Once that happens, the marketplace will shrink to miniscule proportions. It's unlikely that Motion/Freewing are so quick to ring the death bell.

                • How about something with a prop on it!

                    Be careful, they might say look at BlackHorse or Nexa. Just like me, I think Grossman56 means FLIGHTLINE. Well, there is HobbyKing. Even though I would rather have something from FlightLine.

                    • Yes indeed... a big wide scale prop! ...on a nice big Dora!

                      • It's amazing how many of y'all keep misspelling BF-109...

                        • Actually, the picture is of a Spanish Buchon, a Spanish manufactured ME (Bf) 109G with a Rolls Royce engine as they ran out of DB601's. A bit of history, one of the pilots who flew with the Battle of Britain movie company took a number of Spits and Buchons to Texas in lieu of wages. Interesting video and articles

                              It would have been a 'so that's where I put them' moment!

                          • I actually have a book on the making of he movie that I've had since I was a kid, Connie is mentioned in it as a member of the Confederate Airforce. Didn't seem to have too much to say about the Commemorative Airforce though. Anyway, great to see that they all went to good homes and will enrich the Warbird community. Pretty strange to see the same planes you can plainly pick out in the movie sitting in pieces.
                            Sorry guys, getting off topic.

                              GM, as a past "Confederate Air Force" member in good standing, the name was "suggested" to be changed to 'Commemorative' for all the wrong reasons, but there you have it. I was a member in good standing in the "Commemorative AF" for the record, But alas, that was a long time ago, in a life far far away.. Best, LB

                                My folks visited Harlingen Air Field back in the day and brought me a CAF calendar and T shirt which I cherished. Rag Wings and Heavy Iron by Martin Caiden still graces my bookshelf, a great story on the CAF.
